Blood test back, still waiting on the Idiot's!

Good Morning everyone!

Got the results of MY blood work back and I am 100% Negative for any nastiness.

Now I just have to wait for the results of the idiot's blood test who's hypodermic needle started all of this and then MAYBE I can stop the antivirals and get a decent night of sleep. Sunday night was tough, felt like a walking Zombie on Monday.

Anyway though, Back to Work. We have guests coming in from Unisea Japan today and I will be one of the tour guides.

Thanks Again Everyone for all your Good Wishes and Prayers. I know that they, and God's Grace are the reasons I will come through this unscathed!

Much Love
CB

Thanks Lord for Brian's positive blood results.

God please allow the drug abuser in this situation test clean of disease and infection. Allow him to recover from his addiction and become a productive member of society.

The explanation about the dirty needle is in a previous blog post itself.
:::cut and paste from his blog:::

The Weather has continued to be great, However MY next month has been ruined by the actions of a drug user.
Those on the island know about the Break-in at the OC building last month and the idiot who did it. Well he was a fisherman who just got off a boat and was staying at the hotel when the police followed a trail of blood and leaves to his door here. They arrested him and shipped him off. HOWEVER his luggage was left behind and placed in Lost and Found as is our policy. Well he is still in Jail so his mom called and asked us to ship it to her. So as is my duty, I donned some gloves and started packing it up for shipment. As I was going through the bags I suddenly felt a stabbing pain in my finger and pulled it out, only to find a hypodermic needle still attached. I quickly ripped it out and applied pressure to cause a it too "bleed out". Dan came over and we quickly got some iodine on it and called Security. I went straight to the Clinic and got put on a really Fun Anti-Viral named Combivir with lots of great side effects like headache, constipation, excessive tiredness and INSOMNIA. Basically you feel like Crap, are really tired, yet can not fall asleep. I have to be on it for 30 days. Oh Joy! Also got a tetanus booster and a Hepatitis Booster and have the sore arm to prove it.They are tracking the guy in Jail and ordered a blood test to see if he has anything that I have to worry about. Still Will not know the results for at least a week. However, Upon going through his bags there is enough there to easily tell that the needle was used for illicit purposes and not for diabetes. (Aluminum foil that is burnt, small empty plastic envelope, black soot residue on the bottom of spoon etc)
There is the rational part of me that knows that I have a low chance of getting anything from a needle that has not been used for a few weeks, then there is the Irrational Germaphobe Part of me that thought about cutting the finger off when I saw the needle sticking out of it. That is the same part that is adding to my insomnia. In the past three days I have slept about 10 hours TOTAL.
I'm just chalking this up to another reason to hate Drugs, and drug users. They are the most selfish worthless people on the planet. All they care about is themselves and their "needs". They are masters at manipulating family and friends, putting on shows that they "care". Here is a hint from someone who has been screwed over by them in the Past and now again. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE. They will lie, cheat. steal and knife you in the back all to feed their addiction. They do not care WHO they hurt, and they will HURT YOU.

Two posts back anonymous. A guest at the hotel was involved in a b & e and left his luggage at the hotel. The family requested he send it back, so it had to be gone through. He donned gloves, but as anyone with a brain will know, those gloves do not afford any protection against needles. He was stuck with a dirty needle while going through the man's stuff attempting to process it to be returned to his family.

'The drug user' ... 'The idiot' ... "selfish and worthless" ...

WOW. As self-proclaimed christians you're all showing a lot of compassion.

Kimi said...

grr getting rid of the bad one.

Kimi said...

Ok, now that that is gone. first and foremost I AM NOT A DAMN CHRISTIAN. I am a good moral person. Second off, The drug abuser is an idiot. He left a dirty needle in his baggage. he has to FLY out of Dutch Harbor, and possibly FLY out to make another connection. He BROKE THE LAW. His luggage was going to be checked. He could have capped the needle. But he did not. So he was extremely selfish and stupid.

And if you go through most airports, your luggage has a good chance of being gone through.

First of all, Did I or ANY of my blog followers wish or pray for anything to happen to this guy? NO, In fact quite the opposite. THEY ARE PRAYING FOR HIS RECOVERY AND THAT HIS BLOOD IS CLEAN. That is COMPASSION! You are anti-Christian. That Much is clear. No Big deal, everyone is entitled to thier opinion.
HOWEVER when you ridicule my blog followers and myself that is where I have the opportunity to respond.
Second, I stand by my comments. Drug Abusers are idiots. They are Selfish in that they only care about themselves and not the harm they can cause to the people around them. It is not that hard to dispose of a needle correctly, break it off in an empty soda containter or beer bottle. Or, if someone else is going to be touching your belongings TELL THEM ABOUT IT. That this Drug using idiot doid not think about the possible consequences of his actions makes him selfish and an idiot. Because of the grief, anxiety, stress and the damage to my liver than can be caused by the anti-virals this idiot has cost me, my company, and the insurance company time, money and my personal health. That makes him WORTHLESS.

And that is True, In a Court of Law.
If he was being charged with a crime in this case that would apply. It's not.
The facts of the matter is that this person left a dirty needle in his bags where anyone handeling it could come in contact with it. I was the one who did, but it could just as easily have been one of my housekeeping staff, a Public Attendant, A police officer or EMT, or a family member of his. What if he had gotten home and a child would have gotten into his luggage? This is why I say Drug Users are Selfish. The fact that he does not value anyone else's life makes his life worthless. It really can not be explained any better than that.
As always, everyone should always feel free to post. Unlike the Current Adminstration in the White House I actually believe in Freedom of Speech. However, be prepared to back up your comments with facts if you want to be insulting or rude.
Have a Great Day Everyone!

Longtime blog reader here

To some extent I agree with Doug. And I think it wasn't the smartest thing to go through the luggage without protection. They should have taught you that, so next time please empty such bags on a table.

Calling someone else an idiot, selfish and worthless is just hateful. None of you know what this guy goes through, what his reason is for hiding from life in drugs. I for one can't imagine!

Not saying it's okay to leave the needle uncapped in a bag. And what happened to CB is horrible. But to call him worthless and an idiot? Why demonise all people who are in such pain that their only option is to hide in drugs and loose everything else? Just imagine it happening to one of your loved ones, and beleive me: it can!

So yes: a little bit of compassion makes the world a much better place. Also for you guys and everyone around you.

Been away for a while, but glad to hear everything is A-OK. Hey, do you know why I would get an "! Access Denied" to your webpage? Eamil me when you can. Hugs!

CB I am so thankful for the good news...prayers have certainly been answered...

must be the power of the Mountain Dew lip balm that made everything ok...

and I do think that since CB is the one who has been harmed by this person's thoughtlessness he is entitled to vent and call him a few names...and if I were in CB's shoes I would probably be doing the same thing...

I've been wondering...and then I thought well, I must have missed the blog post! Well sure enough, I did! That is excellent news CB. Sorry I'm like half a year short with the congrats. But just know I was thinking about you.
