We talked with Pops via video chat, yesterday. He was in his room. They are trying to keep them all in their rooms but legally cannot force them to. Each room is a negative-pressure room like they have in ICU and some hospital rooms for infectious diseases. You have to \”gown up\” before entering. As we were on the chat, we saw one of the food staff, come in – NOT wearing a suit. Then she realized, she was on video chat, backed up, and then put on her gown. We know, she\’s a good person – but mishaps happen. It wouldn\’t have affected my FIL but if had it that\’s how it would spread throughout the facility. Fortunately, he doesn\’t have it.
My brother has Covid19 but so far, after more than a week, my sister-in-law does not. She has a lot of health concerns as well so I hope she stays healthy. When I was a kid, my whole family came down with the mumps. I was 10 years old. I had to take care of my family – cooking and cleaning and I never got it. To this day, I\’ve never had the mumps.
2012 HVAC Install
Thursday the HVAC guy came to do our semi-annual checkup and I asked him about whole-house purifiers, they mount on the HVAC system. We hope to be able to purchase one in the spring. It would be worth it as we get older and with all the fires. There is a waiting list but we try and pay everything in cash – so we have to wait till we know we can pay for it and not go into debt. I was surprised it is NOT as expensive as I thought. It\’s not going to keep us from viruses but from smoke, mold, mildew, pet dander, and skanky smells. I have a really good nose – too good. I smell smells that others can\’t. Literally, it would be a breath of fresh air, to have my home smelling fresh. Not that it stinks – but I smell things like dust and dirt while others can\’t. Drives me nuts!
