Johnson Co, KS. Quite a few in KC metro area confirmed w/ Lyme, but I don't know numbers. All the LLMDs here are full. I probably got the tick from Shawnee Mission Park, which has supposedly has the highest density of deer inthe country. The park is so over populated, they are trying to figure out what to do. Signs there tell us that several dogs had confirmed cases of Rock Mt. sp fever.
As my signature says, I believe I also contracted some type of TBI in Asheville, NC in 1972. I got very sick about a week after that bite (and the tick was engorged), but Drs only knew to look for Rocky Mt back then. I dont' know what i had, but will solve this someday.
