ON THE BACK BURNER

Marcg 20

This is just too cool. The word went via internet that at 6 pm, everyone should come out onto their balconies, or open a window and applaud the health care workers who have been working tirelessly during this pandemic. And they did. So did we. So did Netanyahu, a distant neighbor. You could hear clapping all up and down the street. I did a couple of Yemenite calls. I wanted to take  a picture, but it was so dark that I couldn’t actually see any neighbors. But I sure heard them I will remember this  special coming together for a long time.Did I mention that my Colorado daughter, a nurse ,is a gatekeeper at her hospital. Here is how this works for them. A person, with a script from there PC Doc, for a Covid-19 test,drives to a parking area at the hospital. They have to show their script to my daughter. No one gets past her if they haven’t seen their Doc.  and feels that a test is called for. They give her their cell number and drive into a designated space in the lot. When there is the next space for the test, She calls them and they drive to a side door. They are then escorted from their car,masked and taken into a exam room for swabbing. Then escorted back to their car.All of the staff are heavily gowned. As of this morning , they had only 119 tests left.The tests are driven to Denver and results  sent when confirmed.  About 8-10 days later. The health community is taking this virus seriously and so should we. I quote a friend” I don’t want to die on a ventilator”.

I am watching the 700 Club and they just showed people on the balconies in Jerusalem clapping for the Health Care workers. They are Believers who support Israe

Leona, I wonder if it is safer for you to just stay in Israel for a time rather than come here where the virus is all over.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
