my husband is a doctor at a hospital. So, I know about certain things the general public doesn’t, like the rationing protocols for ventilators and other medical devices that may be in short supply due to Covid. Basically, anyone over 40 will be out of luck, should it come to that; and we are over 40.
school is starting soon. Our county was the first in the state to shut down and received criticism for it, initially. Now, they are determined to open on time. Several counties around us are postponing school opening. I have the option of e-learning, but I can only change my mind once. Then we are committed until the first grading period ends. This is hard. I have to declare soon. I’m hoping the school system will make a different decision before I have to, but that doesn’t seem likely.
I want and need my kids in school. My kids want and need to be in school. But, they need two living parents more. The numbers are going up where I live and are predicted to go up even more when schools reopen. The kids will be carriers, then.
this is hard, and I am sad.
