Re; The seemingly small things: Had a scratch on my finger back in the ’80’s. Cleaning up my Dad’s dog yard. Picked up some big beef bones that were lying around–one had maggots. Eww yuck, but didn’t go to wash my hands for another couple of hours. That night at 3AM my entire arm was swollen, throbbing, red streaks up the arm. Took me over two weeks of double antibiotics to get over it. BAD! So yes, the small things’ll git ya!
