The uncertainty about COVID is depressing.  I mean how long it will last, the whole world is affected by it.....etc.


mom, that's interesting.  Haven't met a beekeeper before.


My younger brother had a "bee hotel" in his yard.  It was a piece of plywood nailed to his garage.....had a whole bunch of holes drilled in it where bees could relax/sleep.  (?)  He said most bees are solitary ???  They were the ones sleeping in his "hotel."

Coincidentally, my oldest brother had a "bat hotel" in his yard.  Looked just like a bird house.

Hi, Paul....I'm doing well - no pain.


Hi, guys, I wan't coping so well, but I'm turning over a new leaf today.

I mentioned this on another forum:

I'm fixating, reading about COVID all day long on the net, "putting life on hold" until COVID blows over. Not good!

I'm being more positive starting today. :)

Thanks, Paul.

Update:  2 days later I get a horrible all day chest pain...hurts when I inhale....I can hardly walk!  (I read you can get pains after an ablation)

Went to St. Mikes Emergency ....I was there for hours and hours.  Hardly any other patients!...odd.

Junior cardiologist thought it was a heart inflammation.
Said to take Aleve, which I have at home, and gave a prescription for an anti inflammatory.  Too late to fill prescription, so I took one Aleve....much better!  Another Aleve the next day even better! I was surprised.  I took the odd prescription medication I picked up, and maybe I didn't even need it...amazing.

Update:  my procedure was Tuesday at 7:00 (!) a.m.  I was home in the afternoon.  I think I had the ablation sooner than later because my meds weren't helping.

The doctor decided to use general anesthesia.

I don't have to go again - they fixed my problem.  My chest is a little sore - common, I looked it up.

I'm 73 in June, not 74,

I feel kinda better....thanks, mom.

This coronavirus situation is like a bad dream, or a scary movie.

When I got up today, I was sneezing like crazy, and the runniest nose I've ever had!  I was really alarmed!

I was afraid to get on the bus/go to the barbershop like that.

I was much better after a couple of hours....

I don't think those are corona symptoms...?


I'm 74 (years young :P) in June.

Hard to find hand sanitizer in stores!

My medications were changed a bit recently, as my heart was still fast, and weak...

I'm getting an ECG soon to see if the med change made a difference.

My procedure "ablation" is the end of March.....probably..

I originally said I wanted a general anesthetic so I'll be out like a light.
I changed my mind - I'll go out of my comfort zone, and get a local anesthetic, which is the usual way of doing it.
Sorry if you can hear me screaming all the way from St. Mikes.... :o

A guy on my floor had something very similar with NO anesthetic.....he said it was a cinch, and he could see his heart pumping on a tv screen during the procedure!

Mom, you're not ranting at all.

This is one of the only place I can count on.
  Mom, we appreciate you....and appreciate our forum.


I wish you could instant message people on there...

Mom, sararuth, let us know when you have updates.


MDAO has a clutter/hoarding support group.  I went once.  I clutter, but I'm not a hoarder.

I clutter less lately.

Mom, thanks for your thoughts.  He moved into a FANCY retirement home in Thorncliffe Park the other day.

My youngest brother also found an apt in East York recently. (he was living in younger brother's basement)

I had hoped he would move into some kind of seniors housing - cheaper or subsidized rent, and importantly, social contact.
He has social phobia, like a lot of family members.

I'm in a seniors building - there's always someone to talk to on the first floor - meeting rooms, reception....and we have activities, exercise classes.  (some, not a lot)

Sorry to hog all the real estate here, but I may as well move "my brother with leukemia" from the thread "Christmas/Vacation plans?"

I'll fix this post next time...too tired.
