Do you keep distance from family?

Na we don't have anyone writing speeding tickets in the UK, we have a complex invasive network of automated speed cameras to collect a stealth tax on drivers

Edit: sarcasm people, sarcasm. Expected more from the UK contingent of Reddit!

I was up camping in Yorkshire in the UK and only have a small tent for me and the wife, and yeah, had to leave the bikes outside. We had locks, but I still didn't like the feeling of my precious being out of sight and exposed to the elements.

Probably should have left the bikes outside and the wife in!

Kidney transplant (deceased donor) here, 15 years post transplant.

What I was always told is that it depends on a lot of factors, but the first year is the riskiest bit. Once you get through that it depends on a healthy lifestyle and adherence to medication. I was lucky that I was 22 when I had my transplant and my donor was 18 so I had a very healthy donor organ and I was young enough to recover quickly from surgery. Once you're through the first year, there really is no telling how long a transplant will survive, when I was transplanted there was a guy who'd just lost his transplant after 33 years. If I make it 30+ years on this transplant I would consider myself extremely lucky - I'm already very lucky to a have a transplant that has lasted 15.

I'm immunocompromised (transplant patient). I'm already staying in as much as possible (work from home, going out for a walk away from people). Should I avoid sharing a bed with my wife?
