In this story, the mother of an 8-month-old girl who died of pneumonia, and the daughter of an older man, are both diagnosed with pneumonia.
They both die from the illness.
The story of their illness has been reported by many media outlets and was featured in a segment on NBC Nightly News, “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.”
But the child and her mother are not alone.
A group of pediatricians and nurses from around the country who worked at hospitals in Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin, Texas, told The Next Womens Health Network that they have received a variety of messages from people who said they were sickened by an infected baby.
Dr. Michael Gaskins, who worked as an internist in Dallas in the 1990s, said he was surprised when he was told by colleagues about the outbreak.
I had no idea what it was.””
I was shocked.
I had no idea what it was.”
Gaskins said the outbreak started with a report of a patient who tested positive for pneumonia at a hospital in Houston in the fall of 2017.
That patient and two other patients tested positive in late February at another hospital.
“It was a quick outbreak,” he recalled.
“There was a lot of confusion.
Some hospitals were saying, ‘We don’t have an outbreak.
We have a problem.'”
Gaskings said he noticed that the patient was sick and asked if he needed to go to the hospital to get checked out.
The patient refused, and so did his daughter.
The family was at the hospital that night and never went to the ER.
Gaskis said it was unclear why the child did not go to a doctor because they had not been vaccinated, or why he was still in the hospital after his mother had died.
The next day, a pediatrician at the same hospital contacted Gaskings and the two nurses and asked them to get the child to the emergency room.
They went to check the child, and found that the child was still alive.
The nurses and Gaskers both said that when they asked the patient why he refused to go, he told them he had not had a vaccination and was scared.
Gaskis and the other nurse asked if there was anything they could do.
“I don’t know what the next step would have been,” Gaskysaid.
“We did not have the resources or the training to go out and get the vaccine, so we had to get help.”
Gasks parents had been worried that their child was contagious.
He said they did not know how the child could have gotten it.
“They said it’s just a fever.
But they had no symptoms.
We asked if we could get a blood test and see if he had gotten the flu,” Gasks said.
The nurse who tested the child had no explanation for the child’s flu-like symptoms, but the parents did not want to go there.
“There was no indication to us that there was a reason for the test to come back positive,” Gaska said.
Gaska said he and his wife, Traci, decided to go in and take their child for a test, but that they didn’t know the results.
“The test came back positive, but it wasn’t a positive result,” Gasking said.
The child’s parents had no history of other pneumonia.
Gasking said they also tried to see the child again after he had been discharged, but he never returned to the pediatric unit.
Gasks said he did not believe his parents had any vaccine because he did have the vaccine.
He was shocked when he learned the child still had pneumonia and the parents still did not seem to understand the seriousness of the illness, he said, adding that he was not prepared for the outcome.
Galloway said she had worked as a pediatric internist at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Dallas for 18 years before retiring in the summer of 2018.
She had recently had her daughter in the ICU at Childrens Mercy Hospital, and she said she thought she had a better understanding of how the virus works than many doctors did.
“What they do with it is they put the virus into the air,” she said.
“Then they go to work, and they do tests and see how much the virus is.
I have a sense of how that virus is doing, but I don’t see it as being the primary cause.”
Galloways family has now been told by doctors that she should go back to work.
She said she has asked to be discharged but is not certain about what will happen to her family.
“We are all so scared right now,” she explained.
“The hospital is not really sure what will be done, because there is no real plan
