HARRUMPH!!!

The night before last, I woke up from the pain in the joints of the middle finger of my right hand. Weird! Nowhere else, just the middle finger's three joints. I rolled Lidocaine all over it, put on my arthritis glove, and went back to sleep. I can't believe one finger could hurt so much that it would pull me out of my sleep.

Just read that an ungodly number of Navy Sailors and the Marines have continued to refuse to get the COVID vaccine. I thought they were supposed to be trained to be tough....so, it can't be 'cause they're afraid of NEEDLES, can it? 

Worrisome. Seems kind of close to anarchy. Yeeks!

Get a grip and take your vaccine like a American.

I esp dislike it too when body aches & pains interfere with sleeping.

My feet are very sensitive. I wear my big stretched floppy red skid socks each night, but I can tell when my feet have been esp jiggling as usually just my left foot sock comes off. I just CANNOT go back to sleep with only 1 sock!!! And gout sometimes makes my right big toe ACHE. So out pokes my foot. I sleep in a recliner, so I haven't figured out how to remedy my feet! /// Don't know if it's the change in the weather, but I seem to be achy all-over. I even tried a roll-on. Results meh so far.

I was surprised that I was so sensitive to my lack of supplemental O2 at 2L thru my Cpap the other night. I turned on the Cpap Trilogy machine, but I forgot the concentrator. As I reclined, I immed felt the lack of the O2, yet the Cpap blows quite forcefully. Have pulmonary MD appt coming up.

Nannie goes through her Christmas cards multiple, MULTIPLE times a day, and each time insists on showing me the front and then haltingly reading what is inside, then asking me who the people are that have signed the cards, and wonders 'why are these people sending her cards,' when she doesn't even KNOW them? 

I dunno! Maybe it's a plot? 

HUMBUG!

Tell her - "it's people who remember her". So that's all that's important.

Well, yeh, that's what I always tell her....they remember her, even if she doesn't remember them; that's why they are sending her cards, to let her know she is still fondly thought of. 

It still doesn't stop me feeling kinda wacka-wacka when I see her reach over and pick up those cards AGAIN for the 8th time in an hour. My eyes want to roll and I do bite off the huge SIGH I want to expel loudly, but I am nice and I kindly explain.

Like water-torture: drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip-drip----------

After a while----------------------------I feel so exasperated!!!! It may not be her fault, because she can't help it, but OMG.

I hate it that medical costs are so high. Before I could get Medicare, that's the reason I so seldom went to the doctor for anything, if I could help it. At least, now I am on Medicare I can go to the Dr, when I NEED to instead of suffering. It isn't right that so many people can not afford to take care of themselves because of the $$$ issue!

The State in which I live just set another record for the highest # of new cases in one day: Twenty-eight thousand, Four-hundred seventy-four!

24 hours = 28,474 new cases, with a huge percentage composed of the unvaccinated.

....and "there's no room in the inn" ....

Hospitals are telling people to NOT come to the ER's for treatment for very mild cases, or asymptomatic Covid found only through a positive test and such, because they can be better off staying home and riding it out. You can't treat a person for symptoms that don't exist. It's blocking the flow of necessary admissions that are not related to Covid. 

smh. Pffftt!

I agree with the idea that the ER is not a testing center for those with mild symptoms.  Problem is getting an appoint to be tested is impossible and the non-appointment sites have lines for hours.  

I have to wonder at this point even with record setting numbers is it even higher because people aren't getting tested.  I know someone that had symptoms, along with her husband,  but didn't get tested and just rode it out at home and didn't go anywhere.  

I'm hoping it burns through us fast, but it's quite infectious and hitting so many people.

I intensely dislike that the time has flown once again and it is to late to expect my brain to make sense of the idea I was trying to set forth here in a simple manner, To whit:  in two labyrinthine, impossible to edit, or wrangle, nor re-write paragraphs. So I deleted it all away and left this disappointing, ineffective, mysterious non-explanation to fill the space.

Let us meditate to clear the peculiar atmosphere: Ohmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

For the Catholics among us: Dominic ripped his pants and Phyllis the dago sewed them for him, amen. (And if you can't figure that out, shame of you and back to catechism class for ye! Or whatever class teaches you to rewrite Latin as if you were Weird Al Jankovich.)

Enough. Shalom.
