Tick season brings vigilance against Lyme

Tick season brings vigilance against Lyme

By PATRICK DEWEY • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

What is most astounding about Lyme Disease is that one tick the size of a sesame seed or smaller, according to the CDC, can change someone’s life course.

Cherry Valley resident Tina Leentjes, diagnosed with Lyme Disease in May 2017, went from working five days a week and attending events almost every evening to working part-time and falling asleep
before dinner is finished.

For Brenda Michaels of Cooperstown, symptoms began with knee pain and started a four-year battle that included headaches, fast heartbeat and facial weakness.

The life-changing effects show why awareness of Lyme Disease is critical.

Moms Who Show Up For ‘Nurse-In’

Welcomed At Fly Creek Cider Mill

Brenda Michaels, owner of the Fly Creek Cider Mill, talks with Emily Ryan, who came from Erieville to rally moms at a "Nurse-In" at the Fly Creek Cider Mill.  "I nursed my daughter here," said Michaels.  "We are a family-friendly store."  The nurse-in, which was attended by a half-dozen moms, had been prompted by a Facebook post in which a nursing mother was asked to cover up at the store.  An apology was issued by Michaels  on Facebook shortly after the incident.
