My mom was in her last illness at this time in Escondido, CA. Her last stay in a hospital was at Palomar Hospital right before the flu struck. She didn’t have the flu, she had 99 1/2 years and was pretty much shutting down. Within a few weeks there we tents outside for all of the flu patients. Masks were required to visit her in rehab and at the board and care home where she died.
Sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. It’s always hard, even when they are nearly 100.
My last uncle passed last year at 99-1/2 years. He was an amazing man. As a new engineer, he was assigned to run an isotope separation line at Oak Ridge, TN on the Manhattan project. Went on to be a fantastic orthodontist.
