Can My Husband Please Catch A Break?

Just when my husband Keith was recovering well from 10 cracked ribs, 3 broken lower vertebrae, a head wound, and a partridge in a pear tree – he discovered a tick on his stomach.  My first fear was LYME DISEASE – NO!  He went to the doctor the day after discovering this tick as the rash was getting worse.  The doctor and Keith are both pretty sure it was a wood tick and not a deer tick.  Apparently, deer ticks are more likely to carry Lyme disease than wood ticks, at least in this part of the country.  But, just to be on the safe side, Keith and his doctor decided to go with the protocol to treat Lyme disease, which is three weeks of antibiotics (as opposed to two weeks for a wood tick bite).  He took his final antibiotic pill last week, and everything is fine.  I swear, I'm close to making him wear an astronaut space suit for protection now whenever he ventures outdoors 🙂
