During this time, health experts have said it is imperative that those who are elderly or immunocompromised should not have any contact with others. This includes their own children and grandchildren, as they could be asymptomatic, meaning they are a silent carrier of the coronavirus. Ozzy Osbourne is one of these people who need to stay home and he says that it’s been really difficult to not be able to hug his daughter, Kelly Osbourne.

Kelly recently posted a heartfelt picture to Instagram, showing she and her parents practicing social distancing. They are all wearing masks and gloves while sitting at opposite ends near their backyard pool.

“Today was the first time I got to see my parents in almost 3 weeks!!! Even though I did not get to hug them…. at this point I will take what I can get,” Kelly writes in the caption. “They are doing well and are safe and sound for now. Thank you so much for your continued well wishes love and support. We will get through this together. I love you all 💜 stay safe.”

Kelly uploaded two photos to her Instagram. One of them sitting by the pool, and another featuring a heartbreaking text from dad Ozzy. He texts to his daughter, “It was so lovely seeing you today.  Toddles it breaks my heart that I couldn’t give you a kiss and a hug.”

Earlier on, Kelly participated in the #StayHome social media trend. In the hashtag, people are urging others to stay home, specifically for someone that they know is high-risk. Kelly jazzed it up a bit with the hashtag #StayHomeForOzzy. She posted a photo dressed up like him, holding a paper that said the hashtag on it.

“Both of my parents are high risk, especially my dad. If I would have known 3 weeks ago when I sent them off to Panama that that was gonna be the last time I got to hug and kiss them for a while… I would have held on a little longer,” Kelly writes on Instagram. “However these are the sacrifices we must make. I stay home for my mum and dad. If you don’t have anyone to stay home for I beg you #StayHomeForOzzy.”

Mom Miraculously Gives Birth To 14.5 Lb. Baby Completely Naturally

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

In some non-coronavirus news, we have a crazy story for you today! One Australian mom gave birth to a 14.5 lb baby! On top of that, she gave birth to the baby completely naturally. According to Australian news outlets, the baby is very happy and healthy, which is great news! Willow Amey was born to parents Melis and Ben, and the new parents say they were “startled,” but not surprised.

This seems to be a thing that runs in their family. Their first child, also a girl, weighed 12.3 lbs at birth. They even joked that their newborn second daughter may be able to share diapers pretty soon!

“I was like [gasps] oh no!” Melis tells news outlets when she saw how big her baby was. Glenda Amey, her mother-in-law, also couldn’t believe how big she was. “She’s huge, absolutely huge,” the grandmother tells news stations.

The average newborn in Australia is 7.6 lbs based on a full, 40-week pregnancy. Willow’s weight is actually so impressive that she knocked out the leading baby for the top spot for the title of “Australia’s Biggest Baby.” Previously, a baby boy was born in 2018 weighing in at 13.8 lbs. However, he was born via C-section when doctors realized he was on the bigger side. “Everyone was asking me, ‘Are you having twins?’ and I was like ‘I wish’,” his mother shares at the time. “The main thing was not his size, but he was coming out healthy and happy.”

Potential dangers of a baby being this size at birth

Dr. Kristin Atkins is a specialist in maternal and fetal medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. She weighs in on babies being born bigger than average. “Bigger is not always better when it comes to babies’ birth weight,” she says. One thing is that it could provide obstacles for mothers that plan to give birth vaginally.

Additionally, babies 10 lbs or larger can have trouble moving down the birth canal and get stuck under the mother’s pelvic bones. This can cause damage to the baby’s neck or break their collarbones or arms. Thankfully, for this couple, Willow is doing very well and did not encounter any of those issues during birth! Congratulations to the new parents on their bundle of joy.

Another CEO is stepping up and putting their employees first during the coronavirus pandemic. Columbia Sportswear Company has closed all of its stores, except the online business for right now. At the time of posting, they are holding a 25% off sale on their website. With many stores closed, that means hundreds of employees are out of work for the time being.

However, the president and CEO Tim Boyle is reducing his salary so the company can continue to pay its employees their full amount. He is reducing his salary to $10,000. In addition, other executives at the company are taking 15 percent pay cuts for the time being.

All of the North America stores will be closed, likely until around April 30. Even though many employees cannot work, they will still be paid their full salary. This is good news for many families relying on the income. The employees have also been given “catastrophic pay” after the company had to announce closures.

This statement comes just after Texas Roadhouse CEO Kent Taylor announced he is giving up the rest of his 2020 salary and bonuses to continue to pay employees. Hopefully, more stores and restaurants around the country will do the same! People should not have to worry about their health and their financial security at the same time.

  • Rocker Alan Merrill has died from coronavirus. 
  • He was 69 years old and his daughter warns about the dangers of the virus. 
  • He was most famous for the song “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

 

Rock legend Alan Merrill has died at the age of 69. Sadly, his daughter Laura confirmed that he died after being diagnosed with coronavirus. She warned of the dangers of the virus.

Alan is perhaps best known for being the co-writer and lead singer on the first version of “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.” The song has been popular over the years and many artists have covered it. He first recorded the song with the Arrows in 1975.

Alan was born Allan Preston Sachs on February 19, 1951. He was a singer and songwriter, but he also played many instruments including guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, and the harmonica. He was also the first Westerner to become a pop star in Japan.

After the Arrows broke up, he had a successful solo career. His daughter posted a loving tribute to him on Facebook and also warned that people take the coronavirus pandemic seriously. She said, “People are dying. You don’t think it’ll happen to you or your strong family. It has. Stay home if not for you … for others. For my dad. This thing is real. We probably won’t be able to mourn him properly with a funeral. I just lost the greatest love of my life and won’t be able to hug anyone because I’ve been exposed and need to self-quarantine for two weeks … alone.”

Joan Jett also shared her sadness on social media. Of course, she went on to record the song “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.” She wrote, “I’ve just learned of the awful news that Alan Merrill has passed. I can still remember watching the Arrows on TV in London and being blown away by the song that screamed hit to me. With deep gratitude and sadness, wishing him a safe journey to the other side.”

Such sad news! RIP Alan.

Remember To Thank Grocery Store Employees, Nurses, Truck Drivers & More Right Now

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

The coronavirus pandemic is far from over. Now, the President has set up social distancing guidelines until April 30. Many of us have the luxury of working from home or are just able to stay home. However, for so many people, their job is considered essential and they must work and keep the world going.

I have seen so many photos and videos of nurses, truck drivers, grocery store employees, and others breaking down. They are exposed to the virus every day, as they work tirelessly to keep people alive or supply them with essential needs. A little thank you can go a long way.

Don’t forget to thank essential workers during this time

The next time you are shopping for essential needs, be sure to thank any employee that you see (while being six feet away, of course). If you have a nurse in your life, thank them or send them a little gift to lift their spirits. Make sure to keep tabs on those who are still working or those who might be lonely at home.

It is a tough time, but we can all get through it together if we show a little bit of kindness and lots of common sense. You could leave a care package for delivery drivers and your mailman or woman. Yet many times, a simple “thank you” or “I appreciate you” will do. Please, stay home if you can. Plenty of stores and restaurants offer delivery or online shopping!
