Zika

So just a few more weeks and I believe we will be officially going for baby #2. Kind of makes me want to throw up in my mouth but also excited to get this ridiculous decision over with.

One thing on my mind has been the Zika virus. We live in Texas. In a city with lots and lots and lots of mosquitoes. Zika has already been confirmed in several people in our city who have traveled to South America. It’s only a matter of time before the virus reaches us and infects mosquitoes.

Of course in the USA we have the ability to fight mosquito infection 1,000 times better than in impoverished countries. We also have ample access to mosquito repellent and air conditioned houses.

But I’m kind of freaked out. It will be summer soon, prime time for mosquitoes here, and although I think our city is already working on mosquito control, it only takes one. The babies with microcephaly is just, so so sad. I can’t even imagine. Those poor families.

We already have mosquitoes. One bit my daughter just yesterday. They are out and about. I think I will invest in some good lotion repellent that I can put on daily. I really look forward to smelling like that. But I really believe it won’t be long until it’s here and like I said, it only takes one. What a scary scary virus.
