Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

@itscarin, I know it's disturbing when the news media reports a daily tab on deaths in each country, but with Italy passing China's death rate, (and we thought China was bad on it's outbreak numbers) the U.S is so much larger. It's enough to scare me, I'm done going anywhere, but home and work (which I hate I have to go to work but being a fire dept dispatcher, it's mandatory) stay safe and keep your family safe!

@Luvstravel Thank you for your service. I don’t track the death tolls I’m just looking at what the experts are saying and they all seem really scared. The talk about having to decide who gets a ventilator is scary. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@itscarin Oh no you got shingles. I hope you are recovering from that. I have had it too and it’s the worst. At this time even though you want to go back to work and have a break it’s best to stay at home with the baby.  Plus they grow up too fast.

@itscarin, I always felt a lot better when my boys hit 8 months. At that age they can't talk yet, but they can sit up and their facial expressions are developed enough that you can tell when something is really wrong. It won't be too long. ❤

@SportyGirly125 I can’t complain. It was just itchy for me but I was terrified I was going to pass chicken pox on to my baby. Thank god it was on my back and he didn’t catch it!  I might be the only person who wants the baby to hurry up and grow. I’m not a mind reader and I want to know what he’s going to look like. I wish there was a spoiler for kids!

Hopefully she lets you know soon @itscarin!

❤ I hope you can work from home, @itscarin, and that this will be over soon!

Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I know I've posted about my younger son here before. More detail is that he has an autoimmune disease that attacks his bone marrow. So all of his blood counts are low. He's on an oral immunosuppressant to keep his blood cells at an ok range, and another intravenous immunosuppressant every two weeks to keep his immune system from destroying the red blood cells he manages to make (I.e., hemolysis). When I take him for his infusions he goes to a pediatric oncology office, and he's the healthiest kid there, because all of the other kids are getting their chemo. I've lived in fear of infecting the kids undergoing chemo for 7 years. The current coronavirus doesn't make me more exhausted, I'm just still exhausted. On the plus side, I've been bleaching my entire house and over-washing my hands for 7 years, so everything is clean.

Thanks, @Luvstravel! 💓 It's actually a lot less dramatic living it than it sounds talking about it (well, except the first two months). The last visit was the most stressed out I've ever seen his doctors, and we've been going there a long time.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I hope you guys stay safe @curlychiquita!
