I've prayed about it. I certainly am one of the most critical of elderly gents, but I will forego this vaccination. I have less than a third-capacity of air in my lungs at all times. I fear the second stage just might do me in. I will remain at home, with exception of visits to my doctors, and then will request virtual appointments. This decision doesn't come easily. I recognize the danger, but I feel much more comfort having God in charge than a needle loaded with "maybe so".
I pray that my decision is a wise one. And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
