    Ah Pinga. I have missed you here, but I chat with you on FB so I have always felt that our relationship continued beyond WC2. I appreciate the bit about coming and going. While I never had the role you did in WC/WC2 I was an active poster for many years. I have pulled back off and on over the...

    Our beloved Matthew passed away

    I have always been fairly open about our life with Matthew here on WC2, and previously on WC. Matthew had a rough winter and died of complications of a respiratory infection early Sunday morning (not COVID). Here is a copy of his obituary. I have removed some confidential information - but...

    Novel Coronavirus

    I find the conversation about expected spread interesting. These days I am in the ICU daily with Matthew. He is still on a ventilator. He has been moved twice in the last couple of days as the ICU is repeatedly configured. There are now several positive and presumptive ICU patients with...

    Random acts of music

    I shared this on facebook earlier this week. Right now I can't pray. I cannot find the words. This made a difference.

    I think it is reasonable to expect that there will be restrictions in place for several months. How strict those are depends on how much we limit the spread.

    For f***s sake stop it. Just stop it. Do you you know what else the Bible says - Matthew 7:12 - be kind to others as you would wish they would be kind to you. People are scared. I am scared. Stop smugly telling us that if we just knew Jesus like you knew Jesus then things might be different -...

    Novel Coronavirus

    "Sadly, probably true. An infectious disease specialist I heard interviewed (and I've heard similar projections from others) says that given the current trends the peak of the virus won't be until around the second week of May, followed (hopefully) by a slow decline." Crap. That means we may...

    Novel Coronavirus

    Based on the conversations I am hearing here in the ICU, they expect the numbers to start ramping up next week.

    AAARG. No idea what I just did with that previous post. Sorry.

    This. I have always disagreed with "competitive suffering" In my opinion that approach often lead to more hurt. No one wins when we play that game. Among the special needs parenting community there are a few parents who really engage in that practice. "Your kid has a feeding tube? Well, mine...

    Novel Coronavirus

    I wish I knew how to respond. Today at ICU rounds the team was talking about how everyone is trying to help. Med students who are off class are madly reviewing all the research and providing summaries to docs on the front lines. Nurses are are volunteering to take extra shifts. There are...

    Novel Coronavirus

    At the moment I am probably one of the best protected people around. I am in full protective gear in a negative pressure room with my son. Interestingly, yesterday they did not test for COVID because he didn't fit the pattern - no travel, or contact with a confirmed case. Today, now that we...

    HI all. Sadly we're checking in from the ICU, where Matthew is on a ventilator. He's being tested for COVID.

    Jean Vanier sexually abused at least six women.

    Yeah. I was desperate to call in, but I had to go teach. Darn that job thing!
