something like rat lung worm but not rat lung worm. ARGH.
would be good if it responds to the same treatment.
Have they tried Listerine on the hotspots? curious about that. I think it's the alcohol content that does something.
I don't know anything about muscle fibre tests but I guess it's something to google.
PS try to have a good time on your trip... you might need to let this go a bit.
