due to the COVID-19 pandemic for this month are increasing.
My massage on March 3 was canceled due to my recent Norovirus, but I missed a birthday party for a nurse I work with on Friday because of COVID concerns. I changed my Pediatric Advanced Life Support class to a smaller one. The Allman Betts Band concert we were going to go to Saturday is canceled, and this was my Christmas present from Tom. His uncle’s celebration of life on Sunday is off. And my planned 4 day birthday trip to Oregon is done too. So far the equipment auction on Saturday has not been canceled so Tom may try to carefully go to that with appropriate distancing and hygiene. And at this moment we will have sheep shearing on Friday provided nobody gets ill. I have canceled my long planned British breakfast though.
These changes are minor compared to the chaos, hardships and pain that this virus has caused, but I still would like to briefly mourn what we have had to give up.
