One of my wife's brothers is battling Covid-19 in a NYC hospital. JW has lived a humble life but has always been an avid sports fan, going to watch the Giants in sub freezing weather. He is one of the most genuine people I have ever known. 

Right now, it does not look good. Please say a prayer for him.

Prayers for JW, as well as others on here that know someone going through the trials and tribulations of Covid.  It appears to be rather mild for the vast majority of young people, but for those who have existing medical conditions and for the elderly (and even for the occasional healthy youngster), it can be extremely damaging, if not fatal.   Again, prayers for all.

DarterBlue2, I wish your brother-in-law a speedy recovery, and I will say a prayer for him.

Prayers for you and your family. God speed. He will be ok, I’m sure of it.

Man it really hits people differently. My grandmother is 85 and has COVID after she got it in a rehab facility after having major shoulder surgery. She is now in a hospital COVID ward. I talk to her everyday and she is laughing and joking but annoyed she even has to be there. Tough woman who just wants to go home. 2 more days. 
 

hope your wife’s brother gets better.

 Man, I’m really sorry to hear that NB. I hope she feels well soon! Sounds like a very resilient, good-natured person. My Grandmother was the same way, very strong minded and a devoted, caring person. She loved to cook, and damn if I didn’t find out first hand!

I spoke to him today. No ventilator, at least not yet. Being treated with remdesivir. Tried to cheer him up. In 70 years of life this is his first time in hospital. 

That’s good to hear. I hope he feels better soon. I had a friend lose his mom to COVID. It’s horrible and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. God speed. :wub:

Glad she is doing well. Yes, it does affect different people differently. I am guessing this is due to both genetics, and physical condition. That's the chief reason I took the first shot of the vaccine this week even though I have reservations about it. I just have no idea how it would affect me, and I don't want to find out. 

I hope he gets better, too. He is a humble, simple, good guy. I don't want him to die this way. Yesterday, we talked about going to watch the Razor Ruddock vs Michael Dokes fight at MSG back in the late 1980s (or was it 1990). Action packed fight which ended in very scary fashion when Dokes was knocked out cold for what seemed like, forever.

So, some guardedly good news on my brother in law. He has been transferred to a rehab facility after testing thrice negative for the virus. While sick, he did suffer a mini-stroke. Hence, the rehab. But as of today, the worst may have passed. 

When he completes the rehab, he has a standing invitation to come down to Central Florida for a month or two to complete his healing.
