I'm checking in to let GOADies know that Mark Douches (long-time GOADie from the days of the WW boards) tested positive for COVID about a week ago. He's in ICU at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ. His oxygen levels are very low so he's on high-flow oxygen (no ventilator yet) and IV antibiotics since he's also dehydrated. He's going to be started on a study drug and they're hoping it's the right one.

Please keep Mark and his family in your thoughts.

    Pete texted with Mark's wife. Here's today's update ...

    All, just heard from Mark Douches’ wife, Maryellen. He was put on a respirator last night with the hopes it’s for a short duration. He and his doctor spoke to Maryellen before the procedure.

    So sorry, the news is not good. Mark passed into His Saviors arms today. Pete posted this on Mark's fb page ..

    😢❤️🙏

    My dear friend I will always remember you in my thoughts and prayers.
    Give our Lord a hug for me and ask Him to pour His graces upon my poor soul.
    I will also pray for your wife and son and family’s comfort in the days ahead.

    Until we meet around the Throne of grace again, I will miss you! 😢😢❤️🙏

    So sorry to hear this. I can't think of the old GOAD "neighborhood" without thinking of him.
    He joined shortly after I did.

    RIP Mark.

    What a shame. I am sorry to hear this, and condolences to his family and those who knew him. I remember that unique avatar picture he had at the beginning of his joining GOAD. It was so unusual and I am still not sure what to make of it!
