I don’t know how I got E. coli infection here in Las Cruces, New Mexico, but it almost killed me. I’m still in the mountain regional hospital with fever 104, shaking, delirious, and blood in urine. It felt like I was urinating out razors on fire.

I got an E. coli infection possibly by a deep scratch from a dog that runs around his own poop.

In 1980 when my son was being born he crowned then went back up the birth canal. Forceps were used to pull him back down, and it went through my uterus, vaginal wall, small and large intestine. In 1997 it was finally discovered after organs were shutting down, I had hemorrhage, all my insides fell into the doctor’s hands after he removed my uterus. I was told then of the damage done and that I was a living medical miracle. I had emergency C-section and got staph/gangrene where the incision was. In 1987 staph scar tissue covered my entire insides. I had severe pain/sickness.
