08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

As those of you who follow MYPeanutGallery are already aware, I ended up becoming infested by an intestinal parasite in late August, and spent some time in the hospital.

I've been home for awhile now, and while the parasites have been eradicated, I'm still dealing with some of the aftermath from their invasion. The main problem now is a general lack of energy, which is part of the reason I haven't come on to post this update. I've been focusing what energy I have on my own projects (which are mostly outside of DA), as getting sick set some of them back by a few weeks.

Unfortunately, we still don't really know where I came into contact with the parasite. The best guess is that I ate some contaminated food, but the problem there is that I generally eat what the family eats -- thus if there was something wrong with the food, all three of us would be sick. There aren't many exceptions to this, which initially led us to think that the my last order from Chipotle was contaminated. My parents weren't along with me on that trip, so I'm the only one of us that ate there. However, when we looked things up, the dates don't quite work out. Two other possibilities are some potato salad and a prepared salad I bought at the grocery store the same week I got sick, but we can't know for sure if they were contaminated at this point.

I'm slowly getting stronger day by day, and hopefully will be back up to par by this time next month.

In the meantime, thank you all for your support and prayers, they do mean a lot.

PLrayers going out to you! Wow, I'm starting to wonder if I'm experiencing sugar parasites. My energy level takes a nosedive sometimes at random.

One day at a time right now, right? So far, so good. I can see you are recovering more and more each day. Hopefully, we can get out to photograph some fall color soon. A short trip in the cool morning maybe. :heart:

I am so sorry you have been sick Mike. I am glad to know that you are getting better each day. It is scary to think that all this happened as a result of eating food from outside of the home. My prayers are with you and I hope that you will recover fully and be yourself again :huggle:
