Great news Count. That has to be one of the scariest things parents go through. Feeling powerless over an illness.

So, her pulmonologist said basically, "screw this let's pump this kid full of tons of antibiotics" and that's what we did and it worked! She's cough-free, happy as a clam, and seems to have grown wildly while she was sick. It's weird but she's bigger and behaving herself better than ever.

Scary month, but (God willing) we're through it.



Good news!

Bless her heart (in the good way)

Thanks, folks. It was scary as Hell, and I'm delighted to have regular sweet, funny, smart Isabella back instead of the breathless, 'roided-out, Rage Hulk girl we've had around for weeks (the poor thing).

This was the other night and I noticed how the door to the toilet has a small window near the top. It's there to allow a person to see how if the light is on the toilet is occupied. I mean I always knew the room had a window but seeing it the other night set off a bell in my head. The idea I got wasn't original but I had always thought it was a funny idea like the monkey picture I keep in my wallet. I ask strangers if they want to see a picture of my son and show them the monkey picture. It's not original but I've gotten a lot of laughs from it. So, noticing the window I went online and Googled "scary faces" and the face I chose was this one.

Image

I printed out the picture and then pressed the paper face into the small window so it looks like this guy is staring out the window. Funny, right? Well, I hadn't expected such a quick response but almost as soon as I got the picture to stay in the window frame the door flew open and my wife was livid. "What the hell are you doing?"

"Was it scary?" I asked.

"Yeah, it's scary. What the hell makes you want to do something like this?"

"Because it's funny?"

But she was so not amused I immediately took the picture down.

But it looked really spooky, like there really was a stranger in our toilet. 8-)

I was sent flowers in a box in the post this morning unexpectedly.
I had no idea what they'd turn out like quality wise with transit but they were very pretty and smelt gorgeous. Blue hyacinths, golden rod, white roses, yellow daffodils and white tulips.

I stopped at my local hardware store to get some floor cleaner and they had a sign on the door that they are sold out of N95 face masks. Let the panic begin!

Here’s something about the changes in the criminal justice system in Houston. It was pretty good!

If it's anything like Hong Kong then today it'll be facemasks, tomorrow rice and the next day toilet rolls! Stock up on those toilet roll NOW before it's too late.

I went to the supermarket earlier for cat treats and noticed that the shelves were practically bare of toilet paper. No worries for me as I always hoard toilet paper. I doubt if there are any face masks around anywhere.

If someone took one I'll post but I was too busy commandeering the mic to notice if anyone did. It's quite possible. We had the dance moves and everything and of course we sang with gusto!

I will. She's do to arrive in an hour or so. It plays on her phone but not on my iPad. I don't know if I need an app I don't have or something else. Sound is poor but the fun is rich.

I must be some sort of a freak as I was just about the only one at the supermarket not purchasing toilet paper or Lysol of any kind. :D

*Since I make most purchases when items go on sale, there is rarely a need to buy into panic buying as my shelves are full.

I like my neighbourhood -

Corona virus - community support

Ayca - Mar 14 - #11344

Hello Everyone,

I am sorry about coming up with an email like this but I wonder how can we support our community, elderly people or anyone who may get ill or need to stay in quarantine because of corona virus?

When/if people gets ill , they won’t be able to go to shops, pharmacies or maybe cook. Elderly people maybe at risk already. Is Furzedown project organising anything for them? Also I wonder if we organise a volunteering group for the community to raise the awareness about helping out neighbours?

Any thoughts?

Best, Ayca


Note: I can technically post an URL link to the thread to show the numerous stream of posts with generous responses, offers of help and advice - it's quite overwhelming & heartwarming - but I can't as there's too much personal info on there - Tel Nos, E mail addresses, full names, yada yada
