OH, it's gonna happen alright, GM, it's gonna happen, no doubt.
AND, thank you so much! And likewise to you! I just want to say this about the CD57 test. Dr said he believes it is more accurate than the WB, esp if the WB came from Quest, and if lyme infection has been long term, which is difficult w/ the WB. My understanding is that the CD57 can help give an idea of how long the lyme has persisted. It can also, likewise, be helpful in determining when someone is getting better. He said that if treatment is stopped after the CD57 improves, but not completely normal, then a person cannot be considered cured and recurrence is likely.I am very anxious for the results of this test!
