I think we can all agree that all different kinds of activities were postponed, cancelled, etc. due to the COVID-19 related shutdowns. One area is routine medical care. Here is just one. My mom has a history of back problems. A couple of months before the 'rona got crazy she moved into a senior apartment complex and my sister bought her house. Early on in the 'rona she was working with my sister to sort through stuff that she didn't take with her to her apartment and aggravated her back. As days and weeks went on, her pain increased and mobility decreased. She tried to get an appointment with her doctor, but by then the office was closed and was only working over the phone. Not being able to examine her, the doctor kept prescribing more meds. Finally, on the Friday before Memorial Day she couldn't take the pain anymore and couldn't walk, and called 911. She was taken to the hospital and spent the rest of the holiday weekend at the hospital. Finally on Tuesday after Memorial Day the doctor at the hospital was able to talk to her back doctor and her pain management doctor, and they were able to come up with a plan that got her back on her feet. That got her out of the hospital and on her way to a rehab facility. She is progressing, but it has been a struggle to keep her spirits up as she has to be quarantined for 14 days because she is new to the facility, and because of the quarantine she can't have any visitors. This is just one example of the aftereffects of the shutdowns. How many other stories like this, maybe better, maybe worse, are out there? It is going to take a while for things to return to normal.
