pdessena, it is so unfair that you will have to drive so far in order for you son to receive proper treatment!
If his PCP diagnosed lyme, then would he not consider also treating your son? It just amounts to giving him the abx for 4-5 weeks longer. If he has the dreaded co-infections, all of them will not be eradicated by the one abx, and you will then have to deal w/ those. An LLMD would be best for diagnosing any co-infections
