This is why I hate ticks

That is what it looks like. I have Lyme disease. The test came back negative but that is common for early onset Lyme's. We suspect Shawn may have it so now we are both on antibiotics that make us sensitive to the sun.

I have been rather slow about updating so I will make a few long posts over the next few days. Coming up are pictures from two family reunions.

  2. Aww, that’s awful! Ticks are vectors of harmful diseases. Have you heard of the Rocky Mountain spotted fever or RMSF? My cousin suffered from it two years ago when an American Dog Tick bit his legs. From then on, we have organized a tick control strategy that involves using acaricide sprays.
