Thanks for sharing and I hope he continues to get better.Hey gang
I am just sharing something my family has been going through.
My oldest brother (lives in Burlington)..... became very ill about a week and a half ago. He was bleeding internally from the stomach and had a great deal of stomach pain and diarrhea. He was hospitalized at Oakville Hospital and (no covid 19) and they ran some tests and started to treat him. He takes BP pills and his BP was extremely low.
He got the blood work results today,,,,and a call from the Public health dept.
He has a parasitic infection from eating blueberries (location imported from Peru).
Even though he washes all his fruits and vegetables they said that this wouldn't kill this parasite and the only way to do that is freeze the fruit.
He is now at home resting and getting better but he has lost a lot of weight and is still very weak.
It was a very frightening time for us to say the least and I am so happy he is going to be ok.
I know I should not give health /food advise but maybe forgoing those blueberries from Peru that are on sale at Sobeys right now would be a good idea.
Thanks for listening.
I'm glad we have this group where we can share this sort of stuff. I could help someone and that is never a bad thing.
