Got the news back from the blood test regarding Lyme disease that was taken last week. The test was negative for Lyme disease. This is why it is so important to get medical attention quickly after a bite is discovered. The sooner you get on antibiotics the better the chance of being in the 80% of those who are cured. The disease needs to get arrested and destroyed before it can enter the bloodstream which is at 4 weeks. Once in the bloodstream it is far more difficult to destroy.
