I’m getting too old for this shit.
As John Prine famously sang, all the news just repeats itself.
Animals at a Middletown farm are being quarantined after three people got sick, Rhode Island health officials announced last week.
The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management said one child and two adults came down with cryptosporidiosis after having contact with goats during “pet and cuddle” events at Simmons Farm on West Main Road on March 25 and 31.
“I have never been so sick,” one woman, who did not want to be identified, told NBC 10 News. “I had visited the farm on Saturday, March 31 and by Friday evening, I was extremely ill and it progressively got worse from there.”
She said she went to the hospital April 10 and a doctor asked if she had been to a farm.
“Today, I have had my first real meal and my stomach is already gurgling,” she said. “Up until tonight, I had six Saltines.”
About 60 goats and five cows are being quarantined, Simmons Farm owners told NBC 10 News. They will also be screened.
