It's Negative!

Ryan's Lyme's test came back negative! Praise the Lord! I hate these little bugs. Just a day after hearing good news from the Dr about Ryan, we found a tick on Sean that was so embedded, we could not remove it. We had to take him to the Dr the next morning. Thankfully she was able to remove it(although it was not easy. It took both of us to hold him down. He fought us so hard that when we were done, there were fingernail marks in his legs from my grip. I felt so bad.)

We check the kids every night when they get dressed for bed(or after their bath). When we find one, we kill it the proper way:

First, after plucking the evil bug from the child's skin, squeeze the tweezers as hard as you can. This will begin the suffering. Then place it on a tissue, as to have a clean view of the bug. Then, using the largest and sharpest knife in the house, chop said bug into many teenie tiny pieces. Next, light bug on fire. After the bug has been reduced to ash, take it to the bathroom and flush it down the toilet. (Better flush twice so you know it's gone).

Here's something for you to enjoy. And I know I don't have to tell you this, but... do a tick check ever day!
