Addendum to the Maryland Situation

Physical Therapy is the Highlight of My Day

Maryland is doing pretty well with flattening the curve. I have heard that we have a positivity rate of 9.5% which is the lowest since the beginning of April. In our zip code we have had only 39 cases. We have gone to Phase II of reopening - we can eat outdoors at restaurants.

Our governor jumped on the problem immediately - my daughter said he had an advantage in that he just got done with chemotherapy for cancer and he understood what an infection would do to him. It seems strange to think of cancer as an advantage but I guess you could look at it that way.

I am still doing physical therapy for my hip - or rather I have started doing it again. I stopped in March and we picked it up again in June. Half of the visits are done on the computer. The visits in person are the only time I see someone who isn't a doctor, other than my husband

I went to the dermatologist Monday and she took two biopsies of my face. I don't think either were cancer, but she hasn't gotten back to me yet.

Hi Rosalie, glad to hear your state is doing well. This is one awful disease to get rid of. Our numbers are going up again in Hong Kong. It comes and goes in waves.

I expected that after the "flattening" that there would be a second peak. Maybe we have not reached it yet here in Maryland. I said at the beginning that we shouldn't expect this should be over until next year sometime and everyone thought I was too pessimistic.
