You have an enormous caring virtual family here at TCS that’s holding you, Rick, your entire family...and especially his mom...in our thoughts. Sending all of you strength and love.I'm here. I got knocked out by a really bad headache yesterday morning. I went right to bed, stayed there long enough to eat a little for supper, and went back to bed. I have no idea what caused this one. Thank you for the PMs, I will answer! I do feel human this morning. But that one? It was bad.
We have no word on Rick's mom. Nobody has called us, nobody has told us anything. Rick and his sister are beside themselves. Eighty residents have tested positive with another 20 pending results. Residents have died, but we don't know how many. A local large hospital has stepped in, both to help with the residents and to handle the virus. There are 40+ aides in the nursing home and over half of them are sick. They are going to try Remdesivir on the residents. But we got this from Rick's sister who knows something about what's going on, but she doesn't know about her own mom. Basically, we're still waiting around to hear something. Rick and his sister are talking now as I type. They're both very upset.
I mentioned that Rick and his sister were talking while I was back here. Evelyn was told she has tested positive for Covid. His sister got that from their mom; nobody has yet to call us. But she was told she is positive this morning. They moved her roommate out of the room, which makes us think that the roommate has not yet tested positive and they moved her to a different floor. Which also leaves us to believe that everybody on that particular floor has tested positive. Sorry for all the "leaves us to believe stuff" but again, nobody from the nursing home has contacted us at all. And that is weird because they'll call us if she falls, if she has a bruise, etc. I think Covid is a little more serious than a bruise, but.....nothing. And we know they're busy. We get that. But this is our mom we're talking about, well Rick's mom. We're scared.
- Rick got up with the girls and the M & Ms and I lounged quite late this morning, til around 9:30. I'm up now and enjoying my coffee.
- Excitedly waiting on my new iPhone to be delivered today. I've always had Android phones. I had given Rick the iPhone X several years ago as a Christmas present. This is my Christmas present to me from me.....for the next 50 million years. I went with the ProMax, (Pacific Blue) simply because of the better camera and because I think I'll like having a larger phone. I was the very last hold-out in my entire family to still have an Android.
- Have the first of two loads of laundry in the washer.
