Oh LymeMother, I"m so sorry!! But the good news is that at least you now know. Now you can get treatment and then get on with life, instead of unknowingly setting yourself up for a major illness when something that should have been more minor, lowered your immune function just a little too much. That would most definitely be harder to come back from.
As PeteZa said, it's actually fairly common for multiple family members to have these infections. Like your family, we have a tendency to go to the same places often. Somehow, my family lucked out and I'm the only one that was infected until recently (2014) when my hubby was infected for a very short time.
Know that you have good resources and a wonderful community to help both you and your son through this!
