Is this your family?

I bet you know what people are thinking -- but they don't look sick.

All four in mine; and three out of four of us currently have PICC lines or Ports. My husband, the fourth, recently got his PICC removed after 7 months of Rocephin. He is not better.

2 of the 6 of us are newly diagnosed and symptomatic. We are on abx as we await lab results for co-infections. My 15 yr. old daughter sees an ID on Mon. Her regular blood work with pediatrician revealed EBV and abnormal white blood cells. My college kids are reluctant to get tested.

My husband had it years ago but caught it early with bull's eye rash.

I'm thinking (and praying I'm wrong) that 6 of the 6 of us most likely have it. Everyone's young joints click. Feel like I'm living in a surreal nightmare. We are part of a plague.

Peace and strength to all.

3 out of 4 of us have tested positive. My son has not been tested but I'm almost positive he has it too.

Count us in for a family full of Lyme too. 5 out of the 6 of us for sure have Lyme and at least one co-infection, the littlest who is 3 hasn't shown any symptoms yet so he hasn't been tested.

Do you get tired of hearing people ask how in the world did you ALL get Lyme?

Me, my dad and my aunt. We live in Italy and we all have coinfections too. I can't believe who says we don't get coinfections in Europe!
