Risa finished up her last dose of doxy yesterday. So now it's up to her immune system to take care of everything. Fingers crossed. I won't know anything for sure til October when we redo her C6.

I also recently ordered Tick Flick'r from Earthly Remedies by Erin to try. It hasn't arrived yet but a friend of mine recommended it. Figure it's worth a shot. I only plan on using preventative when I am knowingly taking her into ticky areas.

Remember, october is the endpoint, when the C6 should be stable. If you see symptoms, you can test again, say in 3 months. If the C6 isn't lower, or has increased, that still tells you something.

This is one area where the cornell multiplex has an advantage.

With luck, she will be okay!

I hope she's okay. I have enough stuff to worry about with her already.

Good to know that I can still test if something feels off even if it's 'early.'

Jamie, I am so sorry to hear about what you've been going through with Risa. I had a GSD years ago that had Lyme disease. He came from Ohio and picked up the disease there. He recovered well, but never seemed quite 100%. Back then they didn't know as much as they do today though. I now have a tick problem, but started my on thread so I don't take over on this one. I wish you the very best with your precious Risa.

Risa had blood drawn for her C6 on Saturday and I got the results back today. Her C6 level was 65 in January. It is now less than 10 (I guess they don't measure specifically under 10). Her Lyme is effectively in remission! HOORAY!!!

I just hope it never comes back.

This is REALLY good news!

Just to play debbie downer here a bit, the C6 is but one measurement, so do be on the lookout for signs and symptoms, but great that that number is low!

Ris' signs were very minor before so it'll be tough to catch them again. Especially with so many of the Lyme symptoms to look for (fearful behaviors for one) are part of Ris' daily life. I will be certain to keep an eye on her, though. That will never change!
