Moving Complications or The Things You Never Think Of

A household with two people suffering a neurological brain disorder… I have witnessed much.  I soon realized we have to rethink our attitudes toward illness and old age.  Above all – we have to stop the cruel practice of isolation.

I  still have not been able to blog.  I am sorry.   Shelly has been with a respiratory infection  due to dust.  Today –  finally – the fever has come down.   So not to worry.  He is recovering quickly.

I tried to keep things clean during the move.    The new apartment was spotless.  And most importantly –  dust free.  But that was not enough.   Carton boxes apparently carry bacteria.  Also  the movement of people with moving equipment, dirty shoes,  covering cloths are all a risk.

Now in our new nest  all the bookcases  full of  books are covered with sheets .  The sheets have to be washed at least once a month.  Objects , including  framed  photos, sculptures are removed and stored.  Whatever is left is  dusted daily with a damp cloth.   It is  impossible to create a sterile environment at home but extra effort is necessary for  even  basic cleanliness.

The new blog is on the way.  Thank you all.  Anna
