It’s been awhile since I’ve updated on The Lyme Disease journey-
Quick over-view: it’s been almost 5 years, Wow. Our beautiful 1st child showed a rash (2014) that Urgent Care could not determine and 2 years later (2016) she became sick… very sick.
Many, many doctors/specialists weighed in but it was Dr. Gary Berliner of Chestatee Emergent that finally diagnosed her and began antibiotics (2017). Out of 11 “bars,” (CDC scale for Lyme Disease) Sarah had 7, along with an “advanced case of mononucleosis.”
Months went by with so many prescriptions. Loads of antibiotics attacked the nasty tick-borne bacteria. In many ways she began to recover: driving, working, moving out again on her own. Even her eyesight improved greatly. Dizziness & nausea continued but were managed by meds.
She traveled to Europe and did pretty well. Then Late last year (2018) it started again. Symptoms increased, dizziness & nausea became unbearable. Fevers every 3 or 4 days and an inability to keep foods down. She finally had to stop working again.
Recently through a family at our church, we learned of another immuno-support therapy for cancer patients called SOT: Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique. Cancer and Chronic Lyme Disease patients have been finding total remission!!
It’s worth a shot or rather a one-time “infusion,” if it can kick her body into healing. I’m hopeful (she’s not). I’ll let you know what happens 😬❤️
