Hi guys

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes. Went to Logan's tonight. It was pretty good.

Norm, I hope your DD gets better. My girls were very concerned when they heard she was not feeling well.

I guarantee that whatever the blood test results, this guy will interpret them to fit his (almost certainly incorrect) belief that viruses cause most sinus-type infections. I understand that you want to limit antibiotic use, but it certainly sounds like your daughter has crossed that threshold! Good luck and hang in there. You have my sympathies.

The good news is that within the next 5-10 years, there will be incredible changes to how we diagnose infections. The idea that we are still using the same culture strategies for the last 50+ years is insane. Who's to say that the organism that grows in a culture is the actual infection? Nothing is sterile in the human body and there are little microorganisms growing everywhere. What's the odds that the organism that grew in the culture is the actual pathogen when there are literally dozens of organisms in the human sinus & respiratory tract? Fair at best and highly dependent on who takes and runs the culture. The research into genetic testing of the human "biome" is amazing. The results these guys are getting is unbelievable and I expect we'll all benefit very quickly given the rate of increase in the clinical uses. These guys can take a sample and give you the composition, amount, and percentage of each organism very exactly. Then, they can track when a new organism or one of the "old" colonized organisms, starts growing out of proportion to what it should. Amazing stuff. Hopefully will eliminate some of this BS that a lot of parents are going through.

Back at work () today after a few days in New England. Got to see the Baseball Hall of Fame and then hang out in Stowe, Vermont for a few days. Beautiful area, great time relaxing with family. Didn't want to come back.

We stopped in CT for lunch with Chris (DisDadDoc) and family on the way back, and had a great time.

Now back to work...Bleh.

Oh, and Happy Birthday David!
Great seeing you guys, too!

My surgery got pushed back to 1, so now its a light breakfast and very little coffee, not a good combination for anyone traveling with me.

Matt
Good luck today, Matt!

Carl....sorry to hear about your son. I too, have gone through that same scare. I woke up one morning with a droopy face...went to the ER to rule out stroke and also was diagnosed with bells palsy.

Thankfully, mine was mild and corrected itself in a few weeks.

Hope he gets better real soon!

Thanks Dave. Isn't it amazing how one meeting can stick with children.

Sorry about the morale. Hate workplaces like that. If this wasn;t the fault of co-worker, let's hope she bounces back quick.

No it isn't right. Sounds a little like our pediatrician, who don't geyt me wrong, is a great doctor, he was MY doctor when I was a kid But he is a "play it out" type. When Audrey starts fevers, we try to treat it ourselves, and if this fails, off to the "Kidzclinic" at the hospital who run the tests and findout if antibiotics are needed. After a visit there, she gets better after a few days. This all sounded so much like Audrey in her 1st and second year.

Very glad she is getting the right treatment now...

Prayers to DS. I guess it could have been worse, but still hard to hear. Hope recovery is quick.

Man, vacation in 4 weeks cannot come soon enough, I have NO motivation at work anymore, just doing the minimal if that, going through the paces. Only one shift (Friday) left with my friend which scares me a bit, she keeps me grounded at the store, once she's gone I might snap. Hoping tomorrow might be a diversion, it's a Beer Workshop Can;t help think that there is something physically wrong here though, no energy whatsoever.

You posted in the right spot...

to the DISDad's.

Emma's Dad will be by eventually to give you your official number... please be patient, he's currently at the beach drinking Mai Tai's.

Looks like we'll be passing each other on the way in / out of WDW. I check out Aug 26. I originally scheduled my vacation the exact dates as you, but we moved it back a week. Where are you staying @ WDW?

A great win for the Heat last night and great showing for LeBron playing thru pain. No team has come back in NBA Finals down 3-1. I hope LeBron doesn't add that to his resume.

Maybe it's just the combination of both that made it that much worse. While work has some grat benefits, it can be terribly frustrating. It seems like all the money is put on management and everything is denied or removed for budget constraints.

Welcome. Dues are payable in dole whips, bacon, beer, or cake. And, there over 700 now, but you really only need to ship to those posting on this thread, or better yet, just send them to me. We are planning DL in 2020.
