    Anybody watch this last night? I know it's nothing more than the story of two men with the disease, but it was scary as anything I've seen on the news in a while.

    I read that a third of all pediatric H1N1 deaths have been healthy kids.

    You never know how a virus is going to affect a given person. My brother developed viral meningitis over the summer-- very scary-- had to be hospitalized in his own hospital. They eventually sent him home where his healthy baby girl lives, which freaked me out. But he told me that anybody else who got the virus would likely suffer no more than a cold. He just happened to get brain swelling from it.

    Thank God I got my kid vaxed for H1N1, now I just have to find a booster for the little booger.

    But she'll probably catch something for having been in Joisey.

    I would never take her to Jersey, dools. That was for me. :D I sat in the parking lot looking around and thought about how Tony Soprano and one of his crooked politician buddies could be having a meeting in the next car over.

    I keed, I keed the Jersey boys and girls.
