    I keep hearing people recommending the flu-shot just because
    they had the flu or it was widespread in their region or they
    knew people who had it.

    That is unscientific.

    Better rely on the statistics , which also involves all the other
    millions of people.

    Local doc recovering from H1N1 says get the flu shot



    A Lufkin family is slowly recovering from devastating illnesses that have taken over their lives since the new year began.

    Dr. Christopher Gill, a cardiologist, was diagnosed with H1N1 and remained in a medically induced coma for weeks at Methodist Hospital in Houston. Dr. Gill?s 19-year-old daughter, Rebecca, stayed by her father?s side during the critical weeks of treatment and rehabilitation. Her siblings, Alex and Monica, stayed in Lufkin with their mother, Mariela, who suffered a heart attack two days after Dr. Gill fell ill.

    While a Lufkin doctor, diagnosed with H1N1, remains in a medically induced coma at Methodist Hospital in Houston, his 19-year-old daughter is furiously working to spread word of the family?s needs and to encourage the public to get a flu vaccination.

    Rebecca Gill, whose father is Dr. Christopher Gill, a cardiologist at the Heart Institute of East Texas, said the experience for her family which included her mother, Mariela, also being hospitalized with the flu and subsequently suffering a heart attack, began the day after Christmas.

    ?He was making his rounds and became nauseous,? Gill said. ?He went to the emergency room and they told him they thought he had an upper respiratory infection and sent him home with an antibiotic. My mom began to get sick the next day after caring for him.?

    "?I was talking to a nurse at the door of his hospital room when I looked over at him and I saw his eyes open,? she said. ?I said, ?Hi, Daddy,? and he mouthed my name.?

    Gill said her father has not yet spoken, but is responding to verbal commands, making facial expressions and body movements.

    Both Gill and her mother, Mariela, displayed flu-like symptoms early in her dad?s illness, but her mother suffered a heart attack just days after her father became critical.

    ?This has left my dad totally helpless. They tell me it will take months for him to recover, and he was a strong, healthy man.?'
