Beaver’s Disease–what the Alaskans call it (I learned something new this week.)

Giardia–what my microbiologist daughter calls it.

And in a moment of supreme irony, since none of us saw this coming when we were talking about it…

A possibility–what the doctor called it today (“Have you been up in the mountains?” Yes) as she wrote out the lab order.

My sons had this parasitewhen quite small. MILgave them overripe, unwashed fruit. A friend who has tummy problems without this caught it in Vanuatu from water from crystal clear mountain streams. It can hang around, make sure it goes or it surfaces again.

Oh, no! I do hope you are not too sick, and the right meds do the trick, and fast. A friend picked up that nasty bug on a camping trip years ago. Dropped his can of beer in a swift moving creek, and laughed, “the alcohol will kill anything.” Not quite.
