|"May we have more kibble, please?"|
The racoons are back! There were two of them, actually, but, this one was the bigger, bolder one, who came right up to the door. (I really need to clean that door!) They ate all the kibble I had put out for Mama Cat!
It rained last night (Sunday night/early Monday morning). But, the rain had ceased by the time I woke up at 8:30 a.m. and we had a partly cloudy and rather cool day. It was 48F outside, around 11:30 a.m., when I checked, and the high was 54F. It is 45F as I type this at midnight on Monday night, and tonight's low is supposed to be 38F. I have had the heater on all day, today.
My daughter had her phone consultation with the doctor this morning. The doctor had said that while daughter was eligible to receive one of the Covid treatments that are available, there was a risk of it interacting with daughter's asthma medication and causing some side effects and other complications. Given the fact that daughter's symptoms seem to be fairly moderate and her age and general health, the doctor's advice was to let the virus run its course. However, if daughter did experience any worsening of symptoms by the end of the day, today, then, she needed to contact the clinic and they will re-evaluate the situation and the risk-benefit aspects of getting a treatment. Also, if daughter experienced any difficulty breathing, then, she needed to go to the emergency room right away.
Fortunately, daughter felt a little better, today. She was able to go a bit longer between doses of ibuprofen and she didn't have a headache. Her throat is less scratchy and sore, she said, although she is still coughing. She did experience more fatigue, today, and took several short naps.
I did a load of laundry, today, started the car, made a couple of cards, took the trash cans to the end of the driveway, and crocheted.
M texted pictures of bags of the different sized pebbles he was able to find at a garden supplies store he was visiting and I selected one (for the parkway), but, told him to feel free to choose a different size of pebbles if he thought they'd be better. He said there was one other place he wanted to check, as well.
Later, I spoke on the phone with aunt C and friend R.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter was able to consult with her doctor
- Daughter was feeling a little better
- Access to medical care and paid sick leave!
- Working appliances
- Chats with family and friends
Today's joyful activities included crocheting and card making.
Plans for tomorrow include making the last few cards and hemming daughter's dress.
How was your Monday? What are your plans for Tuesday?
