Yesterday, when I was in an elevator at Tufts Medical Center, overloaded with awareness AND worry about being out and about during the coronavirus pandemic, I saw this:
These days, we are dealing with an overload of
- bad news,
- uncertainty about the future,
- deaths, and
- information (which is why I linked to a load of other material throughout this list).
Thankfully, I’ve had an overload of good care from my long-time cardiologist, Dr. Deeb Salem (featured in an overload of my previous posts here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here).
Even though this blog might have an overload of photos of Dr. Salem, here is another one from my appointment with him yesterday:
During the coronavirus pandemic, frontline health workers like Dr. Salem have to wear an overload of Personal Protective Equipment. Dr. Salem, who has an overload of cardiology students wanting to work with him, told one of them yesterday that he always schedules me for his last appointment of the day because we have an overload of things to talk about. Yesterday’s overloaded conversation included
- Dr. Salem’s personal experience of working with Dr. Anthony Fauci (who is “a very smart and very good guy”),
- discussions of my having had the coronavirus in March and possible lasting effects of that,
- scheduling an echocardiogram to make sure that there is no permanent damage to my heart because of COVID-19,
- the possibility of Dr. Salem and I writing a book together,
- my stating that Dr. Salem and I have an overload of respect and love for each other,
- Dr. Salem saying, “I think you’re doing great,” and
- scheduling our next overloaded appointment for the day after my 68th birthday in February.
Dr. Salem said he was interviewed on Boston TV recently about his experiences working with Dr. Fauci, but I can’t find that interview in the overload of videos out there about Dr. Fauci.
Here’s an overload of other photos from yesterday:
Michael overloads our plates with nutritious food, ever day.
Here‘s “Overload” by Zinnia, which has been loaded over 7 million times on YouTube.
I’m looking forward to an overload of comments, below.
As always, I have an overload of gratitude to all, including YOU.
Maybe it would be easier to find it by placing Drs Salem and Fauci both in the search engine, Ann. Have a great Thursday. I have to start my work-at-home shift for the library now!
