UPDATE: My 93-year-old father is very close to death from congestive heart failure.

Thank you to this virtual family/friend group. My father died this morning. He was under hospice care at my brother’s home and died at home as he wanted to. We had access to medication and professional advice to help him with anxiety, pain, and other issues.

Thank you so much.

Original post:

I’m here with him and my brother. It’s been a horrible few days for him. Please send prayers and good vibes for a peaceful passage.

This has been so hard to witness.

Didn't the Senate Republicans block election security bills?

If only they could have done something before this election to make themselves feel better about election security.

Jackass Republican Congressman Mullen on NBC

is “both-sides”-ing the insurrection today. They’ve never seen this from Trump supporters, he insists! There were antagonists amongst them.

Good God.

I wonder if the Republicans who didn't flinch when

school children were ambushed and killed in schools now have an inkling of how terrifying it is for children to have drills for “sheltering in place” as they hunker down for protection? Or how it feels to survive such an attack?

A New Use for an Old Drug: UVA Researchers Discover Potential COVID-19 Treatment

CHARLOTTESVILLE – Before COVID-19 ever hit America’s radar, a professor at the University of Virginia discovered a way to treat it. It’s not a treatment in the sense that the drug prevents or stops the novel coronavirus. However, it lessens the symptoms if a person contracts the virus.

Professor Alban Gaultier, of UVA’s Department of Neuroscience and its Center for Brain Immunology, partnered with former UVA graduate student Dorian Rosen. Together, the pair discovered a link between fluvoxamine, an antidepressant, and sepsis, when the immune system creates too many inflammatory molecules.

The professor and student discovered that the antidepressant reduced cytokine production. That discovery, made last year, struck a chord with Washington University researches studying the coronavirus.

The Washington University School of Medicine team in St. Louis, Missouri, studied whether or not administering the antidepressant could prevent serious complications with COVID, thought to occur from cytokine storms. They displayed impressive findings after a small clinical trial.

Imagine what this life-changing moment feels like for two people, one man

and one woman, as they prepare to become the President and Vice President.

I particularly think of Senator Harris - what a heady, phenomenal adventure!

If Trump resigns and Pence takes over for a few months, is Pence 46 and then

Biden is 47th President of the United States?

This made me smile: Festivus for the Rest of Us

If Biden pulls this out, I guess Pat Robertson's gonna have to tell God

He was wrong.

This just popped up on Twitter: Dr. Al Gross, I-AK seems to think he may win

his Senate race. Does anyone have more info on this? ETA, he won the Democratic primary - I assume he'd caucus with Democrats? Sorry, I'm ignorant.
