Matt Drudge just posted several links pointing to instances of the rare flesh-eating disease "necrotizing fasciitis" in the Northwest. It's nice to see that the good news of a Seattle Times story
is about 6-year-old Jacob Finkbonner of Ferndale... His cousin
(corrected from "brother"--sorry) Jeremiah is my coworker, and it looks like he is improving:
If caught early, chances of survival are high. Last month, for instance, 6-year-old Jacob Finkbonner of Ferndale contracted it after cutting his lip playing basketball. He was hospitalized at Children's Hospital & Regional Medical Center in Seattle, and his condition has been upgraded from serious to satisfactory.
Praise the Lord!
