Re: West Nile - FYI


My heart goes out to you, I hope your son can recover from this rapidly, his
youth is on his side. I know too well how it feels to have a child in
danger. Guard your own health while you are under such stress so that you
can be there to do what you need to do. Time to break out the multivitamins
and watch your nutrition for you won't realize how run down you are getting
until later.
