Will your wife's friend listen to your wife about lyme disease possibility?


Hopefully she will and her daughter will get timely treatment

Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear this, Serfr!

Do you happen to know the type of rashes (i.e. Bullseye? Butterfly?) the daughter had and/or where the rashes were located?

Was this a recent event?

I understand about not being in a position to butt-in. The best we can do is share information and let others make their own choices. It's tough, because, as you're well-aware, there's a limited window of opportunity, after the bite, that will never be available again.

If they're open to information, here's something you can share:
