Covid Arrives

Hi all! My computer is in the Apple fix-it shop and I’m not having any luck making a video on my IPad.
My mom was taken to the hospital yesterday. Mom has had a bad cough for a few days so they did some tests, including Covid and she was positive.
I got a call at 5 AM from a doc who shared what they were doing and going to do. He was really nice. They have her on steroids and a small amount of oxygen, will give her convalescent plasma and Remdesivir. I’m mom’s medical Power of Attorney so we decided not to intubate. He said he didn’t recommend it and she has a DNR. He seemed very positive about recovery. (Mom is 93.) I’ll keep you posted

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that. I understand on the intubating. My mom was a retired RN and was adamant about not wanting to be intubated. She knew what it entailed and was just like NO.

    Hang in there and we will be sending all the positive vibes we can your way. ((hugs))
