The sun is shining today, which is a nice change. It does lift my spirits a bit. These are strange times. My state is thinking about banning take out food, which I think is a good idea. Too many people congregating in front of restaurants, which defeats the whole purpose of closing them. We have a lot of Covid cases, but thankfully, a lower proportion of deaths than other states with fewer cases. Nursing homes have been hit hard. I've become a hermit. I only leave my house to take walks. I feel safe inside my house. I'm very fortunate that I can work from home. I do feel for those who can't, and pry that they will be safe.. Last night I was in a Google hangout meeting with former co-workers, 2 of whom are recovering from Covid. One had traveled to the UK at the beginning of March, and the other is a home care nurse who did not have proper PPE. Thankfully, both are on the mend, but say it has been the worst illness of their lives. 2 others on the call work for the VA, in non-clinical roles. Both have been assigned to the float pool, starting today. Neither of them have worked the floor in over 5 years.
Joe-I think it's very normal to feel more anxiety in these times. It's good that you were able to do your church service by Zoom. It's helps to stay connected and not feel isolated.
Ted-Nice composition. You are very talented.
Stars-How are you today? I hope DH is doing better, and doing his best to stay off the cigarettes. I think of you every day and hope something can ease your situation.
J22-How is DS doing? It's hard to get news about genetic conditions. Hope you and fam are doing well otherwise.
Hi to Herring, Dianah, Tweety, Amo, Rose, and everyone else. Please take care.
