    Coming home from the hospital yesterday, my face sore from wearing a mask all day long, trying to figure out some shred of sense of all of this death and destruction. People's lives altered and President T trying to hold it all together, whilst Demon Rats are licking their lips just waiting to pounce on anything to get them ahead. Im so pissed off right now....

    Just an Update...
     
    Last week # of cases in hospital = 22     out of others tested-16% positive
    This week # of cases in hospital = 42     out of others tested-19% positive
     
    Really, really bad...but not apocalyptic.
    May not have hit peak yet.
    Patience, keep vigilant.
    Take care of each other.
    Exposure means everything. If you are not exposed to it, you will not get it. Minimize.
    Keep in mind, every week that goes by, more people are tested, so that will skew the results a bit. Rapid testing will allow us to catch up to this monster.
     
    Stay safe....

    Just an example of The People of Northern Illinois and what they do...
     
    Many restaurants and lay people have catered food to the ER's in the area for the employees on the front line.
     
    There were banners put up near the entrances of the hospitals to thank the MD's and RN's and all other involved personnel recognizing them and giving them a well-deserved moral boost before their shifts...
     
    The public alerted the hospitals that they would like to start to make donations to support the effort to eradicate this as quickly as possible. Despite probably among the highest property taxes in the nation, they have opened up their hearts to give whatever they can to assist everyone.
     
    Out of bad comes good....Out of darkness comes light...Everyone coming together...

    The Intolerable Acts
    In 1773 England passed the Intolerable Acts, which reached the New World in 1774. These acts were directed at Boston as punishment for their famous tea party in which all of the tea was split overboard by colonists dressed as Indians. These acts allowed the British to blockade Boston’s harbor, and put an embargo on trade in the same colony.
    Gadsden may have been discouraged by his colony’s earlier failure, but as soon as he heard about Boston’s lack of food, he personally began coordinating relief efforts for Boston from multiple colonies and sent it to the starving people of Boston by land. He wrote to  Adams, “We depend on your [f]irmness, and that you will not pay for an ounce of the damn’d Tea.” (Cummins 85-89).
    Gadsden never gave up. He continued working to undermine the corrupt British tyranny with all his strength. His fellow colonists noticed this zeal and elected him as the South Carolina representative of the 1775 Continental Congress.
    The famous John Quincy also picked up on his boldness, and wrote Gadsden was “plain, blunt, hot, and incorrect, and very sensible. Meekness was not one of his Christian virtues.”
    As one of America’s earliest patriots, Gadsden stood up for his beliefs and his fellow Americans. He was by no means afraid to show his true colors. Perhaps this is why the famous Don’t Tread On Me flag is a solid, bright yellow.
    This flag is Gadsden’s take on Franklin’s snake metaphor, depicting a coiled snake on a yellow field, with the warning “DONT[sic] TREAD ON ME” printed below it. Mr. Gadsden created this purely American icon to be used by the first American navy, which he not only supported, but also paid for.
    Gadsden’s actions and beliefs were two great driving forces of the American Revolution and the Navy only added to the strength of the Continental army.
    Gadsden’s Don’t Tread On Me flag was later adopted by Virginia’s Culpeper minutemen, who added the phrase “Liberty or Death” to the flag, while printing it on a plain white field.
    Today Gadsden’s flag seems to be making a comeback. The modern Tea Party has adopted it, second amendment activists practically use it as a blanket, and where I live, it is flown from tailgates everywhere.
    Why is the Don’t Tread On Me flag so popular? The motto of the flag says it in a single, patriotic statement. There is no opinion contained in the Gadsden flag’s message, it is simply an all inclusive banner stating, ‘Step on us, and you’ll regret it.’
    Everyone can learn something from Gadsden: to create positive change, you must be willing to do whatever it takes. Everything from quitting an addiction, to keeping a corrupt politician out of office, to raising awareness on a moral issue, requires guts, strength, and willpower. If something really is important to you, try doing things the way our fathers would have; with integrity, with transparency, and the perseverance of a patriot.

    Some TRUTH about COVID-19.
     
    I work in a hospital in Chicago. As of yesterday, there are 22 patients that absolutely have COVID-19. NO DEATHS as of yesterday. There were about 1500 tests done. 17% of these were positive.  No doctors or nurses have passed away. They are having us wear N-95 masks/gown/gloves/bunny suit/shoe covers because this virus is more contagious than influenza because it has an incubation period of 12-14 days, therefore, you could be a carrier and not know it. It is passed more easily because of this. Healthcare workers are wearing these things to also protect other patients from getting it from us! This is why staying away from others is recommended. This is an equal opportunity virus. (Sorry young people).  This is the reason why we have such a lag in time with information and it is harder to get in front of the virus. The absolute best thing that you can do is BUILD UP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM!! Vitamin C, D,  Zinc, plenty of non-dehydrating fluids. SLEEP!!!! Eat well...NO JUNK FOOD!!! Keep a good GUT! This is where  a large part your immunity lies in addition to your lymphatic system. Try to eat organic fruit that has a lot of vitamin C, like berries/oranges. Elderberry syrup is good for kids that will not eat fruit. If you can't get organic, try to get fruit with thick skins and wash them well. Bananas/avocados are good examples. DO NOT SKIP MEALS!! If you have to at least drink a juice or already made protein shake if you cannot eat. (Except for diabetics). For you guys, try to get a protein shake without sugar. Some people swear by Colloidal Silver.  I do not have experience with that. Exercise mildly if you can. Do not over stress your body. You cannot overdose on Vitamin C if your kidneys are working well. At LEAST 8 hours sleep per night, if not more. WASH YOUR HANDS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!!!  If you cannot, try to have at least 70% alcohol based hand sanitizer. Try to get some masks/ rubber gloves and while you are out, try to keep one clean hand, and one dirty hand. (We use that technique in the hospital sometimes). Use paper towels instead of towels to dry your hands. I am right handed, so I keep my right hand clean and my left hand dirty if absolutely needed. Keep wipes in your car and use them wherever your hands touch.  Even at the ATM! Watch the mail that you bring in. Open it with gloves and throw it out including cardboard boxes, asap. Try to avoid crowds as much as possible, and if you cannot, get out of the crowded area as soon as you can. If you live in a building, watch what you touch and DO NOT touch your face! In my building, I have been cleaning off any surface that hands touch. If everyone in my building stays in good health, so will I. We all have to think of each other too! If you know of a senior, check on them. Help your neighbors if they need it, but just be careful for you both. TRY TO BUILD AN IMMUNE SHIELD AROUND YOUR BODY!!  Keep clean with showers/baths frequently. If some virus gets on your hair, you can shower and get rid of it. That way, if you have protection, but maybe make a mistake and touch your face, your immunity will take over. Be careful of your eyes as well. Viruses can enter there too. Wear some glasses if you go out.  The ambulances in Chicago are using a product that uses UV radiation to disinfect the ambulance after a COVID-19 patient was in there and after each call. It is actually made by a "Pet company" named "Petairapy". It kills all cells and I believe they make more than one kind of unit. I think they have HVAC as well.
    It completely kills the virus in about 5 minutes. It is really amazing. Here is a link to the story:
     
    https://abc7chicago.com/6050035/
     
    It could work in a hospital/nursing home/school very easily!
    The company is located in St. Charles, Illinois.
     
    Do not listen to Alex ones too much. It will just stress you out. Listen to music to calm you.
     
    Remember, the countries that are getting hit the most are the ones like us that have big cities where people are close together. Countries that have people spread out will be a lot less. It is difficult to get someone sick if you are not around them. Hence, just do what you absolutely need to.  A vaccine may not help you if they try to develop one. The influenza vaccine is not matched most of the time and is not extremely effective. Not  only that, but vaccines have adjuvants, some that are forms of mercury ( thimerosal) and preservatives/aluminum and actually may lower your immunity.
     
    JUST USE YOUR COMMON SENSE AND YOU WILL BE FINE!!!!
     
    So....this thing is avoidable and not forever! It can be killed like any other virus. It just hangs around longer on surfaces and in the air. They said 3 hours in the air and 3 days on surfaces. Clean all of the surfaces where hands go.  Mom's have to be vigilant like they are warriors! So, men support your women!! The smallest effort on your part will be greatly appreciated!! Remember women feel like the "caretakers" of everyone, and if they need a day off or a massage, DO IT!! ** Use common sense and do not be afraid. It will pass. The more careful we are, the sooner this thing goes away and we go back to normal.** Take care of your mental state! Your body and mind is connected closely and you need to think and stay positive! I meditate daily with" Jason Stephenson" on YouTube with his guided mediations. They are so relaxing, I fall asleep every time. If you know that someone is positive (or think that they may be) , get them to the ER if they cannot breathe OR if they feel like they are getting sicker very quickly, or if they are high risk (underlying diagnosis like Diabetes/heart disease/lung issues) and try to mask them if possible. Some of the hospitals are using HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN with some success on the most critical cases and early cases if they can.
    If you have heart disease, these meds may cause arrhythmia so BE CAREFUL WITH THAT!!
     
    My hospital HAS NOT BEEN OVERWHELMED!!! I live near a LARGE CITY!!! CHICAGO!!  So....be vigilant and take care of each other. DO NOT BE AFRAID and everyone will be complaining about their jobs really soon! Just think of this as an unexpected vacation that you spend to clean your house, car, and sort out those bills that you have been avoiding for a while!! 
    If you have FAITH, PRAY....Never a bad idea.... SPEND TIME WITH YOUR CHILDREN!! Look at this as we are going through this for a reason that we do not understand. All bad has goos and vice-versa. This is LIFE and the way that you handle it is VERY IMPORTANT!!
    I am not sure what is going on in New York, but my best guess would be that they do have more cases because of the size and location that they are in. I see all different numbers on the TV so it is really hard to know what that truth is, so I will not comment on that.
    As for the stores, people were panicking and toilet paper, milk, and bread were hard to come by, but since the beginning of the week, the shelves are stocked again. I always have emergency food/supplies/money  just in case, so that gives me solace.
     
    <DON'T ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE ON TV> They are humans like us and DON"T always get the stories correct. Everyone is under pressure right now, so expect things to be off.
     
    I hope this helps some people...I will pray for everyone daily. STAY STRONG!!!!
