Salmonella

Thu Feb 15, 2007, 8:19 AM
So I'm sure most of you know that my Dad has severe emphysema, and other health problems. Well for the past week or so he's been really really bad off, but with things that don't have anything to do with emphysema; he's had diahrea and stomach cramps, fever, chills, and it's really bad since he's sick to begin with.

Well, yesterday on the news we watched about a new salmonella outbreak in peanut butter, especially in VA in all cans begining with '2111'. Well since my Dad can't eat a lot because of his lung capacity, he eats high protein food (sometimes I sneak health food into his food lol, becuase he's stubborn) like peanut butter sandwiches. So he had eaten a half of this can of Peter Pan peanut butter, which was the brand with the most problems with this salmonella, and did start with '2111'. GREAT.

So, now he keeps getting worse and doesn't have any anti-biotics. And being stubborn and stupid, refuses to go to the doctor. GAH! He really should have gone to the ER last night, as soon as we found out that that was what was making him sick. But now he's just laying in bed, moaning and groaning and I CAN'T TAKE IT!!!! I've turned up everything in the house to block him out, but it doesn't work (our house is very small.) He needs medical attention, at least to go somewhere like Urgent Care, but all he did was call his doctor and tell him over the phone - like that does any good!

Hmm.. I am not having a good day :cries:

By the way, not trying to get pity comments, but I really could use some ideas for the foreground of this painting:

That stinks. :( I think now that they found salmonella in peanut butter, a bunch of people are worried. My little brother got a little freaked out when he heard about it (he likes to eat peanutbutter with a spoon ;P)

Yeah. It's mostly in Peter Pan and a few other brands, but only if the bottle number starts with '2111'. They're starting to find it in some fruits too, like cantelope :O_o:

I was actually thinking maybe a deep maroonish purple. My only problem is the subject lol

Well, you're an amazing artist (You can take pictures AND draw, which I don't notice in most people)

So I'm sure you'll think of something. If not, leave it as is and call it abstract :p

Oh gosh :( I really hope he's okay.
Men are just very stubborn about going to doctors, I've found. Don't worry about it, Jessie :aww: he will be better soon. :glomp:
