i agree with other honourable members here, you seem to be an ass of the highest order. i hope when strife comes your way, you remember what you posted here.
it may be of benefit to you to find a large cooking pot and boil your head for a spell. make sure the oozing crap that floats doesn't get in your eyes.

I hope, when another oil rig goes, there is a tsunami to bring the oil into your cities and wreck them. I hope these tornadoes continue, and get stronger and more devastating, and then, I hope you run out of money to care for the "people" affected.

i am laughing at the moment. i have just exposed my grandson to your humanity. he will be asking questions and i thank you for your posts. this is an important stage in his eduction regarding sociopathic characters. there are no shortages of the type of mindset you possess and i do hope you don't get a hernia removing yourself from your battlechair, scattering your used kleenex and pizza boxes aside.

btw i am in the uk and i am occasionally amused when i come across this type of vomit spewing wind up merchant. whatever you do here, don't open your email software whilst logged on. i suspect the sk's,bh's and root gods are lining up for a crack at your os.
take very good care on your virtual rampage.

I really don’t know why I’m bothering You are soooo not worth it … but, as a ninth generation convict (first fleet, you unhinged human) I pride myself on my humanity and apathy, of which you seems to lack by the trailer full!
You know?!
a box thingy with wheels that carts crap!
Sorry!! Of course you know what I’m talking about…

Who cares where you come from…you will always be defective,
peace…
Go have another hit….you’ll feel better soon, or not. But seriously, who cares? You strike me as a teenager who needs attention…just a feeling.
X

Ps I’m really sorry this idiot made this whole post off topic, it IS serious.
We live with mould every wet season (Oct-March) and I too care what my kids are breathing as anything that once lived seems to grow, (timber products, leather etc.) no matter how long it’s been dead. Just add some moisture in the air and bingo! It grows like a bugger!
Fortunately for us, there is, so far, no effect.
I’m wondering if it’s something to do with farming but, (I’m sorry I’m not too familiar with what rural or local production goes on in that area)
So much rubbish, pesticides, and messing with the cellular level of our farming industry, who knows what’s ‘blowing in the wind’?
They mention cutting off the bits infected by the fungus. What are other types of infection which can’t be reversed and have to be cut off? Gangrene, meningococcal etc. just a thought…

Some good news to report from Joplin……………………….

Update on my employee who was told she had pulmonary zygomycosis.

It was obvious that my employee was not getting the medical care needed if indeed she did have the fungal infection. She left for Little Rock on Tuesday of last week and spent a couple days undergoing testing to get a second opinion.

The physicians there diagnosed her with double pneumonia along with a damaged kidney.

That is a huge weight lifted.

It was a rather quite weekend as far as news…………

Hopefully this fungal will be restricted to those affected with traumatic injuries by the storm.

While double pneumonia and a damaged kidney is nothing to celebrate, I am glad it is not the pulmonary zygomycosis. I sincerely hope she is getting the treatment she needs now.

Thank for the update Clouds and as always, if there is anything that can be done from here in Tennessee, please U2U me.

There has been very little news on this fungus. Clean up efforts are in full force and many do not wear the proper gear for debris removal. With the high winds, there is a lot of dust blowing around the zone as piles of rubble are consolidated. We did receive a little rain last night if that helps......

The big question is "why" such a large outbreak of this fungus?

Below is a recent quote by the CDC on the situation here in Joplin..........

"What I can share with you is that there are 15 cases overall of people having this particular fungus," said CDC spokeswoman Lola Russell. "We're still counting, still waiting on lab results of cases under investigation. The number could change as the investigation continues."

So...here is my question. I live in Woodstock Ga. I realize that as some research that I have done has stated, that this fungus actually lives everywhere, its just a matter of people being susceptible to it...low immune systems, lung problems, etc etc. As of this morning, my neighbor (who is 78, and his wife is 66 we have known and lived next door to them for 11 years now and they have pretty much become adoptive grandparents to my children) comes to tell me that his wife has pneumonia, that after being at the doctors, the doctors confirmed she had caught this particular illness. CDC had to be contacted and she is right now as we speak in bed seriously ill. My question is, if this fungus lives everywhere and is a very common fungus, why are people just catching it now? and why would it seemingly spread to GA. If its always been here, and if she is obviously susceptible to it..why is she only catching it now? I'm concerned and confused.

Sorry to hear about your neighbor. Since she has pneumonia I am assuming that she has been diagnosed with pulmonary zygomycosis. I know the treatment for this is very aggressive due to the fatality rate being around 90%.

You raise some very good questions.

Hopefully this has nothing to do with the Joplin event.

I am interested in the type of treatment they are offering your neighbor if you are willing to share. Hopefully she is not at home but in a medical facility being treated.

I am sure everyone who reads your post will send prayers out your way……………This fungus is horrible.

She is home right now....I'm not sure of the treatment at all. I think its the beginning stages? because I saw her about 3 days ago out in her yard, we even stopped to talk and everything seemed just fine. In fact, no one mentioned a thing to me at all until this morning. I'll try to make updates as I learn more.

I and I'm more than sure her family will appreciate the prayers very much. Thank you.

The latest news concerning those being treated.......


COLUMBIA — Two Joplin tornado victims were transported to University Hospital to be treated for an aggressive fungus infection.

“We treated two patients from other hospitals confirmed to have mucormycosis,” Matt Splett, media coordinator for MU Health Care, said.
