I Didn't Know :((((((((((((((
With little kids sometimes they get viruses that we just gotta let take their coarse. But with my son ~ the fever was on its third day and he developed a weird rash on his stomach. He couldn't move his neck, and he was simply crying and couldnt stand the TV on, no noise whatsoever. I called my sister as I was worried about this strange rash on his stomach and the stiff neck he was getting. She advised me to rush him to the ER, as I did. The rash on his stomach had a bullseye in the middle of it. The doctor took a look and blood work, and told me he has Lyme Disease in the second stage. I've never seen a tick on him, and noone told me about the tick problem in this area ~ I feel so bad for him. I feel this really affected him physically. He is active and had his treatment, but they say affects can last a lifetime. I pray he is OK. In my eyes he's still a baby. He was only 6.
I hurt for him because he isn't able to communicate how he feels sometimes. He stopped talking, and now, I'm at a loss as to what to do. I feel he shut down. :(
