i agree its not serious if u take the proper precautions my son had the swine flu and once he was on his meds he felt better the next day. but if u wait to long ur in for a long road to recovery.
i cant believe they are not doing further testing to see if these kids are positive for swine flu. when i took my son they gave him the flu test and it was positive and they immediatly took another test to test for swine flu. now i will tell you i didnt get his results till he was back in school after 1 week out of school but they are right even if it is swine flu its treated just like the regular flu. my son had the swine flu and as soon as he started his meds he felt alot better and the fever went away overnight and no one else in the house got it.
4 deaths in corpus. but really its not as bad as everyone is putting it out there. just be responsible and if u run a nigh fever get to the dr.

CORPUS CHRISTI — Swine flu was partly to blame for the death of a 33-year-old Corpus Christi man, the fifth such death in the U.S., officials said.Carlos Garnica died May 6 of viral pneumonia at Northwest Regional Hospital in the Calallen area, local health officials said Friday.Hypothyroidism, hypertensive cardiomegaly, sleep apnea, morbid obesity and influenza A, sub-type H1N1 — also known as swine flu — were contributing factors in Garnica’s death, according to a report released Friday by the county medical examiner’s office.Dr. William Burgin, health authority of the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District, said Garnica’s multiple health conditions likely made it difficult for him to fight off the flu.
CORPUS CHRISTI — “Yes” was the last word Melissa Ann Cantu said to her husband nearly two weeks ago as she gasped for breath and agreed to go onto a ventilator after she was stricken with the swine flu.“We both just cried,” Abram Cantu said.The 31-year-old pediatrician’s office manager and mother of two died about 11:30 p.m. Monday at Christus Spohn Hospital South.She is the second person in Nueces County to die as a result of contracting the H1N1 virus. There have been 128 confirmed cases in the county, health officials said.“We’re in shock from how fast this went,” her husband said. “She has never had health problems before, and has been such a fighter, but her lungs couldn’t fight off the viral pneumonia and swine flu virus.“Half my heart is gone now,” he said. “The other half now has to be concentrated on my kids.”The couple had been married about seven years and have two children, Brittany Nicole Aguilar, 12, and A.J. Cantu, which is short for Abram Junior, 3. She also helped raise her husband’s sister, Rebecca Maria Gonzalez, 18, from age 12, after their mother died.Cantu had body aches the day before leaving on a trip with her husband and two children, said Dr. Luisa Lira, her employer.The 1996 graduate of Ray High School was with her family in San Antonio, after a day at Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, when her symptoms escalated.She went on rides at the water park on July 18, and she and her husband went to dinner before she started coughing and got a headache.“She kept saying she was fine, and even went shopping at the mall,” her husband said.They returned to Corpus Christi the next day and then she stayed in bed the rest of the day. Her husband asked if she wanted to go to a clinic, she said no.“I believed she knew what was best,” he said.In the morning, she sought medical help, he said.After X-rays, she was hospitalized...
CORPUS CHRISTI — A woman in her 40s who was diagnosed with the H1N1 virus died about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in an intensive care unit of a Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial, health officials confirmed.It’s the third death locally related to the virus also known as swine flu and the second this month. The woman had been hospitalized for more than a week, said Dr. William Burgin, health authority for the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Health DistrictShe had pre-existing health problems — chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung disease — that contributed to her death, he said. She was on a ventilator..
superdad and prove all things did you read the corpus christi paper? if you would have read that the 2 people that died within 10 days here had prior health issues or did nothing about it and ignored the symptoms.read the stories
i agree i was all worried about it when i knew nothing but i live in corpus and my son goes to TMISD where the swine flu was spreading like a wild fire. his dr told me if i would have waited 12 more hours it would have been worse but i took him in because honestly i thought it was alergies and i thought he had a sinus infection because he had a runny nose, cough and sneezing bad. he came home friday at 3 from school complaining of not feeling good and went to bed at 4 and woke up at 10 am the next morning. by sunday morning he had a 104.3 fever and said this can not wait till monday. all in all if you feel like you have symptoms get your ass or your child to the dr your body will not fight this off on its own. they treat it like the regular flu in the beginning but if you wait to long u will find your self in the hospital. Its not as bad as everyone is putting it out there to be my son started his meds sunday and by the end of monday he felt alot better and wanted to go back to school. i feel better knowing what i know now and if i would have known what i do now i wouldnt have spazzzzed out so much. just wash your hands or carry a hand sanatizer and do it regular. TMISD had over 170 cases of the swine flu and they were all treated and back at school.
