i’ve had my brush with golden staph … not MRSA, thankfully, but hard enough to get rid of. took me six months all up and sometimes i still wonder.
but MRSA is a whole ‘nother ball of wax. ms mckenna does a terrific job of explaining the intricacies of biochemistry, microbiology and a whole bunch of other ologies without being tedious. in fact, it was gripping and i read it pretty much straight through.
makes you never want to take antibiotics again. at the very least it makes you want to ask your GP why he’s prescribing you antibiotics for a viral infection like bronchitis (did you know only 10% of bronchitis cases are caused by bacterial infection?). happened to me so many times i can’t even begin to tell you.
i tell ya, scary stuff, and well told.
because (a) perfect natural buoyancy … a rare thing … and (b) it takes place in northern wisconsin in summer. can’t ask for more than that.
