Words of Wisdom: Elderly Parents on Aging.

So, a total knee replacement is in dievca’s future. But, the chipped knee cap and the floating bone piece, and the osteoarthritis behind the kneecap are the culprits for the current swelling and ligament strains.  Physical Therapy, 1st.  If that’s not enough, removal of bone chip 2nd.  dievca is looking to get into a study for cartilage replacement – maybe? Then knee replacement 4th?

As dievca’s Mom said, “It’s hell to get old.”‘

dievca’s Dad said, “Just keep moving!”

Or is everyone streaming content? Netflix, AppleTV, peacock, Disney+, etc.
Does broadcast television exist anymore?
Where does one start when you haven’t watched a “show” in years?
dievca was working under the theory that she would watch TV when her body couldn’t move anymore.
she’d catch up on all the movies she hadn’t seen or watch “Sex in the City” for the 1st time.
Now there is too much content.
she’s frozen.
Analyze to Paralyze…

God, is the World passing dievca by? or can she catch a ride on the next trend?

Anyone out there feeling the same?


COVID-19 navigating the City

The subways are empty but if a train is full, everyone gives one another the beady-eye.
Haven’t seen any sick people on the go.
The streets are young.
Many people working from home.
Some people put on furlough.
Some empty shelves in the grocery stores, but toilet paper is available.
Restaurants in action about 75% full.
Quiet.
