Jul - We posted at the same time
The tick was all ready swollen up, so I have no clue what size it was before biting, kwim? I don't think there's a big size difference between deer and wood ticks here (deer are the lyme carriers), but I do know they look different (lines on their shells). But, again, this one was swollen and all ready turning white (gag me) so we couldn't check markings either. But it sounds like he'll be fine either way, since we've definitely started antibiotics early on.
I wonder if that rash was part due to teething too? I hope he's feeling better and rash-free tomorrow - rashes are so itchy and sweating just makes it worse.
Not that your heat is funny, but I'd do just about anything to trade you for this cold, rainy, windy crap we've got!
