My health has taken a turn for the better.

Post by fred » Tue Apr 20, 2021 2:09 pm

Hi folks. It looks like I'll be around a while longer. I'm tracked the source of an allergy that was taking me down and with the help of my new cleaning lady, it's all going to be clear sailing for a while.

I'm off on this beautiful sunny, 13 deg C., day. A little shopping & sun & moderate exercise, should do me good.
Best of Health to all.

I'm so glad to hear this Fred! What wonderful news!

I've been laid up with a foot injury. I'm feeling a lot better after 3 weeks and am doing well. I'm going to try to not drive for another couple of weeks though, but I am on the mend.

yes. It was 21 C. here today and I had lots of activity. Rain tomorrow, but plenty of indoor activities to keep me busy.
All the best with that foot Kitty.
Everyone stay healthy.

Thanks everyone! I'm doing really quite well considering. The specialist said it's like a sprain, but the small fractures are ligaments separating from the bones (sounds gross doesn't it? lol). I was able to get my first vaccine shot yesterday, WHOO HOO, the Moderna. I thought they were SO organized and talk about a well-oiled machine! I was able to wear my 6 1/2 sized boots and with the cane I did extremely well. Some of you may have heard that Dr. Isaac Bogoch, one of Canada's top disease specialists has commended our community for the good job they are doing with lowering their COVID numbers. We dropped 400 active case in something like 3 weeks. They targeted the homeless shelters and jails for vaccinations as that's how it spilled into the community (in addition to the eligible age roll out).

How are others doing with getting vaccinated? I hope you are all in good health. My second shot isn't until mid August, although I know they are hoping to move up the dates. I don't know if I want to fight with that Ontario Portal again, lol. I can see why some seniors are having trouble with it, although many people are more computer savvy.

Best to see this on Bill Gates first. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8alro6mjcsU

He's not who you think he is and the Giant Pharma companies are a racket.

Remember China had WouHan infected and contained. Inside was the only "wild" Covid-19 virus in the world. The only thing that could cause a world wide pandemic was if somebody got out and started to spread it. The U.S. and Canada both sent airliners in to "Take their people out." Canada put them up at the Trenton airbase for 2 weeks, and later that was where Canada's first outbreak of Covid-19 was. Within 3 months China had eradicated Covid-19 in Wouhan.
I was practically jumping up and down at the time screaming at anyone who would listen that there should be no break in the quarantine. Now, 3 million deaths later, It should be obvious to all that if we'd let the Chinese handle it, it would have been over long ago.
The U.S. and Canada couldn't have done a worse job if they'd been trying to create a worldwide pandemic.
The levels of incompetence and corruption in the West are beyong understanding.

I'm about 90% better now with both conditions and am thankfully a very good healer.

I think most of us are tired of the restrictions but we plug on. There's not much one can do, and this too shall pass. We have very few cases in Northwestern Ontario. Here there are 10 active cases per 10,000 and more than 80% of our 60+ aged people have been vaccinated with one shot . So we are in a very different situation than southern Ontario or Manitoba to the west. They have flown 5 people from Winnipeg to our hospital here, and 20 in total to NWO. I want to see my Dad in Manitoba, but will have to hold on for a while yet. I'm just glad he's doing SO well.

I'm so glad you're feeling better also, Kitty.
Our 3rd wave has been going through N.S. for about 3 or 4 months not. We peaked at about 274 new cases a day and then it started to come down. I think we had 17 cases yesterday and Kings County is in for some loosening of restrictions tomorrow, so the VON nurse said today. I looks like it might be a nice summer. Lots of intermittent rain & sunshine each week, so the green growing things are very happy. Humming Birds are really active. The male was doing his mating dance a week or two ago. The female was at the feeder today and she doe look like an expectant mother. I think we have just the two so far this year, but something has been depleting the syrup: 2 cups every 6 or 7 days. So there must be more. :lol: :)
I made a pancake this morning and used salt instead of sugar in the mix. Ooooo, it was awful! I'm glad I checked the humming bird syrup before I put it out earlier this morning. It would have been a disaster for them. :o :roll: :?

We've been very dry here and could use some of your rain, Fred. There have been a few storms but most have missed my part of the city. We even set a record for consecutive days in May with less than 1 mm of rain falling at the Airport - 20 days!!!

As you might guess, I follow events in Nova Scotia very closely, even watching the evening news broadcast most days. I hope that the slow reopening beginning tomorrow will work well after this most recent serious "blip".

Our official stay at home order ends tomorrow but things will not reopen, even slowly, until June 14th with some things having to wait until July.

Enjoy your hummingbirds - I've only seen one visit my feeder on two occasions since I put it out. I keep replacing the syrup every few days but it's not going down :(

I do have baby robins and baby starlings as well as a baby rabbit who are now joining their parents in visiting my yard. It keeps my feline companion happy watching all the activity.

Nice to hear about the wildlife around your place. I've always felt that it's a good sign when I come to a place and hear birds singing. There's not shortage of that here.
It's getting late for me and I don't have energy to list the birds here, right now.
I should get a few things done here & get some sleep. Have a good weekend everyone.

Other than probably a food poisoning episode a week ago today, I'm doing well. I learned to never reheat rice. I didn't store it wrong, but one never knows what happens at the restaurant. Chicken Fried Rice is particularly risky. So, lesson learned, even though I've done it many times with no problems. Our COVID cases are very low here with 8 in our city and surrounding townships. There are 7 in district communities and 12 in First Nation that are within the area for our Health Unit. So, we were very disappointed to not get a regional re-opening especially when we are so far removed from the GTA. I know some other communities feel the same way as Ontario is such a diverse province. Our isolation helps us here. I'm glad things are reopening, although I need a haircut. I won't get to Manitoba until Sept. I don't think, as they are in bad shape, although my Dad's community is the best in the province. He's also doing well, and I miss his cooking!

Here in N.S. we have our's down to around 10 or 15 new cases per day, and declining. I think we'll be lessening safety precautions soon. That leaves us safe until someone releases a new strain of the virus, or another kind altogether.

We've moved into Stage 2, so haircuts are available now. We have something like 6 active cases in the whole area, which is a large one. The city here is doing well.

Happy Canada Day everyone. I'm getting together with a friend but it won't be anything fancy this year. The nerve problem in my neck has resurfaced its ugly head...say a prayer for me that it calms down. It's very annoying. I have started accupuncture and will have it again tomorrow.

N.S. has 4 new cases on record. None in the Western section where I am. We're loosened up a bit here. Still wearing masks when we go into a store. But I could go biking almost any time without any problem.
