Faith, so glad you test was negative. I heard Dr. Fauci saying just last night that there are a couple of vaccines that could be approved by the end of this year. They are already producing them in hopes that they will be approved. He said the first bunch would go to the health care workers but he also mentioned those most vulnerable. I would think you would fit into that category. A lot will depend on your doctor's recommendation when that time comes. Probably for the general population it could be a long time later but we really won't know like so many uncertainties. I do have good news. I sent what is hopefully the last forms to the VA, I got my Mom's VA bank account set up and I got her retroactive check and got that deposited. Now I will wait and be sure the fax was received and it will be a smooth transition from one bank to another. Last night when I thought I was all done I just felt like crying that this whole uphill battle getting her some needed financial assistance was finally over. I still had more work to do on the forms today and now I feel more relief than anything that hopefully it is finally done.
I am possibly going to go back downstate since the weather looks a little more promising. The outside visits at this nursing home are not ideal as the visitors stand at a fence to be able to talk to their loved ones in the courtyard. My Mom will be 95 on Monday and I cannot possibly see myself not going at this point.
Have a good night dear sisters.
