I was listening to the news and I feel sad that after the typhoon and the flooding in the Northern Luzon area in thew Philippines, an outbreak of leptospirosis followed. Leptospirosis is transmitted through an open wound in the skin of a person from the urine of an infected animal and is contagious as long as it is still moist. It is transmitted from urine of rats, mice and voles, a wide range of other mammals including dogs, deer, rabbits, hedgehogs, cows, sheep, raccoons, possums, skunks. this outbreak of leptospirosis emerged after the floods where urine of infected animals mix in the flood. People with open wound that wade in the flood are prone to get this ailment.
The symptoms of leptospirosis include high fever, severe headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, and may include jaundice, red eyes, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and/or a rash. About 104 people already died because of leptospirosis. It is sad that people who survived in the flood died in leptospirosos.

Today, October 6 my only daughter celebrates her 21st birthday. I was with her today when I went to the hospital for my medical check-up . She did not report to work. I am glad that my daughter is now grown up and she finished college studies and is now working. She is a help now in paying my water and cable TV bills. I wish her good health and good luck always in all her endeavors.

I was listening to the news about the devastated flood victims of typhoon Ondoy. I too am devastated with the news everyday about the plight of flood victims in the Metro Manila area and other parts of Luzon. In my work assignment, I have suggested to solicit donations, in cash and in kind, for the flood victims. I will be setting up a donation button or link in all my sites to solicit donations from blogger friends. Friends, no matter where you are you can be a good Samaritan by helping pour soul in hour of distress. I hope you can donate any amount from one dollar above. Your help will go a long way and will be so much appreciated by the typhoon victims. I will see to it that your donations will reach the intended recipients. May your blessings be ten folds. Thank you in advance.
