Over on BoingBoing this morning is a story about a science fiction write that made the news a while ago for being inexplicably detained at the US border, being beaten, and being charged with a felony. All for no real reason, other than border guards being mental. Kind of a fucked up story, to say the least, and makes you feel for the guy. And life has shit on him even more lately, as he's recently contracted the flesh eating bacteria (necrotising fasciitis) from a simple, routine flesh biopsy in a Toronto hospital. Well, the guy's not only a writer/novelist, he's also got a PhD in biology, and he's got a blog that he's using to share the experience with everyone. With REALLY FUCKING GROSS (but interesting) pics of what he's going through. Did i mention the pics were REALLY FUCKING GROSS? Spoiler Seriously. REALLY FUCKING NASTY. You've been warned. NSFW At least he's got a sense of humour, as you can see from the occasional pic of "get well" balloons tied to his annoyed cats. HIS BLOG IS HERE FOCUS: What medical stories do you have to share? What's the worst thing you or someone you know has gone through? ALT-FOCUS: Discuss his blog.
