Actually, despite their huge numbers..I take
this as a postive sign. Used to be the urine
was full of really long fibers and fiber tangles.
These guys for the most part, are leaving long
before they are 1/10 of a mm...[mostly..a few hard
chargers in the bunch that are a bit larger]
I credit maintaining a high pH in keeping the
fibers from growing so damn fast. They really seem
to be severely stunted by a high pH environment.
Now..need to keep tinkering with various "protocols"
to shut down the spore factory in the gut. That's where
they are coming from...I see them in slime smears..
and in the blood..and the lesion fluid..and in the urine..
in huge quantities. The kidneys seem to be doing their
best to clear the blood of the fungus..but there is so
much entering the blood. There seems to be little
slowing down the movement of the spores from gut to blood.
Gut wall probably looks like a screen door...
Experimenting with Wright's stain. Although usually
used with blood, it is doing a good job highlighting
the translucent and hard to see "fungal" components
of the urine.
Scope pics using the tungsten illuminator will look
a little odd until camera is replaced..after several
"hillbilly engineering" repairs..the tiny "glued on"
optical filter is pretty much brokety. ...
