There has been a Covid outbreak at my son's school that has spread to the other two schools in our town as well. One case was reported 4 days ago on March 24. So far, 20 cases have now been reported and over 400 are now considered close contacts among the three schools.
Our community went from 0 cases for the last week to 20 really quickly.
My son has a surgery booked to remove his wisdom teeth this coming Wednesday. If we get a call, he won't be able to have surgery and we will probably have to wait several months for our next chance to get an appointment slot.
So I am just asking for prayer that we don't receive a call telling us that we are a close contact. That way we are able to continue forward with my son being able to get the surgery that he needs.
If we are able to go through with the surgery on Wednesday, prayer for speedy recovery and that the roots of his back molars are okay and intact. His wisdom teeth have formed directly under his back molars and can potentially affect the roots of his molars to where he will need them removed and implants for those molars. God sure has given him an interesting set of teeth because this will be our forth trip to the dental surgeon in his life.
Thank you for your prayers. We received a call tonight that my son is a close contact. He is now self-isolating as well as we can in our home and has a test booked in a community 1h30min from us tomorrow morning. (The next available test in our community is Saturday.). The outbreak is the B.1.1.7 variant.
So asking for prayer for a negative test for my son and that we will be able to find a timely rebook for his surgery.
Thank you for your prayers. My son had his Covid test yesterday and it has come back negative.
He still has to quarantine at home until the 10th but doesn't have to isolate from us anymore. So he can equally take part in daily chores and the daily nightly game of Ticket to Ride that we (husband and myself) like to force our children to play while they are on spring break.
We have a new surgery date of July 1. We askd for placement on the wait list if any new dates come up.
Our church has decided to close for Easter services this week due to the outbreak in our community. We have had many families awaiting testing and results in our congregation and to be safe, we will close to be safe. So I'm praying for those families that are still affected by this outbreak and those who have received positive test results. Our community went from 0 cases to over 40 in less than a week.

EnochWalked: Some people even want churches to be taxed, so it's getting harder and harder for Christian charities to speak out about issues while enjoying the special status granted based on their important public service (which the public appreciates less and less).

EnochWalked: The evolution article is interesting. "The theory of evolution claims that mutation is random but most of the mathematics shows that mutations are not random and no data shows random mutation." Does that mean we can predict the next covid variants?

EnochWalked: Interesting (and heartbreaking) article about that collapse, thank you bernie. We really should be looking out for signs like that, since en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seventeenth_of_Tammuz corresponds to June 27th this year (Sunday).

EnochWalked: Soon, if you get "de-platformed", you won't just be stopped from tweeting, but stopped from using your phone or computer at all, not to mention your treadmill, and probably your fridge. But people will say that the 1st Amendment doesn't apply so it's okay.
