Wishing your Dad a speedy recovery mate. I've had a horrendous year with my Dad suffering a sudden cardiac arrest and the knock on consequences of it. I know exactly how you're feeling. The worry and frustration is awful. 💚
Hope your Dad makes a speedy recovery Kenny

My dad went in to the western a couple of weeks back for a big cancer op, went well and he was recovering slowly. Over the last 18 months he's been very diligently following rules and mitigating any risks of covid. After all that time isolating/shielding and a big operation he's caught Covid when in the fucking hospital. Feel gutted for him, he's now in a side room, no visitors allowed, his mental health being affected by the lack of interaction. Nightmare.
That’s awful, hope he feels better soon

That’s horrible Mark, reminds me of my dad, in the old Royal after a stroke, caught MRSA. My Ma, a month after my Dad had his stroke was diagnosed with brain cancer, was taken in tae Liberton hospital. They widnae move my Dad up tae Liberton because of his MRSA. Eventually 2 weeks later they move him, same ward, in a side room, my Ma died a week later, my Dad 3 weeks after her.
Hope your Dad gets better quick bud.

There’s no appropriate words. Thoughts with you.

We got a message for the management at work yesterday asking us to stringently follow the covid protocols they have in place.
West Lothian positive cases are the highest they have ever been!
Had the 1st positive case in my department since the pandemic started and whole departments/shifts have been isolating.

My sympathy and thoughts to @southfieldhibby @Smurf and @hibbybilly.
Don’t forget our esteemed Bouncer and legend @1875.
I visited him this week (just to get my Tiny ticket to be honest)
A man who can barely move off the settee, and has to rely on others to feed clothe and wash him. Fuckin sad. And that was before he got ill.
On the bright side, Covid has made little difference. He’s still a lazy *&*^ and since Covid prevents you shaving apparently he looks like a fuckin yeti.

Bet his ‘just back’ is still class though.

That goes without saying @1875 is a legend.
On a very very rare serious point Mark's just backs are a lifeline to those of us who are unable to make it to the games.
To the best of my knowledge I've only met 4 bouncers all gentlemen even you

Sorry to hear about you Dad M. Keep in touch with him as much as you can. If you need anything, just shout.

Listened to the woman who led the team that created the Oxford jab on the radio. She was talking about booster jabs and said it’s far more important that folk get flu jabs. You really really do not want to get rona and flu at the same time.

Probably my hardest week in Nursing I care to remember. #covid is relentless again at the moment. Patients are really sick, of all ages and we are doing our best to save every single one. The staff in @204Rie are beyond heroes and deserve far more than claps and pay rises."

Scary stuff and especially when they are talking about lifting restrictions etc. Plus, this is before the 'normal' winter viruses kick in... :wondering:

Hope you're ok. If you don't have one it might be worth getting hold of a blood oxygen monitor. That can give you a bit of early warning just in case.

My daughter tested positive on a lateral flow on Sunday and confirmed by PCR yesterday. The rest of us tested negative.

As someone slowly recovering from it, coughing and breathlessness are both common symptoms I still have. I would go down and get a PCR, don't rely on the home tests.
