My Comment: This is a new disease affecting Children, so far it seems in California. Pray for the Children, here and in the middle east, and Africa.
By Debora VillalonKTVU-TV – Bay AreaBERKELEY, Calif. —Doctors say a mysterious illness sticking children is not polio, but mirrors many of the symptoms.As many as 20 children in California have suffered paralyzed arms and legs because of the disease.Two neurologists stood before reporters at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Monday evening, and admitted what they do know about the malady isn’t good.”All of the children have permanent weakness in the most severely affected limbs,” explained Dr. Keith Van Haren, a pediatric neurologist at Stanford. He and other specialists want to spread the word about the disease, not to alarm families, but to make them and doctors aware it exists. At this time doctors say the disease is not treatable.
