My friend Norma got her covid19 test results back. They were negative.
To say i am happy is an understatement. I am so relieved.
I am relieved for both of us. I hadnt told my parents that I was around her, but I did tell them she was being tested. I didnt want to worry them unnecessarily.
I kinda knew it wasnt coronavirus that she had, but you just can never be sure. But when she got tested, the ambulance guy said he didnt think she had it, so that was positive.
So drama over, lol. Life can resume as normal. And I can go visit her again now.
So glad I didnt have to be tested. I was so nervous about that.
But it worked out in the end…yay.
so my friend norma was tested for covid19 last night. the ambulance came to her house to test her. they arrived at 10:15 pm. thats pretty fucking late if you ask me, she was in bed and they rang her to say they were outside her door. so she had to get up and answer them and they came in all gowned up and did the test. they also checked her blood pressure, blood sugar, oxygen levels, and temperature. all were normal. so they said it is likely that she doesnt have the virus, but they couldnt say for sure. she should have her results either late tonight or if not then it will be monday. she rang me after they left because I told her to call me once she’d been tested. she said she felt headachy and weak, but other than the headache and some pain in her legs she is feeling ok today. the ambulance guy said she may have another virus, not corona, but some other one. she was worried that I was mad at her, i told her I wasnt. she didnt know she might have it, if she did know she wouldnt have let me come over. I know that. she is just not that type of person that she’d put others at risk of becoming sick. anyway. i hope she will be ok. and that the test was negative. fingers crossed for a positive result.
Its 5 AM here now. I woke at 4:30. Got up as I knew I wasnt going back to sleep. Had to let nitro out so I did that and made some coffee.
My Pa Frances is going to be here this morning. Although we are doing it a little differently, I am meeting her at the store instead of her coming here to my house, I’ll take a taxi there, and meet her there.
The store I am going to is lidal. They are getting talking weighing scales in, and I have to pick up two, one for my bathroom and one for my friend Norma. You have to be quick when they get stuff in, as it sells out right away as its at a bargain price.
This week they’ve gotten a lot of medical supplies in like blood pressure monitors, weighing scales, etc. I might buy a blood pressure monitor also. I’ll see if they look good. I think it’d be good to have one.
I also need to buy fruit, water, yogurt and a few other bits.
I told my friend Norma I’d drop her weighing scales off to her on my way home. When we get home we’ll do some housework before my PA has to leave at 11:30. I am going to wear a face mask to the store, so we’ll see how I do with that. Its the first time I’ve actually worn one when I am out. I havent been out much but we’ve been advised by our government to wear them now going into shops, and on public transport, so I have a cotton washable one which I will wear.
I dont think I’ll have time to take Nitro out walking today. I’ll take him out tomorrow instead.
Not sure how the rest of my day will look yet. I doubt it will be too busy. I hope you all have a great Thursday.
Well I lay down at around 6 this evening. I thought I wont sleep, but I ended up napping, and only when my friend Denise texted me with our result did I wake up. She wanted me to call her, so I did. That woke me up but that was after a 3 hour nap. So now I am wide awake, and its late, I took my meds, my night meds, I am hoping I might go back to sleep soon.
I will try for sleep anyway. If I cant or don’t, it wont be the end of the world. I can lay around tomorrow, I don’t have to be anywhere tomorrow. All I will be doing is reading and relaxing.
When troubles come your soul to try
You love the friend who just stands by.
Perhaps there’s nothing they can do
The thing is strictly up to you.
For there are troubles all your own
And paths the soul must tread alone.
Times when love can’t smooth the road
Nor friendship lift the heavy load.
But just to feel you have a friend
Who will stand by until the end.
Whose sympathy through all endures
Whose warm handclasp is always yours.
It helps somehow to pull you through
Although there’s nothing they can do.
And so with fervent heart we cry
God Bless the friend who just stands by.
Todays prompts are: couch, foot, helmet
I sat on the couch
Tapping my foot
What I should do
Anxiously I pondered it
Where I should go
Taking my time
Sitting, going slow
Things hadnt gone well
My friend wasnt wearing his helmet
And it happened all too soon
He got run over
A car hit him head on
Now we’re all left
So sad, so forelorn
He was taken from us way too soon
Gone in a blink of an eye
That a helmet wasnt for him
A very, very bad decision!
So I have had a really fun time with my friend this afternoon. I spent a very nice 3 hours with her. We hung out and chatted. We basically put the world to rights. She had asked me if I wanted to have dinner with her but I had already left out chili so I didn’t take her up on that offer. I told her that maybe next time I visit her we could eat together.
Im wondering now whether I should go to bed and have an early night. Part of me says yes I should. Then part of me just wants to stay up for a while longer. Im not sure what I will do. I would like to read my book, so maybe I will just turn in for the night and do that.
Either way its been a nice day and I had a lovely time with my friend. I feel good and that’s a plus and a positive.
