Communicable diseases are best when shared, right?!

As I predicted...we're infected.

And, as I predicted...Bonus DOES have MRSA.

Also as predicted...the rest of us have 'suspicious spots' that the doctor decided today were most likely MRSA as well. All of us, that is, except Deuce and the dog. If you ask me, one of them was the one who brought the plague upon this house. They are both now referred to as "Typhoid Tommy and Typhoid Molly". (Anybody ever see Twelve Monkeys?)

Next on the predictions...I'll inherit a million dollars from a long-lost aunt and be able to finally buy that much-coveted pink unicorn with a rainbow mane and jelly bean poop.

While I'm waiting, feel free to send money...or wine. I'm not picky.

But you might not want to come in. Just stand on the sidewalk and throw it in the general direction of the house.

You should be fine.

Oh dude, I'm so sorry.

Jellybean poop however would be ideal just in time for Easter.

I know! Wouldn't that be awesome?! "Awww...Deuce, did Bonus eat the ears off your Easter Bunny?! Well, you come have some of mommy's jelly beans!"

Wow. That is AWFUL. What do they do to treat that? Looks like I need to be about my usual "GoogleMomma" business and find OUT. Scary.

It's amazing how many "bugs" there are that most of us know very little about. Makes me very glad to stay home and peek outside ONLY when necessary. Lovely...I really need something to aggravate my agoraphobia more. *sigh*

Actually, they do an oral antibiotic 2x a day along with a topical one for the 'spot', inside your nose and under your nails. GOOD TIMES...

Fortunately, the strand Bonus has (and I assume we do as well) was only resistant to 2 antibiotics.

To add to your fears, cause I'm fun like that, the infection can be anywhere...play lands, parks, grocery carts, etc. It lives in your nostrils and anytime an infected kid puts his finger in his nose and touches something, the bacteria spreads.

As if you didn't already have reason to freak...

Awww.... good luck.

Sounds like you're having the opposite of fun these days. Hang in there.

Does this mean I am infected? Am I going to have to get a shot? I thought is was bad enough to eat in the world's dirtiest McDonalds, and now I learn this? There is going to be some retribution in your future.

Amo said...

Alright there, "jwbikes"...if I remember correctly you VOLUNTEERED to hang with us. Any future 'ailments' are totally not my responsibility.

You should really pick your friends a little better. Those Harris Teeter safety guys are not always the best choices. ;)
