Chris Valerio's battle with Lyme Disease, as with most Chronic Disease Patients, has its share of ups and downs and the road back to health truly is a marathon not a sprint. Recently Chris tried a new medicine that is used for one of his Lyme Disease Co-infections, Babesia with dramatic results. For the first time in 3 years, Chris was once again walking as this YouTube Video will show! Just 3 days into this medicine we started to see these amazing positives. Chris and all of us were incredibly happy. Chris had a grin from ear to ear! The ability to walk again lasted for almost 8 weeks and Chris then began to see some side effects to the medicine and its dramatic effect started to fade with Chris losing most of his walking. We had to stop this medicine, hopefully temporarily as Chris' doctors try to determine why he is having this setback. We hope that this is once again a small bump in the road to Chris' return to health and again very soon, Chris will start to walk again and see additional improvements and we, his family will again see his grin, from ear to ear!
