Well, the Anaplasma saga continues.....
I got the results of my last blood workup yesterday and it showed that Anaplasma is very present and very active. We have chosen to try a pretty aggressive round of anitbiotics....400mg of Doxycycline a day for 90 days. We're hoping that I can handle the Doxy for that long and it doesn't make me sick to my stomach, which will mean I won't be able to keep down the meds. This is the only time since I first got sick that mom is really worried.
After a few weeks, if I'm handling the Doxycycline okay we'll add Denosyl or milk thistle to the mix which should aid my liver. Our hope is that this will kill of the infection once and for all and my liver levels will go back to normal. If not, then we'll deal with it then.
Thank you to my pals, I'm sure you're as sick of hearing about this as mom is but we really appreciate the support you've shown.
Shi and mom

We aren't sick of hearing about our sick buddy! But we sure do hope you get better soon!
Can you take any anti nausea medications? They make them, and though it makes you super sleepy, keeping down the meds is the most important!
