Hello all, finally felt good enough to text a little. I think it was Monday night I was taken to the hospital. I have covid pneumonia and they are doing everything they can to keep me off a ventilator. Treatment is going well and I think I will have rounded the corner.
Everyone stay safe and I will try to update.
Oh my gosh, Ray! Terrible news. Thinking about you and sending all good hopes and wishes your way!

Finally. A really nice day here in Maryland. That Canadian cold front moved in overnight, temps dropped, humidity has taken a leave of absence. Soooooooo, off kayaking to an area an hour South and East of here right adjacent to the Chesapeake Bay.

Lets see…. always hard to pick one.

Ok, this one too of this old Fishing & Hunting shack along the creek.

I'll be praying Ray 🙏. It's good they have more treatments now but I figure it's still hard to go through. How is Rose? Hopefully she doesn't get it too. Being together doesn't really mean someone else will get it from you though. My brother and his wife visited me while I was really sick and didn't wear a mask. Neither one of them got it. It's a weird virus.

Blimey Ray, I am so sorry to hear that!
So pleased you haven't had to be ventilated and seem to be improving.
I will be thinking of you and I'm sending all good wishes to you for a speedy full recovery, and love also to Rose who must be so worried.
Take care and stay strong!! x

3 more days of Resdesivir and hopefully I will get to go home. All the doctors feel my lungs are clear enough. That I won't be going on a ventilator. My oxygen saturation has gone up. Sometimes I am in the low 90's. 👍

Thanks Lyn, Rose and her mother (Nanay) are positive also. But they don't have the pneumonia. 😁 They are being treated at home and seem to be recovering. So since she is positive they won't allow her on my floor. Which is a good thing because she would be running herself down.

Thanks Cathie, Rose and Nanay have a mild case. They are being treated at home and resting. I am thankful that neither of them are sick enough to be in the hospital.

Thanks Yvonne, I am feeling better. My problem now is Opo is misbehaving and with Rose being sick also. He is burrowing under the shed again and Rose is trying to play wack a mo with him. She fills in one hole he goes to another. He has 3 burrows he keeps returning to. 😖😖

Lets get you home first. A Sully digging is like rain coming down its natural. Just breath deeply like the doc says, because before you know it it will be too cold outside for Opo and he will be scratching to come in!

Maybe block off 2 and let him have his way with one?
Then as long as the shed is safe leave him to it for now until you're all well enough to deal with it. You just concentrate on getting well.

Thank goodness they are mild cases and I'm pleased to hear you are responding well and may be home soon. You'll still all need to take it easy for a good while though - even mild doses of covid can leave you drained.

Good morning/afternoon all.
It was a pretty uncomfortable night with the high temps we have at the moment. I had an electric fan running all night which did help some but it still felt stifling. Can't wait for next week when the temps will be normal -ish again. Hopefully we'll have enough rain to at least dampen everything down.
I hope everyone has a good Saturday
TTFN

Good morning! I was thinking of all of you and now I’m praying extra for Ray and Rose. Everyone is well here on my end. Jess is home for the weekend along with her BF ( who seems like a really nice guy).. Ally got her permit this summer and started her sophomore year at school and Jayden is now in 3rd grade. My three Sullys are great. Pickles has outgrown Toretto this summer by a 1/2lb despite being 2 yrs younger. Crusher is growing but remains less than half of Pickles 52lbs. odd group they are:) Cinder had her 3rd bday last week and remains queen bee of course. all the other animals are also well and spoiled and the new Baby Honey is growing and progressing well. I miss you all!

Hi Heather
Good to hear from you and glad you and all the 2 and 4 legged family are well.
Cinders looks really impressed with her birthday party :D but I'm sure she enjoyed it!
Little Honey is really cute and looks like the 'speak no evil' wise monkey in that picture.
I hope Jayden enjoys his 3rd grade. The schools in Wales and England don't start back until the beginning of September so they have a few weeks holiday left but I think Scottish schools start next week. I don't miss any of that since I retired - every day's a holiday for me!!
Take care and pop back and see us when you can.

You are right, I can't do anything about it. None of the burrows are safe. But let him be content with one. Thanks Lyn
