“”Do wonder if Lucy received any flu vaccine this year.””
That comment will get you into all kinds of trouble here. People simply will not educate themselves about the dangers of vaccines and we sure as heck can’t expect the government to reveal what they know or the drug companies to take responsibility. How many people know about the Rotovirus vaccine pulled from the market in March due to contamination and given to 1 million babies in this country and 30 million worldwide?
Drug company profits trump all else!!! $500 billion a year by 6 vaccine makers in this country.
My mother had GBS at the age of 66, but there was no vaccine involved. It was preceded by a lingering stomach virus. A friend's mother also had it in her early 60's, preceded by a viral infection. Kind of sobering to think you can get something that normally runs its course (the common cold, the flu, Norwalk, etc.), and end up paralyzed.
If Lucy is only complaining of weakness, they've caught it early. She's lucky, she will probably need PT but the GBS will not progress to the point where she is fully paralyzed or needs to be put on a respirator.
