Bill, if you read me, I hope you have recovered swiftly and well from surgery.
All my friends at English Experts,

Two days after I got home from the hospital I developed a fever of 103 F (39.4 C), and was readmitted to the hospital with a severe staphylococcus infection. I was released after 2 1/2 weeks on I.V. antibiotics and am back at home and doing well, although I am still rather weak, and need frequent rest.

I have started posting on EE again and wish to thank all of you for your kind thoughts and wishes.

Muito Obrigado.

dang! I don't know if you had MRSA but I know people that have gotten it and I guess it's potentially life-threatening! I hope you didn't get that, because once you get it the first time it tends to develop again and again. In any case, get well soon!
W. Slayman,

I really missed your posts and had no idea you was in the hospital.I just hope you get better and take always a good rest.
I wish you all the health you need.

C U!

For the ones who were curious like me:

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans. It may also be called multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ORSA).

Does Staphylococcus aureus have a plural form? I thought ... aurei, but you may think differently.
Prezado Bill,
Dear Bill,

Me entristece saber que você está passando momentos difíceis, mas estou certo que logo se sentirá melhor.
I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time, but I'm sure you'll be feeling better soon.

good luck on your recovery, Bill.
Cause I miss him, he is a gentle helper on this forum!
I haven't seen him over here for a long time.

Where has he gone?

If helping friends counts, he's surely in heaven.
