I recently contracted this flesh-eating bacteria and spent the holidays in the hospital. Apparently I was extremely lucky and caught in time, as I still have all my body parts (my right thumb was where it originated - just a tiny, little scrape -- who woulda thought).
I understand that this is a fairly rare disease and that the mortality rate is close to 30%. Whoa! God saved me for some reason.
I was just wondering if anyone else has either had it themselves or know of someone who has?
