He's holed up in a little motel 24 hours a day. No way to get off that island, certainly no way home. Luckily he left the outlying remote islands where he was doing research before they locked down everything there. At least he has the internet, etc.
    Oh and a Category 5 Cyclone just hit the area. Cyclone Harold. Last we heard, he's still safe from that.

    Hi everyone, just checking in to make sure you're all well.

    I'm OK. Spiked a fever last week and thought, here we go. Turned out to be some random stomach thing, but boy was I nervous.

    I've been taking my temperature upon waking up every day for the last three weeks. I'm not paranoid about catching it but I sure as hell don't want to repeat my ICU adventure from last year.

    If I get this I have very little confidence I would survive it. Where shall we start? I am overweight, diabetic, borderline hypertension, immune system weakened so not to reject kidney and the CMV I had in 2016 attacked the lungs badly to where I was on oxygen for over two months.

    I don't worry so much about my ability to survive this virus, but the husband has emphysema and is prone to pneumonia and it may not turn out well. I'd worry that I would pass something to him.

    If my dad had ended up getting his heart transplant we all would have had to wear a mask in the house for a year afterward. Now I'm wondering where the heck we would have gotten masks in the time of COVID-19.

    Stay safe.

    That's my worry too - my mom has COPD and other underlying conditions, and has been hospitalized for pneumonia before. She obsessively cleans the house now but there's only so much that can be done.

    Thanks. Basically we stay home. Anything arriving in a box stays in the garage for 24 hours

    Glad you are doing ok now. Allergies are horrible in the Northeast this year. I've had a sore throat off and on for the last couple of weeks. Everytime I sneeze, the kids mace me with Lysol ninja-style.

    I have to think there are other communities who have done something similar. Might be worth searching, if you're on Facebook.

    A bunch of restaurants around here are starting to do this. Governor recently passed an executive order allowing restaurants to sell stuff. Good to know if in a bind and grocery stores are sold out.

    The wife sent me out to pick-up a pizza the other day and I'll probably not be doing that again. I didn't see the kitchen staff wear gloves or masks. Several staff were huddled together. One guy was talking over the pizza to the next guy as he was making it. The cashier handed me a pen to sign my receipt. No thanks.

    I picked up some Thai food last night.

    The dining room is closed, so they had put placards on the tables: Grub Hub here, Uber Eats there, Door Dash over there, and Customer Pickup on the side. At the register, you'd insert your card without the employee touching it (and without you touching the device). Finally, they had two containers for pens: one marked 'disinfected' and the other marked 'used.' Employees in the kitchen were gloved and masked. Absolutely touch-free system. Plus, the food was delicious.

    We're doing take out once a week. Everything that comes home is taken out of its original packaging and either microwaved or put in the oven to kill any viruses that may have tagged along. Tipping is 30-50% depending on the size of the order. It's small risk but it's a lot smaller than the risk of those preparing food and dealing with customers.

    One of neighbors is a nurse at Yale New Haven and she hasn't been home in over a week. Talking to her husband he tells me the hospital is providing lodging for staff.

    There are a handful of hotels out here that are offering free hotel lodging for medical staff. None near me/my employer yet. Iíve been doing very strict decontamination when I get home. Hoping itís enough to not get anyone sick at my house.

    I went to Walmart last night, needed a few things. Dog and cat food and a few other things.

    I'm happy to report that the same wacky people are still in Walmart, they just have masks on now.

    I have a sister who I havenít talked to for about 3 years or so. She lives relatively close, and has ended up in my town for business many times, and I in hers, but we never even let each other know or talk. There was some family drama a few years ago, and she said some hurtful things about mom, so I intervened, and she blocked me and another sister from all her contacts and told me to never talk to her again, that I was dead to her. I just laughed, and moved on, and haven't even tried to talk to heR since then. I'm not mad at her at all, sheís been doing things like this since we were kids, itís just easier to ignore it and move on. Anyway, today she texted me out if the blue, asking me if I needed masks, because she has a pretty good stash (her son is immunocompromised), and offered to mail me some. We didnít talk at Christmas, for birthdays, at weddings, when she was having problems with the school system, or when mom was in the hospital. A pandemic hits, and suddenly all is forgotten. Funny how that works. We talked for an hour or so, then we had to go. It was good to just talk again, like kids.

    Thereís been a cat lingering around the neighborhood. We found her in the shed the other day and tried to close off whatever openings she got in. Saturday evening I started hearing loud high pitched meows coming from the shed. So I went in and checked and found 5 tiny kittens in an empty box in there. Idk what to do so I unblocked one of the openings so mom can get in and see her kittens. Iíll call around Monday for animal rescue, but my guess is that due to covid, I wonít get much help.
