LA Woman Hospitalized With Bubonic Plague

And just when you think it can't get any worse out there, we get the plague.

A woman was hospitalized earlier this month with bubonic plague, the first confirmed human case in Los Angeles County in more than two decades, health officials said Tuesday.

Sure why not. Everyone was worried about the fucking bird flu and BAM, the plague made a comeback.

The woman, who was not identified, was admitted April 13 with a fever, swollen lymph nodes and other symptoms. A blood test confirmed she had contracted the bacterial disease. The woman was placed on antibiotics and is in stable condition, officials said.

With my luck lately I'm just surprised this didn't happen to me.
