How is THIS Pandemic effecting you?
Vehicle of Interest:
Ambulance from 1918 Pandemic
For today (Sunday):
UPDATE: Cousin Eddie (with the Corona-virus) is not improving, still in an induced coma and vented. His wife gave permission today to try an experiment with an injection for e-boli. Prayers please.
We are blessed and very fortunate. This is an inconvenience to us more than a tragic thing. BUT to our families and those of you who are/were working a 40 hour week I can imagine it can devastate.
I can definitely remember when missing a day without pay would be tough for us. Son Jack is in the courier business and is spending much of his time moving medical traffic from hospitals to labs. Evidently a fever is a bad sign; his temp it taken at every hospital and lab before he is allowed to enter.
The Grands are affected. School is out for at least two weeks. Granddaughter Sherece WAS beginning a new job this week, but was called and her reporting date set two week later. Since we were possibly exposed we are keeping a distance. Matt is working at home and Luke’s schedule is modified at the airport.
Haven’t heard how the music store in Knoxville is going for Stephen. The other twin, Joshua and wife Megan with are traveling and visiting. Not sure if he is working on the road or not.
Hoping all is well with the grands in Utah and Oregon. They are worried about us ‘old folk’ (but we don’t think we are old, or do we?). Let me tell you, OLD AGE is a confusing part of life. WE really don’t know we are old until something goes wrong, THEN WE KNOW IT but lie to ourselves a bit.
BUT the good news is SPRING has SPRUNG (AS TarryT said), and nature doesn’t know about a pandemic so she fills our world with blooms, buds, beauty, greenery and her sweet warm breath. The Feral, Ms Stormy D, is big as a barrel. She doesn’t know we have a serious problem; she is making some Tom happy. I told her HE will not be around to help feed the kids nor support them, she doesn’t seem to mind.
PS: Remember all our medical and support personnel who are subject to exposure to this horrible virus in prayer. They are our front line!
