but wait... we know you want more...

If my last post made you cringe a bit be warned that the following may have some sting in it too... We were happily holidaying in the lushness of the beach house when... I started feeling sick, dizzy and feverish... I slept for 3 hours and sweated like a freak. Woke up to see my (sting) scrotum swollen to an unspeakable size...... Off to the local little hospital where they didn't even wanna touch me... Was delirious with fever by then, they filled my veins with some hardcore antibiotics and morphine and shot straight back to the big smoke where I was reopened the next morning, reclosed and then shipped to a special bed. There I spent 10 days hooked up to various machines pumping me full of some of the most evil juices my body has ever experienced. I lost 8 kilos in 10 days while eating 3 meals and doing nothing but laying on my back... The aggressive antibiotics ate muscle, fat and at the time, much of my brain function... I barely knew what day it was most of the time...

I had picked up the second worst possible type of staf infection possible from my original visit to theatre and it took 3 weeks to incubate before it initiated its domination bid over my bod... I'm back home now but still not allowed to be vertical and my bod and brain are slowly recovering now... I have waay too much catching up to do now with family, work, school, the negligence suit I'm filing etc to even consider tackling this challenge with you dangerous folk... Sadly... this time, I'm one of those people... who just aint got the (poor pun) balls for it

For those of you with a morbid bent I took some snaps... pm me if you want to really cringe...

Thanks for all the kind words and support guys, I'll pay you all a visit in the coming weeks while I'm recovering from my recovery

Arrrgh! Can't begin to understand how painful this must have been ... poor Rob!
That kind of infections can be real dangerous, I'm glad to hear you're past the worse of it now. Hang in there, take it cool and recover well.

There is a saying in Dutch that loosly translated says :'Weeds never die'.
We are weeds daddy

The force be with you and yours.
