This story is one that will surely make you count your blessings and realize that your life isn’t all that bad.  Michael Money of Bellingham, Washington, was out working when he cut his hand.  Thinking nothing of it, the man continued to work.  Little did he know, he’d been infected with a flesh-eating bacteria that was going to keep eating through his arm and eventually attack his vital organs.

After working and realizing that his hand wouldn’t stop hurting, Money went to the hospital to speak with doctors.  That’s when he was told that he’d have to get his arm cut off to kill the infection.   He’d contracted necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating bacteria.

    Correction: not working out (no gym) but out working. Even better. He is better off than a lot of unemployed folks like me. If it is an on the job injury, why is he not filing a claim?

    As a bona fide germaphobe, I can’t comfortably handle things excessive touched by the public anyway, without using my hospital grade disinfectants. Yeah, I have some mental problems. Sue me.

    I assume nasty viruses and bacteria abounds. My kids freak me out at times. I would have started with a total equipment sanitary wipe down and if injured, began infection control on my way for medical treatment right away. My life is bad enough.

    That being said, was this suppose to be a plea? Mr. Money has his own blessings he can count. He is not dead and still appears relatively healthy. He had a gym membership. A prosthetic is nice but not an absolute necessity. He will be just fine.
