I received a few emails from readers telling me that a post I wrote back in 2018 had popped up in their blog mail. Honestly, I have no idea what happened or why it happened. I did clean up my list of back posts a few days ago, deleting those which related to old "new" releases of my books. I must have clicked on the wrong button, prompting the pushing of an old post. Please, disregard it as the topic is probably no longer relevant.
I hope you are all doing well. I have been pretty much house bound since the Covid situation began. With Christmas around the corner and the thought of spending it alone weighing on my mind, I decided to take a chance and travel to my grandchildren in Miami. I have not seen them in a year, and my granddaughter keeps begging me to come.
Of course, I protect myself as much as I can, but it's a serious risk I take. For one, my grandchildren went back to physical school last week. They will come home eager to hug and kiss and sit at my side to watch TV and play video games. At school, as hard as the administration tries, it is impossible to keep the students apart. There will be increased positives, and the chance of contagion will rise for me.
I am over sixty. There will not be ten doctors waiting hand and foot on me or an entire ward dedicated to me. I will not be cared for in the top military hospital in the world. There will be no experimental drug for me. If I die, I will do so alone, drowning in my own fluids, without the comfort of a hand to hold my own. I do worry.
I do believe the situation will get better soon because a vaccine cannot be far off. I don't care what anyone says; I will be first in line for it. It's not the idea of dying that scares me. I am not as terrified of death as you might think. It's the idea of dying in such an agonizing, lonely way which scares me.
New topic: I am now working on Volume 6 of my Vampires in the Mist series. The first two volumes are now on Kindle Unlimited, so if you have a membership, I encourage you to read them. Things are changing by leaps and bounds for Rose, the main character, and getting intense! You know me: no topic is off limits. One thing I can guarantee: you will hate the villain.
