    Default Bad COVID news for a friend

    My friend Jody contracted COVID about three-four weeks ago. She spent a week in the hospital. Now, come to find out, her immune system is rejecting her pacemaker. This is really bad, Jody has major issues with cardiac arrhythmia's and in the 5 years I've known her, has spent several week-plus long stints in the hospital in the ICU. A significant part of that time has been in coma's, either natural or induced. So add "Immune system rejects pacemaker" to the lovely list of possible COVID issues.

    Jody is not that old...50's and a sweet person. This really sucks.

    Oh, Alan. What awful news.

    Prayers up for her, and those who care about her.

    Wow! The list of lasting problems grows longer all the time. This is a nasty bug. I'm genuinely sorry to hear this.

    I hope the doctors can figure out how to rebalance her system.

    It sucks watching a friend go through such a hideous trauma, but the best thing you can do is be there for her, even if it means on the other side of glass.

    Wishing her the best here. I'm afraid we are going to discover a wide array of complications and ugly repercussions from CV19.

    Damn! There are a lot of "after effects" of Covid that the deniers seem to ignore. Here's hoping they can figure it out for her.

    She's lucky to have a friend like you who cares.
