• Appointment

    I’m very overwhelmed… Nadia’s doctor and I talked over Zoom for over an hour. She does want to treat Nadia for Lyme believing it’s a current infection due to the strains that showed up on the IGeneX test.

  • Follow-up Appt

    I’m nervous. Nadia’s follow up appointment is in an hour during which we will discuss all her test results, including what her positive Lyme results mean. I fired the nanny and a new one started today. So far much better, time will tell! I’ll update after the appointment.

Fast forward to last week. I’ll get to all Nadia’s improvements in a bit, but… Nadia had…
