Polio like symptoms

5 kids in CA have paralysis from Polio like virus between 2012 2013! Even though the virus has been eradicated for more than 30 years, 3 countries still have it! Paksitan, Nigreria and Afghanistan Yikes!!

Poliovirus is part of the Picornaviridae family, which also includes enteroviruses and rhinoviruses (better known as the common cold). There are more than 100 types of enterovirus that cause 10 million to 15 million infections in the United States each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

      I'm IN california!!! I read this a week ago and found myself starting to freak out.. THEN I thought.. ugh.. there is no way I can protect my kids from stuff like this unless I put them under lock down.. and I have to do what I always do and pray and hope they are and stay healthy...

      These sorts of things can freak me out, but the I try to avoid them as much as possible.. I educate myself and then move on.. There is SO MUCH that they COULD get.. and really there is nothing we can do... So, do I spend my days worrying and freaking out (sometimes yes) or just stay healthy and clean and have faith we will be healthy and abel to handle anything that comes our way....
