Too bad you missed my post telling his story...


He turned 78 in August. He was very healthy, fit, NEVER obese, active, watched his diet, never smoked anything and rarely drank, except for a good red wine he would go up and buy at a fave winery in the Central Coast. The last time I talked to him he said he was digging up some old concrete that needed to be replaced. He golfed once a week, sometimes more. The only thing was he had a pace maker for Afib. But his heart didn't fail, he contracted covid pneumonia and that's what took him down. Even with all the meds available and a few experimental drugs.

The covid got him and wrapped itself around him and even though he walked into the hospital, he expected he would walk out and go home again. He never thought he would die and that included all of us, his family.

He was not in your numbers of "high risk". You could be just like him whether you believe it or not.
