Hi Mom, And now for something in which you would be interested if you were still alive since you dealt with vanco-resistance strains of bacteria during your six-month hospital and rehab stay post-bacterial meningitis.
Things are still crazy here, so the original content I had planned must wait. By the time, I actually finish my Motor City Comic Con and Penguicon reports it will be time for next year's! Not really, but the delays in finishing those works are the story of my life and my priorities. By not posting long and thoughtful posts every day, I am demonstrating that I am working on other things.
I am not even waiting until the usual 10:10 pacific, so it looks like 10:10 EDT. I am posting now. I have other stuff to do.
So here's an article that caught my eye, and is only two days old, and is very timely and relevant.
Vanco-resistant bacteria did not ultimately take your life, at least not directly, Mom, but it was part of the multiple health issues that you faced in the 15 years after the meningitis. Entercocci specifically caused your bacterial meningitis, so in a way, it did lead to what killed you in the end.
This one's for you, Mom.
I hope science wins this fight.

New antibiotic could eliminate the global threat of antibiotic-resistant infections
May 31, 2017
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered a way to structurally modify the antibiotic called vancomycin to make an already-powerful version of the antibiotic even more potent — an advance that could eliminate the threat of antibiotic-resistant infections for years to come.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
