Richard’s Mom, Terri, was so quick to get this update back to me! I emailed her to check in, and the next day she replied. I am so grateful for her willingness to share updates about her son’s progress with me, and anyone else reading this blog! Give Terri and Richard some love in the comments section 🙂
Treatment dates: April 13 – April 24, 2015
I really noticed the change at about six weeks. After the six week mark, he started feeling really good, and has been good ever since!
If he still has symptoms, please list your top 5-10 symptoms and rate each on a scale of 1-10. (1 = mild and 10 = severe)
He has not had any of the old symptoms, and is back in school and functioning like he was before he was sick.
Please rate his overall well-being today, using a percentage. For example, 100% would be in perfect health and symptom free.
Immediately after treatment he was OK, he was better but nowhere near where he is now at 5 1/2 months. This has been the longest stint he has not been sick in over 4 years. He told me to stop worrying because “he is not sick anymore.” His mental attitude is so positive which I think helped his progress. He seems very strong and confident, and we are so relieved and happy after the grueling 4 years in and out of different treatment protocols. At this moment, he is 100% and symptom free.
Isn’t this GREAT news?!?!? I was SO excited and happy to hear form Terri with this update. It is so wonderful that he is back to his “Pre-Lyme” self and that he said “he’s not sick anymore”. What a blessing for him and his entire family! It is great he will able to enjoy his teenage years free from Lyme! I’ll be checking in with them again at the one year mark.
