Covid and death

In the last eight months our family has lost two family members to Covid there was one last July an Aunt who was 77 years old and this past week an uncle who was 88 years old. One of them lived in a nursing home and one lived at home.

Everyone needs to take notice of the warnings to avoid large get-togethers it’s not worth the risk of someone’s life.

If people can not have funerals then there should be no parties of any kind no birthday, no holiday, no wedding or baby showers.

Stay home when you can do not go shopping there is honestly no need when we have curbside pickups and home delivery is available on most everything.

DO NOT GO OUT TO EAT! Pick up food and take it home. We have heard about several people who have gone out to eat and gotten COVID. The reason for this is face masks are not on when eating out.

Everyone needs to pay attention to what they are doing and get the shot as soon as you can.

My mother n law is 92 years old and has not gotten the shot yet around here when they post they are taking appointments by the time you see it they are booked. She has had 3 ER visits in the last 6 weeks and one hospitalization but none were for Covid. As far as I am concerned all patients over the age of 80 should have already been able to get the vaccine.

I am waiting for my vaccine due to being high risk so far no luck in finding it.

I had my cardiologist appointment today Friday, February 5, 2021, he told me something interesting. For those who are on the fence about getting the vaccine keep this in mind.

If you get COVID all our DNA is different so this allows the virus to mutate which makes more strains of the virus and some of the strains are worse than the 1st one. Everyone, please think about this and get your vaccine that way all of our lives can get back to normal again soon.

Be careful, wash your hands often and wear your face mask. I was always OCD about washing my hands so that has never been an issue for me now I just triple wash a bit extreme yes I know but better safe than sorry.

  1. This is so sad. I’m very very sorry that you have had two deaths in your family from Covid. I agree, no one should be letting their guard down now. I wish it were easier to get the vaccine…definitely your MIL should have already gotten it!!

    1. The guidelines for the vaccine should have done the elderly with the healthcare workers. My husband got his invite from the hospital he is getting his first vaccine on Sunday. I am still waiting for my invite to get mine but I am 60 and high risk not 65+. Thanks Dawn.

  2. I’m sorry for your loss. I do hope that your mother-in-law can get the vaccine soon! My parents are in their 80s and got their first shots about 2 weeks ago. You are right, we all need to be very careful, and continue to be careful even as the number of people vaccinated goes up.

    1. Jack gets his tomorrow I am still waiting to get my invite to get the shot. Glad your parents were able to get their shot. They say the 2nd dose has more side effects.
