    We all agree which one of the four people pictured would be the least fun at a party, right? 
    Other girls may try to take me away 
    But you know, it's by your side I will stay

    Would it be the crazy guy behind the shrink holding the gun telling him to tell the people in the waiting room that office hours are over?

    Oh, "four people".  Nevermind.  I was thinking outside the cube.

    She's working COVID again, today.  Then she will rotate back to her normal telemetry unit for a couple days before a rotation back to the COVID unit.  This will continue on for the indeterminate future.  At some point I predict most medical personnel will be focusing on the pandemic.

    The first responders are doing a heroic job.  Please give anyone you know in this position, including police, firemen, EMS kudos.  They're paying a steep price dealing with this pandemic.

    Our son used to make money on these in HS, betting he could solve it in less than 3 minutes. He became infatuated with these things, he has dozens in different sizes and geometries.

    @nolaegghead - thank you for a front-line assessment of what it is like.  Brings this home and should be enough to get everyone to be smart and follow the guidelines.
    My deepest respect for your wife and what she and her coworkers are addressing.  Stay healthy and stay safe.

    @nolaegghead it really sucks to hear how bad the situation is getting there in NO.  This is going to touch so many people directly and personally before it settles down.  Good for your wife standing up tall to help others regardless of the situation and good for you for supporting her and those around you as I know you always do.

    Breakfast 

    I had the same breakfast this morning myself.
    Coleman, Texas
    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn. A curing chamber for bacterial transformation of meats...
    "Bourbon slushies. Sure you can cook on the BGE without them, but why would you?"

    @nolaegghead I hope the two of you can remain safe. I cannot imagine the stress and anxiety.

    Gawjus Gary........for others who make it, do so with fresh eggs (as opposed to grocery store) if at all possible. What a difference that makes.

    So...an update.

    SWMBO is a nurse in New Orleans.  She usually works a cardio ICU stepdown unit called "telemetry".  She got up this morning and checked her schedule on the work calendar and said "oh joy, I'm working the COVID-19 unit the next couple days".

    Anyway, she calls me about half way through her shift "man, what a sh!t show".  We have to re-use our PPE gowns.  We have one N95 mask for the shift (but they are in a negative pressure unit, so you have to wear it the entire time). 

    Someone comes around every once and a while and gathers up the protective gowns and puts them in a UV cabinet to "decontaminate them".  The UV is a surface sterilizer, not designed to decon gowns.

    Anyway, she had 3 patients.  One on 100% O2, one on 5 liters a min, one not on any.  She's not doing vents.  They are all older, all have some issues. One came from an assisted living center.

    The building engineer (hospital with around 5000 employees) is on a vent and not expected to live.  The director of nursing tested positive.

    A bunch of staff is infected.  She actually feels safer working with the COVID-19 patients, since her normal unit doesn't allow for N95 masks and often those patients end up testing positive.

    We had a talk, I was thinking about living over at my shop for a few weeks because first responders have a higher incidence of infection.  I have a friend's RV over there and she said I could stay in it, plus i have a couple AC areas inside, bathrooms, fridge, microwave, smoker....Could totally stay there.  Internet, yadda yada.

    Decided to stay here for moral support. She is really cognizant about hygiene, as she routinely deals with infectious disease like tuberculosis.

    She made masks all day for coworkers on Sunday.  I had to grab a backup sewing machine from the shop because she had some issues with her main unit.

    Anyway, her hospital is rapidly making room for COVID patients.  The elective surgeries are suspended (few weeks now).  No one wants to go the the hospital for any reason unless absolutely necessary, so the census on most units are down. 

    The ER is an absolute nightmare...everyone is advised to avoid unless absolutely necessary.  All the egress points are guarded by security.  No visitors allowed anywhere.  

    We are dealing with some challenging times, my fellow forum friends. 

    Hang in there, be calm like fuzzy cute bunnies, and don't freak out.
    Thanks for the update , Linda and I have had you guys in our thoughts , hang tough

    Special thanks go out to your wife and you for supporting her. I guess not all Libs are bad ;)

    Thanks to all those dealing with this on a daily.  It's a true sacrifice for the greater good.  Stay safe and God bless!

    Bought a new iPhone Pro Max. Not having the home button is a real pain so far. Old habits are hard to break.

    This CYA attitude on the part of hospital management in these trying times is utter bullsh!t!
