So the significant other is a nurse, thirty years on the job, most of that spent in the E/R trauma unit. Until recently she was semi retired, pulling a shift or two a week.
That has changed recently. 0100 this morning the phone rings, I’m 90 minutes out she says.
I start to express my concern. 20 years in SWAT she says, how many midnight calls, how many doors did you kick, how many Shots fired did we hear on the scanner, GSW enroute to the E/R.
I can and will save a life today;
I’ll get the coffee I say.
She sent me this:
“WE ARE READY”

Thinks she’ll be at the hospital until 2100. With her experience they have assigned her triage. She asks I forward three requests;
Read and understand what the symptoms are;
Do not go to the E/R unless your symptoms are severe.
Do not go to the E/R for testing, particularly if you don’t have symptoms. They have critically ill people to care for.
Pray and pray some more.

Not sure if the pic is from when she started or a few minutes ago.

For my part I have sent my resume to the Sheriffs office. I’ve been retired since 2011, no desire to push a patrol car around, ok maybe a little, but I’m sure I can help out in some way that doesn’t involve direct law enforcement action:
And going to give blood tomorrow.
I hope you are all well and remain so.

What about being a police dispatcher?

After I got done with being a Sheriff's Officer, I was going to do the same thing you're thinking about.
After I moved to TX, I wanted to try out being a police dispatcher, since I already knew the lingo.

My Guiding in Alaska keeps me busy enough, my desire to help out is related to this current crisis.
But, now that you mention it....

Thanks for your wife's dedication and service we need more people like her.
Thank you also since it's not easy to wear a badge.
I have two heroes in the family both are my daughters both are EMTs and one is a paid fireman while the other is a 911 dispatcher who is working a 18hr shift today because of the virus.
It's amazing how the women never seem to get the credit they deserve.

My wife is an RN and got called in Sunday to essentially be the bouncer at the entrance to one of the urgent cares doing the swabs, noone got past without a temp reading and a mask, she even had to get into with a Doc who thought he didn't have to get his taken cause he worked there. She said " I know who you are, and you're not getting through this door without your temp taken". Next she is on the list for viro triage
I can tell you it is a stressful time for the health care workers, her biggest fear is bringing the virus home to me and the girls. She already assumes that she will get it, no matter how may precautions she takes there will always be that chance.

Anyway God Bless all of the health care workers that are out dealing with this, from the doctor's to the ones cleaning the bed pans and taking out the trash!

Nurses can be kinda bossy can’t they. My best to your wife. Mine has the same fear as yours, here is hoping neither one of them bring it home.

I'll do that and thank God for all the dedicated health givers who are risking their life to see us through this crisis.

I got to meet two of these Ladies at my doctors office this mourning.
All is well except for some early stages of bronchitis which I will be taking meds for.
Not upstaging Salmonchaser just wanting to express to everyone to get checked if you have some type of illness coming on since if you catch it early you can cure it or have less effects.

Listening to Gov. Cuomo this morning, strikes me as a solid leader, clear concise message. May not agree with his politics but he, relative to every high risk low frequency incident I’ve been involved in, all the training I’ve been too, he’s doing a great job.

I support our President, when I listened to and watched him yesterday afternoon I was concerned. I’ve seen the same characteristics exhibited by officers who after 48 or 72 hours on a tough scene without relief are shutting down mentally.
I hope he got some sleep last night.
As Guy wrote, these are interesting times, sitting on a mountain in Northeast Oregon, it’s hard to imagine what is going on in Seattle or to a lesser extent Portland. It must be scary in New York.
What I’ve learned from a reliable source :) rural areas will begin seeing more of this.

Thanks to your wife and all those who are providing care in these troubled times. My daughter is working as an EMT in Wisc. right now. Follow the guidelines, and PRAY. CL

I just got a call this afternoon, i get to go to one of our projects in silicon valley and help them out for a month or two, guess i will be finding out what its like going into one of the country's epicenters. Ive got a few days to get there, but need to get everything in good order here at home before I go. Fingers crossed everything goes smoothly and no issues.

It is difficult to imagine the demands upon those in major trauma centres during times of crisis. Those who work there deserve our support and consideration. Physicians, surgeons, nurses, technologists and even those who clean up definitely earn their pay.

Tuff couple of days for her. Lots of very sick people. She’s worked the E/R for a long time, people die in the E/R, this is different. We think next week will be bad she said. She tells me about an old guy, dying, asking her to please sit for a minute. Hospital won’t let families in.
I happen to be reading a book on Texas, it’s sitting on my lap as she tells me about the day, she taps the book, “I know how Davey Crocket felt when he looked over the wall”.
She always tells me she hated history in school...

She is a hero in every sense of the word and is to be commended. I hope she stays healthy while helping all the others.

Thank your wife for being on the front line.
She is indeed a hero in so many ways.

God bless all of our health care workers and the MANY people who are supporting the CV response effort in every way. So many continue to do their jobs in the face of exposure; I salute them all.

Here in NY the conditions are beyond comprehension. Twelve people die every hour in NYC but the heroic support team continues to work tirelessly to save those that they can. Many don't go home knowing that they were likely exposed (despite their PPEs) and are afraid to pass the virus on to family.

Hopefully, this will level off sooner rather than later and we can at least see the light at the end of the tunnel. Prayer has become more meaningful every day.

Be safe and be well everyone.
