    I hope your patients can still hear your rather sexy voice with it on. Stay safe.

  8. My daughter, an RN, is one of the mask fitters at the hospital where she works. I never knew there was such a thing, until just the other day when she mentioned it. I'm praying that she will never have to become a bandanna fitter if they run out of masks. The US Center for Disease Control suggested bandannas if we run out of masks for our medical personnel. I haven't spoken to my daughter for a few days to see if they have gotten in any more of the N95 masks at the hospital where she works. I hope they have.

    In the past she worked in the adult ICU section where most of the people were in their last days of life, and many had multiple communicable diseases. I didn't worry about that as much as I do this Covid virus, that has no treatment, and no cure so far.

    She has been in a completely different area of specialty for a year or two now, and is very worried that she will be called back into adult ICU again. I am praying that she won't be.

    Take care,John.

  9. My eye doctor, a young man with a bushy beard, shaved it all off so the mask would fit better. He wanted to be ventilator ready and so will keep the beard off for a while. Stay safe, John.

  10. If you had a black felt-tipped pen you could draw a grinning mouth on that mask - like Jack Nicholson as The Joker.

      You have a very warped sense of humour Yorkshire Pudding. There is nothing remotely funny about Covid-19. I wonder if you would find it fun to see medical staff in their masks tending to your loved ones.

    2. I don't think this would go down very well in the Hospice environment that John works in :-(

  12. "Who was that masked man?" "I don't know, but I wanted to thank him."

  13. Hard to imagine the hospice environment. Mask near other people good for both.

  16. Uncomfortable I imagine, but so necessary. Stay safe, John. Can you wear it to go to Sainsbury’s as well?

    Whatever it takes to stay safe. Do your glasses fog up?

  18. I'm so confused about whether I should wear a mask when out walking or grocery store. Some experts? say yes, some say no, some say won't protect you, some say masks only for healthcare workers. Thus far, I'm only wearing surgical gloves and keeping safe distance from others when out and about.

  19. I went to Tesco today with rubber gloves on and a 3 layered mask that I made myself.Not many people were wearing them but I felt generally they were being very sensible.The trolley handles were wiped down as we entered by staff with masks.Not sure if mine was any use at all though x

  20. Blimey, that looks like a pretty heavy-duty, impregnable mask. It's scandalous that so many health workers still aren't getting the PPE they desperately need.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm glad you are prepared.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm glad you've gotten it.
    Seriously, it's outrageous that health professionals are facing this pandemic with so little support. Ugh.

  23. The governor of Georgia (U.S) explained on TV that all his medical staff were sewing zillions of mask covers out of surgical draping (?) to wear over their fancy masks. The covers are washable and can be traded off as you go from one patient to the next, and allow longer safe use of the "good" mask. (He said a workday but my impression is that many are having to use them longer.)
    My take on wearing a mask outside is that everyone should wear them because 1) You might be pre-symptoms but contagious, and they do help control your infecting others, and 2) most of the transmission is in droplets, many of which should snag on even a couple of layers of cotton or whatever, and cutting down on amount of droplets received may be enough to allow your immune system to gear up. And statistically some (unknown, possible small) proportion of people will not get the virus because they wore a mask, which may not help you, but helps the curve overall. (Sorry, I taught statistics all my working life)

    That all said, the health care workers should get all the professional masks, we can make do with bandannas etc. along with taking care by washing, distancing, staying home.

  24. I am wearing a mask and gloves when I go grocery shopping, mainly to remind me not to touch my face. I was appalled at how often I touched my face in one day. Yes, I was bored one day in this lock down and made it my chore for the day to check how often I touched my face! That being said I agree with Sally S that it will stop droplets being splashed around hopefully keeping me and anyone who is too close safe. Yours looks like one that will leave bruises if worn too long ..never the less, be safe.

  25. Good, I glad you have a fitted mask.

  26. Looking spiffy.

    I had to go and get swabbed on Friday, and just wearing a normal surgical mask for the 15 minute walk to the GPs just about made me pass out, and I got all hot and sweaty wearing it. The good thing, it was negative for Covid just a seasonal cough and SOB thing.

  27. Did you have to shave off your beard?

    This is the happiest moment of my life having no longer to worry about paying bills as i have been settled for life. A lot has been said about atm hacking and blank card for cash withdrawal but it all seemed like a myth to me until i eventually lost my job few months back and the world seemed to be moving backwards. I went online in search of jobs and means to an end and there i found comments about blankatmdeliveryxpress and how they deliver this card in less than 7 days with no risk involved and a far much lesser price compared to what the card itself can give you, i then made contact and purchase one from them with almost my last dollars I took the risk and in exactly 6 days latter my card and a manual was delivered to my home address here in California and that same evening i used the card was able to take out $5000 for a start its been just 3 weeks and my life has taken a new shape. I simply want to say thank you to this electronic company and help spread their fame abroad. If you ever are in need of this card contact them via email :blankatmdeliveryxpress@gmail.com
    Don't mail them if you not really ready for this card is gonna cost you money to buy the card note that,they offer card to firms, orphans,individual and business personnels mail them immediately .

  33. Marriage restoration..Stop your marriage from breaking apart today. I lost my husband to another woman 2 weeks ago after 27 years of marriage . We had a lovely marriage but he started a relationship with a co worker who chased after him . He is living away near his work and her and refuses to talk to me or to come home . I am devastated and am finding it hard to cope . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't . I don't know how to stop feeling like this I wish I didn't as its eating me away and I m starting to feel ill. I have degraded myself begging him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Chief Dr Lucky can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Chief Dr Lucky. If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details,Email him at: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348132777335 Website :  http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/
