It's Here!

Houston gets its first local swine flu patient

The Houston area’s first local resident to be diagnosed with swine flu has been confirmed in Fort Bend County.
Officials at Fort Bend County’s health department said early Wednesday evening that they just received confirmation of the case from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The resident was not hospitalized and is recovering, said the officials. They said they would provide more details after talking to the family.
The confirmation came a half a day after the CDC announced that a nearly 2-year-old Mexico City boy who fell ill in Brownsville and was transported for treatment at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston was the first U.S. death.

It's worrisome to some degree. We've had it here in NY. I'm hoping it stays downstate. (Hugs)Indigo

Girl, this might be a good time to have matching gloves and hat ensembles! You know just in case and we will look fashionable!

We've had a case here, too, a Notre Dame student--who is completely recovered. I was sorry to hear about the young boy who died. :(

Yikes!

I like the hat and gloves idea!
