  1. Always uplifting to read your Tuesday posts, JoAnna.

  2. Lots of good news to lift my spirits.
    ~ Great news about Interferon beta: some relief is on the way.
    ~ Way to go, girls, with your mobile ventilators!
    ~ More trees planted in India. The pandemic has not halted climate change action.

  3. With news like this… anything truly is possible JoAnna! Thank you for the uplift :)))

  4. Great post, JoAnna! I’d heard of another similar treatment before serious symtoms. It’s a different medication in a nebulizer. The doctor said he also gives an antibiotic for secondary pneumonia as a result of the Covid. I wrote down that information as well.

  5. The girls’ ventilators and catching the boys are my favourites today.

  6. Wonderful topical news dear JoAnna… loved the trees being planted and well done to the girls invention of the ventilators whose costs as little as $700β€”compared to the $20,000 That is impressive! πŸ™‚
