These tests show results for two different infections: HGE (called Human Anaplasmosis now), and HME (Human monocytic ehrlichia). They are similar organisms, and are considered the easiest of the coinfections to get rid of.
Treatment for both HGE and HME is Doxycycline, possibly a few others. I also think the core Buhner protocol, and some of the other herbal protocols, can kill these two coinfections (Anaplasmosis, and HME).
On the progression, because you show both elevated IgM and IgG titers for the HGE, this means your body is currently in the process of converting the IgM to the IgG type of antibodies. Remember, according to the traditional infectious disease model, IgM antibodies are created during active infection, and then the body converts the IgM antibodies into IgG antibodies after a couple months. This may mean that your current treatment is helping, or that your immune system is kicking this infection, or that the infection is going "underground" (going into hiding - thus "progressing").
So I think the best thing to do is talk about these results with your current LLMD, and ask about treatment options (since I seem to remember that you had a lot of difficulty tolerating the doxycycline).
