With the pandemic situation slowing improving, I thought I would look at taking a trip to my vacation home soon. I have not been able to travel there much lately because of travel restrictions that have been in place for almost a year now. This morning I sent a message to a guy I know who lives in that area to see how he’s doing. He has had some respiratory problems the past few years and has been very careful during this time since he is definitely at high risk. He has so far avoided contracting the virus. He responded to my message to let me know his lungs have deteriorated now to the point that he will be evaluated next month at a mainland hospital that specializes in lung transplants. If he qualifies, he will be there for 3 to 4 months (surgery and rehab). If he doesn’t qualify for a transplant, he will just come home. I hope only the best for him. We met through one of the online sites. We get along well together when we have had the opportunity to meet, and we have maintained contact in between. I’m not shocked at this news, but I am sad. He is one of those all around good guys who I am attracted to on multiple levels. I just want to post this since I don’t really have anyone to share this with here at home.
