Hospital visit drill by louannwarren

Hospital visit drill

When you arrive at the hospital you have to be wearing a mask. You sterilize your hands, I sterilized my gloves. They take your temperature and ask you the required Covid questions, then put a green “Covid prescreen pass” band on your wrist. When I got to Jerry’s room I could take off my mask and gloves. If I left the room I had to don the mask again as Texas is under strict mask mandates. Jerry lost a kidney to cancer several years ago and one of the meds that helps his heart (a diuretic) hurts his remaining kidney, which causes the fluid buildup around his heart. A real Catch 22. So he will have to meet with his nephrologist and cardiologist to try to resolve this critical issue. We actually came home at 9 o’clock last night. He’s still asleep, he’s so glad to be home!
Happy that Jerry is home. Hope the doctors find a medicine that works without any complications.

I am so glad to hear he was able to come home. I too hope you find it a way to resolve the critical issue. I think of you often when I hear the news about the increase in Texas. Especially knowing you were going to be in the hospital with Jerry.

I like this picture of you though. In spite of the mask you look gorgeous!

Strange when we have to venture into supposed dangerous territory to get ourselves better but in theory you are probably in the safest place! So glad Jerry is home in his own bed tonight! Keep safe!

@ingrid01 @farmreporter @ludwigsdiana @mittens @beryl @elatedpixie @carolmw @gijsje @happysnaps @pcoulson @grammyn @bigmxx @mgmurray @happypat @joansmor @onewing @kaylynn2150 @ziggy77 @lynnz @pistache Thank you all so much for your very kind and caring comments. Jerry has good doctors, it’s just that he has so many health issues it is hard for them to make each one better, there’s always a side effect it seems. He’s still taking it very easy today, I read him your comments and he was so touched. Thank you all.

Get well wishes to Jerry- that's a really tough deal! I hope with all the technology and know-how the doctors will be able to correct that issue and keep it from happening again. I'm so glad he's home- I actually think it's easier to recover at home- so much more comfortable imho! You really do look good with that mask- I wish I did but I look more like a zombie!

@olivetreeann my daughter in law told me to smile behind the mask, I don’t think I am in this photo, but it does help.
July 3rd, 2020  
I wish you and Jerry all the best!
Take care!
