I imagine your holidays will be much like mine - nil. Now that it is not healthy to gather with anyone not in your household, my neighbors and I communicate with masks, six feet apart, and in the hallways.
I miss having warm chocolate pudding this time of year with a dear neighbor on the fourth floor. We have talked about doing it outside at the pool, so we could social distance, but it is raining (yes, in sunny Florida) and looks to be doing that for a week - through Christmas.
I do talk to my neighbors and still do not have the word to drive yet - if I would just stop falling on my head I could live again. The last time I fell was during Hurricane Sally.
I had let my dog out in the activity room and when I brought him in the heavy door slammed against me knocking me to the floor on my head. Later that day I was social distancing with a neighbor in his apartment and I got up from the chair on wheels and my feet hit a throw rug and down I went AGAIN. Hit head AGAIN. Later I closed the windows I had opened in my bedroom and I fell again. I had to butt walk (I could not get up) to the phone in the living room to call for help. I butt-walked to the front door and opened it. My dear neighbors grabbed my arms and pulled right me up.
Some say I should get a walker - but I always fall backwards now. It would not really help. So I am trying very hard to remain upright. And I must ask for help to take me anywhere. Maybe the New Year will bring me independence again. We will see.
I am cooking Christmas dinner with all the fixings, but this time, no guests. I still will have "It's a Wonderful Life" on while cooking. My traditions will go on, as much as they can. I definitely will have lots of leftovers to eat until the New Year.
So my friends, I request you stay safe and healthy through this difficult time and I will try to do so, too. And please, try to enjoy whatever "events" you can have, even if you are the only guest. We must keep positive that "this, too shall end."
