I hear you!

My daughter's little girl was born last April and it was July before our doctor felt it was safe for me to hold my granddaughter. Last weekend we were able to have our oldest (3 years old) granddaughter for a sleep over. So I know what you're saying; can't wait till we get another chance with another grandkid.

Dan.   

Really need a home made pizza fix with her Dan. :thumbsup_anim:

Well not to side step this thread; but here's another reason to listen to your doctor about this virous and the vaccine. Meet my grandson born earlier this morning.   Mom and Baby are w

We've been going to the same Dr. for the last 40 years. When she calls (Which she does frequently, along with the occasional house call) and says get your butt in here for the vaccine; I'll be going.

I don't get the anti-media take on all this. Can anyone provide a logical reason, other than pandemic, that every country in the world has turned their economies into a manure pile?  I'm all ears!

HH  You say  " most if not all take it"

There are 37 million in Canada.

The health minister said  4  million doses from Pfizer and 2 million doses from

Moderna by March.

Someone will miss out.

Rick, there is a shortage of this seasons flu shot. My wife works at a Shoppers that will administer the shot. They made the same numbers of the vacine pre Covid-19 and this Fall most everyone wants the shot thus the shortage. Those with pre excisting conditions such as Diabetes, Cancer, heart decease and age to name a few will get this years vacine first. The same will go with the C-19 vacine.

That's recovery from the initial symptoms. Of the people I know that have had it (all healthy, relatively young people prior), all speak of a very long-haul to getting back to feeling 'normal', some things change forever (lung capacity), and another guy I know that had it in March just died a fatal heart attack...out of nowhere...dropped on the spot. There is growing evidence the virus has after-effects on the brain, heart, lungs, liver...etc. 

I'll get the vaccine. As stated, better to risk that than getting the virus...or living with the after-effects. 

Also...more evidence showing antibodies only last about 6-months in those that get it...so if you've had the virus it certainly doesn't mean you can't get it again. 

My Dr's are certain I had it back at the end of January. By the beginning of February I was sicker than I have ever been. It got worse from there. By the first week of March (the same time the first reported death of COVID in Canada happened) I had to go to emergency for the second time. I couldn't breathe and felt like I was dying. The emerg Dr thought I was having congestive heart failure. Lots of x-rays, tests later that was proven not the case. They didn't know what was going on. While there my BP spiked at 200/140 and my oxygen levels dropped to 80% at one point. After most of the day in there I stabilized and they sent me home. Still couldn't breathe.

My Sr sent me to heart and lung specialists had to fly to Edmonton for some of my heart tests. After all the tests they still found nothing. This virus does some weird things and they are only now starting to figure them out. I had severe chest pains and pain radiating down my left arm and across my collar bone for months, I couldn't breathe for months, my blood chemistry was completely screwed up. I had issues with my stomach, liver, heart and lungs.

My heart/chest pain finally subsided at the end of June. 5 1/2 months after I first got sick.

The stomach issues are still there, the blood issues worked themselves out with the help of a pile of prescriptions. 

I was so weak I could barely function for months. I'm now at 10 months since I first got sick and am still not 100%. I don't know when or if I will ever be.

I've had a headache for months, can't remember things and and can't concentrate.

But I hear some people say it's just the flu. 

It turns out I'm in a group of people that have had COVID symptoms for more than 90 days (2.2% of people that have had COVID). 

As of today I'm on day 311   😷 

I would bet $$$$$ that this thing has shortened my life. By how much I don't know.

OH, my arthritis is 2 to 3 times worse now as well. I can barely walk, my back has me doubled over most days. Cortisone shots in my spine have been helping but they only do a small section at a time. Each time I go I have to fly to Edmonton to get them done and then when I get back to Yellowknife I have to self isolate for 14 days because of the virus. As of December 20th I will have had to self isolate 48 days since the end of June. 

But it's OK, it's only the flu.

One more thing. With the numbers heading up again and lockdown's happening there are all those family members that we can't see now. Your loved one in the hospital dying of cancer, old age or some other ailment are going to die alone. You won't be able to be there comforting them.

Your mother, father or grand parents in the seniors home, long term care facility.

Nope, can't see them either. My dad moved into a long term care facility on March 12th. It was locked down on the 14th. He didn't see anyone outside of hospital staff until July. I could tell that it was really taking a toll on the old fella. Last Friday he passed away in University Hospital in London Ontario. Now I'm here in Ontario hoping I have some immunity to this COVID crap while I deal with pops estate and funeral. Luckily he was able to have visitors even though he was on a floor with COVID patients or he would have died alone.

stay safe and be well

Well first of all I am terribly sorry to hear about your dad, my condolences to you and your family. 

You sound like a mirror copy of what happened to me, months of problems, zero energy, feeling like I had been hit by a truck and yes, couldn't walk 50 yards to my mail box without having to sit down and catch my breath, it got so bad I actually went to bed and hoped I wouldn't wake up in the morning. I too have been through all the heart tests, x-rays,  breathing tests, blood pressure and heart rate through the roof..... I finally started feeling almost normal about the end of September,  I am still not 100% but then I am almost a year older too. (I'll be 75 in January) Today my breathing is pretty good, 95% O2 after walking about 100yards at a good clip wearing a mask (which I do find makes it harder to breath), my blood pressure is back down to an average of 130/70 which for me is pretty good (when I was really feeling bad it was up around 195/115 with heart rates around 100), I am back to sleeping about 7 hours a night, for a while it was 16 or more hours a day. I think I am one of the lucky ones, I seem to be getting better and stronger every day now. I hope your recovery is as good if not better than mine seems to be. Stay safe and god bless. 😊

This exact scenario is playing out with my friends dad right now. He is in the hospital very very sick and his family is not able to see him. He has been alone for two weeks with organs failing him and only one person every two days can see him for 3 hours. 
 

and with the new lockdown he may be totally cut off.

I'm sorry you guys have had a rough go, but I'm still not taking the vaccine. 

I don't feel I need it, and I don't want to add that crap to my otherwise perfectly fine immune system. 

I live rural, I stay to myself, and I don't like most people, so this isolating thing is nothing new to me. I can keep this up forever and not even blink an eye. 

Now with this lockdown, i have to worry about GTA'ers invading my small town, and bringing this crap out there. 

Its a gong show.

The 'vaccine' is a little less than the media is pushing forth according to Dr Fauci. Google "Fauci vaccine treats symptoms" to read his own words. VERY important perspective nobody has heard or been led to understand correctly....

Here is one article quoting him...

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8884031/Dr-Fauci-warns-early-COVID-19-vaccines-prevent-symptoms-not-block-infection.html

So from what I'm reading the proposed 'vaccines' are just able to treat symptoms rather than kill the virus. This is great since it will lessen the numbers of people dying from severe symptoms BUT the virus will still be spreading perhaps even more since people think they are vaccinated and then go visit Grandparents. WRONG decision!!!! The proposed 'vaccines' will increase the number of asymptomatic carriers who will unknowingly spread the virus more than before. 

Google it and several other Fauci interviews are available where he explains how symptoms will be treated by the first round of vaccines only. IMHO shouldn't be called a 'vaccine' but rather a 'symptom reducing medication'.

“The general consensus among health experts and government agencies is that the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, who are at a greater risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19, should get immunized first.“

Source: https://globalnews.ca/news/7468036/canada-coronavirus-vaccine-rollout/amp/

If the public health officials follow through on vaccinating the most vulnerable first, followed by the health-care workers etc, and if the vaccines work as hoped (that is, prime the recipient’s own immune system to be able to recognize the SARS-CoV-2 virus and thus ward off illness and severe illness if later exposed to the actual virus) a visit to a vaccinated grandparent should be safe, eventually.

We certainly hope that is eventually the case, because until then we all need to continue to rigorously follow the public health measures that are meant to reduce transmission (physical distancing from everyone outside your household/bubble, hand washing after touching surfaces, masking to limit droplet spread, minimizing exposure/transmission as much as possible by staying home if feeling unwell, and limiting in-person shopping to essential items.)

If/when there is an effective vaccine, your tactics can change to protecting yourself by getting your vaccination. It won’t matter if someone you know chooses not to get vaccinated as they can’t harm you after you are vaccinated, nor can they harm a vaccinated senior by their own personal choice to reject an available vaccine.

I agree MJIG. But I'll also advise we push to understand the other vaccine candidates that have/are being developed by other jurisdictions to find one that actually kills/stops the virus rather than treat its symptoms. I read a bit on the Russian vaccine and nothing on the Chinese one, but our MSM sure seem geared towards just promoting pushing the German/USA one and the USA one. The Russian one was given to front-line medical staff and the military so it would be good to follow along. Same with China.  

A California-based vaccine developer is currently being investigated since it was claiming some kind of great success so shares went up like 3000% and its CEO then sold his shares. Profit-driven vaccine is just fine if it works as we wish rather than as a CEO/BOD wishes.  

Oh I just Googled to find Russia claims its vaccine is 92% effective and it seems to develop antibodies that kill the virus. 

An older article re Russian vaccine from the BBC...

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-54036221

Here;s a BBC one on the Chinese vaccine where they have so few cases they are testing in other countries such as Brazil...or Argentina (don't recall), Turkey, etc.. China seems to have done extremely well re lockdown measures.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-54982910

Sorry about not including the china article last night. Somehow didn't get attached.

I really thought China would be first out of the gate with a vaccine, well, because they can do whatever they want, and they have the willpower. But now wondering if their problem with developing vaccine and trials is trying to find enough people who may get infected. Their draconian early clampdowns may actually harm them as the virus is probably not circulating as much, as in, oh I dunno, the US and UK. 

Also I'm of the understanding, so far, that while it may very well be effective in preventing deaths/ serious health problems, it doesn't necessarily mean that one can't infect people. So masking and distancing will still be important for those who get jabbed.

Big Dave Drifter, I hope you haven't permanent damage. It sounds like you beat the Grim Reaper. Remember what I said long ago about enjoying things while you can. 

Dave I missed where you said Dad passed. Our deepest condolences to you. We lost Mom and Dad within 8 months of one another about a year or so ago after living very long fruitful lives, 92 and 86 respectivley. My wife and I are glad that they didn't have to live through this covid thing sitting in thier apartment isolated from us all.

The second article I just added to my last post discusses the aspect of China going to other countries where enough people are virus exposed to determine results.
