    Eeeyech! One wonders, were it viable, WHAT it might produce. (shiver,shudder,tremble)

    Hmmmm, I never thought of how an extreme bacterial infection could affect viability. How big are clap cells? That would be funny if the sperm got confused and started digging in a clap cell.

    Before becoming a nurse I was an aide at 2 seperate MH/MR facilities. Many of the patients had pica, 2 of my 3 stories involve this:
    1. Resident with colostomy would constantly pull off his bag. One day I went in to awake him & help him get ready for class. I found him sitting up in bed, picking undigested carrots out of his colostomy bag like popcorn.
    2. Two residents sitting on couch next to one another. Resident A has a large emesis, and as I get up to assist him, Resident B reaches over, grabs a handful of it, and slurps it out of his hand.
    3. Female resident in her 20's would be inc. of BM, while on her menses & fingerpaint with the "mixture" on the wall, bed, and in her braids.
    4. In clinicals on med surg, I go to do my very first solo dressing change. Remove bandages, maggots fall off of this mans leg, he proceeds to tell me that they "came from home." At this moment, his doc enters room & I ask him about it. He tells me to leave them in the wound bed. (I know that they are used for wound therapy, but really? How about getting some lab bred, sterile maggots!)

    I've seen a lot of gross stuff, but those are the only stories worth telling. Cheers!


    You win, hands down!

    Speaking of maggots, we had a rabbit come in last week infected with Cuterebra or rabbit bots. This poor creature had at least a dozen lesions. These maggots ar huge some are around 1" long. They are also spiny. Below is a description and photos of the nasties. I've also seen them in cats and dogs but this was quite a severe case.

    I saw a poor squirrel eat up with these, I felt so bad for the little thing that nothing cold be done for it .I know alot of people think squirrels are just tree rats, but I feel bad for any little creature full of those gross things.

    I removed a botfly larva from a kitten's side when i was a child. The poor thing was moaning in pain, so i took a pin and pricked its head and pulled it out. I'm glad i did even though i was yelled at by my grandfather.
