She'd come back a bit later looking a troubled. "Well, I know what's wrong with you though it will take at least a few days to figure out how or why." She'd hold out a piece of paper. "Arsenic poisoning."

Her eyes went wide. "Wh-what?"

Send Me an Owl! - 12:24, October 23, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I know you probably ran some blood tests to see what was going on with you and as you can see from that the levels don't actually show high enough to show red or trip anything...but from the nails and hair you can see you've been getting it in your system for a long time. Arsenic is a heavy metal and while everyone has some in their system when you get too much you start having effects of it like having too much iron since they're both heavy metals. The levels in your system are just below troubling so when you have something with it in it, it probably spikes it and you feel bad, but other than that it's not enough to show up. In India they have issues with arsenic in the water they drink, which then gets in the plants and fish people and animals eat, which then poisons them. At least they have significantly higher levels than you and have for longer but...we need to figure out where you're getting it from since we need to get this fixed quickly. Long term affects are...not pleasant and while I don't know if there's a magical cure, I know Muggles don't have one."

"So..." she bit her lip. Ash wasn't going to like this... "I usually feel worse after my afternoon tea... which Jewel always prepares..."


Melinda Adult

Send Me an Owl! - 17:07, October 23, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...you said that but like I said it's going to take a bit of time to track down the how or why. I don't know where Jewel gets the tea from...if it's from the greenhouse here then is everything contaminated or just specific bushes, and what's contaminating them...water or fertilizer or what? I know arsenic can build up in fish and leafy plants so...the tea isn't out of question it's just...how it happened you know?" She'd look a little frustrated more with herself than anything. "I'm not really a healer or herbologist so...it's going to take a little time. I don't just...know the answers and have to do a lot more library work to figure it out."

She'd hesitate. "I'd...rather not quite yet? I mean I'd like to make sure I'm right and...see if I can figure it out since I'd like to have proof. I hate to say this but...if the tea and everything is coming from what he grew then it may be his fault. Of course I'm sure he'd never mean to hurt you but...I'd rather have proof to take rather than...guesses you know?"

-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:30, October 23, 2017 (UTC)~

She nodded. "Yes... and in the meantime... I don't want Aria drinking any tea, either. Milk or water is fine for her."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:33, October 23, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod, looking surprised. "Absolutely. I didn't realize you were giving her any...and I honestly don't know if Ash drinks tea either...? I guess given you're the only one feeling bad...I assumed you'd be the only one drinking it."

-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:35, October 23, 2017 (UTC)

"She's getting older... I've given her tastes every now and then." She paused. "Ash is usually busy and doesn't join us for afternoon tea... which is usually when I'm experiencing problems."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:37, October 23, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Well then I'll see where she gets the tea from...I know Ash grows it but I think he's got like a dozen different varieties and such."

Send Me an Owl! - 17:40, October 23, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I promise to work as quickly as I can...but in the meantime don't drink anymore tea and maybe start looking at what Healers normally do for Arsenic? I know short term symptoms can be cured, but I don't know how. Overcoming long term...is something else. Might take some magic to be able to fix that."

-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

She'd knock on the door wanting to talk to Charity.

-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 16:50, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

"Come in!" she said. She was standing up, putting laundry away... she looked okay for now.


Melinda Adult

-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:22, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

"Okay for now," she said. "What's up?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:24, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Sorry it's taken so long, but the trip to South America last week delayed me. Anyway, I have some news about the arsenic though I'm having trouble putting together conclusions. Anyway, I thought you'd want to know."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:26, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

She shut one of her drawers and took a seat on her bed, giving Melinda her full attention. "What's the news?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:31, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd sit too. "So...I talked to Jewel and she said she rotates what tea bushes she gets tea leaves from depending of course on what kind you want and what's been used. She didn't want to take too much from any one bush and kill it or anything." She'd pause. "So...then I went and took some samples from various bushes. Arsenic lingers in leafy plants so I figured I'd be able to find it. I did, but only a couple ones came back with more than the normal trace amounts. I didn't do all of them because that would take forever...the gardens and greenhouses here are insanely big." She'd frown and pause again. "...anyway like I said a couple of the bushes definitely had higher concentrations so I took some soil samples and it also had it...so my guess is the fertilizer used there or maybe the water. I checked into those next...but did you have any questions on anything so far?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:44, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

"If it's the fertilizer... should we bring Ash into it?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:48, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "Maybe? I think it's either the fertilizer or the water...but I honestly have no idea how either would have such high arsenic levels. Fertilizer tends to have traces but not the amounts I'm seeing. I don't know where the plant's water comes from. In India they had issues with underground water getting large doses and poisoning people but I sort of doubt that's how the greenhouses here get watered. Like I said I have some information but...can't seem to draw any conclusions about how or why from them...so I don't know what the next steps should be."

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:51, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

"Is there any reason to suspect Jewel could be... adding it in herself?" She asked, chewing her lip.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:52, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown, giving Charity an odd look. "Why would Jewel be doing that?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 17:55, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

"I... I guess I always felt like she... disliked me because I'm not used to being waited on hand and foot. I like putting my own laundry away... sometimes I like making dinner for my family... and if she could find a way to make it so I couldn't do those things..." she left the rest of the implication hanging.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:00, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd chew on her lip nodding slightly. Personally she had been wondering more about Ash doing it...thought not intentionally...at least probably not...? "Well...if she is somehow adding arsenic to the soil or water it only seems to be affecting a small number of the plants...a few tea plants. On top of that it seems to be a very small amount...enough to potentially make someone slightly sick but not enough to show up on their bloodwork or any medical tests, or even enough that if you ran the tests on the tea it wouldn't show up as extraordinary." She'd pause to think. "If...it was intentional then it would be very precise...and she would have had to start giving it to you a long time ago...like probably ten years or more to be having the effects it is now. Seems like a...really long drawn out way to do something like this....and House Elves aren't especially known for their...long term planning or vindictive nature." She'd pause. "I mean...I guess it's technically possible but it seems a lot more likely it's some sort of accident than intentional?"

She sighed. "So do we talk to Ash or Jewel... or both?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:09, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown. "Well...I already told Jewel not to use tea from the bushes I found had it so...she's already sort of aware. I hadn't said anything to Ash yet..." She'd trail off, embarrassed by her earlier suspicions of him.

Melinda Adult

Send Me an Owl! - 18:13, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So...have you been feeling better? I know it'll take months...maybe years to fully recover but...has it helped? ...and now knowing what it is have you been able to work out any magical treatments to help?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:16, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

She grimaced. "I looked up ways to treat it and found some, but nothing I'm overly keen on trying. There were some suggestions of.... blood-replenishing potions to sort of... filter out the stuff in my system, but that means I'd have to... let out my blood, which I'm not thrilled about."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:32, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd wince and nod. "Yeah..." She'd pause. "I thought we'd left bloodletting as a treatment back in the middle ages."

-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

"Everything else just treats symptoms... anti-nausea potions. Potions that act like caffeine... things like that."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:41, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd sigh. "Well...that sucks." She'd pause, cautious. "Well...if you need help let me know."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:46, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

She nodded. "There were some other treatments... but they're... rarer. Potions that help... balance out the metal levels in my blood. I could ask Thomas if he's heard of them... I never have."

OOC: I'd try to spell out the Muggle words for them... but I'm not sciency enough to remember, and I'm on my phone so I can't copy/paste easily. :P


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:48, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "I know you're the healer and I'm not...but I would recommend you do that...if you want I can even go talk to Thomas for you about it."

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:50, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

"Maybe I'll have Ash talk to him. If they're rare... they're rare for a reason. Ingredients are probably expensive. And obviously that's not an issue for us."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:52, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...well given how much I travel and where I go I have some...rarer potion ingredients too or can get them when I go places if we need. Especially those related to or from magical creatures."


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:54, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

"Thomas would be the one to ask about foreign ingredients."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:56, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So...do you want Ash to go talk to him...or do you want me to and I'll let you know what he says, and if we need anything we don't have?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 18:59, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

She considered that. "You can talk to Thomas." She grabbed a piece of parchment from her bedside table and wrote down the name of the potion. "I'll just let Ash know... so that if he sees a large transaction... at least he knows where it went."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:07, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod and take the parchment. "Another thing to add to your conversation with him." She'd pause then look at Charity curiously. "I guess it doesn't hurt to let Ash know but...isn't this your money too? I mean...you don't really need to like ask him do you?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 19:12, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

She shook her head. "I'm not asking. But it doesn't seem right to go spending a lot of money on something without at least letting him know it's going to happen."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:17, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod...that seemed fair. "Alright. Well I'll go talk to Thomas." She'd pause. "...anything else I can help with?"


Charity Prince adult 2

Charity Prince Hufflepuff Alumna
-"Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, so is the art of Humanity."

 – 19:18, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

She shook her head. "No... but thank you, Melinda. For everything you've done."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 19:21, November 2, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Of course." Charity's thanks struck her a little odd. Why wouldn't she have done what she'd been doing...trying to help? It hadn't occurred to her that not doing it was even...an option. Charity was her sister.

OOC:We can end here and go to Thomas maybe at the Potion shop, or keep going here if you had more.
