I would have never in my Blogging life thought that Number 400 would NOT be about quilting!
Excellent Stress relief going on here! Clay will have his Transcather Aorta Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure one week from today! 2 Jun at 7 AM. We have to be at the hospital at 5:00AM – I am wondering how it will feel to set the alarm for 2:30….. LOL…. Guess we will find out. We are about 50 miles from the hospital so it means a target leave time of 3:45!
We will begin life again on 3 June as he should be released to come home. It was rather funny when we saw the Thorasic Surgeon (the guy who cuts your chest to fix the valve) when he told Clay – “you are healthy and it is your choice” – well that was a no brainer for us! TAVR – that is the procedure where they go through the groin to replace the Valve – similar to stint a blockage! We have a wonderful doctor and Clay will be fine – not sure if they will let me see him after his procedure. Sleeping in the car is the other option!
Today we are going to BAMC this morning for his last therapy at BAMC. He has decided to not go the remainder of the week. So if all goes well we have 5 days of relaxation before he has to go on Monday for Pre-Op and then Tuesday is FIX THE VALVE DAY!
We are not stress free, but to have received a date last Thursday was a HUGE stress relief. We went through 5 months of personal health stress PLUS the delays from the Chinese Virus! Life is getting better.
Have a great week – Texas is open and we will be glad to see the remaining states open up! I have kept my mouth shut on this subject, so here are my only thoughts about this Virus.
This country needs to be OPEN for business not closed. Now it is up to all businesses to keep their facilities clean (which they quit doing) AND the responsibility of all Americans to wear masks, keep hands clean and off your face! My personal opinion is that Americans were forced to close the Country too long by Doctors who based their decisions and guidance on ‘pie in the sky’ data! We must be responsible for our own health and hygiene and businesses to CLEAN THEIR FACILITIES! Governors who continue to arrest people who want to open their business and acting like Dictators taking away freedoms will have to face Election Day! I hope the people of their states realize that their Leaders want to control them for political reasons! Personally I am tired of paying for States that did not prepare for a situation like this! Remember this when voting in November! It just did not have to be this way!
My sister had polio in 1952 and I did not get it. They tried all the things that are going on now especially “social distancing” and it did not work! The virus was in the water (dirty swimming pools). Check this out 1952 Polio Epidemic in San Antonio Texas
PROOF of what works – Clay and I went through all we did and never got sick – but we used masks, sanitizer, washed our hands often, kept our hands off our faces, changed clothes after being in a doctor’s office/hospital, and stayed out of the grocery store (curbside). We took responsibility! I understand that it is different when families have elderly parents and young children. But it is possible to not catch the flu or the virus. Businesses and Americans must take personal responsibility to rid the country of horrible flu seasons and viruses brought in from other countries. KAGA2020 AND MAGA 2020! GO TRUMP!
Stay healthy and hope you come back again!
