I (& others) are staying away from the elderly for now, we’ve been told people can be contagious & not know, as with other ills. I won’t detail the pain that is for me, to not see certain loved ones. Playing the safe side on that one for a spell. I know many healthy people who would rather get sick & probably recover than be unemployed and scared sick about the future! I bet you know some too.
When people can’t choose how they will take care of their families, like catch a fish, pluck some berries while walking, & buy 2 loaves of bread to feed their children for a week, that’s a problem. We need to work, it’s not like every person’s eyeballs are singed in their sockets when coming into contact with this thing. It isn’t Ebola, either. I hear it’s bad, but what’s happening because of it, may be irreversible.
I hope the best for so many. Murph is a sunbeam of joy in my life, and hopefully in yours. I don’t want to add to this angst. I share with you that I’m deeply concerned about accessing all Murph’s needs regarding his diet and lighting in the future. I’m hoping all our darlings can get what they need from the humans they rely on. Sweet Murph is sleeping & can’t always keep his mommy quiet.
