Thats's my problem, I try to read into things and like I said, I shouldn't have been in the room. I tend to also look at worse case scenarios, because that is what my life has thrown at me over the last several years. I did research and see that as many as 10% have it and many are asymtomatic. My problem is, I see the other portion that do have symptoms, which she does, that also require valve replacements, etc.
I just see it as a very scary thing as Lyme is a bacerial infection and one of the risks with Mitral Valve Prolapse is infection. Then, I put 2+2 together and realize how Lyme Disease wreaks havoc on many of the major organs in the body, what it has done to some of my organs, and I worry. I am feeling a bit better today because I have to sometimes take a deep breath and say "I can't change this."
I just know I have been through he!! and I fear for her!
I appreciate your support!
