  2. Underlying health reasons, a big clue. the swine flu is nothing more dangerous than the AB flu. wash your hands, avoid kissing people who cough, don't eat from communal plates, open doors with elbows, use tongs to recieve and disburse coins and bills, use condoms on all eleven proturences, pay a lot of money for swine flu insurance, and don't forget to take your vitas and eat right. Luv Mom.

  3. Underlying health reasons could be a hospital infection or hospital acquired pneumonia. Scripps isn't going to tell you if that is the cause.

  6. I wish they would specify what "underlying heath issues" so that all of us understand the risks. It feels as if information is being withheld.
