E.Coli Part 2

thank you everyone for your wonderful emails and support! the little man is doing a lot better, no symptoms anymore, though he still tests positive. it seems it can stay in your system for 12 weeks or so. and my daughter tested positive too even though she is asymptomatic also. she probably had it first and gave it to him. it was interesting talking to the calgary health authority about how they identify the source of the e.coli. it seems they create a genetic profile, match that to other people and then look for a commonality in what or where they ate, where they've been etc. quite the mystery! oh well, we are in germ lock-down here, but other than that fairing well. thank you again, more art posts to come soon!

well i've had a sick little munchkin on my hands the last week. complete with a couple of visits to the emergency room. never realized e.coli was so contagious and that you don't have to have eaten meat to get it. live and learn. he's doing a lot better, though it was a bit of a scare. anyway, that's why i haven't posted in a while. hope to have some new stuff up soon. cheers everyone!
