I Hate Fresno (It's Hereditary)

Mr. Bluejeans Sr. is now in a different room at the hospital, one of the ones where they put you in a little isolation area with a room between you and the hall, and no one is allowed in without wearing a little surgical mask.

They don't know what is wrong with him, but the pneumonia's not clearing up.

The nurse who showed me in told me it might be TB, but they're doing cultures and checking.

My dad, when I got in to see him, told me they'd suggested valley fever to him.

Mr. Bluejeans Sr. was a child in rural Fresno. And he's been back from time to time since. So valley fever would not be out of the question. It would, however, make me very angry. My dad doesn't care for Fresno very much. If it made him sick, we're all going to be...irritated.

Have been reading up on valley fever. Making self nervous.

Mother still coughing a lot.

I'm hoping that they are giving him respitory therapy along with the drugs to take care of this. A speedy recovery to him.
