Watch what you eat! (although they have yet to identify what to watch out for yet)
A month long stomach bug. Ugh!

Bactrim is supposed to clear this up. Which brings up a a question, will those who are using Bactrim as a prophylaxis not get this bug?

People have been complaining about stomach problems lately.  Hasn't hit me but I eat out alot and when you look at restaurant businesses being forced to cut back for the bottom line and food handlers making low wages, etc. it's no surprise.  Are they all washing their hands with soap and water for fifteen seconds?  I doubt it.  What about the overall quality control in the food service industries?

Feel better Mitch.

There's a news anchor here, who is in the hospital, and they think this is the culprit.

Jody,
You are so sweet to wish me well. :) My stomach is fine however my brain is another story. ::) ;D When I said "a month long stomach bug. Ugh!", I was referring to the article, not me. I guess it could have been read both ways. I guess I need to pay more attention. (but don't count on it) Correcting a faulty brain with a faulty brain doesn't always work out so good. :P
