    Maybe the COVID-19 outbreak reaches a peak and then ebbs off, or at least that's what it seems to be doing in China--if this account is believable:

    I think it started to “ebb off” because China finally started practicing the recommended behaviors we are now taking here...although it took a while for us because so many in this country were told the pandemic was a hoax...

    I was thinking that people like us have a head start in adjusting to being isolated....finally, something I can do better than most!

    Just testing my effort to change the picture that shows up with my posts.

    I thought Munich’s paining The Scream would be good to use. I have a coloring book from the Chicago Art Institute.....keeps me busy and happy to color!

    I hope you are able to get your IVIG, Sunshine.

    My gyn cancelled a routine appointment for mid-May. And I got an email saying most other appointments will be tele-medicine. I’ll miss a primary care, ENT and Derm appointment. Nothing crucial. Best practice is to stay home.

    I had a tiny filling come out of my tooth and wanted it put back in. Had already decided not to go now, but got my confirmation last night when Lester Holt did a show having on some very good experts. People were sending in questions and Dental appointments was one of the questions. The short answer was a firm "NO".

    What I have read is that the Wuhan Virus started to slack off in China when they really cracked down on their people going anywhere. Being an autocratic government they can do that pretty easy. Hong Kong which is about 50 miles off the coast of China and also The Philippines did not fair so bad because they cracked down on social contact right away.

    Things are not looking good here right now. I wish everyone would stay at home like I think all of us are.

    If the tooth isn't bothering you, why not let it wait a while? But infections can start up where a filling has fallen out, and sometimes only an Xray will show that happening though eventually you'd notice a problem.

    You might want to call your dentist's office and ask about that tooth and its filling. They might be able to tell you how long you can safely wait.

    (Speaking here from quite a bit of experience with lost fillings and dentists. I haven't yet found the right pair of pliers to be my own dentist the way some talented people here do.)

    Agate, I think the Dentist office might be closed except for emergencies. They are asking Dentist to donate some of their stock of mask, gloves and personal covering. However, even if they are open I don't like the idea of anything being put in my mouth or anyone getting as close as the Dentist would need to. That is also the reason I am not going to my eye doctor. He gets very close when examining my eyes.

    Hope Sunshine can get her IVIG and that they will not have anyone close to her.

    Did y'all know my Rebif is made in Italy? It has never been made in the U.S. I am wondering if there will be a problem getting it in the coming months. Every box I have had in nearly 20 years has had "made in Italy" on it.

    :) I too have a tooth that has a hole in it but no pain so I think it is an old nerve removed tooth. I do not intend to go until this virus runs its course.

    Sunday is my 79th birthday and Andy and Torre are going to come and bring me a dinner. I worry a little that Torre works cleaning houses for several different people. I just hope there has been no exposure yet. I will not have any more people other than Andy come from now on.

    When Andy shopped Friday he bought two weeks worth of food so we may skip next week's trip. I am playing computer games and sleeping a lot. Even though I seldom go out knowing I cannot go is strange. I always had the option when I felt good. Take care everyone and stay safe.

    I am praying for all the medical personnel taking care of patients and for all the people who have the virus. Jeanie :)

    Jeanie, even though I didn't go out a lot, just knowing that I could and now can't makes a big difference. I cancelled nail appointment yesterday.

    Today, I drove to the Post Office and put a birthday card for my younger brother in the outside box. I also picked up my mail. I had not gotten it out of the mailbox since Monday. I was getting it more often when Laura was coming, because she got it once and I got it once. Everything seems still and quite.
