of the virus is being away from the grandkids. We Face time with our 2 year old granddaughter every day. It’s something at least but I’d love to hug her. As her mom carried the phone, and her baby brother yesterday, she put the phone in her pocket. Quinn started calling “grandma! grandpa! Are you there? Phone was on speaker and I said, yes sweetie! We’re in your moms pocket! |
Realized how stupid that sounded. Who knows what she thinks. She may think we’re locked in the phone somehow, with the little video screen. Heartbreaking. But we laugh and sing together with her every day and she shows us all her stuffed animals. And especially the kitty ones. We show her the cats and she kisses the phone screen for them.
The cats are fine, I’ve been home several years and Dave retired last July. They like us around. We’re glad we have them too, especially during these times.
This virus is horrible. One of our very good friends caught the virus from work, where dave retired from. Thank God Dave doesn’t work there now. He’s in the hospital, and it’s hitting home and very real to us now. He’s doing better but has pneumonia. He was in bad shape before they took him in. Blood in stool, stomach pain. That was from the virus they say now, but they kept dismissing. Went to another hospital days later and they admitted him. He’s weak, and has a little trouble breathing but much better and not in pain now. He was upbeat yesterday when Dave called him. His wife is at home. She has bad MS. And is very worried. They could use prayers.
Bottom line, Keep inside folks, this is not a little issue. Be safe! And use the extra time to love on your pets/kitties.
