Unfortunately, it has come to the US. A couple in my town just lost their 30 something son about 3 weeks ago. He was in the military and had been to
Germany in the last three months. He was back in the states and came down with what he thought was a cold, progressed into what he thought was the
flu. He wasn’t getting any better and felt something was wrong and went to emergency. They admitted him and couldn’t detect exactly what was
wrong. His organs began failing. They gave him large doses of antibiotics even though they had no idea what to do, but it didn’t help. He passed
before she and her husband could get to see him. She told me all this on the street the other day as our paths crossed. She said she didn’t realize
how sick he was but she spoke to him on the phone while he was in the hospital and he told her he was dying. By the time they got to the hospital, a
few states away – I believe she said Ohio, he was dead. She said the hospital said they didn’t know what was the matter with him. His memorial
service was three weeks ago. She and her husband are completely destroyed, he was their only son. I can’t express the remorse and sadness I felt
when we spoke. Her pain was so deep and I had no condolences to offer that didn’t sound shallow, I felt so inadequate. I hugged her but there were
no adequate words to express, I tried. Anyway, she stated they still didn’t know what killed him, that the hospital was completely clueless and
said they may never know.
I’d think a virus would be detectable but maybe not.
