The incubation period could be any time between 0 days and 1 year. Our tests suck, and cannot be relied upon. And it's possible that it's not just the steroid injection.....could be any drug on the market....but we're not sure yet. [/quote] Let me interpret. After the spinal tap, the fluid goes to the lab. There, a cell count, glucose, protein, culture, and gram stain is done; plus, other weird tests that the doctor orders. The gram stain is not the stain of choice for fungus. Lactose phenyl cotton blue is. Most labs do not have this stain available. If the fungus is not present in large numbers it can easily be missed on the stain. Any bacteria will grow in 48 hours. If there is no growth after a 48 hour period, the plates are tossed. Must hospital labs do not do fungal cultures. Those are sent to a reference lab where they are held for 6 weeks. Before now the only fungus one would expect in a CSF is Crytoccocus which is usually in a yeast form. Again, these are not fungus that normally cause menningitis. If a aspergillus was seen on a plate, before this outbreak, it would have been thought to be a contaiminate. [/quote]
Let the reader understand: I will never go back to Blue BAYOU, there will be no place for the Children to play soon. May as well eat RICE dogs from RICE Dog 7.
I am DEPUTY Dawg. Boss says can't say much, BIG BOSSES won't tell anyone THE TRUTH. But good people always find a workaround. Avoid the censors, no need for a V-chip here.
Please think hard about this. Remember things MUST get worse before they get better. I'm always at HOME when I make ASSUMPTIONS, but sooner or later you can NEVER go home again.
Much love people. And pray always.
