Roseomonas mucosa!

Even her infections sound cool.

No it is not a Harry Potter spell, though I keep reading it with Hermione Jean Granger's inflection: "Wingardium Leviosa!"

"Roseomonas mucosa!"

So Natalie had a pretty nasty skin abscess (boil) lanced last week. She had to take time out of the pool and missed out on the Fitter and Faster swim clinic that she was so excited to see. We waited nervously (OK I was nervous, she was oblivious) to make sure it wasn't MRSA AKA Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. I read up, and it definately sounds like something that few people, except the immune-suppressed, encounter.

She's back to swimming, and has healed nicely. This report basically just told us what it was that caused the blasted thing.
