“”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 family passed on the swine flu vaccine. I hope this is not the cause of Luci’s illness.
I guess it’s safe to assume that the MSM will do their best “not” to ask this question.
GBS is an autoimmune "disease" and can be triggered by more than flu, flu vaccines or vaccines in general. My wife contracted it a few years ago apparently as the result of surgery -- one of the known triggers.
The good news is that if caught soon enough a 100% recovery is possible (my wife's was one of those), and it sounds like Luci's case is even earlier-stage than my wife's.
The bad news is that once you've had it you are more susceptible. We had discussed having my wife come along on my next trip to India (if ever), but the vaccinations necessary are a concern.
My mother had G-B syndrome some 20+ years ago.
At the time, she was taking allergy-desensitization shots - a new batch of vaccine, later found to be contaminated, was ruled to be the proximal cause of the illness.
My Mom had ALL here extensive medical bills (including a 2 week stay on the ventilator in the ICU, and nearly a year of physical therapy) paid for by the manufacturer.
Needless to say, NOBODY in my family has received ANY vaccines since that time.
