Sorry for your loss Gampa - I didn't know that happened to you.
I don't know why its not screened for routinely here. I know its rare (my dr said its really really rare) but now I know of 2 people who have had a loss because of this horrible bug!
Fleur doesn't have a cat and she thought it was either from sand or eating dodgy meat. I have been very careful since she lost Harmony, and I really think we should be screened for it.
Yes, they do a lot of scare mongering too.. but i would rather know what could happen.
Again, so sorry for your loss.
