Annette in SoCal said:Daughter came down with Covid last week
So sorry to hear this, Annette - keeping everything crossed for a good outcome. I bet Ms D is delighted to have you there!
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Morning all: Things look to be improving with daughter; they will now try to wean her little by little off the oxygen to see if she can maintain good blood levels; she's hasn't had to use the BiPAP machine for the last 48 hours. Thanks all for good wishes! One nice thing was that Ms. D and I went to the feed store yesterday to get supplements for the horses. The guy there knows daughter and we made a video of him waving Hi to her and telling her she was included in his family's prayers. Then the other night, grandson 'walked' her around outside this house while on Facetime so she could see the fabulous sunset. These little things really perk her up. Today we'll do the same so she can see how clean we're keeping the horses corrals. Oh my, the paths we walk with our children.....
Clare: Yes, Ms. D was happy to see me but now that this isn't just a fun visit, she's realizing that I can be quite strict when it comes to hanging up clothes, doing chores without procrastinating or acting like she didn't hear me, not interrupting, etc. etc. Still, she's a well behaved kid so no problems. She's doing online learning and we're keeping up with the schoolwork. She's due to go back to school on Monday. We both got tested 'just in case,' mine was negative and we're still waiting for her results so both wearing masks around the house for now. Frankly, I'm horrified at the number of people in this state that still don't seem to take it seriously.....
OG: No, daughter has history of various issues and was reluctant to get the shot based on something her neurologist said. I'm not sure if that's really the case or if there was a misunderstanding. Regardless, It's not something I'm bringing up at this point because being upset after the fact doesn't help. Then again, she's in Arizona where there seems to be a high level of cluelessness/arrogance on the topic....
I've read everyone's posts but hope you'll forgive me for not responding.... Take care all.
LINDY - I'm sorry to read that. Can't find the right words but just sending condolences x
Lindybird: Oh dear. So so very sorry to hear about your bro What a shock..... A;nd yes, awful for the girls who only recently lost their Mom. I seem to remember that you weren't that close, but still..... Huge hugs from here.
OG: RIght now I'm suffering through (for Ms D's sake!) the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade from New York. Incredibly noisy and full of phony hyped-up hosts. Arghhhh. I may be forced to go clean corrals!
