shift start

one of the people I follow on twitter just posted that her ER nursing shift in a major American city (she doesn’t specify)  started with three COVID-19 cardiac arrests (deaths)

The great dying has started.

which inevitably looks like eugenics – disability twitter is watching the approach of death with narrowed eyes and one last curse for the Republicans

In Florida alone half a million will be sick by the end of April. Guns, crappy info from Fox and worse info from Trump will make it all incredibly worse and no help is coming.

No help is coming. The Americans who aren’t in the health care system already as workers don’t know that. There’s not enough supplies.

It all started with Reagan.

Remember on his watch it was okay to let thousands of Americans die of HIV.

In Canada we’re going to have the same issue, but it will take longer because we’re a bigger country relative to our population, but eventually almost everyone will get sick. Yes, Canada’s working on a vaccine. Yes, I bless the people who have already volunteered for vaccinations. But no, we’ve got a year of hell in front of us.

I have a very mild fever again, like I did a couple of days ago, and my eyes feel sandy. No breathing problems at all, no congestion; could still be allergies, could be a mild case.  I’m no longer leaving the house; Jeff has to for work, although not much.

In after times will people be angry with me that I wanted to catch it early in the outbreak? I want to be immune so I can actually help people instead of being stuck in my fucking house.

Mike gets out of quarantine next Monday.

As I suspected they will be using SOAP Hall (Beacon rental location) as a place to stage the sick for RCH before they need intubation or supplemental oxygen.

Prince Chuck has caught it but if he’s like the rest of Royal Family he’s got the fucking immune system of a water buffalo and will sail through it.


and I’m still writing fanfic. There are hugs and possibilities and smooches and complications.
