    I'm sorry Tybee. Had you moved to Maine to be near him only to lose him?

    I'm sorry, Tybee.

    I do remember reading in the news not long ago that people still can catch COVID-19 after the first dose of the vaccine is injected. "Full" immunity is not reached until (for some vaccines) a second shot is given and some more time elapses. I would think that while the body is learning how to fight the virus imitator the margin it has to address other issues may be significantly lower than usual.

    Thank you, Steve, and Tradd. Tradd, we moved to be closer to him and my mother, who has advanced dementia, and we got to see him once he got the first shot, and then he died 9 days later. No one was allowed in to see him until the last week of his life. when we were allowed compassionate care visits.

    So glad you at least got to see him once. Sounds like he had been ill for a while.

    That is tough to have happen. Your mother has now gone into nursing home care for her dementia, hasn't she? That is a lot to happen in a short period of time.

    My sympathies, Tybee. We're never quite ready for this, even though we know it's inevitable.

    So sorry Tybee. I lost my dad last year, and my mother has dementia too, but so far able to manage with substantial help from her kids to stay in her house.
