just to let everyone know.  I got bit by something around april 21st,  I went to the emergency room monday the 28th.  they kept me because I had the mersa(sp) virus.   after getting worse  and worse on friday I checked out and went to a better hospital.  they found the antibiotics the other hospital gave me I had an allergy to.  they switched to zyvox. and started getting better right away.  I got out today but am still in rough shape.  the 1st hospital about had me convinced to let them cut my leg off.   I`m glad I listened to friends and got the hell out of there.   I WILL make it to MAM come hell or high water but may be still limping.    just wanted to post to let everyone know I hadn`t just quit posting.   going back to bed now and will get online more as I get better.

Well damn, Rayth! I knew you had dropped off the radar for a while; I just thought you got busy on your projects. Do you know what bit you? And some hospital....lose your leg over a bite and infection on top of you being allergic to the antibiotics? Didn't they get a history on you? *sniff...sniff*...I smell lawsuit.

Glad you're ok!

Geepers... Like others, I noticed you away but never thought it might be something serious. Glad you'll be linping on your own leg as opposed to the alternative. That was a close call.

Rest up. We'll see you at the show.

I too thought you were working on your projects as the weather got better. But dam they wanted to cut your leg off. incompatance I would see a lawyer on this one they should of check and rechecked before thinking of that.
Glad you found doctors with a degree to pratice med. Get well soon

My back hurts. I am going back to work.

That was not a post highjacking. It was a feel better chuckle.

Man, I am gald to hear your doing better.

I got bit by by recluse spider about 8 years ago and it took months to heal.
I figured like Jay that with the better weather you were just busy.

Take care of yourself and see you at MAM.
