Thank you for all you are doing. Everyone is frustrated and under extreme stress. That is why it is critical that the government not only take steps to take care of our physical health but also our mental health. The Entertainment industry is needed. Regional themeparks are more important than the Orlando parks. Yes, we must make sure WDW and Universal Florida survive because Orlando would die without them but it is the regional parks that provide escapes for more people. WDW may draw over 50 million a year but the actual number of specific people is probably not even 15 million. Again, thank you for all you are doing.Poor you. I spent yesterday ransacking my outpatient family med office ransacking it, hoping to find some overlooked Personal Protective Equipment. We found 100 face fields, 3 packs of gowns, and 5 N95 masks. The director of our testing center nearly cried.
It’s ok to be frustrated about cancellations but your sense of entitlement disgusts me. Your trip is a trivial drop in the bucket, and it’s not Disney’s fault they need to stay closed to prevent the spread of a deadly virus. Be thankful your son will have more birthdays. There are going to be many who will not have any more birthdays.
Would you like to know what I’ll be doing next week on Mon, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday? Swabbing. Swabbing for Covid. Swabbing for Covid for 8 hours straight.
I’m hopeful I’ll get a lunch break and a few bathroom breaks. Maybe.
And because Ive been asked to do swabbing, I won’t be able to be in my own office to see my own patients. I’m suspending my practice to do this and letting other partners overtake their care. It’s really hard for me to accept this but the testing center is where I’m needed right now. And this is going to go on indefinitely but at least through the end of April.
I also have two younger brothers in healthcare. None of us will go near our parents for the next few months so as to protect them.
