  1. I've edited this thread because it went off when the words politically correct were used.

     

    The post that started it all gets it's point across more effectively without them.

     

    FYI, the definition

    Yes, I bet you're dying to see those new babies!   Thank goodness for today's technology, you can still see photos.

     

    I've not left my house in a month, other than to get groceries, and take daily walks.  I miss everyone, but am hopeful that my family all make it through unscathed.  I'm really irritated with all the protesting going on...  folks don't realize this will undoubtedly backfire and prolong our stay at home orders.     

    There is nothing like a new baby smell and the way newborns are still all folded up. It's like a drug holding them.  :)

     

    On the upside, they get their parents entirely to themselves and the parents will have plenty to do.

     

    Every birthday, every holiday, every missed bbq makes me sad. Can't shop together for that new dining room table and on and on and on.

     

    Sometimes, it gives me a very bad day but so far, I've rebounded after a good nights sleep.

     

    I guess I would understand the protestors if I felt like the governors and mayors were not being transparent with us.  I feel that they are.  I'm impressed with their leadership and awed by their responsibility for our health and well being and that of our families, our neighbors, our friends.

     

    I think most of us are doing the best we can do and some of us need to do better.

  3. People have been flocking to parks and trails.

     

    I find them unsafe these days and choose less traveled routes.

     

    People should also keep in mind that forcing the police to deal with you puts them at risk as well.

     

    Two babies born in my extended family this week.  I think the hardest thing of all is not being able to lay hands on those little ones.

     

    The more people voluntarily cooperate with stomping down on this virus, the sooner we'll be able to be connected to each other again. It is hard but, we are #InThisTogether

    I'm very scared right now. 

     

    My dizziness had gone down a bit with rest but my cough had been rough since early in am.

     

    I went to the restroom to spit up some mucus (hadn't spit up much) and started spitting up thick dark blood. It didn't hurt to spit it up but has happened twice now.

    Dan, I've heard of people having those symptoms.  You need to call the doctor or head to the ER.

    My colleague shared that telephone number with the rest of our staff so that we can share with clients who are having difficulty coping at this time. Many older adults are feeling isolated because they cannot go to senior centers and many have family out of state and friends have died. 

    Someone wondered why pet shelters were still open and I wondered if some people were adopting.  My niece has two cats that she cannot keep if she stays with my sister.  I suggested my mom.  I know I enjoy the one creature on this earth doesn't have to social distance me!

    We check in with daily with a few older couples from Church and my 96 yo Great Aunt by phone daily

    It means a lot to know that someone is thinking of you.

    The comment I was responding to suggested that churches share a common wine thing, possibly passing a bottle like a bunch of rubes.  I think they tend to each have their own glass and use napkins and Kleenex and such. 

     

      I'd assume the handrails on the average NYC subway staircase, rail car, and taxi/uber door handle, have a fair amount of dried bodily fluids on them. 

     

    Back in the day, there was a reason why David Letterman used to call winter the "frozen spit season" in NYC, LOL.  Maybe that has something to do with the infection rate in NYC, not that you'd ever hear a scientist or politician say it.

     

     

    Further thinly veiled stereotypes will result in suspension or termination of your posting privileges here.

    My mom said when she went to Walmart there wasn’t a lot of people but there was quite a few elderly. One guy had his scooter and didn’t look like he had a care in the world. Now I live in northern Indiana in Allen County. We have only had 7 confirmed cases. It seems the Indy area has most of the cases. 

    I'm concerned about Indiana.  Our death toll is about same that Illinois has.

    Positive tests all over the state.  true most confirmed in Indianapolis and collar counties but I'd bet that's where most of the testing is happening

    Listening to the governor, he sounds very concerned.

    I wouldn't make that assumption about the average NYC subway user tho. 

    Wow

    I'm not sure that is his call to make. The attending physicians should have on the ground powers to decide on a case by case basis.  

    Heard him say that during his press conference this am. Not the first come first serve thing but, that they were not going to assume older patients didn't get treatment

    False, the government does not this decision at all. Clinicians make the call, same as in the US and in every other medical setting. 

     

    How are the old "left to die"? If you're referring to, the introduction of revised clinical treatment guidelines during a pandemic, that's the reality of dealing with this. If the US hit an Italy like scenario, you would see the same. They would shift treatment priorities to save the greatest number of people net. Sadly, that means it likely that the patients with lower chances of survival may well only receive palliation. 

     

    I'm far from dumb when it comes to healthcare and it's provision. It's my profession. 

    Governor of New York says he's not prioritizing younger people so, I guess it's first come first serve when the system gets overwhelmed

    Last night, my daughter mentioned that she couldn't taste anything at supper.  Kept adding red pepper powder.  So this morning's article caught my eye.  

     

    https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/international/world-news/lost-sense-of-smell-may-be-peculiar-clue-to-coronavirus-infection/articleshow/74767666.cms

     

    I hope she is ok.  My sister has this and says her sense of smell is gone, no appetite, extreme weakness, cough, fever.  She also , says she's struggling with text messages. She's ok when you talk to her though.

     

    Anyway, keep an eye on her and get some Robitussin if you can find it
