The line was inserted on Nov. 30, 2010 to deliver 2000 mg of antibiotics (per day) directly to the bloodstream in the fight against Lyme Disease. After some weeks, my body rejected the meds, and the line was pulled on Feb. 2nd, 2011. Then I was off the antibiotics, the infections crept back, my body took a major whack and on March 17, I was officially abandoned, like thousands of other Lyme patients in Canada. We have to go to the States for treatment. If we're lucky.
