One of the anti-vax arguments points to the drop in other deaths after measles vaccines were introduced. They use it as an argument that it wasn't that the vaccine prevented measles, it's that health care was getting better in general.

Needless to say, they're wrong. That's a factor, but not a major one. And now there's evidence that we might understand what was really happening. It looks like measles doesn't just suppress the immune system, it may cause your body to forget how to fight other diseases for several years after you get it. Stop measles, and you prevent a spate of secondary infectious diseases in the following years.

Google calendar shared my Dr apt with a random stranger....someone not even on my contact list when I put the apt on my calendar from my phone. Very strange. She was nice enough to let me know. We happen to share the same first name. Guess the universe is confused!

My blog, such as it is. I hope to update more often and include nursing content. For now it is really a mom journal but I enjoy recording our milestones there.
