I eat Trader Joes Field Fresh Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken all of the time. I travel with my work and I keep it iced down in my cooler. I eat them at least 2-3 times a week. I buy them fromthe Fremont, CA Trader Joes. In Oct 2013 I went on vacation with my best friend to Sandestin, Florida. The seconda of our vacation I came down with bloody diarrhea and vommiting. Bloody stool as if I was on my menstral period. My girlfrieend took me to the E>R via by ambulance. They took some test, gave me some I.V. fluids and sent me home with antibiotics.
A few days later I didn’t feel any better so I returned to the E.R. and by than they admitted me for 3 days. That was on Oct.26th. On Oct 29th I needed to go back but they transfered me to another hospital that could care for me better. They diagnosised me with e-coli and HUS. My kidney’s had shut down,my platelets where very low, I had seizures for 2 days, I had an aneurysm on my frontal right lobe and had to recieve platette forecess. I stayed there until Nov.15,2013 at which point I was stable enough to fly back home to California. I was off work for 3 months because of the seizures and I wasn’t allowed to drive my car until I was seizure free for 3 monthsThis is my first trip back to workas a Flight Attendant and I was talking to another Flight Attendant when we arrived to the hotel. She knew of another girl who came down with a e-coli infection and was in the hospital for about a month and she told me it sounded simular to mine. I couldn’twait to talk to her so I google it and found it right here. It was a horrible thing to go through and I am now trying to pay off all of the medical bills. The tough part is wondering and understanding how all of this happened. One day I was on the vacation of my dreams and the next day I was in the hospital and it seemed like I would not ever get out, I was 3000 miles away from home. My girlfriend had to fly back fome and than I was all alone. I was scared, lonley, in tears at times. I didn’t even understand what was going on. I had so many doctors watching over me, I could remember there names only faces. They all would come in telling me”when I was in medical school we would hear about this diesease but never until now have I saw anyone with it” They would also tell me when you are able to get to a computer please do not try to look it up. It will tell you too much you won’t want to know. Boy they were right on the button on that one…….
