There is no doubt that this strange rain fell on the small U.S. town in the Northwest, however, is it really an indication of germ warfare? According to the video below, in 1994 in the town of Oakville Washington a gelatinous rain came down for the first time as reported by local police. The substance found contained white blood cells, and was sent in for testing. The public tests and a private lab discovered that is was teaming with live bacteria. Shortly after this rain fell, many of the residents became very ill and a lot of animals also died.

There are now suspicions of biological weapon testing in Oakville Washington, but the military denies any involvement in the mysterious rain that fell in this small town. And for that matter, any weapons using weather control at all. But there are those who do argue those claims. Could this be an unfortunate event of contaminated water having been evaporated and happening to come down on Oakville?

In addition, some are also linking this incident to the now publicized outbreak of dangerous respiratory pneumonia in the Ukraine and Romania in the past few months that has caused a very high death toll. People are connecting them as germ warfare having been tested for the past 15 years or more and that now this respiratory pneumonia is a bio weapon as well. Of course there is no verification in these stories, no military coming forward from any country, no terrorist cell taking responsibility, and no concrete evidence to really support any of the claims.

It is a sad situation, that unknown and unexpected disease comes about in our world. But I feel it is just that, a freak coincidence that happens to effect human health in a dramatic way. I have seen evidence of weather control weapons and the “proof” has yet to convince me that it is very advanced or that it’s used to spread disease. I am more apt to believe that someone would release a disease such as we are seeing in the Ukraine and Romania through contact or injection, rather than the intentional distribution of bacteria through rain. Is it possible? Yes, it probably is in the future, but I really do not think we have advanced to that point as of yet. But this is just my opinion. May God bless and heal those who have been afflicted with these and all other diseases regardless of their origin.

First of all, we apologize for the lack of postings the past couple of days. Having three sick children (8 year old twin boys and a 4 year old daughter), whether it is the common cold or swine flu, is a time-consuming event for any family. We will be picking the pace back up though now that the kids seem to be more themselves and providing we don’t come down with it next.

Like most parents, as soon as we started hearing about the H1N1 virus we immediately began our research to be sure we could provide the best course of action for our family. This proved to be more difficult than expected. The H1N1 virus became quickly politicized and passed through the mass media as if it were a new plague. Within a few months the word pandemic was being used by the CDC and vaccination production had begun. The producers of the swine flu vaccine had restrictions on time and testing lifted in the effort to get it on the market as quickly as possible.

This concerned us greatly, how could we begin to understand the possible risks of a vaccination pushed through so fast? I don’t think we can, and after all the research we decided it would not be the right choice for our family to get the H1N1 vaccine. (Go to the Health category of this blog for information on what we found in our research.) But, even after this decision, there was still the anticipation of what will happen if our children became infected. I heard so many in panic because the vaccine was delayed and they just didn’t know what they would do without it. We turned to prayer at that time, and just days later our three children became ill almost simultaneously.

On Saturday one of our kids were complaining of a sore throat, slight cough, and runny nose. So, not wanting to over react, we treated him with cold medication that night and Sunday. By Sunday night the other two children had come down with coughs, sore throat, and fevers. And come Monday morning all three kids had coughs, sore throats, fevers between 101-103, runny noses, and just a ton of moaning and groaning about their misery. Like anyone would, by then, we made appointments for them to all see the pediatrician.

The pediatrician took strep throat samples as well as samples for testing for the H1N1 influenza virus. To our surprise, all of the children tested positive for both! The pediatrician said that she would question it had it taken 10 minutes to get a positive, but the results became evident in less than 2 minutes. We were then given prescriptions for antibiotics and Tamiflu all around. This was proving to be an expensive little bug. However, we would get what ever we had to make our little angels feel better.

That first night was probably the worst. We had some trouble keeping two of our three children’s fevers down, but after ibuprofen and baths it was under control. One of our boys has asthma and he had to take his inhaler 2 times. The long acting cough medicine managed their coughs nearly the entire night, although they did get some doses in between. Then we just made sure they got their prescription medications as ordered and kept up with the ibuprofen and cough medicine through the next 2 days. Our child with asthma only used his inhaler a total of 4 times though, which his reaction with his asthma was a big concern of ours in the beginning.

All in all, they were all acting mostly normal by day 3 and completely normal by day 4 (yesterday). Our run in with H1N1 and strep throat at the same time was far milder than we would have ever thought possible. It was definitely less severe than the seasonal flu and did not have as bad of an effect on our son with asthma as we anticipated. The best news, according to theory they will not get it again this season. But judging from the mildness of our experience, I do not foresee us ever being overly concerned about this illness and our family members in the future.

I know there have been deaths linked to this illness. Everyone reacts differently to all viruses, and influenza is not the only virus that can result in death. Proper precautions should always be taken and you should go to the doctor right away if influenza of any strain is suspected. I am so thankful that we did not have complications with H1N1 or strep throat in our children the past week and I pray that we will not in the days to come. My heart goes out to those who have suffered hardships due to any illness. The intent of this post is to give some insight into what happened in a normal family that came down with this virus so that others may know what to expect and to help them make informed decisions.

Although the research is still in progress, there are some diseases that seem to have a good reaction to the mixture of honey and cinnamon. It is possible that this homeopathic therapy can cure things such as heart disease, obesity, bladder infections, and more. The healing properties have shown so far to be as effective or possibly more effective than your average drugs. Definitely something to look into anyways. Check it out in the article link below!

Around 1200 veterans across the country recently received a letter from the Veterans Administration falsely telling them that they had a fatal neurological disease.  Panicked veterans from across the country notified National Gulf War Resource Center, who in turn notified the VA of the mistake. The VA blamed it on a coding error. Add this to another long list of complaints that our veterans have against this government ran health care program, and it is no wonder why so many Americans do not want national health care ran by our government.
