Lago, seriously! Have the very best time with them. The time just FLIES past. Our oldest grand is now 13 and it seems like yesterday she was born. I thought it was fast when my kids grew up, but grands grow faster! Didn't know that was possible. LOL

how fast does it take to b infected with anything vaxers are carrying? a minute.

met with some of GF's family yesterday in a parking lot. 1 of them ran up and hugged her. they were talking outside with no masks. GF complaining she has diarreha. we came home, a few hours drive. she took a bleach bath. put her on horse oats today.

yes, it could just b from the trip and she is tired. but that has not happened before and we make the same drive several times a year.

Extremely critical bluetooth vulnerability out there that allows an attacker within range to pair a virtual keyboard with your bluetooth device, no authentication or notification required. This then allows them to enter commands into your device in the background and pretty much do whatever they want.

This vulnerability affects Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android, and iOS devices - phones, tablets, and laptops. Current recommendation is to completely disable bluetooth on all of your devices until security patches are released. (Yes, it's that bad.)

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
i think she got something on her coat and carried it home from the meeting. then went to the store and infected herself when she put the coat on. then she turned into a wharewolf with Thanksgiving. stayed up baking. i tell her not to cause it ain't worth cooking like that for just 2 of us.

with our sleep out of whack, that weakened us. i could hear it in her lungs. instantly horse oats and fish meds. she had it much deeper in lungs than me. and was sick longer. she was getting over the cough slowly.

but i think the fever dehydrated me. we can't get adjusted to the temp in here since the cold drop a cpl wks ago.sometimes we are damp and cold ,sometimes too hot.

even here our hospitals have lost workers. and the new workers don't have the experience.was not busy but took 2 hours to get into a room. bout 2 hours later they decided they wanted a urine sample. what they should have ordered in the 1st 20 mins. reminded me of the road crew, more workers and less getting done. make a plan up as they go along.

took me bout 2 hours once i got home to make it to the tub for my bleach bath. was over medicated. i didn't need the 2nd batch of pain killers. it sure messed me up.

we tried to go to the ER early enuf we'd b in and out. that didn't work at all. hate to think how bad things must b in the cities.

hopefully we can catch back up to normal here next week.

 Quoting: JAZZz50

I empathize with the kidney stone pain, nothing quite like it.

I had to take hydrocodone for a week during which time I passed minute bits of two kidney stones that I keep in a little bottle next to my computer, lest I forget. It increased my daily water consumption 4 fold forever.. Peeing a lot is a tiny price to pay. By the way I now monitor the colour of my pee. If it is even a little yellow, etc, down goes a another glass of water..I hope you both fully recover soon.

They're recommending all bluetooth devices on phones, tablets, and computers be disabled while in public until security patches have been released. Yeah, that's a huge deal. In your home or office, you should be safer.

Thanks! We are caring for him at least 4 times per week. Keeping him occupied is becoming a thing. My philosophy is let him do anything he likes that does not hurt/kill him. Mrs Lago would like to be a bit more restrictive, e.g. Baby playpen about six feet in diameter.

this stinks.

Pediatrician explains 'white lung syndrome' after severe case of pneumonia in local boy

"a local pediatrician is reiterating that pneumonia is common this time of year and "white lung syndrome" is just another term for the illness.

After days of no answers and over a week of a fever that reached 105 degrees, Julie finally pushed for a chest X-ray, where doctors found Joel's severe case of bacterial pneumonia."

so it's common and nothing to worry bout but the doctors couldn't diagnose it for days and needed pushed by parents to run an x-ray. derp which way is up?

back to pre-covid or worse. are u sick? go to school. what level did they close at in 2019/2018?

"School is experiencing excessively high student absences related to
various student illnesses. Today, the school is reaching 35% absences. As a precautionary measure, if your child is sick, or exhibiting symptoms of illness their absence from High School on Thursday, December 7th and Friday, December 8th will not count against them or their exam exemptions.
School will continue to operate and be in-session for those two days as scheduled.."

pulled from social media. AL school.

this 1 from CA-

"FYI:
There is no Covid outbreak at the school and it is at the parents discretion if they want to keep kids home because of covid.
The school will remain open until otherwise instructed.
Thank you for your understanding."
