From Siris chapter, A biofilm is a collection of microbes growing as a community forming a matrix of extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) separated by a network of open water channels. The image of trillions of bacteria forming a micronet in the GI reminds me of how baleen whales catch food, filter out tons of water, and scrape the baleen plates clean with their tongues to swallow.

Combine the difficult GI problems Alex faced, with trying to bring under control a hypersensitivity to heat, which produced severe headaches and fevers. His sons autoimmune system was working at warp speed. In time, IV immunoglobulin with a strict diet made the headaches less harsh, his sensitivity to heat reduced, and his personal meltdowns mild. Like Lina, Alexs road will be an arduous one
