COVID-19: What does it mean for people in ICU and for families?

Posted by Rosemary, Volunteer Mentor @rosemarya, Mar 15, 2020

Becoming ill with COVID-19 is a uniquely isolating and scary time for all of us, especially you are in the hospital or ICU. Everywhere people are being asked to practice social distancing, many ICUs and hospitals are restricting or not allowing visitors. Luckily this community is virtually open any time all the time to connect with others. If you or a loved one are in ICU right now because of COVID-19 or for any other reason, our ears and hearts are open to let you know you are not alone.

Are you in the hospital right now and want to chat with others? Is your family member in the hospital and you’re not able to visit?

Knowing that I was able to give u a chuckle, gave me one☺️. I didn’t think of adult protective services, that is a great idea. I’m going to call in the morning

Hi Becky … I pray all is well for you and your family . I have been able to talk with him more. He is improving : ). I was allowed to give him an iPad last week and I dropped some books and magazines off to him today… he still has the tracheostomy but he is speaking better than he was before. Patience is what I am learning to practice. Thank you so much for checking on us…I love all of you…you have helped me so very much during this hard time…

@mutwo I am so happy to hear from you! Your spirits seem so much lighter! It sounds like you’ve been able to see your husband. Have his daughters relented a little? See him as often as you are able—you’re his best medicine. Becky

I am happy to be able to contact you! I'm sorry it took so long. I've been working on myself and staying busy to ward off sadness. Thank you so much for thinking of me and being concerned. that's so Beautiful to share your time with thoughts of hoping that things are okay for us….Thank You. I do hope that things are well for you. I'm planning to mail it this week. Thank you again for your advice. I am making notes. I'm wondering if I should include audio recordings that dispute the false allegations that were made about my husband and myself. He is very special to me. We didn't always see eye to eye but I love him dearly. All I wanted was his love. He's 63 and I'm 43. He's a New Yorker and I'm a Virginian. He's hard, I'm soft. He's pessimistic, I'm optimistic. He thinks he hasn't talked with me or had contact with me because I abandoned him. I don't know what they told him.

@mutwo I know it’s been a long, long time but I’ve been thinking about you and hoping that all has gone well. Will you write and let me know how you’re doing?
