AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
Where should I begin? Both my honey and I somehow managed to be exposed to Covid. (We both are fully vaccinated). He wound up at TRH last Friday morning. Pneumonia was the big problem. TRH’s Emergency room was overrun. My honey was in the ER from early Friday AM until Saturday around noon. They had no beds to transfer him to. We were told there were 4 others in the ER awaiting rooms.
I went to Pardee Urgent Care for a rapid test at 6:30 pm and was positive. They close at 7pm so they did a “fast” rapid test. Ironically we both did home tests the day before and were negative - so much for home tests. My symptoms were very mild by comparison, mostly fatigue. When I returned to TRH there were 3 ambulances at the door with 3 people on stretchers just inside the door. I wonder if they had any place to put them.
If that weren’t enough our sewer plugged up and I had quite a challenge getting it taken care of. We spent last weekend with no water and this weekend with no working plumbing. They say bad things come in threes but we are up to 4 for the week. AAA Plumbing came to the rescue Monday afternoon. They were great. While digging, Drew noticed my new wheeled garden seat and when I mentioned it was too stiff to steer he got it loosened up before they left. Now that was above and beyond. Thank you Drew.
