My wife just informed me that her hospital has reopened a Covid unit. During the peak months, they had 5 Covid units full. The past couple months they had no special units, just treating a few here and there in the regular ICUs. I'm scared they're going to pull her away from her unit and into Covid again. Those first 3 months were horrible. I can't even retell the stories that she told me. Watching more people die in a couple months than she saw in 18 prior years combined. And she's not at a major metro hospital.

To top it off, the next town over from us has their whole varsity football team in quarantine because one of the players tested positive after practicing with the team all week.

Boy.....I am VERY concerned that this is where we are heading. I have said it here a few times....as a nurse, I am pretty well prepared for death, sadness, family heartbreak....we learn to compartmentalize and cope in our individual ways. But, my two months of COVID nursing was devastating.

My best to your wife and family. We are only as strong as our support system.

Predictable results will be predictable

Since when do schools start in early August? Is that a Southern thing? We never started until at least the last week of August when I was a kid, and after like 4th grade it changed to after Labor Day.

Same with my wife.

All the best to you and yours also.

And I assumed it was everywhere.

When I was a kid, we didn't start until September, but less than half the classrooms at the middle and high schools I attended had A/C. They were bad enough, in the South, in September and the first week of June; we'd have died in a southern August.

The change, now that air conditioning is universal, was to get the semester over before Christmas break. And with more holidays and teacher workdays, that's pushed the start date to mid-August, or earlier.

Which has nothing to do with Covid-19, so I'll bring it back by saying that the schools around here that are trying to open up in person, have pushed their start dates back to give themselves more time, some back into September like God intended.
