    Michelle, thanks for sharing this information. I knew they were toxic, but not having any myself, did not realize just how toxic.

    Hope you heal quickly and get better real soon.

    Some guy here in the D.C. area poured boiling water on LR to kill off some Zoas. He inhaled the vapor and spent days on a lung machine in the hospital.

    She had some other serious health problems (unrelated to the zoa thing). I have messaged her in the past year, but never heard back. I'm hoping for the best for her -- I hope she just got really busy living her life and didn't have enough time for us anymore :).

    Crazy! Who would have thought a zoa could land you in the ER or ICU?
