If I’ve communicated with you personally consider it the tiniest of miracles. I’m quite sure I’ve sent emails only in my head and really sent others that I can’t remember. Such is life in the whirlwind of medications and testing.
This hospital apparently sees cases similar to mine about twice a week but they’re usually easily explained. Someone’s a long term IV drug user or they’ve just been somewhere exotic and had bad water. Cases like mine bug them because without a source there’s a potential for a recurrence.
Interesting side note about hospital food – this hospital’s food anyway. I have hardly eaten any of it. it’s totally disgusting and luckily Derek has been coming up bearing the dinners of my choice. But I was puzzled last night when I found my favourite pizza unpalatable. Finally a nurse, noticing my nearly bare lunch tray, asked if I was on a certain drug. Turns out I am. turns out it makes your taste buds turn on their heads and everything taste like crap!! Nobody’s perfect but a heads up would have been nice!
