  1. I am praying for him. Please keep us updated on how he is doing. I also pray no one else in your home gets it. That set up is seriously impressive! I don't blame you at all for not sending him away, I couldn't have either. You are doing a great job and I know he is very grateful to have you nearby and taking such good care of him.
  2. Oh I am heartbroken for you and your family. Making the decision to let our furry babes go is just excruciating. It truly is the hardest most loving decision we make. Sending you so many hugs and so much love. I fully believe we will see our pets again and that they are waiting for us. That doesn't take away any of the hurt and pain but does bring me some comfort.
  3. I hope he is doing much better now. I am thinking of all of you.
  4. I feel awful for her. I am over 50 years older than she is and I feel like it is going to last forever, I can't imagine trying to process it at her tender age.
  5. I hope all of you feel better soon.
  6. No, I would not remarry. Once is enough for me--been there, done that, have the scars to show for it.
  7. Thank you! I bet it was the diptheria vaccine that I reacted to as a child. I have always wondered. Well this is good info to have. Thank you.
  8. Thank you for the heads up on possible issues finding sneakers! I took my teen to Target today and there were very few sneakers in general. In her size there was one pair. They fit and we got them. We are still rather stunned that we got so lucky. Fortunately I don't need any because there were none at all in my size (8). They had NO olive oil. Paper towels were picked over. All the clorox products and cleaning products were well stocked. Otherwise it was truly hit and miss throughout the store. Edit: They were out of most of their brand of vitamins as well.
  9. I am allergic to horse serum. I have no idea what my reaction is but my mother (an RN) always told me to make sure I listed it as an allergy and never get it. It was used in a vaccine ( I was never told which one) when I was little. I always list it as an allergy. It is used in a chemotherapy drug currently, but those that are allergic to horse serum are given the rabbit version of that chemo---just an interesting FYI. I believe it might also be used in black widow spider anti-venom, but not positive on that. Most medical people look at me like I have 2 heads when I tell them I have an allergy to horse serum. I got the Pfizer vaccine with no problems at all. Hopefully my experience will reassure her a bit.
  10. You and I must be on the same emotional timeline. Today is when I kind of broke too and it all just feels so hard and overwhelming. It is why I decided to post. I find controlling what I can control helps a bit, and making sure we have everything we need with no fear of not being able to find it in the store helps. Thank you! My teen might need a pair this fall, so we will definitely look for them now.
  11. @MEmama....I understand what you mean about having your concerns validated. Honestly the thought of doing this again is enough to make me cry. The fear of what could be coming just chills me. I think this fall/winter has the potential to be worse that last year in some ways. As for our stock up status: like you guys, I need to go through and see exactly what we still have plenty of. I do need to stock our deep freezer with plenty of frozen veggies. Many things we probably have enough of but there are gaps. You guys are all giving me great suggestions for exactly what to check on and reminding me of what I may forget.
  12. Thank you for reminding me to order more masks. I have been putting it off, but like yours, ours are definitely showing their age.
  13. You took the words right out of my head. I have been thinking this all week and have had such a growing sense of dread.

  15. Things are starting to really feel unstable again. Are you preparing? Restocking? What do think will be the most important things to get now that may be unavailable later this year?
