Tanner's Rash

Tanner had gotten bit by a teeny tiny tick the Thursday before we left for the beach.  The Saturday we came home Dave noticed a rash around the spot where he had gotten bit.  It also really itched Tanner.  Each day the rash got bigger.  So knowing he had gotten bit there we took him to the doctor on Monday night and he said it was most likely Lymes Disease, based on the rash and knowing he was bit there.  
It doesn't look like the bulls eye rash that I've seen pictures of, but I guess the little bit of white in the middle qualifies it to be a bulls eye rash.  So Tanner had to take antibiotics for 3 weeks.  And we had to watch for him to act funny, not want to do anything and just lay around, and complain of his joints hurting.  Luckily none of that happened, he just had an itchy rash for a few days.
