I have been speaking to my daughter, a junior at Sandra Day O'Connor every day as usual. Since she started back to school after Christmas break, I have noticed a cough that is getting progressively worse. She told he about the smoke and the fire and it was hard for me to imagine such a thing, until I looked this up on the internet and read the information.
I am a Registered Nurse in Level One Trauma Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. We are also the regional burn center. Smoke inhalation injuries are deceptive. A person can not have a single burn mark on their body, but if you look inside their lungs with a bronchoscope, one can see swelling, redness and soot. My concern is the proximity of the school to the fire and the short term, and long term consequences of the exposure to the smoke.
My daughter had mild asthma as a small child, but this recent smoke exposure has caused her to have coughing, wheezing and congestion. I am concerned not only for her, but for all the other kids in that school.
Wouldn't it be a wise choice to keep the kids home until this is resolved and then send them back? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Thanks, and Good Luck in overcoming this brush fire!
