Temps Dropped. Mom too...

We'll be back soon! We would have been back sooner but "something" bit Mom on the back of her leg. (No, it WASN'T me.) Mom says it was a spider but the Doctor Man disagreed. (NO bite pictures will be posted.)

Doctor Man said: "Tick Bite"!
Mom said: "That big red spot doesn't look like a "bullseye" to me.

Doctor Man replied: "you can't see back there".

Guess who won. Not Mom!

Mom had to take 2 nasty pills every day for 10 days to prevent Lyme Disease "just in case". I have to tell you......those pills were no friend to Mom. She was queasy every day and had to lie still most of the time. The flashy box was left in the knitting basket under the window and the battery got deaded. Now that the pills are finished, she is starting to feel better but she just needs a little more "down" time.

Oh wow! I sure am sorry that happened! A friend of mine in MA had the same thing happen to her. Get better quickly please!

Take all the time you need...we'll be right here when you return!

Watch out, Gizzy!
Mom is probably scheming new shots to get once she is feeling better!

Oh Giz we are 100% sure you gave Mom lots of TLC!!! We are so glad that the Dr. Man didn't mess around with the bite. We hear Lyme's Disease is very very bad stuff!!!
We hope the flashy gets all charged and you can start out next week with a bang. Madi and Mom

Hope you're feeling fine and dandy soon. We Okies simply refer to any tick borne illness as "Tick Fever." As in, "She come down with tick fever and got the headache." LOL
