RESCUED from the Court of the Covid Kings by three large and amazingly strong Christian Soldiers. A very near thing. Legs, back, and eye still very weak. Made it home where I will heal and grow stronger. Very hard at present but will get better.

God bless all of you. More later this is still difficult.

    Oh, thank God you’re still here. Rest and be well, kind sir.

    A wondrous gift on the feast of the Epiphany. I will keep up
    the prayers for strength. God bless, Gerard. Take many naps.
    Don’t worry about us. We can wait.

  • Ginny January 6, 2023, 8:13 AM

    Thank heavens! Many prayers for your continued healing. Rest up well, dear Gerard.

    Upright is upright.
    Very good to hear from you brotherman.
    Cheers and let me know how to help.

  • Karen January 6, 2023, 8:45 AM

    I am so relieved for you and Olive that you’re back home. -Karen-

  • pgt beauregard January 6, 2023, 8:57 AM

    Great to hear the news Gerard.

    I got hit with a bout of it mid December.
    Progress might be slow, but you WILL recover.
    Crazy as it sounds, chicken soup.

    I’m proud of you and happy you’re home, G. Thanks for teasing the story – I’d be happy with even the briefest of updates and I want you to rest.

    You are missed Gerard! Prayers and good wishes headed your way…

  • Connie Victor January 6, 2023, 9:18 AM

    So glad to hear you made it out okay. Prayers for a speedy recovery.

  • Rob De Witt January 6, 2023, 10:17 AM

    God bless, you and Olive both.

    Thanks for the update and feel better soon, Gerard. Glad you got out of whatever ‘rehab’ institution you were stuck in temporarily.

  • Auntie Analogue January 6, 2023, 12:26 PM

    Easy does it now. One step at a time. Please do not push it on my account. (!)

  • My two cents January 6, 2023, 12:54 PM

    I had major surgery in 2007 and was living alone. I had to hire a caretaker for about a week because I was barely mobile and very weak. There must be services which would help only in the daytime if desired. Here is one website with some info:
    https://www.passagescenter.org/ (very close to GVDL) (non-profit)

    Search “Home Assistance for Older Adults” or similar.

    I did not get into paid services (for lack of time right now), but I would be glad to contribute to any agency that would show up daily (or almost) to help him function for a few weeks. (?)
    Meals on Wheels?
    If this were something he wanted, it seems it could be arranged. Facts about cost (if any) etc.
    Unfortunately, it is Friday afternoon, so arrangements would probably have to wait until Mon.

    • ghostsniper January 8, 2023, 6:18 PM

      Thanks for the links you provided. I’m going to file them for potential future reference. We ain’t getting any younger ya know.

  • The Force January 6, 2023, 12:55 PM

    Stronger you have grown.

  • SteveS January 6, 2023, 1:37 PM

    You’ve got this Gerard. May the Lord continue to bless your progress.

  • Flappr January 6, 2023, 1:48 PM

    Very happy to hear you’re back home. Praying for your speedy recovery.

    Much love.

  • Jason January 6, 2023, 1:50 PM

    So glad to hear that you are home and recuperating!

  • Lauren January 6, 2023, 2:15 PM

    Prayin’ for ya!!

  • captflee January 6, 2023, 2:49 PM

    That you escaped rehab so quickly I shall take as a good sign, oh hep cat of many lives…

  • Nori January 6, 2023, 2:53 PM

    Really is no place like home;welcome back. The look on Olive’s face says she greeted you with purrs or Where Have You Been? Can never be sure with cats.
    Rest is best,lots of it. Chicken bone broth is great,nutritious and satisfying when you’re just too tired to chew.
    Prayers will continue,even after health improves. This bug-ass crazy world needs you in it.

  • ThisIsNotNutella January 6, 2023, 3:36 PM

    Good you’ve escaped from the charnel house and are now safe at home with some good-hearted private citizens on your case to boot. Lots of rest and good nutrition called for, but you definitely want to be trying to get up and about as much as you can. Loss of mobility can take you out insidiously and more surely than a wet market load of covid bugs and the local chapter of Antifa partying on Walpurgisnacht.

    Hang in there and maintain some of the rage about what you’ve been through (grace is all very well, but…). We want to know what happened when you’re more OK and your report will certainly save others from straying too close to the edge of the pit.

  • Anonymous January 6, 2023, 3:53 PM

    How was the chick action?

  • The Universal Spectator January 6, 2023, 4:00 PM

    God takes care of his own. Get better soon.

  • John Fisher January 6, 2023, 4:05 PM

    Rest and get well. All else can wait.

  • pbird January 6, 2023, 4:15 PM

    Delighted to hear you are safely home. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the story.

  • LP January 6, 2023, 4:18 PM

    Prayers and good wishes, so glad that your ok!

  • MikeyB January 6, 2023, 5:03 PM

    Happy to read you are home and upright. Sucks being old as healing takes longer. (I’m an old fart, so I know!)

  • Hale Adams January 6, 2023, 5:46 PM

    Hi, Gerard,

    This good news (you being out of the hospital) is one of the better birthday gifts I have received in my 61 years. (Eeeep!)

    Get well soon!

    Glad you’re back. Get well soon and carry on. Cat maintenance never sleeps.

  • Kerry January 6, 2023, 6:26 PM

    You’ll make it through, just be patient with and good to yourself. If somehow you can get direct sunlight on yourself for 10-15 minutes a day, you’ll be doing yourself a big favor. Supplements and good, wholesome food, even if it’s in small servings, will help, too. D3, zinc picolinate, quercetin and C. I have every confidence in your recovery.

  • Bill in Tennessee January 6, 2023, 6:54 PM

    Thank the Lord you’re back. Take care of yourself, Gerard, the world needs you.

  • The Count January 6, 2023, 6:57 PM

    Blessings to you Gerard. I don’t comment much but have been reading you for what-nearly 20 years now? You are dear to me and have frequently redeemed this internet for me. Rest up, you remain in my prayers.

  • Kristin January 6, 2023, 9:21 PM

    Gerard, Home is best. Surrounded by Olive and books.
    Take it easy, get strong and feel better every day.
    You are in my prayers.

  • Free Tamara Lich, jail Turdeau. January 7, 2023, 2:18 AM

    Surround yourself with positive people, it will help.

    Blessed. Praying you never took any of the jabs. I work in Covidville. See several per day test POS. Most have the flu or crud.

  • waitingForTheStorm January 7, 2023, 4:49 AM

    Rest, sir, and relax. This is the best way. Apparently, age greatly reduces the ability of the body to recuperate and regenerate. Who would have thunk it?

    Prayers for your recovery and better health.

  • Goosewings January 7, 2023, 6:35 AM

    Wishing you a complete recovery, Gerard, and a much better 2023. One step at a time at your own pace, one day at a time, and repeat. You are missed and much appreciated by many.

  • Hoss January 7, 2023, 6:53 AM

    Good news that you are home Gerard. I will pray for your continued recovery and please, just take it easy.

  • Hyland January 7, 2023, 7:04 AM

    Worst cough I’d ever had… back in January 2020… three months before planet Earth was ordered to shut down. I thought my lungs were going to break up be ejected in one final fit. That was probably the coof. I never got tested. Sure is good news to hear you’re back under the safety of your own roof, Gerard. Here’s a news item proving once again that ol’ karma is truly a bitch. The Israelis hate the Palestinians so much they deprived them of the sacred vaxx… hoping they’d all die. Israel is possibly the most vaxxed population in the world. The cosmic order of everything has turned a 180 for these people. https://voxday.net/

  • CA January 7, 2023, 7:32 AM

    Pureblood here. Had it twice (no test; antibodies present six months later) in ’22 – one light, one heavier. Missed even the splitting headache many report; credit the pony paste [ https://www.barnhardt.biz/ivermectin/ ] + Vit C/zinc/vit D/quercetin Zelenko protocol [https://vladimirzelenkomd.com/treatment-protocol/].

    Also bookmark the FLCCC site and treatment protocols at https://covid19criticalcare.com/ and https://covid19criticalcare.com/treatment-protocols/.

    Fatigue was the big picture symptom and lingering after-effect. Still need a nap some days when regular sleep was jangled. Sleep is medicine; take it in large doses.

    Sleep and rest. Let others help you. Chicken soup is never a bad idea.

    Do not hesitate to ask. A whole bunch of good folks love you and will help.

    • John Venlet January 7, 2023, 8:18 AM

      All sound advice, CA, especially the sleep and rest admonition, as those are prime in healing one’s body.

    • StopShouting January 7, 2023, 6:42 PM

      Please max out daily doses of NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) and supplemental Vitamin D, in addition to the FLCCC protocols that CA recommends. My only proviso is do not take Vitamin C + Zinc together – space them apart about 2 hrs, minimum. Always take Zinc with Quercetin and food if possible.

      NAC is a precursor to glutathione, considered the “master oxidant”. Oral formulations of glutathione are usually only about 30% bioactive, you get bigger bang for the buck by taking NAC instead, since cysteine is a rate limiting amino acid of glutathione to allow your body to manufacture what it needs.

      Continued prayers for your healing and complete recovery.

      • Terry January 8, 2023, 5:13 PM

        NIH publication??? Taking any recommendation from a dot gov medical site seems like a fools choice to me. Those are the people trying to poison us. Excuse me, not trying to poison us but actually doing so.

  • K2 January 7, 2023, 11:50 AM

    Dear Mr. VanderLeun, please rest and God bless your recovery. The possible loss of your voice, describing your vision of the world I grew up in (as well as Clownworld today) was just too much to contemplate…. Please allow those willing to help you heal up. Yes on that Real Chicken Soup.

  • Daniel K Day January 7, 2023, 2:34 PM

    I’m very glad to see you back at home, Gerard. I’ll continue praying for your complete recovery.

  • Stephanie January 7, 2023, 2:42 PM

    Get all better, very soon! <3

  • scsi January 7, 2023, 3:25 PM

    Glad you’re still kickin’
    And thanks for all your writing.

  • Joan of Argghh! January 7, 2023, 7:02 PM

    Dammit. I had no idea until just now. We’ve been in the States and came back to Mexico, caught COVID and although we feel strong now, the damn sinuses don’t want to dry out. Certainly praying for you, Gerard.

  • Aesop January 7, 2023, 11:52 PM

    Glad you’re back home. It’s been a rough few years for you. Best wishes for your continued recovery.

  • Callmelennie January 8, 2023, 5:15 AM

    Even in some of your more dire moments, you still maintain your sense of humor. Anyone who has ever owned a cat know what entitled little @ssh*les they can be. Look at the black cat trying to take ownership of Gerards walker. I see this every morning when I wake up and find Blake, my own black cat claiming my comfy chair and every morning I have to fight him for it. And every once in a while, I take a pic of it and send it to my kids with the text, “Blake’s being an @ssh*le again!!”

    If it comes down to needing a walker for the duration … That was my mother’s “fate” for 12 years. Yet she soldiered on with an almost uncanny cheerfulness all the way to the end in 2015, at age 93

  • Jack January 8, 2023, 7:05 AM

    We are all so thankful you have turned a corner or two toward recovery. Keep it up, there is no rush to get back here and we will all be waiting for you. Take your meds, take no chances.

  • theduchessofkitty January 8, 2023, 10:08 AM

    So happy you’re now home! Your kitty must be happy, too!

    Take it easy. You will need delivery of food and stuff for a while. Have you arranged for that yet? Do you need to set up a grocery “wish list” on Amazon or something online we can use to keep you going while you recover? Through the local grocery store? Do they have an online delivery system?

    Get some vitamins. 1000 mg/day of Vitamin C is great, along with zinc, d3 (5000 IU and above) and, sometimes, quercetin. I caught the virus twice last year: my (forcibly vaxxed) hubby brought it home to my girls and me last January. He was having a hard time with it. I only had the fever and chills, which I relieved with ibuprofen. Since I take supplements every day and have done so for many years, my symptoms were milder than hubby’s. The girls recovered quickly and returned to school in five days. We recovered almost at the same day.

    Then, last November, it happened again. Hubby was on business trip in the SF area. His entire company had a week long meeting there. Everyone there had to be vaxxed to keep working. Well, no one knew it, but the virus caught several trips back home, including to mine. He was miserable. I barely got a sniffle. All I knew was I needed a little NyQuil. That’s all. I still lived my life and no one else got it.

    That damned vaccine has done NOTHING for my husband.

    • Mike Austin January 9, 2023, 11:08 AM

      I have been taking such supplements for years. My last illness was a cold, and that was way back in the early 2000s. And I am a pureblood. I just cannot imagine getting sick anymore. Hit by a bus while on my bicycle, sure.

      • Snakepit Kansas January 9, 2023, 4:35 PM

        Heart disease, cancer or stray asteroid, something eventually gets us. I think I will have a glass of wine. A zinfandel I prefer.

        • ghostsniper January 9, 2023, 5:17 PM

          One glass of zinfandel always leads to another, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • Foo January 9, 2023, 6:21 AM

    Rest up, we got your back G.

  • Dirk January 9, 2023, 8:24 AM

    Outstanding news.
    Also pure blood the entire family locally is, sorry to sound like this but I read daily the nightmare called covid shots. I’m firmly convinced your malady was directly related to the shot/ shots.

    You need support, I’m happy to drive down assist as needed.


  • Hyland January 9, 2023, 8:49 AM

    Seeking lively observations in an up-to-date dose of reality?

    • ghostsniper January 9, 2023, 5:22 PM

      That’s what it’s going to take. Hot barrels shoved right up in peoples faces. They are so smug, they think that will never happen. I want to be on the front line, kicking doors in, planting hobnails in asses, breaking arms backwards, slamming faces on the floor. Reclaiming my birthright, along with 100,000 other like minded raging patriots.

  • Mike Austin January 9, 2023, 11:09 AM

    Take your time Gerard. Rest up and get better.

  • VW January 9, 2023, 8:05 PM

    Gerard, sending well wishes for a speedy recovery. It was so terrible to hear of your illness. Prayers for you daily. ❤️
