Prayers appreciated

5 posts in this topic

This young woman provided day care for our daughter for about a year. Very very nice young lady. I am sure any thoughts and prayers for her and her family would be greatly appreciated.

A 25-year-old Fargo woman died Wednesday of bacterial meningitis, and authorities Thursday were notifying people who had contact with her to take antibiotics as a precaution, including the youths who attend the child-care center where she worked.

The woman – identified as Erin Mae Bye by Gilbertson Funeral Home of Devils Lake, N.D. – went to the emergency room at Fargo’s Innovis Health on Wednesday complaining of a rash, vomiting and a high fever, Fargo Cass Public Health officials said.

Treatment with antibiotics was attempted, but she died a short while later of an overwhelming illness, said Roberto Patron, a specialist in infectious disease at Innovis.

Patron said the situation is cause for concern but not panic, stating it is rare for people who carry the bacteria to become ill and even rarer for people to die from the disease.

Health officials have notified Here We Grow Child Care Center in Fargo of Bye’s death and are advising employees and parents to contact their doctors to obtain antibiotics.

Nancy Bangsund, director of the center, said letters are going out to the approximately 150 families served by the center and parents were being notified in person when they show up at the center.

Bangsund said she believed all of the families will have been notified by this morning.

Health officials said Bye went camping with a group of about half a dozen people during last weekend’s WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn.

Those who came into close contact with Bye are being warned to take antibiotics as a precaution, said Dr. John Baird, health officer with Fargo Cass County Public Health.

Officials said the bacteria are typically spread through contact with nose or throat secretions, such as sharing a drinking glass or kissing a person who carries the contagion.

North Dakota State Epidemiologist Kirby Kruger said cases of meningococcal meningitis are rare in the state, with his office seeing between one and eight cases a year.

Officials said they don’t know how or when Bye contracted the disease.

She started showing symptoms a few days before her death, Baird said.

In many cases, symptoms begin to show up one to 10 days after exposure, officials said. In addition to the symptoms Bye displayed when she went to the emergency room, signs of meningitis can include a sore neck, leading to confusion, and in extreme cases seizures.

Baird said anyone concerned about whether they have been exposed to the disease should contact their physician.

There will be a memorial service for Bye at 2 p.m. Saturday at the home of her parents – Bob and Joyce Bye –in rural Devils Lake.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
