You definitely have much more important things to deal with right now. I'm really sorry to hear all this.

Good thing for you guys is i doubt were going on out cruise now. The funeral and stuff is set up for sunday and monday. If there is any way we can hold off on the pickups, i'd really appreciate it. Sorry about all this. My life sucks right now.

Tom,

How long have you had the symptoms for Lyme? About 10 years ago I had the worst headache, virus, flu, sinus infection X2 for a few days heading up to me going to FL. I felt very sick for a few days. The sickness went away after a few days and I developed a rash all over my body. They were dime sized spots that grew out like ringworm. By the time I got home and went to the Doctor (about 2 weeks0 they went away. The doctor put me on medication and sent me for tests. They came back that I had Lyme. I got retested after the meds and it was in remission. Good luck!

You and your family will be in my family’s thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if you need me for anything.

Take care.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers guys, means a lot. German- I've started fishing a lot this year now that my son is older. I found a small tick on my side about three weeks ago. I removed it and looked at it closely and it didn't seem to be a deer tick, but I figured I'd better watch the bite location to be sure. Everything was fine until the end of last week. The bite started to get a little red. By Sunday it was more red and by Tuesday, I had the bullseye. I'm on the meds for the disease now, so all should be good. However, they did a spinal tap on me in the hospital and about 20 minutes later is when we got the news of my father in law so we signed myself out and spent 45 minutes in the car going to his house. Well for anyone who knows anything about spinal taps, thats not a good thing! I have a killer headache now whenever I try to sit up. Yesterday trying to make the funeral arrangements was absolutley horrible. The hops should be in tomorrow and I'm not even sure I'll be at work to get them, so I may have to have my coworker drop them off here. Obviously my sickness is nothing compared to what my wife is going through right now. She lost her mom a couple years ago to MS, so she is suffering pretty good. I'll live, so send your thoughts and prayers her way. Her dad was an amazing man.
Tom

I am very sorry to hear about your father-in-law. Please, pass my condolences onto your wife. As far as I am concerned take as much time as you need. Get well.

Tom,

Likewise, I'm in no hurry for these hops. I got bit 15 years ago by a tick and got the ring. Doctor for whatever reason was a little hesitant to issue antibiotics, but it cleared it all up. I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your father in law.
Peace
Eric

Tom: My condolences to you and your family and hoping for the best with you health. I'm in on some hops with Brewsncrabs (Chis). The hops are the least important issue. Good luck! Thanks.
