    What a story you will have to tell. To be, or have been, on a ventilator, is a harrowing experience. You may be conscious but are totally under the control of your care givers. You have a tube in your throat and you have no means of communication except, maybe body language; thrashing and eye movement, maybe. You will probably be ‘restrained’, that is, have your wrists tied to the bed rails so that you don’t do what is natural , which is to pull that damnable tube out of your throat. Bravo, Jim, that your breathing was such that you have been liberated from this awful, and yet life-giving, experience…

    We both wish you speedy recovery and was pleased with tonight’s news. From the news we get it seems this virus is extremely contagious and hard to escape when, like Jim, you have a leadership role.
