    ((((((Hugs to All)))))) ~

    Virginia ~

    Do you have a thermometer, so you can take your temperature? As you know, hot and cold/chills can indicate a fever.

    Do you have any other symptoms, like a headache, sore throat or cough or chest tightness? Body aches?

    Have you tried taking Tylenol? Are you drinking plenty of water? With these symptoms, I feel like you should increase your fluid intake. I don't want you to become dehydrated.

    If you have a BP monitor, I recommend you take your BP periodically.

    I believe everyone should have a couple of thermometers, a BP monitor/machine, and a pulse ox. Keeping track of our vitals regularly is important, so that if we have a major change, we know our baseline.

    I wish I could come over and take care of you! Since I can't, I hope you will be able to take good care of yourself.

    Do you have access to a Nurses' Helpline? I think United Healthcare offers that as a free service. Perhaps checking in with a nurse would be helpful for you. Or you could call your PCP, and the on call doctor or nurse should be able to help you.

    Sending lots of healing prayers your way, dear friend ~

    Love & Light,



    Rose

    Virginia, how are you feeling now. I will check on you upon awakening.
    I fear that they could be COVID, or not. Have you called your PCP?

    Let's hope it's not COVID-19, Virginia. I'm hoping it's gone now.

    We're vulnerable, unfortunately. Something I don't like to think about but it's a fact.

    Cool

    No one has posted for lets see....26 hours. You're scaring Sam. I guess this virus has folks even afraid to post here.

    Well, tomorrow, I have a doctor's appointment. It's mostly to revamp my meds, and to see how I'm doing on the Gabapentin. I really don't feel anything, but the seizures have stopped completely as soon as I took the first pill.

    And since I'll be out, I'll go to the store on the way home. And stop at the ATM and get some cash. It's the only place I use my debit card. I never go anywhere and use it.

    So that's the plan for Howie tomorrow. Tonight, I'm watching the Star Trek channel I have now. It's called the H&I channel. It's right up my alley. The last one I watch before I go to bed is Enterprise. With that hot Vulcan T'pol. She fills out a uniform nicely. Hey, I'm old, but I ain't dead!

    Well, everyone have a great, late night!

    Good night, Howie, be safe out in the world tomorrow. Wash your hands!

    Yes, Howie. Wear your mask too.

    You won't be identifiable in a lineup after you've broken into the ATM.

    I believe you had a cat named after T'pol?

    Agate, can I have some of that memory you have?

    Yes, I had a T'pol for a short time. She was the only cat I've ever known, that wouldn't just naturally use the litter box. I saw her pee on the floor ONE time, and my sister came and got her where she is now an outdoor farm cat.

    I probably shouldn't have mentioned it. I believe we're not supposed to give out any information about anyone unless the person has authorized it first.

    It would be OK if Howie had mentioned his cat T'pol because it's Howie's information. Not so OK if I mention it.
