If you have a chance, please go watch this video of her. She was my buddy, my support system. She was everything that the Lyme Disease community needed and now she is gone and I am really pissed about it. http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=jKqAGtubD3M
I left a message yesterday for Tracie to call me so I know definitely what happened. Leslie was sick for years before a diagnosis. The way I am understand it is she died from Lyme but that is only by what Tracie has on her voicemail and the website. I want to talk with Tracie but she is a mess and then I left her a message and by the time I was done leaving it, I was sobbing. Leslie was the best! I will keep you posted. Yes, their website is the best one out there. Alot the website was done by Tracie because Leslie was so sick. They definitely do not hold back on there either. They speak the truth on there! Tracie sent me a taping of a radio show she did and I must have listened to it 10 times. Very humble people though. Leslie probably got hundreds of people into the right doctors. Minnesota has such a high number of people infected (sad thing is like most people, they do not even know they have.)
(My cardiologist FINALLY admitted to me that a young girl came in with heart block, it was because of a tick bite. 17 years old and almost died. You know what I say? DUH. What is it going to take but at least he is more open to listening to me vent now. I think when I was first bitten and had the skipping beats, pounding heart, he thought I was creating my own anxiety. (If doctors do not know what they are looking for, how in the world will they ever find it?")
I wrote to you about Dr. S. a while back but you know me, I am always sending your e-mails to the wrong address! lol! The girl went to see him and received her results yesterday. She tested pos. for L.D. and babesia. Now, what is horrible is she tested pos. last January, the doctor never gave her the results, was tested by another doctor, that came back negative, tested pos with Dr. S through Igenex and now she is another victim to the craziness of this infection but the good news is she starts treatment today. I need to talk with you soon! I miss you, just so darn busy with work, trying to keep the house afloat, doggy, kitties etc. I am going now. I am going down to visit my dad before work today. Let's catch up soon sweetie!
