This entry is about second chances. Chris is an anti-vaxxer. He caught COVID back in the spring of 2021, and his condition was so severe that he's been trying to recover ever since. He still has a trache for oxygen and is confined to a wheelchair. This is going to be a long, arduous journey, but his wife, Crystal, is a Nurse Practitioner, which helps as she can pitch in on taking care of him and helping him with his rehabilitation.This is one of those life lessons you learn from and grow from. Let's check in on Chris and see where he's been and where he is going. I strongly advise going through each post below sequentially and not skipping anything. Life is precious.
The videos in this story are required viewing. Skipping them will ruin the whole thing for you. :)
Let's start this story back in January 21, when Chris was a fire-spitting anti-vaxxer:
Oh, I forgot to mention:
Like all of these people it's about freedumb:
Be glad I'm not offering a badge to watch this mess of a video:
Or this one...
Well, he got COVID. Not sure exactly when -- maybe March 2021. In any event, he was on the ECMO in April 2021:
They raised funds to help with his recovery:
Instead of posting a bunch of screenshots of his condition, here is a local news story on Chris from June 7, 2021. This is required viewing!
And 3 months later, on September 22, the same news organization did a follow up story. Also required viewing!
Since then, Crystal has been posting his progress throughout his recovery and rehab.
He had a recurrence of pneumonia in November:
Crystal was so proud of Chris and the progress he was making in rehab that she posted some videos. Here is one of those videos (required viewing):
Since he's he's starting to move around a bit, he can go back to enjoying posting on Facebook again.
Awwww, he's feeling sentimental because he has to miss Christmas this year:
Awwww, the sweet memories. Nothing like a close shave with death to get you reflecting on your past memories:
Awwww, and then he posts,..wait, WHAT!!!???
Oh no!!! Has someone hacked his Facebook account? This can't be!!!
HE'S STILL ANTI-VAXX!! Oh crap.
And he gets COVID again!!!
He's fighting COVID again...
Now Crystal has COVID and her son Tyler probably does, also:
She doesn't understand why this happened AGAIN. (I can't even...I just can't.)
He's getting antibody treatment, but this is probably Omicron and it won't help much:
Doctors must be suffering from sunk cost fallacy
I told you this story was about second chances. COVID gets a second chance.
We'll keep an eye on this and update when things change.
Till then...Get better...AGAIN, Chris.
PLEASE DON'T POST ON CHRIS'S FB PAGE BECAUSE WE WANT UPDATES FROM THEM.
NOTE: Won't be able to post again until Sunday as I'll be on the road tomorrow (Saturday, Jan 29).
