Re: Fusarium/panama disease
I just had a root canal and get my cap tomorrow, actually. I have heard of unstopped infections causing all manner of trouble.
I kinda figured your illness reply would be in a PM, but it's all good... Doctors can mess you up if you're not a diligent patient, asking questions and doing your own research and all, and still can even if you are all that. Sometimes they get lucky and find something they know a little about and fix it, too. Usually not cure because there's no money in cures. If they find a cure, the govt. makes them give it away at cost and then there's no more need, but treatments make drug companies and doctors rich with never ending appointments and prescriptions.
They sure are good at fixing people up after an accident, war has given them plenty of practice, unfortunately.
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.
