I've never felt or experienced an earthquake, but the prospect of being in a big one frightens me. It's in the back of my mind every time I'm in Los Angeles and San Francisco. I think about them when I'm in Seattle as well. The thought of having the surroundings around me collapse and then being stranded away from home in an unfamiliar place without any utilities or working infrastructure is quite unnerving to me.
I once saw a TV documentary where a man in CA claimed to predict earthquakes by reading the smallads and seeing how many pets had run away. Might be worth trying.
Sorry to hear about your son, Mindy. Something I was suprised to hear a few years ago was that only 7% of the healing arts are really empirical science. Most is based on "circumstantial evidence", i.e. "this usually works so the cause is probably....." When in doubt doctors often resort to "nonspecific" or in psychiatry "atypical", a word that's been attached to every diagnosis I've had.
Having said that,I do hope things work out for your son. Ask to be refered to Greg House :-D
