Good to see you.
I’m back home for a bit, will be turning right around to drive back to help out my folks in a few days. My dad is doing well. Better than I expected after the initial call. I won’t share his private medical information, considering this is An almost top 10,000 blog! But I will tell you it really looks like he dodged a very big bullet. So keep a good thought. He should be home, with luck, in about 2-3 weeks.
That being said, can we discuss medical emergencies and elderly parents in the age of Covid-19?? We are daily faced with impossible choices, especially in a state where the governor has threatened to cut funding to any city/county that requires face masks.
I’m too exhausted and working on solutions to be angry. But most of the past week has been making decisions with my fingers-crossed no one gives my mom (who is on O2) or my dad Covid while we scramble to make provisions for both of them.
Right now I’m working off of pure adrenaline. I’m sure the crash will be spectacular.
I want you to know I read every comment you left for me and saw the lovely thread Watergirl started for diversions. Unfortunately, I’ve been going flat out, and have barely even glanced at the blog. I’m leaving it to all of you to be outraged daily for me.
Meanwhile, when I was gone, the most excellent Governor Polis issued a mandatory mask order. I had to pick up milk, juice and few other essentials last night when I got back and am happy to report 100% compliance. Coloradoans stepping up.
If only we had done this in March…
That’s it, I’m off for a busy day and probably won’t be around much, so I hope everyone is doing as well as you can. If your parents are around, virtually hug them.
