I am writing on behalf of a friend. Her 15 y.o. daughter is very sick. Completely paralyzed, on a ventilator, being fed through a g-tube. She has what appears to be the Bartonella rash and has tested positive for bartonella in the past. She initially had a numb arm and it has progressed to complete paralysis. The daughter is at home, not in a hospital and they are in need of finding a LLMD to come to them. One doctor has offered at a cost of $10,000, which is unreasonable. If anyone has an idea of where they could get help PLEASE let me know.

God Bless!

Lymelight,

Oh my gosh! How terrible. I'm so sorry this child has to go through this. There is a forum you can post to that will give you a doctors name that is closest to where your friend is. I don't know the name, but I will keep this post bumped up for you so that someone else can post it.

You are a good friend:). Good luck with everything.

Illnesses:-Chronic Lyme Disease,Hashimotos Thyroiditis, Ulcers, Hypoglycemia
Medications:-Biaxin 250mg to start,Mepron,Ultram,Thyro Complex 60mg,Probiotics and supplements

Hi limelight3,
 
You are such a wonderful caring person!  If you would like additional information to help your friend's daughter, please e-mail me.  
 
I will be keeping this girl in my prayers,

lymelight3, where is this teen located? 

There are some great suggestions here.  I also suggest calling International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS).   Their contact information can be found at http://www.ilads.org/contact/contact_ilads.html

My heart goes out to this girl and her family.
