Sorry I've been gone

#1 Post by Dave Morgan » Thu Nov 24, 2011 12:45 pm

Howdy guys,
Sorry for my absence, I’ve been very sick… anemic dysentery. You may have heard that Minot, North Dakota (where I manage the dragstrip) was flooded this past summer. Stupid me, I went into the water to try to get to the track and see how badly it was covered in water (the Army Corp of Engineers predicted the area would be under 10 feet of water… turned out to be four feet.)
Anyway, there were three stock yards upstream of where I got in and those nasty microbes got into my intestines and bone marrow. I lost 18 pounds (I weighed 155 pounds before this happened ), electrolytes and red blood cell counts were in the basement. I had 15 days of diarrhea and cramps. I can’t remember clearly because of the fever, but I either wanted to die or I expected to.
My recovery is pretty holistic at this point, I take baby formula for the electrolytes and iron pills for the anemia. Anyway, I’m back and look forward to helping you guys again.
Stay Tuned.
