The short version is that yes Lyme is a concerning illness and that you shouldn't be scared to death, but should take immediate action to protect your child. The good news is that it appears that you cought it early where you can stamp it out with the right treatment. Good thing is (in a way) it's a child who tend to bounce back pretty quickly. Most "problem children" with Lyme tend to be us adults. I would get you child's bacterial load levels checked after the antibotics in terms of ELISA/ reaction level tests.
