"Recovering" from Covid-19

Many may remember that my Daughter is a CC nurse and has been working with Covid-19 patients at UPMC in Pittsburgh.
We talked this morning and what she told me that healthcare workers are seeing and learning is just plain scary. I wrote a lot of things down and then she informed me that the information has been published. Not for the faint of heart:


A few quotes to get you started.

"I'm currently in the hospital after having a heart attack caused by clotting that resulted from COVID 19. I have a stent in my heart and need to wear a heart monitoring vest at all times. Now I face months of recovery including physical and occupational therapy. I'm only 29"

" Seems counterproductive, but the ones that are not breathing on the ventilator have to lay flat on their stomachs to breathe better. And even some on the ventilator are on their stomachs. And the slightest turn for some is what leads to their almost immediate death. Bathing, cleaning and turning to prevent skin breakdown causes most to code blue, so a decision has to be made on which is most important".

Take precautions and care people because there is now a good chance that the worst is coming.

Things could get a lot worse here in the US, and soon. And we seem to have earned it. Sad thing is that it is a relatively small number of *****s that are responsible
