104-Year-Old Beats stage 4 Melanoma, Two Broken Hips, C. Diff, the Spanish Flu and Now CV19!

Yes, you read that right. Ida Acconciamessa has survived stage 4 melanoma, two broken hips, the Spanish Flu, C. Diff, and now CV19.

“We really didn’t think she was going to be able to pull through this,” her daughter, 77-year-old Barbara Senese, told CBS News. “She wasn’t even able to speak. She was lifeless. And now she’s eating. She’s talking.”

What did she say when she started talking? Interestingly enough it was, “Are you f%cking kidding me? Can someone please put me out of my misery already?

Ok, I am sorry. I made that up. That was wrong of me. The article said she was “very chatty”, so I was just speculating.

    Seems Governor Cuomo is “shocked” that most of the NY coronavirus patients were “at home”.

    Should anyone be shocked? A virus that is quite contagious, but usually causes minimal to no symptoms, but leaves others critically ill, mostly the elderly. A virus like that, the restrictions imposed will throttle the economy, but to the virus, it’s still a six-lane superhighway.
