 Obituaries: Lyme disease patients mourn passing of well known doctor

ObituariesSikeston mourns passing of well known doctor
Southeast Missourian, Sikeston, MO
Tuesday, June 23, 2009
By Scott Welton ~ Standard Democrat


SIKESTON, Mo. -- Family, friends, former patients -- an entire community -- are mourning the loss while celebrating the life of Dr. Ed Masters today.

Masters, 63, died Sunday at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau.

"It's a loss to the world," said Paul Walters of Alton, Ill., a former patient of Masters making the three-hour drive for today's visitation. "He was an amazing person."

Rusty Newton of Advance, Masters' sister, described Masters as "a renowned and beloved family physician."

Dr. Edwin Masters

"He loved being a doctor," she said. "Solving complicated medical cases was the challenge he relished most."

One of the biggest challenges Masters faced was the one he is best remembered for.

"He spent the better part of his medical career researching, documenting and treating tick-borne diseases and was internationally known for his work with Lyme disease," Newton said.

Due to his extensive research on Lyme-like diseases and a critical discovery, STARI (Southern tick-associated rash illness) is also known today as Masters disease.

"It should be called Masters disease," said Walters, who is among the many treated by Masters for Lyme-like diseases. "Ed Masters is the one who isolated it."

Doctors from all over the country would refer their patients to Masters advising he was "the one man who could help them," Newton said. "People would call to try to get an appointment to see him and couldn't get in."

Some managed to track Newton down at her former home in Kansas City and plead with her to ask her brother to schedule an appointment for them. "And he did on many, many occasions," she said.

Newton recalled how when some patients were too weak to make the drive down here, Masters would drive to ...

 Obituaries: All she lost: My sister's battle with Lyme disease

ObituariesAll she lost: My sister's battle with Lyme disease
MSNBBC
By John Baiata, NBC News producer


After a decade of unbearable side effects, she decided to end her life


The phone had not even finished its first ring before my wife Anna snatched it from its cradle. Concern was etched in her face as she handed me the receiver: “It’s the police. It’s about Sue.”

My stomach dropped. My older sister had disappeared the day before and my family feared for her safety. “I’m sorry to have to tell you this,” the police lieutenant said in an even voice, “but we found your sister dead this afternoon. We have reason to believe it was a suicide. We’re here with your mother now.”


I fought the urge to scream as my mind went in a million directions. “Do not leave my mother by herself,” I urged the lieutenant over the phone. “I’ll be there in a little more than an hour.”

I lurched outside and clung tightly to the deck railing, while everything else seemed to spin violently around me. Anna grabbed me with both hands. “What happened?!”

“She really did it this time,“ I said. “She killed herself.”

Sue Baiata, shown dancing with her brother, John, at his 2001 wedding, developed advanced Lyme disease in the years after being bitten by a tick. One of the side effects she experienced was hyperacusis, a sensitivity to sound so severe that she tried to find a doctor willing to surgically deafen her.

Sue Baiata, shown dancing with her brother, John, at his 2001 wedding, developed advanced Lyme disease in the years after being bitten by a tick. One of the side effects she experienced was hyperacusis, a sensitivity to sound so severe that she tried to find a doctor willing to surgically deafen her.

John Baiata could always count on his sister Sue to offer a listening ear when he needed to talk  and to introduce him to the latest music. Pictured in this family photo from the 1970s is Sue, far right, John, next to her, their sister Dawn, far left, and mother, Patricia.

Sue Baiata in the late 1990s at a beach on Long Island, one of her favorite places.

In the decade or so before Sue took her own life at age 46 on August 21, 2005, my sister Dawn, my mother and I had become all too familiar with advanced Lyme disease, which had slowly, inexorably diminished Sue’s life.

Sometime in the mid 1990s, my sister contracted Lyme disease, likely through being bitten by a deer tick or black-legged tick. The bacterium that had introduced itself to Sue’s bloodstream went undetected, and then was misdiagnosed for the better part of two years.

Identified early, a short course of oral antibiotics will cure the majority of cases of Lyme disease — more than 27,000 cases were reported in the U.S. in 2007 — and wipe out the typical symptoms of headaches, fatigue and a circular rash near the area of the bite. But left untreated, the disease can affect the heart and nervous system, causing joint pain. Sue faced a parade of symptoms including migraines, severe pain her neck and major joints and staggering exhaustion.

Each one narrowed the prism through which she lived her life. Sue had to leave her job as a facilities manager to go on disability, and lived with my mother in the Long Island home where we were raised. On her good days, she would spend hours in the gardens she had lovingly cultivated in the expanse of the backyard. More than likely it was there too where the tick which bore the disease that would seal her fate attached itself to her.

On her bad days, she would stay in bed with the shades drawn, cuddled with the dog she loved unconditionally, her beloved Chihuahua, Katie. She would emerge only briefly to have some tea and a bite to eat, and a few words with our mom. Still, she had accepted what her life had become. On those good days she could still fill the room with laughter. She would mine the late-night comedians for material but ...

 Obituaries: Laura Treanor, 19, Lyme disease not ruled as cause of death

ObituariesLymeBlog News
Lexington, KY USA
Source: lohud.com, New York, USA
By Brian J. Howard • bjhoward@lohud.com



YORKTOWN - Three months after police said Laura Treanor died of natural causes, officials now say the college sophomore died of acute alcohol intoxication.

The 2007 Yorktown High School graduate was found dead in her bed at George Washington University on Jan. 23 after a night out with friends. She was 19.

Her father, Patrick Treanor, declined to comment on the finding, saying the news was "like her dying all over again."

At the time, Treanor's family speculated that she may have been ill for some time. She had complained of headaches and chronic bruising and had been treated for Lyme disease in the fall. Blood work had ruled out leukemia, her father had said, and she was planning to return home for a checkup.

Treanor's family speculated that she may have been ill for some time. She had complained of headaches and chronic bruising and had been treated for Lyme disease in the fall.

A roommate called 911 after being unable to wake Treanor and finding blood on her nose and pillowcase.

The cause of death was confirmed yesterday by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Washington, D.C.

Treanor, who was studying journalism and political science, was a member of the Phi Sigma Sigma sorority and an editor at the Hatchet, a student newspaper, which first reported the ...
