In recent years, Texas has been rabbling rousing about seceding from America, and it can’t happen fast enough now that I know about the flesh-eating bacteria cursing through Galveston.
A man there had to have his leg amputated after contracting the unidentified virus. It’s now the second case this year, after the city saw eight in 2015.
Ten cases of flesh-eating bacteria is ten fucking too many.
From Fox News.
[Doctors] had to amputate Brian Parrott’s right leg after it became infected at a beach in Galveston, Texas, which is on the Gulf Coast of the state. Although local authorities haven’t yet identified the bacteria, they speculated it may be vibrio, a common flesh-eating bacteria that lurks in coastal waters and can infect people through open wounds.
Parrott reportedly went to the beach Sunday, June 12, and a day later he began vomiting. Next, he noticed sores on his leg.
The sequence of events sounds like a nightmare version of a Craig David song.
“You go swimming with your family on Sunday, you go to work on Monday, you have a red leg on Tuesday, Wednesday you have boils on your leg, Thursday you lose the leg, ” [Parrott’s Mom Donna] Dailey told [Fox 26 Houston].
Parrott is still in intensive care, fighting the bacteria, struggling for his life.
Do you wanna see his leg before he lost it.
Are you sure?
I’m warning you.
Here you go.
This is your last chance to look away.
I’m promising. The next thing you are going to see is the picture.
Include Texas when we build that wall.
