Can we all just behave and try to get Omicron under control? Because the next strain is probably Pi and we all know how long that will go on.

When we extubated my brother, knowing he would die, we brought in his dog, put the dog on the bed, and after Jimmy was extubated, the dog licked his lips. My brother sat up for a second, smiled, and died

A massive volcanic eruption has occurred on Tonga Island of Tonga. This event is extremely dangerous for those on and near the area closest to the eruption. A tsunami has been generated that we are closely monitoring as it crosses the Pacific.
Infrared Satellite Imagery shows how clear skies were fast replaced by the giant #eruption cloud over #Tonga in the past couple hours.

Local surgeon—with decades of experience, in very high demand (>12-month waitlist), very physically fit (long-distance runner)—gets a mild case of Covid (never hospitalized), then abruptly retires due to persistent fatigue. Another face of "mild" Covid.

Today will be the hardest day of my life. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

Surviving severe COVID comes at a cost. My wife survived COVID, but isn't unscathed. She has to consult an orthopedist due damage to her shoulder from proning. She'll be on anticoagulants likely for the rest of her life. Basic things are a struggle: 1/

The mornings are hard. Middle of day comes in waves. Mostly bad. Nighttime is hard. I miss getting a text from him right now. Me answering. Him saying he’s too tired to respond. Me saying, “Then why’d you text me so early?”
