    This is what will do us in

    If/when we have a human ending event I think itll be this that does it. Antibiotic resistant bacteria. We'll have no way to fight against it and it doesn't discriminate.

    Thoughts?

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Well, I do know from my doctors that the "ultimate antibiotic" has been tinkered with in the labs for several years. If nothing else, such research refined what we already had.

    There's also bad news. The company that creates this magic pill will want to be rewarded. Such a breakthrough will fetch the sellers several hundred dollars (at least) for a singular capsule.

    It also means that your average Joe might not make the cut...

    I'd be more worried about China controlling our drug production. But along the same track.

    Several months ago my wife lost a nephew to an OD (or a 'hot load). He died from fentanyl.

    My wife believes that the Milwaukee police know who the dealer is. It is also her belief that this was done so her family wouldn't hunt him down.

    Twice in our Son's fight with cancer, he was given "Last Line Antibiotics". Both times, obviously, they worked because I saw him for our regular Sunday Dinner and he looked OK! (Just a little humor, his cancer was cured back in 2000. )

    But seriously, we've wondered if he were to have an unrelated infection or something, will his immune system respond to antibiotics like it should?

    I think it would all depend on the infection. There are different antibiotics that cover a group of things. If your son were to get something in the group that Last Line covers it may not work.

    I have been a nurse for about 30 years now. We see more and more patients with methicillin resistant and vancomycin resistant infections all the time. A microscopic pathogen reproduces itself every 20 minutes 2-4-16-256-65,536- etc. Plenty of opportunity to mutate to develop a resistance and thrive in a new environment. Good point Squatch. Keep washing those hairy paws of yours. Handwashing is our best defense.

    They say the gut is very important to the immune system. High-quality probiotics are suggested for the building of the immune system. Not the crap on the shelves but the ones that are refrigerated.

    They say it's a matter of when, not if, a super bug gets loose. It's high on my list of probables but hard to defend against.

    But you know my hairy friend, . . . the preacher in me has to get involved, . . .

    Ain't none of us getting out of here alive anyway, . . .

    Might as well make sure where we are going when the "bug" takes us out, . . . regardless of the "bug" type, . . .

    It's a single floor elevator, . . . one floor "going up", . . . and one floor "going down".

    Be ready for it.

    May God bless,
