Does anyone know of someone who has the virus?
I don\’t know anyone personally. My nephew who lives in Arkansas told me his father-in-law has tested positive. He said, he was talking to him on the phone one day, and he seemed fine and the next day he\’s on a ventilator!
Last evening on our local news they reported 2 employees at the Ca Veterans Home where Navy works and my father-in-law lives, has tested positive. I\’m not a fearful person, but I can tell you I felt the blood drain from my body! I called my son, and he was very encouraging and I felt better. It\’s still too close for comfort but he assured me they are doing all that they can – he said they have plenty of PPE\’s and so far none of the elderly residents have tested positive. One person was a part-time employee that was last there on March 15 and self-isolated. The other left work on March 26. He said he did not come into any contact with them and only 1 resident came into contact with the later one. They have isolated him and have opened up a section, of beds, just in case.
The stupid news outlets couldn\’t wait till the Home contacted the families, even though they said they would. They are a business that is trying to get the jump on other news outlets but this was not a good thing to receive from TV news. 15 minutes after I got off the phone with my son, the Home called and gave us the details. This morning we had an email from the Cal Vet Administration.
I am so sick of friends, who keep sending me crap news stories. Like, this one showed a line of military transport vehicles crossing an overpass in Oroville, Ca. Everybody thinking something is happening. Little do they know, that there is an army depot base, near there and they are constantly moving vehicles. There is NOTHING TO SEE there. It\’s a non-story. Then my friend sent me a flyer that said, Homeland Security is mobilizing the National Guard for a complete national shutdown. FALSE.
Then, of course, I get the End Times stuff. Totally annoying. I do not believe this is the end. I do not believe anyone living is the Anti-Christ and I do not believe that Bill Gates ID2020 is the \”mark of the beast.\”
I didn\’t sleep as well last night, due to the news from the Home but I\’m feeling better about it because I choose to. I have to make a conscious effort, to ignore the crazies.
I do much better, watching star trek and I\’ve been doing a little more baking – taking walks, sitting outside in the sun, watching the birds, etc. Today, I placed a Walmart order for some Aloe Vera gel (that I cannot find anywhere) Tylenol, Men\’s vitamins, and my husband\’s Glucosamine Chondroitin. My store was all out of those items. They should be here by the 4th. I don\’t want to go anywhere during these next 2 weeks. I\’ll order what I need and have it delivered. Walmart is also doing curbside delivery where all I have to do, is set the appointed time for curbside pickup. They\’ll do the shopping. I don\’t usually go to Walmart for my groceries but my own store isn\’t offering this. We both may have to reorder medications within a couple of weeks.
Stay safe and healthy, my friends. Most of all, Stay Sane!
