Swine Flu

As many of my readers know, Myturo is Mexican and his family lives just a few hours South of Mexico city where this Swine Flu that has come about originated. It is said that as a cause of this fly 149 Mexican citizens are dead, Schools, Cathedrals and Public Events are either canceled or postponed indefinitely. This past Sunday, Cardinals gave mass to empty churches, the popular Pumas vs. Chivas (soccer), who had been sold out, played for an empty stadium. Mexicans in the D.F. (Distrito Federal = Mexico City) are walking around with face masks, if they leave their houses at all. Doctors and hospitals are turning people with symptoms away, simply because they are overflowing.
And who was thinking of traveling to Mexico City for mother's day? No, not the Pope!
My husband. Myturo.
Thank God he possesses at least a few marbles in that nutty head of his because he has decided that going is not worth the risk. Not worth the risk to his or our health and not worth the risk of a complete border block and not being able to re-enter the U.S. indefinitely. Not to mention, if that were to occur, beside the fact we would be indefinitely without income Myturo might also lose his residency for being outside the U.S.A (if the border block were to last longer than 6 months, God forbid)
Prayers for those who are sick, for those caring for the sick, and for the virus to stop spreading globally will be flowing tonight to Heaven. God hear us, hold us, heal us!

    Amen to that!

    Two confirmed cases here in SA 8 waiting to be confirmed, schools on the east side (in Cibolo) closed this week. Scary things!
