Peter Watts Hospitalized for Necrotizing Fasciitis

Canadian author Peter Watts is recovering from surgery for necrotizing fasciitis, or flesh-eating bacteria, in Toronto’s East General hospital. Part of his right calf was removed. According to Watts’s blog, “The good news is, I’m not dead, and the necrotising bugs have been scraped out of me as far as anyone can tell. The bad news is I’m stuck here in the e-boons for at least another week, and even after that I’m going to be functionally immobile for months while physio, skin grafts, and a nifty little variant of the Shop-Vac used to suck together the edges of gaping wounds work their magic.”

See Peter Watts’s blog for more information.
