User :   my 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with first stage lime 2 months ago. The doctor said her blood work cbc did not match that of a person with lime but the the first test was positive and the western block panel was positive. She was not convinced but said we need to treat her for lime and see how she doe on the 4 week follow up. she was on antibiotics for 3 weeks. she has be sick looking again with swollen like lemon glands tired very pale and lose of appetite. She is small and thin but not anemic right now and the doctor was surprised. The doctor is concerned about how she looks tired redness under her eyes and has done a biochemistry work up mono again and some other test. is it possible she has something else instead of lime? maybe misdiagnosed? could it be a type of children's lukemia? concerned mom!
