Butterfield Lake water caution

A cottage owner has gotten quite sick - possibly from the lake water.  He has been hospitalized with respiratory problems since late last week.  Here is an update from him and a cautionary message in his own words:

From the cottage owner:

Update – Dr. was just in.  They are now convinced I have an unknown infection.  They took more blood culture material from both arms today.  They hope to have some preliminary culture info by tomorrow from Friday evening and yesterday draws.  Dr. Shah said they are not changing my room, but consider my private room, isolation.  Because of my cat getting sick they are interested the two of us MAY have / had the same issue.  As of tomorrow they are turning my case over to Infectious Disease Team Drs.

In light of this, it’s up to you guys, but I think at the very least, it might be prudent to alert lake members, etc. to be cautious of lake water.  Last weekend, little kids were frolicking in the water everywhere, having fun.  I would not wish the symptoms I have on anyone. I still can’t breathe without 247 02. THEY ARE NOT SAYING IT’S THE LAKE.  They just don’t know.

I will keep you posted.  Feel free to update the state people if you feel it’s necessary.
