    That's in case that there will be any checkpoints.
    I have the same thing, in my purse. In this tiny town, I doubt I would get stopped, but better safe than sorry.

    Thank you, Pat!
    I'm a little stressed about the close proximity to my co-workers, but there's nothing that can be done. Our manager suggested to stick with just one person for the day and use the same exam room, but it's just not possible. Each one of us will go with whoever needs help. In normal times, this sense of community is great.

    Haven't been out in over 3 weeks. My husband works so he is out. Someone came over and bought something we had on sale, Craigslist I think. The interaction was too bloody funny. Standing far apart, the whole shebang was weird. Anyway... this can't last forever. I need to go out more, I'm white as a sheet.

    I have an appt. on April 7 to get an X-ray and see how my bone graft is doing. It's at Jim Pattison Pavillion and I'm scared to go, I think I should cancel. I know I sound like a scaredy cat but I am hoping they will cancel the appt. for me as everyone is suppose to avoid public places. My husband thinks I should wear a mask and go. I'm scared, haven't left the house for at least 3 weeks and would it not be the worst place to go, a health Center where sick folks go? I know, bad idea. I'll cancel. I'm just a tad freaked. Sorry, just don't want to get a virus and potentially pass it on? I'm okay to tip off the raft whenever 😻😍😀👍🏿🤜🏻🤛 It's definately not a life or death sitchy, a mere x ray. Best to you all!! Would you do it?

    I have a prenatal appointment on 4/9 and I'm considering asking if we can switch it to telephone. I think they will say that they need to get my BP though. I don't know what's best...

    You could order a blood pressure monitor online. They're pretty compact and you can get one for around $ 20. And then you could do a telemedicine consult with your doctor.
    My insurance started covering telemedicine because of the pandemic.

    You should call them. A friend had a similar appointment, and that had her go in a separate entrance, so she was nowhere near the Covid wards, or the Emergency department. They literally set up a separate entrance and procedures for "other" patients.

    And if it is a "non-urgent" appointment, they may cancel it anyway, depending on the situation on the ground there. A call is definitely in order.

    A client made masks for us. I embellished mine with, what else, a cat.

    Thanks, great advice. I thought they would cancel it but that didn't happen. I thought I was fine but, I kept putting off cancelling it. I threw up this morning, I always do that when I'm freaked .... stupid, I know. Stress makes me vomit 😬 🤢🤤🙄 Then I thought they would charge me for the appt. because I didn't give 48 hrs. notice. They didn't care, my husband actually cancelled it for me because I refused to go 😜 He apparently said I had a cough and a fever so was not up for an X-ray and examination. 🤣😷🙊 Liar, liar, pants on fire 😻 He is definately hired as my secretary! He's easy on the eye as well 👍🏿 Normally I behave like a mature adult, ooooops. 🙈🙈🙈

    Everybody in our family is okay, I am very thankfull for that!
    It's already 6 weeks ago since we last saw our grandson Alexander....
    He is learning so much now....!I'm glad we have WhatsApp,
    !nOur daughter sends us many homevideo's of him.
    The last one was a 3 minutes long video showing Alexander while he was laughing and snickering almost all the time
    He is such a sweet ànd beautiful babyboy!! He wil be turning 10 months old on April 27th!
    I hope I may see him again soon....

    I would love to show some pictures of him, but for some unknown reason I cannot upload any pictures on PT anymore... (???)
    Please go to my Facebook page "Lut Lobeau"
    , where you will find tons of pictures

    That's wonderful, Lut, that you are in your new home now!

    Happy 10-month birthday soon to your grandson Alexander! What fun for you to watch him grow, even if just by WhatsApp right now.

    Is there anybody here who could help me with a private consultation? I tried to follow the step-by-step guide but failed. It seems to me that access is restricted from my area worldpostalcode.com/united-states/georgia/atlanta. Can it be the case? Or what else can cause this issue? Please write to my private messages to discuss if you have a free hour this or next week. Thanks in advance.
