Feb 11, 2001 we flew back from weeks in Texas. Linda soon became severely ill. Depth of [sounds from] her lung affliction scared the S out of me. Had fingers on the phone for 911 if needed. She eventually got through the thick of it. Then it was my turn. That "cuddly-covie" is tough crap to go through!

We're both vaccinated. She three times. Me - 12/6 I get my booster. Plan to not get the BIG 19 again!!

I am three times Moderna vaccinated, and have not gotten Covid.

But i still take precautions. No mask unless required and enforced, but I am extremely dilligent about surface risks.

I feel for everyone that catches it, and especially for those that made the hard choice to protect themselves and got it anyway.

My mom passed away last Monday due to Covid. She was 101 and had been vaccinated 2 times but had not been able to get a booster. She fell in July and broke her femur into 12 pieces. She was in a nursing home recovering from the broken leg when she had breakthrough Corona. We really miss her.

Condolences... very sorry to hear that.

In few minutes we go to pickup our 98 yr matriarch. Many in family are gathering at a "closed for holiday" restaurant... going to have a T-Day feast. Our senior gal broke her femur a few years ago. Needs a walker always since. She remains fairly independent, living 1.5 miles away in house she and family purchased 1950. She has lots of attendants/helpers come by often to keep things in line. Several of us in family stop by often to also help out.

Happy Thanks Giving! To America!!

Thank you all. She lived with us for 15 years. She never once complained about anything we did for her. My wife of 50 years, Sandy, was incredibly good to her. Our dog, Radar, misses her a lot. They were best friends. When she was in the nursing home he would take her the newspaper just like he did at home.

So sorry for your loss. She sounds like an amazing lady.

Our condolences on your mom's passing. It is certainly a tough and challenging time.
I'm sure over time you and your wife will look back and feel good about the time you had together and things you could do to make her life more enjoyable. Caring for our elders is one of those things that is both challenging and rewarding.
Don

These past few weeks have been both a blessing and a sadness- but time is healing the hurt.

Such great wisdom has been offered here, and I appreciate all embracing Dave as he goes thru the loss process.

Best to you all.

We've lost no employees to death by Covid, but we've had several employees who lost multiple relatives. The nearest experiences I was really familiar with before were when multiple family members were in an auto accident. I know your family suffered greatly and I hope people in general are aware of the suffering that has transpired. Yet, there seem to be many oblivious to it. Unfortunately some have been until it hit them. Those who have had major symptoms can't really describe them except to say it's the worst thing they've ever experienced.

I'm happy for your recovery and sad for the loss you and others suffered. One of my goals in life is to die of "natural causes" and yet that goal seems to become more elusive as the years pass.

Remember there’s four things to worry about.

Infected, mildly ill but a vector to others.
Long term residual complaints.
Severely ill but survive.
Death.

To date vaccinated folks have much better numbers for all these parameters than unvaccinated. Concern remains that given less than 1/4 of the world is vaccinated and the virus is also being seen in animals such as deer not just in SE Asian fauna a continuing reservoir for evolution of the virus exists.

The new Botwanian variant of concern which maybe more resistant to any B cell/antibody manipulation currently available as the latest example. Hopefully enhancement of T cell function by current vaccine will be sufficient until the biology is better understood. It’s tragic how much suffering this illness has produced. We’ve been a dollar short and a day late. We all need to do better. Due to age inspite of being triple vaccinated remain at risk so remain vigilant.
