I’ve been healed! After a week of worrying about the state of my olfactory nerves, I found myself out of doors in the late (late) evening having a birthday drink with my sig-O (thats short for significant other). I caught a whiff of the jasmine behind him and was reminded of a thousand splendid perfumes. Had I been able to smell all along? There’s no telling.
Funny that earlier that very day I happened to get an email from the tick testing lab! Apparently my tick was not lost in the mail and I was not exposed to any deadly diseases. That was one clean tick.
Here’s her full report:
Relapsing fever: negative
I was instructed not to use the information for clinical decisions, but I’ve decided it’s ok to decided to go ahead and live.
Lessons learned: CTFO and let the flowers be smelled.
