Got my first shot of Moderna April 25. Like Lois, my injection was

My second dose is scheduled for August 15, but the Ontario government has 
just announced that, starting Monday, we can rebook to move that up. With 
all the horrible news about variants, I really would like to be better 

Right now all the politicians at different levels in Canada are pointing 
fingers and blaming each other for the slow vaccine rollout. I think some 
are more incompetent than others...

The local public library is still only allowing us to pick up holds at the 
door and drop off returns - no browsing the shelves. Very frustrating.

How frustrating - I do hope you fully recover eventually.

The one and only thing that makes colonoscopies worthwhile for me is that 
they remove polyps, reducing one's risk of cancer. OTOH, they're also good 
at convincing one of the imminence of mortality.
