I was at a wedding a few weeks ago. Everyone had to test and show their results. Everyone tested clean. The 5 out of 8 people at my table came down with it, plus the bride and groom.

I just found out yesterday. I was a bit punky for a few days but it passed and I wrote it off to a hangover. God knows how many people I might have passed it to.

He cannot be under treatment. He can however have as many doctors as he needs.

I just had to have the same talk with my uncle. He was already in palliative care. I spoke with his Dr. and then gave Uncle the hospice talk. He's way happier now. His pain is managed, he has an aide daily, a nurse weekly and has gone from being a lump in a chair to being able to walk 5 city blocks.

He has prostate cancer that has metastasized to his spine.

Good luck. It isn't an easy conversation to have.

My uncle gave a shitload of $$ to HSS. Even got a radiology suite named after him and my other uncle. Great hospital, beyond predatory in their fundraising. They groomed him like Epstein groomed a teenager.

Have you tried hand-feeding her? It could take about 3 days of her not eating so be prepared.

As someone who is currently running a safety recall for a car company, how did she miss the mailings? If its a government safety program, Hyundai has to report contact status to NHTSA. If anything, she needs to find out the type of attempted contact. If it was a certified letter, then she's probably SOL. If it was a basic post card or letter she might have a chance.

How many mailings did they try? We send mailings every month, plus phone calls if we have a valid phone number.
