In a Strange Twist of Fate, After Only Being in Tucson a Couple Months

Ebola has contracted Valley Fever.

Doesn’t that look weird?

I mean, my poor baby, of course.

But still.

UPDATE: Thank you all for your concern, but, ONE day after his diagnosis, a night’s sleep and disregarding the best medical advice the AirForce had to offer (like a month in quarters), my intrepid son was on his next secret mission for the country’s security: acquiring a virus known as H-A-N-T-A…

At least the medicine’s free for another four years.

    Good Lord! Are they treating him or is this watch-and-wait?

  2. JeffS says:

    Bizarre, and I hope this is but a brief interlude, with his recovery in the near future.

    ‘Cuz I doubt that Ebola is trending towards Valley Girls these days.

  3. Donna D. says:

    THS, He needs you out there to take care of him!

    Watch and wait, Dr. Alice. Took a bucket of blood, but results won’t be back for a while, so he told them to take him off SIQ. He didn’t want to get set back in class, so he’s been at school after only one day home. Waste of my time, Donna. {8^P

    Prayers for a full recovery!

  6. Ave says:

    Good grief, hang in there Ebola and chow down on those anti-fungal medications! I’m thinking of you and sending you love.

  7. tree hugging sister says:

    They’re not medicated him, Ave. Not yet anyway (other than Motrin for the sore chest), since it takes a while for bloodwork results to come back in the military. Like WEEKS.

  8. Dr Alice says:

    For what it’s worth, he’s a healthy guy, he should be OK. I’d be interested to hear the results though, when they are back. We used to see cocci occasionally when I was a resident in San Fran, we’d get folks from the Central Valley who had it.

  9. tree hugging sister says:

    I’ll tell him to take notes. I’m sure he’d love to, since he’s pretty involved that way anyway. (Gets the medical bent from his dad.)

  10. Dr Alice says:

    Just saw the update. Rock on, Ebola!!

  11. tree hugging sister says:

    He’s a tough nut, Dr. Alice. I’ll leave it to you to guess the operative word. 🙂

  12. Ebola says:

    AF medicine is shittier than Navy medicine. All I’m sayin. Thx for the wellwishing everyone!

  13. Laura says:

    Tell him he’s gonna get the Bubonic if he keeps playing with dead rats.

    Best to him!

  14. tree hugging sister says:

    Oh, terrific. Give him another great idea why doncha.

  15. nightfly says:

    Aw, that’s sweet… he made a friend!

  16. mojo says:

    Starting a flea circus, is he?

  17. JeffS says:

    What, Ebola, are you feeding a pet snake now?

  18. Kate P says:

    Is that the military’s version of kennel cough?

    (My cat cheered when I showed her the photo!)

  19. Ebola says:

    Hell no Jeff. That cute little packrat fucked up my exercise equipment at the squadron. He’s lucky I didn’t use a “life” trap, then duct tape his ass to a tire and light the little bastard on fire. Cute doesn’t make up for evil deeds. 😛
