Ski Diva Extraordinaire
That’s such a sad story! Astonishing. Is that even legal? Glad she keeps going!I ski with an 87 year old woman. She was a First Responder in NYC on 911 who lost most of one lung and part of the other to lung cancer. She's my Energizer Bunny who just keeps going and going. Her doctor suggested that she stop skiing, but she is determined, even if she has to stay on Greens in the future.
Two weeks ago, she had an Angioplasty and stent inserted. They kept her in the hospital overnight as a precaution.
The hospital put a Covid positive woman in my friend's room!!!! She said that the woman coughed all night.
This is normally where I stand on my soapbox and preach about having an advocate for anyone in the hospital. That generation is obedient to whatever the doctor says. Someone should have insisted that the woman be moved.
My friend got Covid 4 days later. She has been throughly vaccinated for Covid due to her ongoing lung cancer treatments. (Any comments on the efficacy of the vaccine are political and not necessary.)
Who in their right mind doesn't quarantine a Covid positive person, but especially around an 87 year old lung cancer survivor?
My friend is recovering, but she's weak. Coughing. Sleeping a lot.
Prognosis? Expected to recover. Skiing in 4 weeks.
The doctors in the facilities in my area are now masking up again. For a while they didn’t, and my baby’s too young to wear a mask so she was at risk during her doctor’s appointments. I’ll be so happy when she’s healthy enough to not worry about that!
