I’m so sorry Whitewave. That’s much too young to die, and your son is far too young to be experiencing the death of a close friend. I hope the rest of the family fully recovers their health.

I feel ok putting their information on here because they had been so open about it— and with asking for prayers— they have thousands of friends because they are such a terrific family.

Actually, he was 19. I have asked a mod to change his age in the title. (I think his birthday was in August).

One thing I learned with this is that blood banks needs blood donations and for people like David who are on ECMO, they can take different parts of blood that are different blood types.

So if you can, please donate blood.

And thanks for all the condolences..... I’m just going to be sad and have a drink and be thankful for what I have in my life, and pray for those who have troubles in their lives.

Stupid pandemic.... we can’t even go to a funeral or celebration of life. I want to give his parents a hug.

I believe that was within this past week! It looked like he was going to turn a corner and he was breathing above the vent and then it all came crashing down.

I am so sorry. Such a tragedy for the family. A fine young man starting adult life, now gone.
THIS is what everyone has to understand.
it isnt “just a flu”, it doesn’t affect “only old people who haven’t got long to live anyway”, it doesn’t just kill “people with serious other health conditions”.
it kills babies.
it kills teenagers.
it kills young adults.
Stay home or when you can’t Wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands.

Every time you write about him, whitewave, his story gets more heartbreaking. I think every little bit of information that you share fleshes David out. He is a beautiful boy on the outside and I would bet anything that he was a beautiful boy on the inside and is beautiful in spirit.I love the verse that the family chose for him. I will certainly be praying for him, although in my belief system he no longer needs my prayers, and for his family and friends. You and your family will be at the top of my list for thoughts and prayers, dear whitewave. You have been through way too much and I am very sorry.

Hugs,
Deb
