    I can't make this stuff up....

    Gotta tell this one:

    Had an EMS call the other night, it was dispatched as a high priority sick call. We get there, to find a 26 year old woman who is absolutely frantic. She apparently has one of the flu bugs going around, with a bit of a high fever-102.8. Her big concern? 0.2 degrees higher and she has Ebola..... Literally ask if she could have Ebola even though she's not at 103.0 yet.

    Yes, they walk amongst us!

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    Here's hoping I have a few of these someday.

    Just ask her "have any doctors, Nigerians, or Nigerian doctors up-chucked on you in the past week?" And there's your answer
    Rock on, go big or go home, hit the ground running, hang in there kitty... don't eat the yellow snow...

    Wait a second. I had a fever of over 103.0 when I was 12. So I had Ebola? The people at the hospital never said anything.

    Nigeria was declared free of Ebola.

    See: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-29685127

    You may be thinking of Sierra Leone, Liberia, or Guinea.

    "Ma'am, have you been to Africa in the past month?"
    "No"

    "Have you been in close contact with anyone who has been in Africa in the past month"
    "No"

    "Well, the good news is you don't have Ebola....The bad news is you have the flu."

    But, But I know it's Ebola....

    There is someone in my office that says he doesn't shake hands because of Ebola. What makes it funny is he is serious about it.

    Yep, I shake hands; but, it is nasty and filthy. Why can't we just nod?
