Surely to Put a Spring in Your Step!

Well, hello there... How have you all been since February? Hopefully you didn't think I was gone away. I know it's been a while.

Well I have some very good info to pass along! How about that?!?! After 1 1/2 years of treatment, I think we have finally stumbled onto greatness as far as a strategy is concerned. Now, since it's been a while, I will start back at where I left you all.

I've been doing the Glutathione pushes weekly. This continues to be a great help.

After 16 weeks of IV Rocephin, I have switched to IV Invanz. This is a new antibiotic and with that, of course, comes a pretty hefty price tag. I pray my insurance doesn't pull any fast ones on us. The two best things about Invanz is that #1 because it is so new, there is very little resistance to it, and #2, I only have to infuse once a day!!! Hooray!!!

Not much had been happening since I blogged last, so don't feel like you've missed out. Lyme is such a long-term treatment. We are marathon warriors, people. Endurance, endurance, endurance.

There is one thing I can't help but bubble over with pride to you all, though. My eldest of Lyme warrior offspring, Ab, just recently participated in her very first musical. This is something near and dear to my heart, as I have quite a history in the theatrical world. I was so proud to coach her vocally (it's something I do), and hear that she walked away from auditions with the LEAD!!!

Here she is, post-closing night performance, with her flowers and excitement. What a great kid.
That's right, FOUR bouquets of gorgeous flowers!
Even with the struggles of Lyme, she puts herself out there and lives with excellence. Of course, she comes home every night and has mom rub her aching muscles down with some essential oils... but more about that in the next post. ;)

I am so honored to have you all out there, reading along and joining me – in your own ways – in this fight. Please stick with us. We have a ways to go. I hope our story brings inspiration and maybe even a few answers or starting places for your own paths.

Big smiles and happy Spring, everybody!

    And am Very glad things are going better.

    1. I am so very proud of the steps she takes. She has truly cracked that outer shell and has stepped into a new life; one where she is making a path for herself instead of shyly watching others move about. :)
