This afternoon I had a Skype video call with Justin and family. We do this at least once a month and sometimes more often. So when I went to write down the thing I am most thankful for today, it was the technology that allows me to see Ziggy and Coco in action and have long, wonderful conversations with Justin and Jo. We can talk on the telephone but seeing them on video helps me feel like I am right there with them. Technology comes with all kinds of issues, but I love and appreciate this aspect.
I didn’t do a lot today. I feel no worse or no better than yesterday, but I am just trying to rest and get rid of whatever it is I have. I am convinced that I do not have Covid. Rather, I think it is a sinus issue that was probably started by the yard work I was doing last weekend. Dumping lawn mower bag after lawn mower bag of leaves probably started the problem and it just came to a head on Thursday. I still have a scratchy throat but otherwise feel okay. I’ll be anxious to get the results of the Covid test to eliminate that possibility. In the meantime, I continue to walk with Shadow, read, and rest. Not a bad life, just not my usual, active normal.
