What is the Foo section, I've also heard talk of a love section but have never been able to find them. Is it for a certain status member only? and I hope everything is ok.

Thanks, and yeah, she's doing a bit better. Might get out of the CCU today, and is out of isolation now. She had H1N1 Swine Flu and went into respiratory arrest on Monday, and almost died. Scared the crap out me, I'll tell ya!

She went into respiratory arrest on Monday evening from H1N1 influenza and viral pneumonia.

Update: The wife is out of the CCU and in a regular room now. She may even be home by Friday if all continues to go well.

Her system is now free of H1N1 viral load, they are telling me. She does have residual pneumonia congestion, but that's clearing, her cough is very wet and productive (Pete can tell you all how good that is!)

Sending good thoughts and well wishes your way Tom. Respiratory arrest is seriously scary stuff and I'm glad she's improving.

Tom, I'm glad she's better. Were you there when it happened?

And I know exactly what you've been through. My wife experienced several minutes of clinical death once after an operation. Thank God she was in the ICU then, first because she got help quickly, and second because I wasn't there and only found out about it later. I still cried my eyes out though...
