  • Sorry to hear that, Atticus. Hope it is going well, and that you are continuing to practice good masking practices. And glad Mrs. Atticus was able to get the booster, too.

      Less than a week in, but It's going much better than we anticipated, so fingers crossed! Biggest snag - no drink tastes good!

      • This would be an excellent time to empty the cabinet of your cheaper bottles of whisky, then. Save the good stuff for when your taste buds are back on-line.

          That won't be an issue for him since he's a teetotaler. 🙂

          Take care Atticus.

          • Thanks for the correction, jazz. Change that comment to now being a good time to risk those "slightly past the date" fresh fruits, then.

                  I'm fine! 6 months of chemo is worth it to be safe.

                  • Vaccinated people dying of Covid have average age of 85 and five underlying illnesses

                    https://www.yahoo.com/news/covid-lik...162941902.html

                    It found the average age of death in the vaccinated was 85, and that on average each person had five underlying illnesses when they caught Covid. In contrast, the average age of death among the unvaccinated was 78, with those people having four pre-existing conditions on average.

                      • Another cautionary tale.

                        Ivermectin taken to prevent or treat COVID-19 led to toxic effects, including severe episodes of confusion, ataxia, seizures, and hypotension, a small observational study showed.
                        Of 21 callers to the Oregon Poison Center in August -- including 11 people who said they used ivermectin to prevent COVID-19 and 10 who used the drug to treat COVID symptoms -- six were hospitalized for toxic effects from ivermectin use, reported Robert Hendrickson, MD, of Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, and co-authors in the New England Journal of Medicine.
                        Four people were admitted to an ICU; none died. All hospitalized patients said they had taken ivermectin to prevent COVID, including three people who had obtained the drug by prescription.
                        Four hospitalized patients had gastrointestinal distress, three had confusion, two had ataxia and weakness, two had hypotension, and one had seizures.

                          Good luck with the treatments. I am over eight years and counting. I hope you join me.

                            Thanks. It's only been a week - six months seems like an eternity, but it sure beats the alternative possibility.
