I think the pandemic is starting to become real to a lot of people. On a sad note, my aunt died today of the coronavirus. She was quite old and quite ill with stage four cancer and went to the hospital yesterday with breathing difficulty then passed away this morning. I usually caught up with her every week or two and it was actually on my "to do" list to call her today but I got a message from my cousin this morning saying that she went to the hospital yesterday and passed away today. She had a huge family and will be greatly missed!
On another note, hubby is still cleaning at full speed--today he did some annual maintenance on our air conditioning system, cleaned out all of the bathroom exhaust fans, scrubbed the kitchen exhaust system, deep cleaned the vacuum cleaner (he does this periodically and it has kept the vacuum working like new for more than a decade!), and cleaned the fans we use during the summer. Wow. All of the very sad pandemic news, however, seems to be getting to him. We got a message last night that one of his bowling league friends is in the hospital on a ventilator so it seems like the bad news just keeps coming.
Now as we watch the news this evening, even the reporters are in tears as they talk about the dismal situation at many hospitals. I really hope this situation passes quickly and there are many fewer deaths than they are currently estimating will happen (anywhere from 200k to 1.2 million!). Stay well blogging friends!
