Lord have mercy.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Any word as to how serious this WNV is?

We are still waiting to get more word.  This is a cousin I really loved in my youth (very loving and full of joy,) but it has been years since I have seen her.  Unfortunately she lives far away.  I found out about the WNV yesterday when talking with another cousin who is more closely related.  That cousin is going to get back to me as soon she knows more.

I've heard that most people who get WNV don't even get sick and those who do get sick will sometimes get a mild version of it.  I would imagine she's symptomatic, but let's hope and pray she has the milder version.

Thanks, everyone, for your prayers.  This cousin of mine really is someone who has a pure and loving heart.  I could tell stories, but I don't want to go on and on.  I miss seeing her and when I heard she was sick it really hit me.
