Two years ago, my eldest son, when an adult, received a minor cut on the tip of his finger while helping to prepare a family meal of lobster. He didn't think much of it, but to his surprise, the cut became infected. His doctor prescribed him antibiotics, but the first line of drugs didn't do the trick. The infection was resistant to them. His finger was ultimately saved, but only after he was admitted to two different hospitals, endured long regimens of expensive medications, and underwent surgery and extensive physical therapy. The finger will never be the same.
