Thanks. However, my daughter does not have active TB she tested TB positive. The doctors put her on antibiotics for months-the treatment will end this September-and we understand she will have to be monitored the rest of her life.

A friend of mine also had this happen to his girl. She is ok today.

My daughter was my last child and she had the best of care throughout her life. It was a shock. My wife and I had to be tested. We were clear-negative test.

My girl was flying around the country quite frequently for a while we suspect she picked it up by being exposed in the aircraft. This is simply our personal opinion.

A doctor friend of mine practiced in Nogales, Arizona during the 1960's. He told me that he was picking up cases of advanced TB, i.e. in the lungs, kidneys, bones etc. that the immigration people missed. To put it another way legal immigrants.

We are in a mess!
