Congratulations to you graduates & all of New York States graduates may all your dreams come true & have a prosperous future after you graduate college. Stay safe & healthy.🌈👩‍🎓👨‍🎓🇱🇷
What happened at St. Mary`s church? Usually we can count on you to keep us informed.
CRISIS WITHIN A CRISIS Covid 19 is world wide. But the deeper you look, the closer to home it comes. My sister has end-stage COPD, it's not glamorous and it holds no cure. In January 2020, she was rushed to the emergency room in Cortland, NY fighting for her life. They were not equipped to handle her case through the weekend and was immediately transported to Upstate Community Hospital in Syracuse, NY where she continued to fight. She finally had to undergo a tracheotomy and the placement of a feeding tube. By February 2020 she was transported to the only hospital that was available and equipped to help with her rehabilitation, Post Acute, Wilkes Barre, PA. She progressed, gained weight, oxygen level was good and was able to move on her own and eventually could talk to her family on the phone. Her next step, however, was a nursing home for further rehabilitation. Unfortunately, the insurance was running out and Covid 19 patients were moving in. The hospital needed Linda removed. She clearly needed further medical care, but money is the bottom line, after all. Because of the pandemic, there were no available nursing homes or rehabilitation centers open for new patients. She was to be transported back to her home with only her family to care for her. Friday, 4/10/20 she was transported by ambulance across the PA – NY border to her doctor's office. She was the only patient in the office at the time. Her sister/health care proxy and primary caregiver is a probation officer and picked her up to settle her back at home. She was met by another sister/Inventory Coordinator who was to make afternoon care trips, brother/roofer who moved in to help care for her overnight, as well as our 82-year-old father. Late-night Saturday, 4/11/20, Linda was having trouble breathing and needed to go back to the emergency room. From there she was immediately transported to Upstate Community Hospital. The attending doctor told my sister, that Linda should never have been released from the hospital in PA in the first place. Later that day they called to inform everyone that Linda was positive with Covid 19. Each of my family members, as well as the home health care provider, are now quarantined for the next two weeks. They understand the reason for this quarantine is to help slow the spread of this terrible virus. What they don't understand is why a hospital would send someone home to be cared for by family members knowing she needed a medical care facility, knowing there were post-acute Covid 19 patients at the hospital and knowing not one of the family members were trained as health care providers. They also understand that patients need to show symptoms of the virus before testing and there seems to be a 14 day incubation period. But do not understand why further precautions were not taken by Post Acute, Wilkes Barre, PA to assure everybody's safety. We all know of the possibility of Covid 19 exposure. Putting people in the direct line of danger is a crime onto itself. My 82-year-old father with underlying health issues was exposed – he lives with my 82-year-old mother, also with underlying health issues and a nephew. My brother that moved in to help Linda at night was exposed – he is a diabetic and cancer survivor. The second sister that was exposed is a mother of two. The sister left in charge of Linda's care, also exposed, has severe asthma and unable to receive her treatments at this time. She also has a son with MCad, medium-chain acyl CoA dehydrogenase deficiency. A simple stomach virus could kill him and he now needs to be separated from his mother in order to keep him safe. Covid 19 is out there, believe it. Social distancing is not a joke. Even loved ones leaving medical care facilities are not clear. Be aware and ask questions. Now, at this point, it's a waiting game for myself and my family. My sister Linda is currently on a ventilator and being given medications to hopefully get her through this. My parents a frantic with the thought of one positive Covide 19 case and the possibility of three other children becoming ill. We're not even able to console those closest to us. Take Covid 19 seriously, but don't be a fanatic. Hope you all stay safe.
Thank you to all of the law enforcement that protected the public and managed to arrest the suspect without any more violence. Prayers for the officer that was shot. Great Job thank you for your service to the community.

I realize the common council meeting is important. But did anyone cover the Gathering for Solidarity at the Beth-El Temple last night? I believe well over 100 people were there to show our support to the UU church since the painting of the swastika on their building, as well as to stand up to any sign of hate, racism or antisemitism in our community. Speakers from many different faith traditions were there, and the gathering confirmed our determination to always stand against any expression of hatred.
A few floor seats remain and there is balcony available. But no matter where you sit there is not a bad seat in the house, and there will be dancing in the aisle so bring your dancing shoes
