There’s not a single thing that I need to do at the office that I can’t do at home. Now that we’ve fully switched to an electronic signature system, you never even have to print and get a real signature on anything again, something you’d think would’ve been eliminated years ago. 

For any important contract agreements that require multiple signatures, we've been using Docusign, which is an incredible tool.  If it's just a letter from on one our department heads, we'll add the signature in the Word file and then PDF it before sending it off.  Either way, it's completely do-able.  In Docusign, you can even have a document notarized.

Yeah we’ve used that at work too, and I’ve even used it for some personal stuff involving refinancing my house and other things. It’s great.

My father-in-law tested positive 2 days ago and was admitted to the hospital today with breathing issues. He is in his 70s and has a history of heart issues, so this isn't good.

In all seriousness, best of wishes.  I hope your wife's handling it well.  

Had he been vaccinated?

I'm assuming Hospitals in NYC aren't allowing Positives or PUI"s to have visitors? Are you guy able to get daily updates from the RN?

Nope.  Refused to get it.  I just heard from my wife that he actually did not go to the hospital.  The last I heard my mother-in-law was taking him there, but I guess he refused that too.  Instead he decided to take a shower and lie down.  That's just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

They're in Arizona.  So I posted about our trip to Vegas to look at investment properties.  Our in-laws were supposed to meet us there and babysit.  Well that's all been shot to shit.  I'm honestly pissed off and it's upsetting my wife, but he never took any precautions and now he's really fucked everything up for all of us.  So we fly to Vegas on Tuesday with non-refundable tickets with a 4-year old who was looking forward to hanging out with his grandparents, and instead we'll be trying to do all this real estate shit with him and then at night just hanging out at the hotel.  And my wife is being very fatalistic and is convinced we'll be going to his funeral instead of doing any of the stuff we had planned.  I'm really fucking pissed actually.  He's got everyone worried sick, ruined our business trip/vacation, and now he won't even go to the hospital and he could wind up dying in bed and leaving my mother-in-law to deal with finding the body.

If possible see if your mother in law can go and get a cheap pulse oximeter from a drugstore or medical supply store. What you need to watch for is if his Oygen sats start dropping under 88. If he starts dropping into low 80s or 70s he needs to go to hospital asap.

OK I'll let her know.  Thanks.

Damn.  Sending good thoughts.  Kind of a shitty situation to put the family in, after everything that's happened over the past 14 months to come down with this NOW after the vax is available and things are starting to open up.

Both of my in-laws are on the way to the hospital now. My mother-in-law finally called an ambulance and she's clearly got it too (although not officially tested) so they made her go too. My mother-in-law was at 84 oxygen level when they came, and she's the one who supposedly was healthy.  So now my wife is trying to deal with some sort of care for the dogs from 3,000 miles away while they're gone, and is tracking down vet records and shit so someone can come take them to a kennel. What a fucking mess.

Thanks. Father-in-law is in the ICU with afib (rapid heart beat) in addition to his breathing problems. Mother-in-law is in a regular hospital room.

Both feeling a little better today. Father-in-law is supposedly doing very well and they’re hopeful he can be released in a week, but no promises. Still in ICU for now. Mother-in-law still in a regular room and might be released on Tuesday.
