    My 14 yr old brother had a fever a few days ago, and no one knew what was wrong with him. Today my mom took him to the ER, and he may have Lyme's Disease from all the ticks out where they live. I don't know if Lyme's is fatal if it gets too far advanced, but PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM!!! He's my baby brother and I love him dearly and I'm so worried about him!!! Please pray, I couldn't stand it if something horrible happened to him!!!

    My prayers are with you. My niece had very advanced Lymes and she is just fine today [​IMG] There are several things they can do for him. I'm sure he will be fine. [​IMG]

    Very few cases are Lyme disease fatal. It just makes you not able to do things you once could. I have had a lot of ticks on me and have not gotten lyme disease. They will put him on antibiotics for X amount of days and it will get better.
