Fritz has Lyme Disease

On Saturday I noticed Fritz had a bulls-eye rash on the back on his knee. This picture was taken Saturday evening. The flash washed the rash out a little and you can’t see the sides of it on the sides of his leg and the center spot has gotten more pronounced since then, but you get the idea.
Fritz has Lyme Disease

This morning he saw our doctor. He’s seriously one of the best doctors in the world. He is actually the one who diagnosed my mom and me with Lyme Disease 8 years ago next month. So now he’s diagnosed a third generation with Lyme Disease and put Fritz on a few weeks of antibiotics.

The crazy thing in all this is Fritz, like my mom and myself, does not like to go outside. And yet we are the three who got Lyme Disease while the others spend lots of time outside and have never gotten it.
