day #12 covid 19 quarantine


here is my advise to you

wear a mask when you go out the door it helps to keep you from touching your face
wash your hands and dont touch your face
dont go outside

here is my update
i have been fever free now for 48 hours
i have my appetite mostly all back
i ate three regular meals yesterday
i had a 1/4 glass of red wine last night at 5pm
i had my favorite cookie after eating my supper or dinner whatever you call the last meal of the day
i call it supper
i only have a runny nose when i wear my n95 mask
i think its because it seals around my face so well that it traps the moisture from my exhaled air
i have no body aches
i have no headache
i still have my hoarseness that developed late
so far thats as far as this has gone

my plan
i will isolate in this dungeon for 48 hours more
if im symptom free then my wife she and i will open the door and hug each other with our masks on of course
we will stay inside on friday and clean this mess up in our condo
on saturday we will be able to go outside if we want to
we will go outside with our masks on or will use my bandannas that i wear when i work in the garden
it keeps my hands off my face and probably keeps us from spreading our respiratory droplets around
these bandannas will be changed every day
when we come back inside the first thing we will do is wash our hands
i will though wear my n95 mask for awhile since even though i am following guidelines i will be overly cautious just to be safe
i dont want to give this to anyone else

my wife she bugged me for two days to watch this video
i didnt because it was an hour long
i relented and watched it

it is one hour long
the first 25 minutes is this doctor telling you how to keep you and your family safe
the rest of the time he answers questions from folks online
he answered all the questions i had and probably yours as well

he works at a large hospital in new york
all he sees all day long for hours is sick covid 19 patients
he isnt  worried about getting the infection
he isnt worried about his family getting the infection
as he says he follows the rules

whats the rule
i wrote them at the beginning of this blog

i must say i felt so much less anxious about this covid 19 outbreak after those first 25 minutes
you will too if you watch it

if you are going to watch anything online today it needs to be this one

in summary
stay calm
follow the rules

wear a mask preferably one you make yourself or wear a bandanna
wash your hands
dont touch your face since thats probably how folks catch it
stay inside
if you go outside
you guessed
follow the rules

it seems the president has know decided to listen to his two grey headed scientist advisers
we are better off for his making that decision

the company that makes the digital thermometers that folks can download their temps recently posted a picture of the areas with the highest temperature reading in folks
here is the graph click here

it was new york
it was florida which had the most red 
what that means is that florida will have a surge in cases in about two weeks that like i said yesterday will disturb all of us a lot since they have so many hi risk cases that live there

the two states that flattened the curve the most was california and washington state
they shut things down early and probably saved thousands of lives
you dont see many red areas on that graph for those states

some of you dont have red areas yet because the outbreaks havent hit there yet

the state that may get hit worse
they still havent shut things down

wear a mask you make yourself when you go outside
dont touch your face since thats how you will catch it
wash your hands
dont go outside

be safe
