I don't have a degree in science, so I am not exactly sure how to word what I am thinking? So C Tetani can be sitting on my cutting knife and if I accidentally stabbed myself, then I would get the bacteria inside and if they found an anaerobic niche then they would create the toxin? Or, would my...

The bacteria (in its vegetative, growing, living state) are anaerobic. The endospores are indifferent. They withstand heat, desiccation, chemicals, and oxygen that the vegetative cells would not survive. They will only germinate in favorable (i.e. anaerobic) conditions.
The Clostridium tetani species is an obligate anaerobe. The anaerobic microenvironments created by other organisms allow them to live in soil. The vegetative cells create endospores in anaerobic conditions. The endospores are indifferent to the presence of O2, but will only germinate in an anaerobic condition.

Sunday night we had Pasta with Savory Caramelized Onions and Swiss Chard (from my garden!) and a green salad. Last night we had Sweet Chili Lime Tofu with Wok Steamed Collards (from my garden!) and Quinoa and Thai-Style BBQ Veggies. Tonight we are having Penne with Spinach and Canellini Beans, and a green salad.
Carter was 30lbs at a year, I was carrying him on the front in the MT, and I'm tiny at 5'3" and 95lbs.
My youngest son was nearly hospitalized at 4 weeks for RSV. He is exclusively breastfed, and had not been vaccinated at that point. He was very sick, I could not lay him down for a diaper change, because his respiratory function was so compromised - he would become cyanotic. I begged to keep him out of the hospital. My older son was hospitalized around that age, and it was miserable. Plus, my older son is still nursing, I did not feel that I could leave him. I...
