There’s a Hepatitis A outbreak in Hawaii, especially on Oahu where I live. Thank goodness David and I were vaccinated against Hepatitis A and B prior to our trip to India in 2012. So, we are unconcerned that we will be affected by the outbreak. We can dine at restaurants without fear that we will get sick from contaminated food.
There are so many things to be grateful for. Our children are very fortunate that David and I are self-supporting and independent. We never ask them for help of any kind, whether financial or otherwise. In fact, they ask us for help, which we provide without question.
My mother and mother in law never drove and never owned a car. My mother caught the bus, and my mother in law relied on the Handy Van. At age 70, I can do so much more than these two women could at my age. How glad I am that I own a car and can drive without asking my kids or husband to drive me. That in itself is a blessing.
David and I have never had a heart attack, stroke, diabetes, or cancer. We are not blind or deaf. Nor do we have dementia.
Hey, if I ever stop blogging, you will definitely know that I have dementia. Nothing else, short of death, will ever keep me from blogging.
