Melissa, well, it sure looks like her Mycoplasma levels are a problem, but I don't know much about Mycoplasma. AS for her WB bands, 23-25 are outer surface protein C (OspC), specific for Bb, so I believe that is significant. From everything I have read and based on what my Dr has said, just one species specific band indicates Lyme. There are no false positives on WB bands. (ie; one can get a false positive TEST, simply because the CDC counts so many bands that are NOT lyme specific, but the bands themselves do not falsely show positive)
Now, it is possible that it indicates a past Lyme infection and not an active infection, so diagnosis depends on all other clinical data, plus other lab work that can support an active infection diagnosis.
I am sorry but I do not know anything about her other issues.
I have a daughter as well, so I sympathize with you and your concerns. I hope you have a good Dr, and even if you do, perhaps getting more opinions in this would be in order, because her issues sound severe.
