Necrotizing Fasciitis

Necrotizing fasciitis from a week canoe portaging in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. The docs thought there had been a scratch, and then bird crap got in it. The bacteria strain had never been seen before in USA. Necrotizing fasciitis is one of the worst infections you can possibly get.

  1. Sad to hear, I hope she makes as full a recovery as possible. FYI, she almost certainly contracted the infection (necrotizing fasciitis) in the hospital, not from the river water. Going canoeing soon, won’t be riding the rednecked zip lines.
