Jon’s Story

Site created on August 16, 2019

Hi everyone! As you probably know I'm more than a little bit of an introvert, and I'm terrible at keeping in touch with even my best friends who I love. I'm sorry I can't update everyone personally with every bit of news or need for assistance, but hopefully the journal will keep you looped in!

If you're in Seattle and have the time and ability to assist, please consider joining the TeamLasser Slack (

Journal entry by Jon Lasser

No, I don't have COVID-19 so far as I know, and I plan to keep it that way as long as I can.

For a week and a half now I've been working from home and left the house only for a massage appointment, a single grocery store visit (a task since then falling to Laura or our many friends), and walks where I've steered clear of anyone besides my own family. I'm continuing to hit my daily step count goal--today should make 33 days on my current streak, the longest since a 44-day streak back in July and August of 2018, long before I felt sick at all.

At this point, my visit for a CT scan with Dr Santana will be delayed a bit while we wait to see what shakes out in the health care system. (I'm also delaying a haircut and an already-overdue eye exam, and considering whether I should cancel my PT appointment this week.)

I'll update here when I know more.
