Still got 'yer smile on, I see!

But as a Brit, you're in good company -- or not, as befits your politic.

Both my grandfathers survived the 1918 flu. One, a purebred Viking, signed up at just seventeen, and fell ill while in Britain near the end of WWI. His pic is in my Sig.

Write every day if you wish. I will reply with diligence, if not a bit of irreverence.

Grazie, I will keep you in my prayers. Get well soon. My 14 year old granddaughter who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and is tube fed since born was in the isolation unit in a hospital in New Jersey, USA with COVID-19. She was admitted on March 14. It was touch and go, they put her in an induced coma on a ventilator and antibiotics for a few days. She has survived and is getting released today. You got this my friend.

james-ollick, I am glad to hear your granddaughter is doing well. This is a nasty one, good health to you Grazie. And everyone stay safe. My wife is particularly vulnerable because of COPD. I am trying to be as safe as is possible.

Here's to a speedy recovery Grazie!

It's rough. I've been having breathing issues since just before New Year's Day (I ended up moving house thinking it was a reaction to an allergen, which seems to have helped some), so I'm hoping I do not come down with this as well, my lungs aren't ready for a fight right now. Staying at home as much as possible.

Sorry to hear you caught it Grazie and hope you are back to normal soon. Down here we have only a few deaths but are in lockdown. An eerie experience.
