Could it be?

Yesterday Margie had another violent attack of nausea.  It was terrible. We didn't know what to do.  We had just been to E.R. prior to this on Tuesday. Should we return?  Well we gave her some medication and she calmed down.  THEN, last night on the radio national news a report of contaminated papaya fruit from Mexico is causing salmonella.  On Margie's fruit diet for breakfast she eats papaya.  She had it yesterday morning. Today's radio report reinforced this announcement.  I went online to check symptoms of this poisoning, and sure enough, Margie has most of them.  Guess where the papaya is today?  Yes, I threw it away.  I feel badly for Margie because it is such an enjoyable fruit and we ate it for years in Brazil.  Of course we are not absolutely sure that is what has been causing Margie's nausea, but it could be.  Please pray.  We will see a doctor this afternoon.
