Re: Update

A peaceful death is a blessing. My thoughts are with you and your family. Sending encouragement to you at this time of grief, especially during a world wide high stress time. Hopefully you are able to go outside and appreciate the spring plants and weather (this has been helpful for me).

Peter Attia's COVID-19 webpage
