flu-symptom-awareness

A registered nurse and mother Brodi Willard issued a serious caution to parents urging them to keep their eyes peeled for hives if they have sick children in the house. A Facebook post by Brodi reveals how this rash can actually be a symptom of the flu. She wrote:

“My son came home from school with hives. Every time he would scratch, more would appear. We tried changing his clothes and giving him a bath, but nothing helped. I called his pediatrician. They said they had two kids come into the office that day with the same symptoms and tested POSITIVE FOR INFLUENZA. I took him to the doctor this morning and he tested POSITIVE for INFLUENZA B”

He has had NO symptoms. No fever, no cough, and no runny nose. He only has hives,” said Mum Brodi. To make matters worse it was his only symptom.

 

For 2017 -2018 season there have been “37 influenza-associated pediatric deaths” reported so far, these warnings are not to be taken lightly.

The post ended with Brodi stressing the importance of checking for hives, regardless of whether your child hasn’t shown any other symptoms.

“Keep watch on your children [and] if they develop hives, please call your pediatrician. I have never heard of this symptom but it is obviously something to be on the lookout for.”

Influenza is a highly contagious viral infection of the respiratory passages causing fever, severe aching, and catarrh, and often occurring in epidemics.

A wide range of complications can be caused by influenza virus infection of the upper respiratory tract (nasal passages, throat) and lower respiratory tract (lungs).

Beware Of This NEW Hotel Scam When You Are Checking Into Your Hotel

New hotel scam that you need to be aware of. Please take this very seriously as its a very simple scam.

This is one of the smartest scams I have heard about. You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room) and they don’t retain the card. You go to your room and settle in. All is good. The hotel receives a call and the caller asks for (as an example) room 620 – which happens to be your room.

The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following: ‘This is the front desk. When checking in, we came across a problem with your charge card information. Please re-read me your credit card numbers and verify the last 3 digits numbers at the reverse side of your charge card.’ Not thinking anything wrong, since the call seems to come from the front desk you oblige. But actually, it is a scam by someone calling from outside the hotel. They have asked for a random room number, then ask you for your credit card and address information.

They sound so professional, that you think you are talking to the front desk. If you ever encounter this scenario on your travels, tell the caller that you will be down to the front desk to clear up any problems. Then, go to the front desk or call directly and ask if there was a problem. If there was none, inform the manager of the hotel that someone tried toscam you of your credit card information, acting like a front desk employee.

This was sent by someone who has been duped…….. and is still cleaning up the mess. P.S. Please, consider spreading the word by forwarding this message. Who knows, you might just help someone avoid a nasty experience. All traveling often should be aware of this one!’

She hears rumor about a dog who cries in the mountains at nightime – climbs up and makes discovery like no other

Animal lover, Trinity Smith from Colorado, USA was in two minds when she heard a rumour about a dog barking up on a nearby mountain.

Faced with the question, was there a poor despairing animal stuck on the mountain or could it just the sound of a coyote barking at night?

The mountain can be an unforgiving landscapecwhere there are no people or buildings. A domestic dog lost in such a desolate landscape would be at the mercy of nature and its wildlife.

However, weeks prior this a dog was reported missing in her local area. This fact alone gave Trinity the determination to go and see if the barking was in fact that very dog. Even though the chances of the dog surviving out there for that period of time was very slim.

Without further hesitation off up the moutains she set in search of a the dog.

It would was not long after arriving that she heard faint barks and realised that the runours were true, there was a dog lost up there somewhere. As she scaled the mountain the it clearly became evident the barks were coming from a dog. But the problem she now faced was how to establish where exactly the barks were coming from. They were coming from a distance away and it was tedious to pin point the exact location.

Hours passed as Trinity searched and searched for the misfortunate dog, but darkness had began to set in and Trinity knew the mountain was no place to be at night.

Knowing she had narrowed down her search area Trinity took off again the very next day to search. This time she took a companion, her friend Sean Nichols. For hours they searched, shouting at the top of their lungs for the dog but to their dismay received no reply.

Their spirits were beginning to drop and faith in now finding the animal was low. But then out of nowhere they heard a bark, it was near enough that they could direct themselves to its source. As they hurriedly rushed to where they had heard the bark they came upon sickly thin dog heaped next to a rock. The dog was in desperate need of help.

There is no doubt in Trinity and Sean’s mind that the dog would have soon died if they had not found it that fateful day.

When they found the owners of the dog they were shocked to hear it was 14 years old. The dogs name was Chloe and she was in fact the missing dog reported weeks ago. Chloe had got off her leash while out walking with her owners six weeks earlier. They had failed to find her that day and they themselves had searched everyday for several weeks.

Chloe had spent six week alone in the unforgiving landscape of the mountainside. When Sean and Trinity found her she weighed 26 pounds and was nothing but skin and bone. After the long trek back down off the mountain they posted to social media that they had located the dog that was barking at night high up in the mountain.

The owners who had all but lost hope for their beloved pets safe return found out a dog had been found. Without any hesitation they contacted Trinity to see if it was their beloved Chloe.

Chloe and Sean were heading to the pet store some dog food the very moment her owners had rang. They arranged to meet with the in the parking area outside the store. There were emotional scenes when Chloe was finally reunited with her owners.

Dogs as old as Chloe are not built to loose vast amounts of weight at their age. When a dog is that old it becomes harder for the body to recover. Amazingly Chloe showed major signs of improvement only days after being rescued. She really is one heck of a fighter and survivor.

Chloe has been getting regular visit from Trinity and Sean who are now her new besties. It will take a few more weeks before she is back to full health again but we are sure she will have many more happy years ahead of her. For a dog of her age to survive six weeks on a barren mountain alone truely is a remarkable achievement.

It is always great to see animal lovers go above and beyond to help a poor stricken animal. Hats off to Trinity and Sean, you are two remarkable young individuals. Please SHARE Chloe’s remarkable story and lets wish her a speedy recovery!

From The Daily Headline:

DEAR MA AND PA:

I AM WELL. HOPE YOU ARE. TELL BROTHER WALT AND BROTHER ELMER THE MARINE CORPS BEATS WORKING FOR OLD MAN MINCH BY A MILE. TELL THEM TO JOIN UP QUICK BEFORE ALL OF THE PLACES ARE FILLED.

I WAS RESTLESS AT FIRST BECAUSE YOU GET TO STAY IN BED TILL NEARLY 6 A.M. BUT I AM GETTING SO I LIKE TO SLEEP LATE. TELL WALT AND ELMER ALL YOU DO BEFORE BREAKFAST IS SMOOTH YOUR COT, AND SHINE SOME THINGS. NO HOGS TO SLOP, FEED TO PITCH, MASH TO MIX, WOOD TO SPLIT, FIRE TO LAY. PRACTICALLY NOTHING.

MEN GOT TO SHAVE BUT IT IS NOT SO BAD, THERE’S WARM WATER. BREAKFAST IS STRONG ON TRIMMINGS LIKE FRUIT JUICE, CEREAL, EGGS, BACON, ETC., BUT KIND OF WEAK ON CHOPS, POTATOES, HAM, STEAK, FRIED EGGPLANT, PIE AND OTHER REGULAR FOOD, BUT TELL WALT AND ELMER YOU CAN ALWAYS SIT BY THE TWO CITY BOYS THAT LIVE ON COFFEE. THEIR FOOD, PLUS YOURS, HOLDS YOU UNTIL NOON WHEN YOU GET FED AGAIN. IT’S NO WONDER THESE CITY BOYS CAN’T WALK MUCH.

WE GO ON “ROUTE MARCHES,” WHICH THE PLATOON SERGEANT SAYS ARE LONG WALKS TO HARDEN US. IF HE THINKS SO, IT’S NOT MY PLACE TO TELL HIM DIFFERENT. A “ROUTE MARCH” IS ABOUT AS FAR AS TO OUR MAILBOX AT HOME. THEN THE CITY GUYS GET SORE FEET AND WE ALL RIDE BACK IN TRUCKS.

THE SERGEANT IS LIKE A SCHOOL TEACHER. HE NAGS A LOT. THE CAPTAIN IS LIKE THE SCHOOL BOARD. MAJORS AND COLONELS JUST RIDE AROUND AND FROWN. THEY DON’T BOTHER YOU NONE.

THIS NEXT WILL KILL WALT AND ELMER WITH LAUGHING. I KEEP GETTING MEDALS FOR SHOOTING. I DON’T KNOW WHY. THE BULLS-EYE IS NEAR AS BIG AS A CHIPMUNK HEAD AND DON’T MOVE, AND IT AIN’T SHOOTING AT YOU LIKE THE HIGGETT BOYS AT HOME. ALL YOU GOT TO DO IS LIE THERE ALL COMFORTABLE AND HIT IT. YOU DON’T EVEN LOAD YOUR OWN CARTRIDGES. THEY COME IN BOXES.

THEN WE HAVE WHAT THEY CALL HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT TRAINING. YOU GET TO WRESTLE WITH THEM CITY BOYS. I HAVE TO BE REAL CAREFUL THOUGH, THEY BREAK REAL EASY. IT AIN’T LIKE FIGHTING WITH THAT OLE BULL AT HOME. I’M ABOUT THE BEST THEY GOT IN THIS EXCEPT FOR THAT TUG JORDAN FROM OVER IN SILVER LAKE . I ONLY BEAT HIM ONCE. HE JOINED UP THE SAME TIME AS ME, BUT I’M ONLY 5’6″ AND 130 POUNDS AND HE’S 6’8″ AND NEAR 300 POUNDS DRY.

BE SURE TO TELL WALT AND ELMER TO HURRY AND JOIN BEFORE OTHER FELLERS GET ONTO THIS SETUP AND COME STAMPEDING IN.

YOUR LOVING DAUGHTER,

ALICE

Your 9 Months Pregnancy Life In 4 Minutes!!! This Is Beyond Amazing!!!

Sexual education is a particularly touchy topic depending on where you’re from, but it’s still absolutely vital if we want our children to make proper decisions later on in life.

I think we can all agree that the more a person understands about anything the less likely they’ll be dumb about it themselves. Regardless of whether you believe in abstinence or proper sexual safety, knowing what to expect when the time DOES come will make it a whole lot less stressful. Thanks to the internet there are loads of misinformed people out there, and PSNX is aiming to correct that.

In the four minute video you’re about to watch you’ll discover what exactly happens inside of the womb from conception to birth, and it doesn’t hold anything back! They show you the distance sperm travels to reach the egg and what happens when it finally makes it; what the tadpole looks like when it’s starting to grow actual limbs and they even show you the development of our sexual organs. At around the 3 minute mark you can even tell the baby will grow into an evil genius…

When they finally got to the birthing process (“finally” is fairly relative here) you can see how the baby’s skull is moved around a bit to fit through the pelvis. Why would knowing how that works be important? So no one ever sees their baby when it’s coming out and assumes it’s deformed or something – trust in medicine, it’s a natural occurrence!
