Went to the closest Walmart to me and they were out of tuna; the grocery store at the other end of town had a good supply in stock. There seemed to be the same amount of people out and about.
So glad all are well and that you have a plan in place!Cases in Utah jumped from 52 to 63. The first two cases were diagnosed in our county of just 100,000 people.
The earthquakes have caused some to come a bit unhinged. It's been a day of cruel rumors. Someone on the radio said FEMA warned of a 9.0 quake that would hit within a few hours of the original tremblor, which is, of course, ridiculous.
I heard from all my Salt Lake kids today, trying to calm them down. Nerves have been flayed already but this earthquake could not have come at a worse time. I totally relate to how out of control you feel things are. It messes with your head.
All are well, however. And we have a plan in place. Just need to keep cool and help everyone think through things rationally.
Dear Lord, Jeff. Is it possible for him to buy a bidet toilet seat and have it installed? I have one and it even dries me off. I rarely use TP and have had it for four years. It would probably pay for itself in less than a year with that much TP use.I had a long talk with my Dad last night. I'm so bothered. He spent most of his day yesterday out in stores, looking for toilet paper.
My father and his dear wife go through so much of it, due to their condition. Easily two of those big Costco cases a week, he tells me. So he's very very concerned. He was out nine hours going store to store.
It breaks my heart to think of him out there like that. Not to mention how dangerous that is. If he gets this thing it'll kill him. He's on chemo, he's got two bad knees and the Church brings in meals three days a week. I had to address some really tough things with him yesterday.
I've got all my kids and my brother and his kids trying to find what they need so they feel they don't have to go out.
This is really bothering me.
They have them installed in both bathrooms and have had them for some time. Unfortunately, due to their nature of their health issues they require a lot of TP, disinfectant, wipes, etc.Dear Lord, Jeff. Is it possible for him to buy a bidet toilet seat and have it installed?

Your brother and his wife are in my prayers. xxLatest update from my ALS care team at Mayo Clinic:
"There is no way to predict how many cases are in the State of Florida. Many places still do not have test kits, many people do not seek medical attention if their symptoms are not bad, and there are still an unknown number of people going around asymptomatic. We request you regard every person you get near a potential carrier until further notice."
I was advised to take my temperature every morning and every evening and call my doctor immediately if it is above 99. My normal temperature ranges from 96-97 and always has. My doctor called in a 90-day supply of all my prescriptions.
Meanwhile, kids out of school are still flooding our beaches. The lifeguard union recommended closing down all beaches in our County. I hope they do. I only go out to get some sun and float in the outdoor pool when nobody else is in it. It's the only way I can get pain-free range of motion.
Publix has started dedicating early hours to 60 and over or people with disabilities. Good.
Most of my supplies were stocked long before the outbreak. I decided to get some bottled water just in case we have a storm that knocks the power out and it'll be on hand for hurricane season which, because of climate change, is predicted to be bad.
I'm not an alarmist nor am I a scared person. I have a terminal illness that is progressing slowly, thank the Lord. I'm very scared for my brother who has alzheimer's. He and his wife are old and they live alone about 20 minutes from here. They are used to living in a tiny Village in upstate NY where people look after each other. He doesn't drive and she is 78 and has her own health issues. My brother has been coming down for Winters since 2010 and, before I got sick, I cared for him. He has had pneumonia twice and the flu twice during the time I was looking out for him. He has Lupus, now Alzheimer's. Please keep him and his wife in your prayers.
So there is a news report that a NJ man with a suspected case of coronavirus is being treated with an anti-malaria drug and he is recovering quickly. I hope that this is a medication that can treat the victims of this virus.
