Another long drive -- 292 miles each way. But I wanted to be there when the governor signed the historic patient notification bill.

All patients in Virginia who are tested for lyme will now be given information that says the test results can be false negative and I think they will get some info on how to follow-up if needed.

A big thanks to National Capital Lyme and everyone who worked behind the scenes to get the bill passed.

I also spoke to a legislative aide for the top health care legislator in Virginia who wants me to send info on my suggestion that a law be passed requiring hospitals to consult with outside physicians for hospitalized patients. So now I have a new project to work on.

It is of course too late for Steve, but maybe I can get something passed that will benefit others.

Hopefully the congressman and senators will be able to change things for all the states.

I would have liked to have been there, but we are in MI right now. It was fitting, for me, that the park it was signed at is the park where I was bitten.

My delegate, who had held office since 1994, was up for re-election a couple weeks ago. I found out that he actually voted "no" for this bill. I couldn't believe it. I have never been a one issue voter but I became one. He lost the election.

That is good news about the bill. I hope you can get your bill passed too and it honors Steve by naming it after him.

Progress is glacial but it will eventually grind everything in its path. This is great news! Massachusetts needs to get going and pass their long term antibiotic treatment legislation. This is one progressive issue that Massachusetts is way behind on.
