The Healthcare Crisis Hits Home...

Remember how I was talking about how Molly had coverage back in England but once she came back to her own country she wouldn't.... Well here we go. Molly arrived here last night and today came down with a 103 temp and a severe cough. How much will an office visit be? 100 bucks! How much will the Influenza test be? Who knows? At least 75... and then the medicine. It could easily be a hundred or more! Ugh. I shouldn't have to worry about this! I should be worried about the fact that she has all the symptoms of the swine flu, and my baby is being exposed! I should only have to worry that she is getting enough fluids and trying to bring her fever down! I should only have to worry that she and Will stay separated and if people are washing their hands! I am going to put her in our room tomorrow and make her stay in there. She has the Internet, a TV and a bathroom, and that way Will won't come in contact with her. Please everyone, pray that little William doesn't get sick. He already has a cold, so I am so afraid that he will get sicker. He hasn't had a high fever yet, and the idea scares me to death!

Poor Molly! flying all the way home and being sick! I hope she gets better soon, and don't worry too much. On the news this am they said 2,500 kids at WSU have the swine flu already too. It is crazy! and no shots are ready yet. They are testing it on kids in Seattle, so hopefully soon.
