Swine Flu Claims the Life of an American: 33 year old mother from TX

Even though folks are telling you not to believe the hype, Swine Flu is real and it has claimed the life of an American-- a 33 yr. old school teacher, from Texas, who just gave birth to a newborn!

This week should have been a joyous time for Judy Trunnell, a 33-year-old schoolteacher who had just given birth to a healthy baby girl.

But the friends and relatives whose cars lined the quiet street in front of her home in a quiet subdivision Tuesday instead were mourning her, the first American with swine flu to die.

“We’re grieving now,” said a woman with tear-streaked eyes who declined to give her name.

In Maryland, her cousin told WMAR-TV in Baltimore that Trunnell had died after spending two weeks in the hospital. She slipped into a coma, and her baby was delivered by Cesarean section, Mario Zamora said.

Ish is real, cover your mouths, wash your hands, and stay home if you suspect you are experiencing flu like symptoms
