Mu Mother is 86 yrs of age. She is currently in a nursing facility in New Jersey. It is a relief. She is unable to facetime nor text me . I yearn to hug her and visit with her. Bringing her all of her hearts desires to the facility. I speak with by phone 3 to 4 times per day. I am under quarantine per my doctor due to me helping other elders by transporting them to the hospital for care and church attendance. This has hindered me from ordering food from the grocery stores and getting prepared meals. The prepared meals received are delectable and an added blessing. My gym has closed where i am paying for a membership that I am unable to use. Dr.’s appointments have been cancelled so my health maybe at risk or in a deficiency. I,no longer, can help the elders in my apartment complex. as a result of my quarantine.
