      Thank you DorothyMH CODawn Mamatigerj Mianevem sleep_twitch Zastria Trbrat75 'rin Anek - I appreciate your support!

      My father has seemed okay mentally again today. He still is not eating much, but he is at least eating something. This morning I made a grocery run and got a bunch of soups and meal replacement beverages in that hope that we'll be able to get more nutrients into him that way. I told him he has to stay well now because on Friday a Covid outbreak was declared in the hospital that serves our area. They now have 14 cases in the very ward that my father was in in December.

        *I decided to keep this day as a recovery day and not use it to catch up on the workout I missed on Saturday. I also did not run, and I took my dogs for only a short walk, because the wind was bitterly cold. We're expecting more cold temperatures and high winds in the days ahead. So this may end up being a short mileage week. But this is to be expected for this time of year. I'll make up the mileage in the spring if I end up falling behind this month.

              Like for the exercise, but eekse for the covid in your neighborhood's hospital. This virus is starting to get really, really heavy...

              Comment


                Thank you DorothyMH

                Yep, PetiteSheWolf . They added another new case to the outbreak on the Medicine ward yesterday. That same hospital also has an outbreak in its Covid ward. Obviously a Covid ward is going to have patients with Covid in it. But the "outbreak" status is only designated if two or more people on the ward--patients and/or staff--are believed to have caught Covid on that ward. So this means that in a hospital ward which is supposed to be taking the highest levels of precautionary measures possible (no visitors, staff in full PPE, etc.) Covid transmission is still occurring. Meanwhile the hospital keeps releasing PSAs stating, "CKHA would like to remind the community that the hospital continues to remain a safe place to receive care." How is 15 people catching Covid in one ward safe?

                There are also three long term care homes in my region with active Covid outbreaks. An outbreak status is declared in an LTC if even one person (staff or resident) tests positive for Covid, regardless of the suspected path of transmission. Two of the three current outbreaks are reporting only the one case in each home thus far--hopefully a sign that those outbreaks are contained. But the 3rd location was reporting 59 cases two days ago and 71 cases yesterday. That outbreak was declared on January 10, and it's still not under control. Meanwhile, our region has only received enough vaccine to give the first shots to residents at two of our long term care homes. None of our health care workers have been vaccinated yet, and most of our most vulnerable people are still unprotected.

                Last night my father was hallucinating again. All night long. My mother hardly slept. She went to bed this morning when I got up. Normally I would go to the grocery store first thing on Thursdays, to get what we need before there is a crowd there. This morning I waited to talk to my father's attendant first, to let her know what to expect. The attendant arrived, and I had just opened my mouth to start to explain the situation to her, when my father started shouting.

                "Laura! Laura! Help me!"

                I went down to his room. "Dad, what's wrong?"

                "Help me!" he said again. "They're trying to tie me to the bed."

                I told him there was no one in the room except him and me, and he said, "Thank you." But in the middle of the night when he asked my mother to bring him something he could use as a weapon to defend himself against the six people he thought were in his room at that time, and she tried to tell him there was no one there, he said, "They're laughing at you because they can make themselves invisible so you can't see them."

                I'm terrified of him having to go back into the hospital now that they have Covid there. (We wouldn't sent him anywhere just because of the hallucinating. An unfamiliar environment would be even worse for him. But I'm afraid of something else going wrong that would require medical attention.)

                Anyhow... if I'm sporadic about checking in or absent from the Hive over the next little while, please know that I'm okay. (Not "my life is awesome, couldn't be better" okay, but okay in the sense that I will survive whatever is going on.) I'm still trying to maintain a normal schedule as much as is possible, but things in my cell of the Hive could be a little haywire for the foreseeable future.
