Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
Now that was a bath...
Amelie (16 months) has rung the poilce twice already this month (the number is 111 here which is too easy) and despite interrogation she can give us no apparent reason . They billed us for the calls and once rang me back to tell me off.
On a not funny note, that poor poor girl. Isn't bacterial menengitis contageous?
I think viral is the contagious one. A friend of mine's little girl contracted bacterial meningitis as a newborn from powdered formula (interesting that food for an infant can be toxic--the liquid formulas are sterile, but the powdered ones are not--one more reason breastmilk is best). She nearly died and now has serious brain damage and is disabled, has issues with hydrocephaly, and has shunts in her head.
from powdered formula
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Does this mean that someone who is prone to sinus infections is more likely to be at risk for meningitis.
Anyhow, Google brings up quite a few results re: the risks of meningitis and powdered formula
Ahhh. Yes. Enterobacter sakazakii. Pardon me. That is a fairly rare one indeed. Is that what your friend's daughter had? That is about like getting struck by lightning I believe. Bad stuff, but quite uncommon. Breastfeeding...
