I skipped my ophthalmologist appointment today; it's an annual check and it's just too close for comfort right now. My physical therapy appointment in the morning is still on - we wipe things as we go and there are very few people in there now. The students (interns) were recalled and the oldest higher-risk clients have decided to stay home. Tomorrow I'm going to ask for a set of exercises to do on my own at home and skip the next few sessions; there is an assessment on April 3 that, depending on circumstances, might be useful. The last post-op appointment is in the following week.

This whole surgical experience, timing-wise, was a case of defacto self-isolation. I only got out a few times during the entire month, and none of them to crowded venues. Texas is way behind other places in enacting measures to keep people home; rules governing public events and public businesses has fallen to the city and county governments. I was planning to pick up my usual outside activities, but have had to back out (and those museums and parks in turn announced today that they are closed to the public until further notice). My attention will turn pretty exclusively to the yard and garden (baby steps out there) and it's time to turn over the contents of the craft room and decide on something to work on.

Stay healthy, everyone. Stay sane. And be kind to yourselves and your neighbors. (Most of you know that this week I gave out hot homemade rolls to a few neighbors; next week, by request, blueberry muffins.)
