I just spoke with Dr. Pitchon — 400 out of 930 beds at Cedars are Covid patients

I just spoke with Dr. Pitchon, he said everyone must stay away from everyone else right now. With almost half of Cedars filled with Covid patients, the situation in Los Angeles is absolutely critical, and they’re expecting things to get even worse…

Dr. P said we have to think of Covid as being everywhere, behind every door, at every gas station, on everyone’s clothing,

the situation is absolutely dire 😢.

He also said Cedars still hasn’t announced publicly a plan on how they’re going to vaccinate regular people yet, they’re still trying to get through all the medical people…

It’s really nerve wracking because I have a few medical problems brewing (like the mass in my breast), and I’ve got to hope everything is going to be okay to wait a few months…I really don’t have a choice right now. I’ll repeat my breast imaging students in a couple of weeks and then reevaluate, but I’ll not sure anyone can do anything with the hospitals full.

The good news about the clots in my arm is that they’re chronic, so they’ve been there for awhile and he doesn’t expect them to break off or bother me in any way. He’s going to change my antibiotics to see if that will help reduce the burning, and I should repeat an ultrasound on my arm in a few weeks to make sure they’re not getting bigger or whatever, but he doesn’t expect them to become life threatening or anything like that.

(But I cant help but worry about them a little bit though…another thing to think about 😦

How are you doing? I hope you’re doing okay…I miss you tremendously, I hope life will be more stabilized by summer…

Love,
Tara

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
