Anyway, the real reason I'm posting is to give everyone a reality check on the Covid 19 situation. It's pretty easy to pretend it doesn't exist in our insular world, but I've learned it really is a big problem.
I may not have told you that my mom, in her memory care facility in Bend, tested positive about two weeks ago after an employee brought the virus into the facility. Mind you, they've been meticulous in keeping everyone out. I have not seen my mom in person since early March when they closed the place up tight!
Well my mom got sick with Covid 19 about a week ago. She was in the hospital for two days and is now back at the facility being cared for by hospice. I am not sure if hospice is there to offer extra help or to make her comfortable while she passes away. I keep getting different answers. She was given experimental drugs, and maybe they will work. But a 92 yr old probably doesn't have a great chance of ultimately surviving this nasty virus.
So I'm reminding everyone to wear your masks, wash your hands, stay out of crowded places, take care of yourselves.
Much love to you all
ps: I had a birthday in all this earlier this week but didn't really feel like celebrating. 70 yrs old is not an age I ever envisioned myself! Happy to be healthy and enjoying every day of my life! ;-)
