Sat Mar 25 at Lamb decided what was important was her voice. The family went around the room saying what they wanted Fuller to hear. At around a. Five minutes later, nearly 16 hours since the vigil began, Fuller passed. A minute drive away, Becky Lawler struggled to sleep. About a week prior, on her last Zoom call with her father, year-old Frank Smith, who served in the Coast Guard at Normandy, Lawler had seen his condition was worsening.
He struggled to catch his breath. Now, she had been told he had very little time left. Like Lamb, Lawler also declined the option of a compassionate-care visit — she worried about infecting her thenyear-old mother, who lives with her and mostly stays in a hospital bed in the living room, and was at risk herself.
She held his arm; on his pillow, she placed her phone, which played a video of his wife telling stories about their past together.
At that night — Lawler made a point to look at the clock — she received a call from her niece. In four days, Fort Hudson had lost five residents — five members of their family, three in about 14 hours. A year-old woman nearing hospice, whose bowling feats had often appeared in the local paper, had died after Fuller and before Smith. More and more residents grew ill, as those in Lounges 3 and 4 began to join those in Lounges 1 and 2 in their exhaustion.
Some would rest in their beds for days, nearly unresponsive. If her residents did not want to drink, Barber put cups to their lips or gave them Jell-O or ice cream. She would rouse them, make sure they took a lap around the loop, created some semblance of the routines they normally thrived on.
She recalls that when she arrived at work one day, earlier in the outbreak, two patients were on oxygen; by the end of the day, 17 were. Residents would rip out devices designed to hydrate them, not knowing what they were for. Saunders noticed that some form of internal unrest led the sickest to strip off their clothing; an acquaintance whose brother had tested positive described it to her as a sort of effervescence, a bubbling in the arms and chest. Fort Hudson adapted to new instructions.
Government directives would arrive on weekends or during off-hours, sometimes requiring immediate attention and action though often with unclear or incomplete information, Cruikshank says. He felt their authors lacked expertise. And they do not accept the extraordinary risks that nursing homes present with this particular virus. On May 2, S Wing lost its sixth resident, an year-old man who had been an antique-car enthusiast and achieved his dream of owning a bar.
Caregivers came back off-hours to sit beside patients who were nearing the end. In one instance, after working all day with a declining resident, two staffers decided they would both go home, take a shower, get some new clothes and some fresh coffee, then return and suit up in the sweltering PPE to be with a longtime resident in her final moments. They sat practically in bed with her, stroking her hair, as her family joined on Zoom, together laughing and crying.
The caregivers had experienced the deaths of residents many times before. It was part of the job. But not at this rate. These family members had often first cared for their loved one in their homes as his or her dementia grew, before finally trusting and turning to Fort Hudson.
Many often visited S Wing, offering companionship to the caregivers, even into the night, for years. The staff considered them family, too. The staff ached for the day when they could. She took to drawing hearts on the boxes, hoping to send the message, Hey, I remember your family member. We love you. Five years before, Mattison had lost both her parents in four days, and she used the lessons she learned then to try to help her coworkers.
She sought to speak with everyone every morning to see how they were. Many staff members lost weight. They vented in regular meetings. Barber would step outside the unit to cry. Weeks into the outbreak, some S Wing residents began getting better. These improvements could be misleading, however.
COVID aside, while some dementia patients may lose their cognition earlier on in their final stages than other elderly patients, they can also experience sudden moments of lucidity right before the end, Quaresima says. Michelle Cerro seemed to be among those getting better. Staff told her daughter, Dr. And now that Cerro was chatty, singing, and active, Cerro-Conlon told her father what seemed like good news. June would bring their 58th wedding anniversary. The next day, Cerro was unresponsive.
She tried to soothe her mother however she could, running her fingers through her hair. Around in the morning on May 12, two weeks shy of her 79th birthday, Cerro died. She was the last resident of S Wing to succumb to the coronavirus. Tatis joined his father's roster and was a revelation. Senior beamed every night writing Junior's name on the lineup card.
In one late-season game with playoff implications, Junior stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning with runners on first and second and the score tied at 3. His father called for him to bunt. Tatis twice failed to lay it down. Facing an count, he swung at the next pitch. As he left the batter's box, Tatis unleashed a two-handed granny-style bat flip into the cosmos.
The ball soared over the left-field fence. Estrellas advanced to the best-of-nine championship series, won it in six games and did for San Pedro what the Cubs had done for Chicago and the Red Sox for Boston. The city emptied into the streets. An wheeler hauled Estrellas players into the sea of revelers. No one wanted the celebration to end.
In the middle of it were Tatis Sr. And it was a great, great feeling for me. I've never seen so many happy people. It was just a celebration. It's standard operating procedure for the best prospects, a spirit-of-the-law manipulation that delays free agency by a year.
That was in When the Padres told Tatis he had made the team out of spring traininghis first call was to Maria. In his debut, he stroked two hits. On April Fools' Day, he homered for the first time. By the end of April, he was ranked in the top 10 in position-player WAR and had a game hitting streak under his belt before he stretched on defense for an out -- rare is the man Tatis' size who can do the splits -- and wound up on the injured list.
After he returned in June, seemingly every day offered something new and amazing, the oeuvre of Tatis revealing itself in the moment. Rather than dive back to first, Tatis started to run. Tree (3) - Try Harder Every Day (CD) he slid, his top half contorted in such a way to avoid Soroka's tag.
He was safe. By then, supercuts of Tatis highlights already were dotting YouTube. The parabolic home runs to left, the tee shots to center, the pokes to right. Tatis' spray chart, with half of his home runs up the middle, is like a Rorschach inkblot where the proper answer is "great hitter. Tatis leapt, snagged the ball at its peak, spun degrees and returned to earth with it.
One day later, after a swing, Tatis' back locked up with a stress reaction. He missed the rest of the regular season but still finished third in Rookie of the Year voting.
Back home, he didn't play for Estrellas -- and his father didn't spend nearly as much time with the team either. In November, after Estrellas started the seasonTatis Sr. Junior was livid. He tapped a fiery Instagram post saying Estrellas could trade him. Fans in San Pedro offered their feelings in a subtler, more biting fashion.
They returned to the streets -- this time in protest with lit candles. For the Tatis dynasty, they held Tree (3) - Try Harder Every Day (CD) vigil. It was real, all this power they had. Bebo used it for his family, for his city, for his country, for the Padres. Now comes the natural evolution, albeit amid the sort of circumstances he never could have envisioned. The season is for his entire sport too.
You know, this game has been here for so long and now we're a part of it. We've got to be responsible to keep it at the same level or bring it to a higher level. I think that's going to be the key for us, for this game. Fernando Tatis Jr. The hours alone in his apartment this spring gave Tatis time to think -- about his game and so much else.
People are dying. The coronavirus isn't going anywhere. He missed his family. He FaceTimes with his mom every day and his dad nearly as often. It also gave Tatis time to think about his place in baseball. Dynastic aspirations tend to do that. Lately, he has said he would love to stay in San Diego and get a statue like Tony Gwynn.
When the Padres shut down spring training, a number of Tatis' teammates waited to see whether he was going back to the Dominican Republic before booking tickets home. When Tatis decamped to San Diego instead, they joined. All the time Tatis spent fixing his foibles paid off. After committing 18 errors last year, most of them on routine plays, Tatis came around to the idea that every play need not be flashy.
He could take the proper angles. Use more feet, less arm. He has zero errors through 16 games this season, Tree (3) - Try Harder Every Day (CD). Perhaps that says as Tree (3) - Try Harder Every Day (CD) about who Fernando Tatis Jr. It took a pandemic and an increasingly monitored set of protocols to keep him from unleashing new sets of choreographed handshakes to celebrate his and the Padres' triumphs.
And even constrained -- or as constrained as he can get -- Tatis still manages to make antiseptic, fake-noise-infused, empty-stadium baseball feel urgent. Two weeks into this strange season, Tatis is at the plate. He's downthat same count as with Estrellas, this time against Ross Striplingthe starter for the Los Angeles Dodgerswhom the Padres and everyone else are chasing in the National League.
Stripling throws a high fastball. Tatis is hunting it. As the ball flies off the barrel at mph, Tatis doesn't even bother flipping his bat. He just lets it go, and it twirls in august fashion before touching the ground. By then, Tatis is walking out of the batter's box. Not running. Not jogging. He walks, because he can and because a home run like this -- feet, seemingly still climbing when it clangs in the empty stadium, accompanied by a perfect TV play-by-play call: "To the moon!
Except Tatis isn't even looking at the ball.
