Musings of a Dinosaur

A Family Doctor in solo private practice; I may be going the way of the dinosaur, but I'm not dead yet.

Dinosaur with the Red Face

I swear I came up with Salmonella as a random example of a readily treatable, generally non-fatal disease to use as an analogy for my feelings about the HPV vaccine. Then yesterday I hear about the multi-state Salmonella outbreak attributed to peanut butter! And today I see a family with diarrhea and vomiting who've all eaten peanut butter from the affected lot.

I'd better not ever mention Bubonic plague.

We have all eaten the salmonella peanut butter too. Since the kids were all sick weeks ago (and apparently I am a slacker mom because I never thought they were sick enough to go to the doctor), and are all healthy now, I guess we don't need to bother seeing a doctor now. Next time you mention a disease, could you give me some advance warning about what food we will be getting it from so I know to avoid it?
