I've got my annual bout of bronchitis just as gardening season starts. Luckily I work from home and hubby is retired. I'm hoping the people around here who are much higher risk than I am are able to stay safe and well.

I'm in Washington State and I'm just not bothering with the stats.

I hope everyone is keeping well with the outbreak of COVID-19. Things in the Northeast USA are kind of crazy, but not completely out of control, other than the TP shelves being empty most of the time. Here in RI, we have 54 cases as of this morning, 3/21/20. Both my wife and I are still working as we are considered essential reporters. Jan works at the Outpatient oncology clinic at RI Hospital, and I maintain the state's 800 MHz public safety radio system. With remote access to the system, I can do most of my work from right here at my desk. Most of the sites are um-manned, so my risk for exposure is low. By comparison my wife is in the high risk category.

Hopefully, no one here is being affected, either by the illness, or the economic impact. Stay safe everyone!
  

What do you mean, we're out of coffee!

Sheesh, bad colds and bug bite infections (shudder) Hope all goes well! Hey, those antibiotics can be murder. Before my Dad died, he was bed ridden due to a stroke and developed bad bed sores on his legs which got worse and worse because of his diabetes and the doc gave him some really strong antibiotics which almost killed him.

Sure hope everyone feels better soon!!!!! I'll send along some groovy vibes to help y'all along ...

Claire,
I didn't get on here at the forum until this morning.  Hope you got the antibiotic okay and your bite is healing well!  Get well soon!  Smiley

Yesterday I felt great, but this morning I'm back to not so great.  But it's going to be a packed week, so I have to keep working no matter how I feel.  Thank God I'm mostly done!  Cool


Up and about too soon maybe Denise?  Take it easy, rest and get yourself back to 100%.

My leg is still in 'orrible mode, I'm sensitive to a lot of meds and the one I have which I'm ususally ok with is making me out of breath.  I have to put up with it though to get this infection gone.  Doc said it'll be about 7 days  Cry unless it decides to go ballistic in which case I have to go back Sad

I think bugs have an unfailing knack for biting where it'll do the most damage!  Nasty things!   Undecided

Hope it heals quickly for you!  I'll be sending healing thoughts your way!  Smiley


Thanks Denise, I got them.

Had to go to our minor injuries unit where the doc said it's got infected and is tracking across my leg - oh joy!!!  He wanted me to have oral antibiotics but because I am sensitive to so many he gave me a topical one.  But, he said if it doesn't settle by tomorrow with this I have to go back.  It's so painful walking cos it's just like a huge lump on my leg.  Because it's Easter here everythwre is closed but for one pharmacy this eveing, open for an hour at 5pm.  Have to go get in line now I think heh heh.

Denise,

Get well please!!

But if you could hang around for an hour or so ... I may be joining you  Wink.

Yesterday, woke up with what looks like an insect bite on my leg which may (or may not be) heading towards cellulitis!  It's on a part of my leg that has dodgy skin and the slightest thing sets it off.  Last time was 2006 and it was awful, so hoping this doesn't go up too  Undecided

Normandie,
Did you get the rain I sent you? 

No.  Angry And it was 29° in the shade yesterday afternoon.  Angry In a very shady area that never gets the sun.  Angry

Just means that it'll rain throughout June, July and August!

Hope you're feeling much better now, btw.  Smiley

This is the second day of my incarceration, and I'm tired of looking at nature through a window!  Can I please have some of Claire's warm weather, so that I'm not glaring at the rain and sneezing against the chill?  Embarrassed


Yep Denise, it's on it's way.  Shame there's no wind it would get over there quicker.  Stay warm and drink plenty of fluids like Deb says.  Horrible knowing you're not well, take care.
