Re: (Unofficial) Drinks at the Viadukt Markthalle (Part Deux)

UTH - have they ruled out giardia (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001333/)? A friend of mine came back from Thailand with that and it took doctors in the UK weeks to diagnose it, despite all their fancy tests. Jokers. In the end, another friend (a vet so some medical knowledge!) suggested that giardia might be the cause and when the GP did a specific test for that, bingo.

Interesting symptom match... The practice seems quite concerned as they keep calling me back and checking me out, it's got CJ quite worried. I am off there now, I will ask for a Giardisis specific test...

My biggest concern is that I am yet to find out if I am notifiable, so I am avoiding contact etc , but the kids still have to go to school , it might all be a bit late if I have a highly contagious lurgy thingymabob...

I would say watch this space , but it isn't a pretty sight.

Such relief is dreamt of. Anyhows, am on some strong AB's so can't drink. Without drink I would be a shitty bore. You are better off without me.

Soon though, soon...

Great to see you all/ meet some new friends.

Despite the blood donation earlier in the day, I am happy to report I made it home safe and sound and had a great night of sleep.

See you soon!

It was great to meet all of you yesterday; what a fun group!

Federica, glad to hear that you made it back without keeling over. Nothing like a good beer to get the blood sugar back up.

Look forward to seeing you all again next week!
