    The scariest part to me is that she lives in Utah, but was out in California when she tested positive. After testing positive she was able to hop on a plane and fly home. I’m not going anywhere near a plane until this whole thing is done with.

    Third wave of corona.
    I was at at my nephew's yesterday with his family who was all at a party last weekend where folks got really sick with covid.
    And my nephew's wife was sick and coughing all over me while we watched the dodgers win.
    We didn't hang for the previous game and the dodgers lost. Same thing happened the night we didn't watch the Lakers game together.
    So we made the decision for the dodgers sake.
    If we die, we die.

    The gooder news is that your mom got to see her friend before she passed.
    I'm sure she never gonna forget that.

    Think of it as the flu and think of yourself as just coming off an upper respiratory infection and what you would do in that situation.
    What would you do in terms of being careful. You don't need to do more than that.
    Actually that probably depends on your upbringing.
    So don't do what you normally do if what you normally do is shut all the windows and blast the heat and take pills to stave off the immuno reaction to some infectious matter getting into your system.
    I have been taking cold showers exclusively for a bit now as its something that I can do now without much effort (lets see in december)
    And have kept the windows open letting drafts in at night to allow the old air to leave and new air to come in.
    Lots more dust.
    Dust carries a variety of pathogens collected from nature and the population at large.
    We are genetically made up of the dust that is nurtured in the nature around us.
    We breathe and eat and shed and exhale this dust that is all sorts of living DNA.
    You can see the different shaped dust particles when the sun shines brightly into your living room through the prism of your window.
    If you focus your eye you can make out the different microscopic bacteria looking organisms floating around.
    Just like when you focus a telescope on a star its not just a ball of light but a unique shape that that moves and pulsates at a beat that creates the solid light our eyes perceive.
    The corona is just another one of these specs of dust.
    But it is part of a massive host.
    Corona could be like a big bad wolf coming to blow your house down and eat your babies.
    Wouldnt it be better to have a pack of coyotes in your backyard defending your front porch?
    Which is to say not to be soo afraid that you isolate yourself from the only thing that can actually save you in the long run.
    Hiding/Scared only saves you for a day.
    If you want to live you have kill the wolf.
    And for that you have to be bigger and badder.
    And hit him at his den before he enters you at yours.
    But you can't even begin to think about finding out where he lives until you stop thinking of yourself as the prey.
    You have to prey just to make it today.
    And its best to prey in packs.
    If you your prey to hear your call.

    Sorry for your loss, Mouse.

    Just to pile on the anecdotal evidence of how strange this thing is, my mom who lives with us and is 83 years old with pretty much every pre-existing condition there is tested positive for the 'rona twice early this month. She never got sick and tested negative twice about a week later. My wife and I never got sick, even though we were both constantly in close contact with her.

    Suppose it could have been a false positive (twice???), or three very lucky people that avoided getting sick.

    Yes, sorry for your loss.
    No discernible end to this thing.
    The close friend that I mentioned when it all first started who passed ? Well his widow now has lost her kid brother, 58 years old to COVID. A deacon and kid with a kind heart.
    I hope she doesn't go off the deep end.
    I went to bereavement counselling for a long time, and people who are inundated with tragedy one after another sometimes lose their grip.
    I've known a few it happened to, unfortunately.
