The wind is out of my sails

It looks like I am having a major setback and might not make it to Pasadena after all.

I got some bad news from my doctor yesterday about my CD57 test it dropped back down to 19 after climbing to 57. What happened I thought I was feeling better in general, I have had headaches for the last week and joint pain so I did sort of feel as if I was in the beginning again so what happened?

I had more blood tests today ...same CD57 test in two different counties at different labs to see if the test was wrong or if we can find some inconsistencies.

I am seeing my doctor tomorrow and we will decide if I should cancel my whole trip, it just might be too much for me. I have been having a few issues but in general I thought I was doing really well. My attitude has been great - I believed I was on the winning side but the news just took me out and let the wind out of my sails.

  1. I am so sorry to hear you're going through this! I just found your blog after watching Watercolor in Motion. My grandfather had Bell's Palsy but at the time I don't think anyone attributed it to Lyme's disease. He spent lots of time outdoors on his Texas ranch so it easily could have been. His eventually resolved....My prayers for your recovery and peace of mind are offered. --Carol C.
