    Yesssss!!! We just got her at 1:30 today! This is Athena. She is 5 years old. She had an unexpected surgery this morning to be spayed because another appointment was cancelled. So she is on the struggle bus for sure. Walks like she’s drunk. Pain meds and antibiotics for a bit.

    Quiet, shy, housebroken and looked terribly guilty for throwing up on the rug. I told her it was ok. She loves the backyard and watches the planes go overhead. The squirrels are sitting in the oak tree squawking like crazy. She keeps looking up at them.

    She appears to have been neglected and may have had puppies in the last year. Her skin is in rough shape. She came from a couple counties away. I suspect she’s had a rough time of it recently. She will blossom here I’m sure.

    Squueee! What a beautiful girl. Athena, you can relax now, little one. You’re in good hands and - as our vet tells each new arrival here - for the first time in your life, you’ve landed with your paws in the butter. ❤️

    We've stopped taking it now that we are negative for Corona Virus and our fevers lifted days ago, but we didn't have ANY of those side effects at all. All drugs have long lists of "possible" side effects, but some people also experience no side effects at all. Everyone needs to check with their dr for anything they take because everyone has different personal reactions, health conditions and other meds that may interact. MOO.

    Oh, I'm so glad that she has someone like you to love and take care of her. It sounds like your home and yard is just what she needs and just wait and see what she gives you in return!!

    I've been on the fence with my feeling about a national lockdown. We need it, should do it, but.....should we not let folks in areas with no active cases continue to work. We need production to continue for food and meat processing plants, factories making medical supplies, etc. Yes, restaurants and bars, social gatherings are a must, closing schools, nationwide, but each local community and state need to make those decisions.

    Yes, coming from the one who has a Governor who does NOTHING. The only way Virginia will close is if tbe President or Amazon does it. Amazon owns Northam.

    Mask Project Links:

    The mask posted by Deaconess Hospital is CDC approved design. Here is article that discusses this issue further:

    Coronavirus: Deaconess asks public to sew CDC-compliant face masks for staff

    Here is a FB Group based in Pacific NW (people from all over the US are part of the group) and they have a mask design and much information on their page. IDK if their mask is CDC compliant but it appears they have multiple medical places in the PNW signing up to take their masks. They have 2 patterns on the FB Page and videos for construction guidance.

    This is very sad, so much human misery, like the Turkish immigrants in Germany, Mexican immigrants in the United States, Haitians in Quebec, and many others in so many countries and states.
