Tearful reunions mark second Mother's Day under pandemic
05/09/2021 1:42pm

Joyous reunions among vaccinated parents and children across the country marked this year&rsquos Mother&rsquos Day, the second one celebrated during the coronavirus pandemic.Some families separated by worries of transmitting the virus saw each other for the first time in over a year, emboldened by their vaccinations.Jeanie Codianni of Los Angeles flew to New Jersey this weekend to surprise her 74-year-old mother. It was a marked departure from their Mother&rsquos Day in 2020, when the pair made bacon and eggs over Facetime. This Sunday, they had bagels and planned brunch in-person instead.&ldquoYou forget how your mom smells, how she looks. It&rsquos like, she never looks as beautiful as the last time you saw her,&rdquo Codianni said. &ldquoWe understand how privileged we are, how lucky we are. Hundreds of thousands of people don&rsquot get to celebrate Mother&rsquos Day, or are celebrating it under a veil of grief.&rdquoFor Pam Grimes, Mother&rsquos Day last year remains a fuzzy yet &ldquoscary and depressing&rdquo memory, blurred together with the rest of the pandemic&rsquos early months. In contrast, when her vaccinated adult grandchildren gathered at her Panama City, Florida, home to celebrate this year, they hugged and laughed and teased each other.&ldquoThe whole world felt better,&rdquo Grimes said.Historian Andy Verhoff didn&rsquot see his mother for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year&rsquos. But for Mother&rsquos Day, he drove from his home in Columbus, Ohio, to spend a day in rural Putnam County, Ohio with her, stopping at the first historical marker they&rsquod worked on together. Both mother and son were vaccinated, giving them the confidence to take their masks off &mdash which made it feel like a normal, pre-pandemic day, Verhoff said.&ldquoWe never let the mask get in the way of things,&rdquo Verhoff said. &ldquoIt was just nice to not have my glasses fog up.&rdquoSome long-term care facilities across the country prepared for the special day by facilitating in-person visits, especially as some states have relaxed visitation rules in recent months given rising vaccination rates and dropping case numbers.In suburban Detroit, residents with dementia at Addington Place lately have been allowed to see visitors in person. But the big change Sunday was their ability to leave for a special meal with family members and return without being quarantined. Moms were also receiving roses from staff.&ldquoResidents can feel the energy now that families are coming in,&rdquo said Kelley Fulkerson, business office manager at Addington in Northville. &ldquoThere is excitement among staff &mdash and tears and excitement among families waiting to see loved ones.&rdquoSt. Joseph of Harahan &mdash an assisted living facility in Harahan, Louisiana &mdash held a parking lot parade Friday with dozens of cars honking and family members yelling well wishes for Mother&rsquos Day.Residents in masks sat behind caution tape and waved to loved ones whom they had waited to see for more than a year in some cases. Workers passed out balloons and flowers.Cathedral Village, a nursing home and rehabilitation center in Philadelphia, was spacing out weekend visits for Mother&rsquos Day, said supervisor Hannah Han. Social workers were helping some families that wanted to take people home to celebrate. Visits in private rooms required masks and gowns.Mary Daniel, who last year took a job as a dishwasher so she could see her husband at a long-term care facility in Jacksonville, Florida, said holidays are important to maintain traditions with family. She said spouses and others should be recognized as essential caregivers who offer emotional support and be allowed inside.&ldquoWe are seeing progress with people being allowed to see loved ones and visit or take them home for holidays, but we are still seeing individual facilities who refuse to follow the federal guidance on allowing visits,&rdquo said Daniel, who started a group called Caregivers for Compromise-Because Isolation Kills Too.Still, the virus limited the holiday this year for Winslow Swan, who served as his 83-year-old mother&rsquos primary caretaker in Ellijay, Georgia, until last year, when health troubles forced him to move her into a nursing home in town during the middle of the pandemic.New COVID-19 cases in the past month has led to the facility to tighten its visitation restrictions, and Swan likely won&rsquot see his mother for this year&rsquos holiday, though he has considered an impromptu window visit.&ldquoIt&rsquos sad,&rdquo he said. &ldquoI know the room that&rsquos she&rsquos in and there is a possibility that I can find her and see her through the window.&rdquoPermalink Comments

LSU Beach's Run At NCAA Beach Championship Comes To An End
05/08/2021 11:38pm

Release via LSU SportsGULF SHORES, Ala.- The Tigers beach season came to an end Sunday evening in Gulf Shores when they fell to UCLA, 3-2. The match came down to the third set on Court 5 where LSU fell by the closest of margins, 15-13.I could not be more proud of this team, said senior-leader Kristen Nuss, the winningest player in college beach volleyball history. The way we fought until the very end is something that I will remember forever.Well forever be a team no matter the wins and losses.This marks the end of the road for the LSU Beach team that clawed its way back to being one of the final four teams standing after dropping its opening round match to Loyola Marymount. LSU finishes the season with a 27-9 record.After finishing the 2020 season as the No. 1 team in the country when it was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All six seniors from last years team returned to fight for a national championship one more time. The Tigers entered this season ranked in the same spot. LSU remained inside the top-four for the entire season.They risked this feeling to do it again, said head coach Russell Brock. That says a ton about their character and not just their ability.For Claire Coppola, Taryn Kloth, Jess Lansman, Toni Rodriguez, and Kristen Nuss, Olivia Ordonez and Kahlee York this is the end of the road for their careers at LSU. It is a group that has led LSU to become one of the nations top programs. Before they arrived in Baton Rouge, LSU had never made it to the NCAA Championship. Since they joined the program, LSU has not missed out on being one of the final eight teams invited to Gulf Shores.Anybody that has seen our team play the past five years has seen the body of work, said Brock. All the stats are almost incalculable. Even as we stand in the circle, its daunting to think about how we will replace them. Its not just their skill. Its their accountability level, the way that they commit to the program, their understanding of what it means to be who we are.Where we came from and where we are as a program, they are that. Without them it will be tough, but they will always be remembered fondly and as the greatest group that as ever put on the purple and gold.The match in the sand against the Bruins was intense and it came down to the bitter end.Jess Lansman and Sydney Moore got the Tigers started with a strong performance on Court 4, 21-15 and 21-17.Claire Coppola, who has 121 wins in her career fourth most in college beach history, and Kelli Greene-Agnew fell on Court 2 as UCLA tied the overall dual, 21-19 and 21-13.Taryn Kloth and Kristen Nuss capped off a perfect season on Court 1 as they won both sets by a score of 23-21.Nuss finished her LSU career with 139 victories, the winningest player in the history of college beach volleyball.As a pair, Kloth and Nuss finished the season 36-0 which ties the best record by an undefeated pair on Court 1 ever. Kelly Claes and Sarah Hughes from USC had the same undefeated record in 2016.On Court 3, Ashlyn Rasnick-Pope and Toni Rodrgiuez fell, 23-21 and 21-18, as UCLA evened the match once again. Rodriguez finishes her seven-year LSU career after competing for both the indoor and beach programs.The attention shifted to Court 5 where Olivia Ordonez and Kahlee York won the first set, 21-15, and dropped the second set, 21-19. The LSU duo battled back after trailing by three, 8-5. They were able to get the score within one but were unable to ever tie it up and UCLA took the third set, 15-13, claiming the match.Permalink Comments
