Black Plague - Today - Pics

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...=feeds-newsxml

Paul Gaylord, 59, developed the symptoms after he was bitten by a stray cat his family had adopted.
The cat, named Charlie, had caught a rodent which was stuck in his throat. It is thought that the rat was infected by fleas, which carry the disease.

After his lymph nodes swelled to the size of lemons he was rushed to hospital
Initially, Mr Gaylord thought he had the flu when he developed a fever after the bite.
After antibiotics failed to make him feel better, he was rushed to hospital when his lymph nodes swelled to the size of lemons.


He still faces surgery to remove his withered, blackened fingers and toes - one of the symptoms of the terrible disease that gave it the name, the 'black death'.
Although the welder will not be able to work again, he is lucky to be alive.


'They tell me I'm doing really good considering,' he told OregonLive.com from his hospital bed at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend, Oregon.
'I do feel lucky. I'm going to have a long row to hoe but at least I have one.'

Recent research suggests that the bubonic plague is on the increase in affluent communities in the U.S.
It used to be associated with squalor, unsanitary conditions and rodent infestations
But as more people move to natural environments where carriers such as ground squirrels and woodrats live, infection increases
The disease is caused by the bacteria Yersinia pestis that is spread through flea bites
About 11 cases of plague a year have occured in the U.S. since 1976
17 people have been infected by the disease in Oregon since 1934
'His heart stopped. His lung collapsed. They told us he wasn't going to make it,' she said.
Mr Gaylord spent nearly a month on life support and it was so touch-and-go at one point that his son, Jake, flew in from Austin, Texas, to say goodbye.
His wife organised a baptism as Mr Gaylord has always regretted not being christened as a child.
'I was delirious,' said Mr Gaylor of his memory of the month he spent in intensive care.
'Things didn't seem real. The clock ran backwards.'
Now he's recovered, Mr Gaylord will have to learn how to walk again and use his fingerless hands.
'It will be a long rehab,' he said. 'I have to learn to do everything again.'
Although the plague is generally connected to the Middle Ages, Mr Gaylor is the 17th person sickened by the disease in Oregon since 1934.
It causes an infection that kills cells, causing gangrene which often results in amputation, if not death.

Re: Black Plague - Today - Pics

Gaylord is an actual last name? Holy fuck!! that used to be a serious insult when i was a child. and Holier fuck @ his dead fingers.

this article makes me dizzy.. it seems to reiterate itself.. i usually double read sentences from time to time to further comprehend it.. i thought i was going crazy..

this part confuses me.. "Paul Gaylord, 59, developed the symptoms after he was bitten by a stray cat his family had adopted.
The cat, named Charlie, had caught a rodent which was stuck in his throat. It is thought that the rat was infected by fleas, which carry the disease."..

so did the cat, the rat, or fleas carry the disease? /rhyme.

Gaylord can also be a first name.

He better start hoeing the rows, lol!

The fleas started it! They gave it to the rat, which the cat tried to eat, got infected and bit Gaylord.
