Thanks. I've ordered as well, (already)

I think clarification of a change in web address to:

www.doublehelixfarms.com might be helpful, as a search turned up .net for me- and bluehost is of no use, if you know what i mean, Randy

I knew Steve was having surgery for his knees,along with his other medicalissues and he called me tonight and asked me to do an updat here.

Both knees had surgery on June 18th and there were complications, the major one being a confirmed blood clot in the calf, and that meant ER and a hospital stay of a week and additional meds.

He's back home and has to use a walker,has a Home Health Aide that comes in but no PT yet.

He's been in a lot of pain and has spent most of his time in bed

If his condition continues to improve he hopes to be able to drive in a few weeks.

Most important is that he said he still has some orders to send out and hopes to do so by the end of this week,and hopes that folks understand the reason for the delay

He makes lots of crosses so I had to ask him about that.He said he taught a local lady how to do BRIXlevels and she and another lady bring the fruits to him inside. He also had two friends visit,from out of town,and they helped for a short time as well,

Me being who I am,I had to ask him what he was doing for meals,he said his one son works in a restaurant,so that looks good.

it's been several years now that he's been dealing with two tick acquired diseases and a while with knee problems aswell,so I hope all will be on the mend and better soon.

Carolyn

oh wow, I hope Steve is doing better now. Knee surgeries are a p.i.t.a. I was going to ask a few questions about the some stuff and drop cultural notes on others. But that can be done later, for now I hope Steve has a swift recovery.

Here in tick-infested New Hampshire (so many it has many thinking 'Biblcial plague"), there are doctors who believe lyme disease to be a 'myth'. Several folks I know are dealing with this 'myth', and it isn't pleasant.

I don't know of any MD's, or PA's or NP's who think that Lyme disease is a myth, at least in my area which is also tick infested, but I do know of some who don't believe there's a condition called Chronic Lyme Disease.

Just this Spring Freda who does my gardening and cleaning for me has been bitten twice and Angie, who gets my groceries for me has been bitten twice. What you do is to take the tick with you to the MD or whatever ASAP and standard protocol is two Doxycycline tabs and then watch for any other symptoms. Some have the standard bullseye rash, as Freda did a couple of years ago, some don't.If you don't know how to remove the tick let the MD or whomever do it for you.

A single tick can be harboring more than one infectious agent at the same time, such as Erlichiosis, Bartonella, Babesia, as well as the Lyme disease pathogen.

Yes, I used to teach infectious disease and the immune response to med students . Lyme disease is not new, but has spread I think, quicker than expected b'c of the life cycle involving mice and deer.

OK, I'm done now, and stepping down from the lecture podium to go get breakfast.

Carolyn, who thinks we ought to keep comments here about Steve and no more blatherings from Carolyn about diseases.

We all wish him a quick recovery! I have also heard of some terrible outcomes from undiagnosed Lyme disease incidents. Not sure if the tick population has moved north to Canada yet, but it always worries me. Good luck to Steve on all fronts!

My wife 's PCP believes that lyme disease is a fabrication of homeopaths and other practitioners of 'alternative medicine'. She has a different PCP now.

On the other hand; when I was bit by a tick a few years back; they did run the protocol Carolyn discussed...brought the tick in, and ran some antibiotics thru me. Same doctor's office, mind you...different PCP.
