Surprise letter in the mail

Jan 5, 2009

Today I opened a letter that came in yesterday. I didn't open it yesterday so it ended up sitting on my coffee table for 1 day. Today (the next day the letter came in) i opened it and noticed blood on the env envelope. if the mail lady, or whomever bled on it, had HIV, would there be a risk? I think it was dried blood, but not sure. I already sent a donation for this question. you really help us all out so much. thank you in advance :) love ya!

Response from Dr. Frascino


The HIV-acquisition risk would be completely nonexistent.

Love you too babe.

Dr. Bob

The nurse made me scare to be with my hubby.
