I am headed back home after a mini vacation, and I want to thank everyone who wrote and called for the good wishes. I’ve been feeling significantly better over the past few days, and I have only a cough and some congestion remaining.
It’s good to know the LA Department of Health is looking into what may have made some people sick. I am going back to my doctor’s office tomorrow for a couple of tests to see if they are able to determine what I had. My doctor initially diagnosed me with an upper respiratory illness, and I was given a Z-pack.
I’ve fielded a number of phone calls from news outlets (because of the mentions in DN Journal), and although I understand why they are picking up on the story, I think everyone really needs to reserve judgment about how it may have happened until the Health Department issues its findings. It seems like a “juicy” story, but people should not jump to any conclusions.
