Give 'em hell Babalu

I think any nurse tending someone in that position would be glad to take whatever he dishes out. But just for kicks, can we get PTN there to do the pinching?

My prayers and thoughts are added.

I'd pay to see Paul do the pinching.

I'll chip in too. You know that Jeff would react to that.

Sounds like he's doing ok. No word on the EEE test?

Apparently the EEE test is being conducted by the state lab. New word is it could take a total of 10 -14 days.

Why on earth would Paulie start charging now?

Thanks a ton for keeping us updated, we're all rooting real hard for Jeff.

I don't take checks. Besides I got WAY better ways of doing a 'sedation vacation' than pinching.

I'm thinking that going over there and pouring a MGD into his IV bag would get Babalu upright and out the door in a New York minute. OTOH, the thought of him hotfooting it down Charles Street with his hairy arse hanging out of a johnny gives me the willies, and I'm used to those sorts of sights.

It doesn't have anything to do with inefficient government, Knucklehead. If you want to see if something is growing you need to give it a chance to grow. Microbiology ain't microwave popcorn.

Well, it seems that a state run lab that takes two weeks, compared to a private lab that can do it in a few days, would prove my point.

My mother is a microbiologist, I'll ask her how long it takes to determine whether it's the dreaded EEE or not.

I'll give you a thousand dollars in cash if you can give me the name of one lab that can confirm a EEE assay in "a few days." I'll make it back in a month when I buy stock their stock. Don't talk **** about something you know **** about.
