And I live in California. I had no idea. I wonder how we coped. I must be forgetting that I social-distanced, didn't get a haircut for four months, and wore a face mask all the time.
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.
