Chuck, I'm so sorry you've had to go through this and so happy you are still with us! If you look up Willow Springs Water Park Arkansas Department of Health), Arkansas, you'll find a little girl (13) who went through the same thing. She got the infection from diving into that lake. What's strange is that Willow Spring's has been around for many years. My parent's went there in the 1940's !
