I also have happy news today! I finish one of my IV antibiotics called Ampacillian last week and I started my new IV antibiotic yesterday. I mastered another antibiotic and am moving forward in my treatment. I feel like I won a video game or something. It doesn't really matter except I get to go to the next level, which makes me happy. I am one step closer (hopefully) to being done with this battle. No, I still don't know WHEN I will be done...I only know that I'm making progress. I had a really good doctors appointment a few days ago too and can report that my body is responding well to the naturopathic treatment I started. If I haven't clarified, I now am seeing two specialists for my Lyme disease, one that uses primarily Western medicine, and one that uses primarily Chinese medicine. Which is awesome because I get the best of both worlds and they complement each other really well :D
For no reason, that I can identify, my shaking has dropped significantly. I am almost wanting to say I am not struggling with the shaking because that would be a lie, but whatever was causing it is no longer an issue. Honestly, I think it was a parasite die-off reaction due to the full moon. (If you just read that sentence and think I'm off my rocker, it's so strange but so true.) When it's a full moon parasites basically have sex orgy parties in my body and I am on strong parasite killers. So I imagine them getting their groove thing on and then dying from my parasite poison medicine! Buwahahaha!
My kidney pain is WAY better and my oral antibiotics took care of the minor infection that climbed up into my kidneys.
I've shown pictures of my picc-line and of my port and now I am showing you what my port looks like without being accessed (meaning there is no needle probing into to purple power port that was surgically placed into my pectoral muscle). But seriously as I look at these pictures I keep thinking about Chandler, from FRIENDS, and his third nipple, I mean 'nubbin'. LOL.
