She's supposed to be getting out of the hospital soon and I have heard that she is breathing well. The whole family seems to be somewhat ill.
Any bad case of flu can causing bleeding from the mouth and throat.
Tick tock, tick tock.
My big concern is that there appears to be no hue and cry insofar as preparation. This is going to come back and bite the administration in the ass.
They are going to across as the Federal government incarnation of Ray Nagin- and the dems are perfectly happy to say nothing, for the time being.
I think it is irresponsible. We appear to be doing less flu testing rather than more, and the results for last year's surveillance tests in Alaska have still not been released.
People who live in areas with a high exposure to wild birds should take heed.
Just like that election year a century ago in St Pierre, Martinique, when Mont Pelee started going active...
Tick. Tick. Tick.
Some are having fits because the use of the military has been contemplated under certain contingencies, for example. Mind you, most of the countries are using their military to some extent for quarantines of culling zones for localized outbreaks.
Bush hatred is a frightening disease of the mind. Next Cheney will be accused of deliberately shooting down H5N1-infected quail over inhabited areas.
My problem is that I don't know what I can do except worry. I don't have time to invest in worry, because the payoffs are so small. I did check out some links at CurEvents, and may add an item a week to my Sams list. But Zithromax? How in the world would I be able to get that? Would my internist give me that Rx w/o cause? Probably not! My son's lungs are not the best, and like every other parent on the planet, I worry about my kids more than anything else.
You might find your doctor willing to cooperate.
