As the caronavirus pandemic continues it begins to sink in that normal daily routines have for the foreseeable future, come to an end. There is no going to the diner. There is no going to the office. There is no hugging the grandchildren. A trip anywhere takes planning. Going to a grocery store requires, face masks, gloves, wipes and hand sanitizer.
There are no baseball games to watch on tv. Hockey should be in the middle of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Right now the new normal is nothing is normal.
And time is going by. These days just seem to be wasted in some way. There is no work to do. No trips to sell. No destinations to sell. The world is also closed down.
Maybe I should revisit my guitar playing. Or find a new hobby. I wish I could do some volunteer work but my medical
Status really keeps me from putting myself out in public, even with taking all the precessions. Open heart surgery and a pacemaker, even though I feel pretty good, does,so the doctors tell me, compromises my cardiac and pulmonary and immune system. Just can’t take the risk.
I have suffered flu like symptoms twice since my surgery. Once in mid December when I got severe chills and reaver and breathing difficulty. I even thought my open heart surgery had failed. But it abated and my pacemaker was calibrated and I felt better.
Than I had the same symptoms in mid March and it resolved in about three days. Sweats, chills and minor chest discomfort. Who knows what I had. Only an antibody test will tell.
