  1. Dad went into hospice 10 days ago. In the last 6 weeks he fell, hit his head, had a brain bleed, followed a day later with cardiac arrest. A pacemaker soon followed.

Biggest issue was the loss of internal systems that were needed to mitigate / fix everything. https://blog.cloudflare.com/october-2021-facebook-outage/
