We have to think about what our game plan is for the Fall / Winter. My game plan is:
  1. Blood test my nutrient levels and adjust supplements as necessary
  2. Purchase 50,000 IU Vit D capsules to have on hand. My nephew is coming to school in NY and I have be able to run to him and dose him up if he gets sick.
  3. Everything else is the same. I'm using up my inventory of Lysol wipes and will use Force of Nature exclusively in my car and other places I used to use the wipes.
1. keep exercising, eating well and getting sunlight

2. continue supplementing

3. have some books ready in case they shut the world down again.

Sooooo I just had some bad news. My cousin called me and said basically her husband, the one I mentioned was on the vent for weeks is brain dead and on the brink of death. She says he has blood clots throughout his brain.

This is like a nightmare.

So tomorrow is my first day back to school for pre-planning. We are starting the year digitally for students, but for some crazed reason, teacher must physically come to the building for pre-planning. I plan on staying in my room as much as possible. There are some meeting scheduled in the cafeteria with the grade levels. Again, I will be as socially distanced as possible.

Please take care and pre-pack your tote bag tonight with all of your 'stay safe' essentials (i.e. extra face masks, wipes, your personal soap, your personal paper towels, your personal roll of bathroom tissue, plastic gloves, your personal spray cleaner, your personal bottles of drinking water, etc. (I don't trust folks who touch stuff :nono: ). You have to look out for yourself, folks lie when they say, they're cleaning everything. They want you to think they do, but ..... :nono:

@Alta Angel When I go into the office I NEED gloves and spray disinfectant. I sanitize the bathroom EVERY time I go.

One thing is certain, 'the same folks who didn't wash their hands 'before' Covid19 .....haven't changed their dirty habits. Nope :nono: It's against their 'constitutional rights' :look:

I meant to share that my Pastor and his wife caught COVID-19.
It was literally a few days before they had planned to have church IN church for the 1st time. Not that we had planned on attending in person.
So her father died and they attended the funeral. Someone who DIDN'T attend the funeral tested positive a little while after the funeral. Then a relative of that person who attended tested positive. So they took the test and were positive. They had to be hospitalized (they are spritely to be in their early 50's but pretty healthy)---but it triggered a discovery that my Pastor has Gulliame-Barre syndrome-an automimmune disease that flares up during illness and can be very painful. His vocal cords, legs, arms were starting to become paralyzed and that's why he went to the hospital. Wife had some breathing issues, and they are both now negative but he is now admitted into a Rehab place to help him walk again. His voice sounds hoarse...So it basically set his immune system awry---because otherwise he would have been asymptomatic for severe breathing issues.
I think this is why the doctors continue to be perplexed. About 10 years ago he had lost a lot of weight and was eating very healthy and was a "diet only" diabetic and off meds for again---10 years. The range of symptoms and what it flares up tends to be hugely individual and doctors can't keep up. Its really sad. We'll likely be returning to live church in no less than 6 months. My daughter LOVED going.

My baby (25) cousin tested positive. He went fishing with his white girlfriend’s family down in Mississippi no social distancing or mask wearing. They also went vacationing in Florida.

My parents’ neighbor also died unexpectedly over the weekend of a small bowel obstruction. She also happens to be the aunt of my best friend’s husband (he’s also my friend as well). She was a very sweet lady. There’s seriously too much going on right now.

My condolences to you and your family. What a difficult time. The worst thing to do is to hold all the sadness inside so share your pain anyway you can.
