In family and health news: my daughter, son in law and granddaughter are over covid. My oldest has it again (I think this is the third time) and it looks like my mom and dad have it too. My sister thinks she had it a week or two ago. It is crazy contagious and amazing Kathy and I have not caught it, but with all my medical appointments I feel like it won't be long. Hazel starts daycare next week so we may pick it up from her (and Hannah starts a new job too) so our exposure will be greater. I have enough issues without that on top of it. Not sure if I told you guys but my RRMS was changed to PPMS. They originally thought I had PPMS, then decided I did not and now the new neuros think that was what I originally had. Of course, that is the worse type and I have been on meds that do not help the other type which explains my downward spiral somewhat. I have now started PT and OT and they are putting in for a scooter (I got a walker already) so I can get around if I need to. May your health be good!

Currently reading "Hamnet," "The Odyessey," "The Twelve Days of Bookmas," and Violetta from Netgally. Also listening to "Maybe in Another Life."
My daughter has Covid (and likely my granddaughter though so far not her hubby). We seem to have escaped it (though early yet to know) and we went ahead with our finally scheduled Booster shots yesterday. Hitting Kathy harder than me as usual. My MS keeps my body busy. I am having new symptoms and finally saw my new neuro and his fellow. They have changed my diagnosis to Primary Progressive Multiple Schlerois (PPMS) and will change my medication. The meds I have been on do not help with this type (the worse type) of MS. Lucky me. Three times a week burning shots for several years and they were not even helping me. Shaking my head. Grateful to have switched my PCP to a good doctor who referred me to these guys. Things are going to improve from here. They already started me a new med for my leg pain and are getting approval for anther to help me walk. Next up, infusions. I got my new walker too. I just need to sit and rest a lot but hopefully can do a few more things now that I have it--once Covid calms down.

I just finished "Bitter Orange" this morning. Such a trippy book! I really liked it though not sure I know what is what from it!
I got these from Goodwill and then realized that I just finished listening to "The Address" and loved it so I wanted more Fiona Davis books. Oops, all but that one. Haha!
My cousin sent me this picture of Bella with her baby quilt I sent her years ago when she was born. She still uses it!

I started reading "The Oddysey" yesterday with the Ecclectic Book Club. On the third book and liking it SO much better than "The Illiad." I am also reading "Hamnet" with a small group and loving that one!

I really enjoyed the book above (just finished it today) and am looking forward to the second book in the series.
