So glad to read your sister is doing better. It is very sobering to read of real-life experiences with this disease. Otherwise, things become very abstract, including the horrible hospitalization/death large numbers. The idiots that party while refusing to wear masks need to read these accounts.
Yes, Mel, I wish the maskless idiots had some basic understanding and/or thoughtfulness but alas. Clock's story reminded me of what unfortunately happened to my step-mother. She was diagnosed with COVID a couple of days after her first shot. It supposedly was a "mild" case but she took a turn for the worse and died a week later despite some heroic efforts to save her. She was in a memory care facility and then in the hospital. She was 89 but, other than the memory issues, she was in excellent health. This disease is nothing to fool around with.
And now Spring Breakers partying hard and still a bunch of folks who refuse to be vaccinated. Sigh.
