Initial lab results

I spoke to the zoovets this morning. The initial lab tests on the sheathtail bat came back negative for lyssavirus. They've sent the tissue samples to the Infectious Animal Diseases Laboratory in Geelong for further testing.

I feel rather relieved, to be honest. In the back of my mind were the little nagging doubts of "Will I need more rabies shots" and "Am I due for a fatal bout of encephalitus in 2 years?"

I think I can do a little woo-hoo now.


A big one will follow when I'm fully cleared.
