In utero

My 2nd son (6 years old) tested positive on the Western Blot for Lyme.  I was always a bit suspicious and now my fears are confirmed.  He had a few signs, like dark circles around his eyes, a raging thirst all the time, and behavioural problems.

He is most likely to have got it in utero, which also probably means that my wife and our youngest two twins have it (they have dark circles under their eyes too).  Thankfully my eldest seems asymptomatic.

Under advice from my doctor, I’m trying number two out with some Samento and Banderol. He says we should see an improvement in behaviour in 4-6 weeks and then we can consider moving on to antibiotics.

As for the wife – once I am stable we’ll try her out with some doxycycline to see if she herxes.  We don’t want her debilitated by treatment at the same time as me…

Oh no, I am so sorry. I hope catching it so young will give him a good chance of recovery
