Good morning!

BC, glad the BIL is feeling better and hope the treatment goes well.  

Ted, sorry that covid is throwing a glitch in Easter.  Glad that Amy is back at work after such a long time.  Too bad the new job didn't work out.   But sometimes you have to try something new to find out it isn't what you want.

Stars, sorry about the swollen leg.

Amo, hope the heartburn is better.  

Dinah, that is interesting the two pronunciations of "route".  English is indeed a funny language.   

Florida had another 6,500 cases yesterday.  It's interesting to see people "optimistic" about the future while the surge is the same or worse than before.  I saw a FB live of a friend at a bar in Michigan and it was crowded with people, a few wearing masks, but most not and they were having fun, dancing and drinking.  She's vaccinated so I guess she feels good about it, but they were mostly young people that I bet weren't vaccinated.  I think the problem is that with the vaccination people think it's over when it's still only a small number of people vaccinated.  I've noticed hospitalizations in my organization have risen.  It's the young people driving the steady number of cases, and they think even asymptomatic children are the real spreaders.  Hard to believe we've been dealing with this a year already.

It's a Florida-chilly 52 degrees this morning.  They are predicting this is the last of the "cold" weather until next fall.  Fine with me.

I had a nice day alone, but was a bit too lazy.  Got stuff done though and released I was ready with good healthy meals for the work days but not for dinner last night and ran and got some ramen.  It was good.

Working today and tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a great day.

Morning Tweety, I hope the cases dont' climb too high there.  We're seeing an increase here too

Ted I can understand their uncertainty, being Easter but having a Covid case

Hi Dianah

BC I'm glad your BIL is doing better

NJ22 hope the reflux eases up

Another good day at work yesterday, was quite happy with that 

After  work went for a fairly long walk

Found out that we had the option of doing Good Friday service in person so I decided to go.  Very sparsely attended, only a dozen people total

Today will go out for coffee and my usual hike. When I come back I'll take the cat to the groomer.  Might do some choping in preparation for cooking tomorrow

We can go in person to the Easter Vigil services tonight, so I might go in person as long as it's not too long and all of the spots aren't take (we have a reservation system)   Will skip Svegoolie but will watch some Three Stooges prior to then, they're having some of the better, ealier episodes

Currently in the 40s but will get up to the 60s by the afternoon.  Another day of low humidity and strong winds, so we have a brushfire alert

Hi. My reflux seems to have calmed down considerably. I've been taking an OTC PPI and an H2 blocker, with Mylanta for "breakthrough burning". It flairs up perhaps once a year, but this latest bout was worse than usual. I had an extensive workup about 6 years ago and it didn't really show much other than esophagitis. I had a nice run this morning, then stopped to pick up a prescription and milk. There is a local dairy with their own retail stores near our home and the price is lower than the grocery store and it tastes much better. I picked up some of their kefir and plain Greek yogurt to try. This will be a gardening day, if the rain holds off. 

Stars, i hope your swelling has gone down. Prednisone is a heck of a drug that I have profound respect for. Powerful with some wicked side effects. 

BC, that is good news that BIL is feeling better. I am guessing providers are trying to boost his nutrition before prepping for the PET scan? My eldest ds had to have one, and you have to restrict carbs prior, and with his Type1 DM he got a little scared and was quite uncomfortable. 

Dianah, I now have Route 66 in my head as an ear worm. I always loved the version by Manhattan Transfer. 

 

Our COVID rates are continuing at a plateau; the local university has an ongoing outbreak, and the rate of hospital admissions are up slightly. dh had to work late last night as he is manning his warehouse that serves the 7 retail farm stores. He may need to drive the delivery truck next week. 

Ted, that is discouraging about your Easter service. If the weather was nice, an outdoor gathering would be nice, but I think your weather is so varied. 

Amo, how is your arm and your Fauci ouchie? My MIL got J&J and hardly even felt it. 

Best wishes to our dear herring.

Re J&J vax, I haven't really seen anyone complaining with any major side effects. Reading along here on AN, the Moderna vax seems most uncomfortable. I've just been tired early in the evening, twice.

I've been a big fan of Manhattan Transfer from waaay back.

Hello!

I spent the day giving jabs.  We had extra doses, as people seem to schedule at several locations and go to wherever they get the earliest appointment. We also get extra doses from carefully drawing up the vaccine.  Unfortunately, there's no real way to go on line or call to cancel the other appointments.  We had a waiting list, so we started calling people once we saw the no shows starting.  I vaccinated one man who said his father died of Covid 1 year and 1 day ago.  He was very emotional getting his vaccine.  I had tears in my eyes, too.  My 16 y.o. nephew was able to get vaccinated today.  He doesn't technically qualify until Monday, but we refuse to waste a single dose.

Dianah-The PET scanner is at the hospital's cancer center, which is in another town.  I hope he can get it this week.  The news may not be good, but at least he will know what he's facing.

Tweety-Sounds like you had a nice relaxing day off yesterday.  I hope this weekend goes well at work.

Joe-Enjoy the vigil tonight.  Is your cat long haired?  Do they mind going to the groomer?

J22-Glad the reflux is better.  I hope you got to spend some good time in your garden today.

Amo-I'm glad you didn't get any serious side effects.  I had Moderna and felt pretty crappy for 24 hours.  My DD also had Moderna and had a fever, chills, and body aches for about 36 hours.  You must be so happy to be vaccinated!

Stars-Hope the swelling is better today.

Ted-I hope you and Amy have a lovely day tomorrow.

Take care everyone!

She's a medium hair.  She does complain on the way there but doesn't fight me too much.  She likes being brushed so she enjoys at least some of the grooming

Good Evening -

This is gonna be a quick but warm hello. . . 

I'm at work. Unlike last night, work is "Q". Last night, I played the role of Mr. ER Nurse. The first several of hours in the ER was "Anti-Q". Having a very drunk and obnoxious 20-something year old didn't help matters. (At one point, he peed on my foot before I got the urinal where it belonged. That was not fun.) (He wasn't even my patient.) It was just a steady-busy. Finally, around 2:00 AM, it calmed down for the rest of the shift. (Having Mr. Drunk Guy discharged home helped matters significantly!) When I got home, I helped Amy edit her latest cooking video. Basically, I did the final edits, put original music to the video, then uploaded the video file to VIMEO. From there, Amy transferred the video onto her YouTube account. It came out good!

Regarding Easter Sunday. . . It's gonna be held outside. After work, I'll drive to the church and set-up the sound system outdoors. I might try to squeeze in a 1/2 hour nap before the outdoor service begins. Thankfully, I'm off from work Sunday and Monday nights. 

Nothing much else going on. Hope all are peacefully sleeping! 

Peace! 🙂

Ted
