C.Jejuni.. or how May slipped away







Silly bugs.. one of those things. Thank goodness for my sweet Fidel & C's support, what with almost almost 3 weeks of suffering, I managed to to stay hydrated & electrolyte savvy. At one point, for 3 days, my face looked like a junior version of Commander Pyke (Star Treck). I really didn't realize how sick I was until it was all over. I got the results and doing the reading on it... I was lucky !!!

Did the the antibiotics , so I am now hoping I'm "clean" of C.Jejuni & maybe any other nasties lurking in the various hidy places of the body.

Wonder where I got this.. nothing is hitting me as an "haha" moment. Oh well.

All to say.. what a way to waste a month. Next time its somewhere warm.

You are right. There are much better ways to spend your time.

BTW, you never put a link on your comments on my blog in the past, so let me say - thanks for your comments.

Txs Rob -

I really like your blog as it tickles my brain in so may ways.

I put in the suggestion to our safety mag .. to publish your "Dear Pauline... evils of smoking" but the fuddies that be didnt bite :(

obtw.. contrary to the Laundress' comments to my squirrel comment way back when... it is honestly a true story. As a H&S practitioner, Ive seen wierd things

Good thing about it all, the "Lost May" (hmm.. movie stuff idea here..) - I re- thought concepts of eating & drinking of water ...

Im doing some temporary life style changes from a nutritive point of view after all this.. nothing that will stick, but for the time is good.. all 'round
