First, there is now a Resources Page here for the most commonly asked questions I’m getting.
Happy to continue to answer your questions/concerns as best I can, so don’t be shy about that.

What a week… Besides the attempted coup in DC, my husband (DH) had a problem Thursday with sudden memory loss and had to be admitted to the local hospital. We’re still not entirely sure what caused this; some docs think a small stroke and others “transient global amnesia,” which is a very weird syndrome. I wondered whether fumes or CO poisoning from his chainsaw might be a contributor. It was tough, but he is thankfully home now and fine. He is being treated as though he had a stroke, which makes sense in the short term.
This has been very stressful, especially w hospitalization in time of Covid, and not being allowed in, as well as his being in a hospital I dislike. I will be updating my 2015 post on “How to survive your hospitalization” to include thoughts about care in the time of Covid. I would appreciate hearing about any relevant experiences that you might have had and advice for others.
I’m very grateful my daughter was here with me during this, and that he is better. I don’t have the energy/brainpower to do the newsletter at the moment. Apologies. Hope to have it for you in the next couple of days.
