Blue Bird Quarantine Update Week 4

by April Fitzsimmons, AP

Yooohoooo!  Hello Blue Birdies,

I know you all have been waiting for this weeks joke from our happy neighbors down the road on 16th Street.  Here it is:  “How do you get an astronauts baby to stop crying?” - “You Rocket!”  Which leads me to the excellent news that our boy Rocket, who was featured in last weeks email, has been ADOPTED!!  I can’t make this kind of stuff up.  The synchronicity of that being the joke of the day, and finding out that Rocket is in a happy home is just awesome.  

So how are you all doing?  Week four in quarantine feels like an eternity but there is light at the end of the tunnel, I can finally see it (hoping it is not an illusion).  This week I learned that in Japan when someone really ‘loves’ someone, the term “I love you” isn’t what they say.  Instead they say “Thank you” as a term of endearment.  Think about that for a minute.  Gratitude in Japanese culture is more endearing than ‘love’.  This really resinated with me because I still believe that when this pandemic is over, or becomes less of a life altering condition, that the lesson we are all going to come out with is one of gratitude.  I know for me, like last week, I am still really appreciating the small things and giving a lot more value to these things.  On Tuesday I walked over the Vilano bridge and saw two porpoises playing in the clear water below hunting for fish and playing with their food (fish).  I stood there for 45 minutes watching them…  a year ago I would have been more focused on the workout.  But that day seeing the beauty of the dolphins in the clear water is something that I hope I never take for granted again, and I hope by sharing some of my experiences that it will help you to notice the beauty we otherwise might be to busy to appreciate.

Office Update

Starting May 1st I will be opening in phases.  Phase one will consist of me treating a maximum of five people a day as opposed to eight - ten.  I will also only be using one room so that I do not cross contaminate.  This will limit contact for myself and for you all.  I have a forehead thermometer on the way and will be screening everyone prior to their appointments.  I will be using paper sheets and am allowing thirty minutes between each patient to allow myself to properly sanitize.  Don’t worry, Blue will still be allowed to come to work.  He has not seen anybody except our zoo members and is very clean, trimmed up, and ready to work. ;)  

However, if you are immunocompromised, or do not feel comfortable coming in, I would suggest you wait until phase two.  I can do my best at insuring your safety but there is always a chance..  Telehealth and phone conferences have been going great so that is still and will always be an option.  At this time I am no longer taking new patients until further notice so that I can focus on you all.  My project this week has been to find and set up an online scheduling service.  It has proven to be a challenge so by next week I will have that option available.  Check my website for updates as I am hoping to have it up by the weekend.  

This week’s update is short, hopefully sweet, and I am giving you a few homework assignments.  

Assignment #1

I am attaching two youtube videos with 741HZ and 528HZ meditative music.  “741 hz The 5th frequency of the Solfeggio scale will lead you into the power of self-expression, which results in a pure and stable life and cleans the cell from the toxins. Frequent use of 741 Hz leads to a healthier, simpler life, and also to changes in diet towards healthier non toxin foods.  The 528 Hz frequency is the most significant of the ancient Solfeggio Frequencies. Known as the “love” frequency, it has a deep-rooted relationship with nature, and is present in everything from Chlorophyll to human DNA. It also has mathematical significance and proven healing potential.”

Assignment #2

Create and start a gratitude journal.  Find a notebook, decorate it as you like or don’t and every day write down three things that you are grateful for.  As “tree hugging” as this may sound, I truly believe that once we start focusing on being grateful our lives as a whole will start to shift and lead to a global change on many levels.  

Until next time…

In health and gratitude,

April and Blue
