Greetings all. Like some, I stepped away from the forum for awhile. Not due to any disscussions on here, but the over abundance of information I was consuming got to be too much (Twitter esp),

I am triple jabbed, as are *most* folks in my retirement community. They held a booster clinic about two weeks ago.
Visiting family that I haven't seen in about two years now, for Thanksgiving.

Right before I left on vacation, a youngish lady (early 60's) in a wheelchair (she had a previous brain anyuresm she had recovered from) was dx with Covid when she fell in the community and was taken to the hospital. She now has pnemonia and is still in hospital. Rumor has it that she was not vaccinated.

We have been very lucky here - I fear our luck though may run out- with the new *NU* variant abroad probably coming to the US soon. Interesting times.

Hi Tabitha,

This pandemic is very wearing on everyone in one way or another,

The last thing people want to hear is "Another* variant ......

What to do is the question,

Governments are in a very hard place,their duty is to protect the people,but also keep the economy running

My advice ,"Stock up"

It's going to get bumpy

Take care all 😷😉💉

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.🖖

Welp- we have ANOTHER Covid positive resident. He is a man in his 90's - 3x vaxxed. So far he is confined to his apartment and taking meals there. I don't know anything more, but our community is soooo very lax on masks and visitors wearing masks
and just an overall feeling that the pandemic is over.
He did travel to Atlanta recently with his son, so we are all thinkiing that is where/when he was exposed.

Then there is the mysterious case of a resident who is in the hospital (not the original Covid resident- she is still in the hospital) but her neighbor....who according to the grapevine has a "virus in her throat" but its not Covid...ummmmm yah sure its not! Hospitalized? Virus in her throat? Not Covid?

UGH. I don't know how you've managed to (stay sane, not kill everyone - take your pick) handle this since the beginning.   Sending you so many good thoughts....
