Instead, here a more peaceful transition to the after world.Initially we asked about the suburb of residence (hotspot areas) and Covid-19 contacts as screening tools to identify who might be infected with the coronavirus.
It brought the human touch to the black and white clips of Normandy I used to watch on the History Channel.I hoped that some day when my grandchildren asked, “Grandpa, what was it like to live/work in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic?," I would have a written recollection capturing some of the smaller moments and the essence of the pandemonium when the memories had grown hazy and the horrors had been softened by the rose-tinted glasses of retrospection.The phrase that kept rolling on my tongue at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic was the words of Wilfred Owen's poem “DSeeing news flashes of health personnel from Europe who had died, it served as a form of sarcastic encouragement for the winter of discontent I knew was to follow.I was “fortuitously” scheduled to do my rural/outreach residency rotation to coincide exactly with the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Perhaps it was the denial and grief of mourning a sudden death that led to this The two weeks of the worst surge were met by the frequent sight of funeral parlour staff in PPE loading white body bags into the hearse. Most worrying, my mom and gran were the latest Covid-19 test statistics. No multi-storey building of glistening glass like Milpark Hospital, or concrete like Entering a ward entailed the time-consuming donning of personal protective equipment (PPE).
She asked: “When will I be discharged?” A fleeting thought crossed my mind: “Perhaps never”.Doctors are used to severity index scores or mortality prediction calculations that help us decide on patient outcomes and the rapidity and aggressiveness needed to treat the condition. The plague of stigma. I decided to write short notes and thoughts on my cellphone during the Covid-19 pandemic as both a form of diary but also a written recollection of a global historical event, the like not seen in the last century.I always asked my granddad what it was like to live through the World War 2. The fear, anxiety, stress and hope of the evening shift end to make way for the relief of rest and respite until the next 24-hour shift. The stomach knot provoked by daily new infections in the 13,000s of mid-July have been replaced by a collective sigh of relief at the lower numbers. A very horrific tale that clearly left a gaping indelible wound in the region's psyche.Walking the Checkers Hyper aisles you hear Afrikaans music in the background, and the entrance board with store management photographs has a notable absence of black faces. The usual terminal agonised breathing of patients is painful to watch. There was no air hunger with breathing rates in the 30s when the body tissues were almost completely starved of oxygen.I could no longer rely on the eye or a hunch to quickly assess the severity of sickness. She asked: “Will I see my family again.” I lied through gritted teeth and replied: “Perhaps”. The audacity to profit during a health and economic pandemic. Along the road to the town there are constant reminders. Rightfully, nursing staff felt trepidation about entering without the necessary PPE. Patients with oxygen levels less than 50% of normal were walking/talking and reassuringly comfortable. (PROSE: The Three Paths) Another account had the Doctor writing in his Five Hundred Diary from his stay at 76 Totter's Lane onwards. Every doctor knows the relief of the sun rising through the ward windows. In a climate where civil servants have been offered no pay increases and where unemployment is fast approaching 50%.
Covid-19 often tolled the death knell for these patients.The thought did occur to me that if we running short of oxygen ports, I would have to deprive one of these patients of oxygen to save another. Fortunately, both responded to treatment.At some point we ran out of oxygen wall points and had to try get oxygen cylinders from other wards to keep patients alive.We were working at maximum pace but still not keeping up. The long-awaited downward trajectory. Inspection as the basis for triage could not be used. My family members provided home-cooked delicious meals daily which were much appreciated at the end of a hectic Covid-19 shift. A sort of metallic conglomeration of man and woman, one holding an ear of wheat/corn and the other a mining shovel as symbolism of the foundations of the region.It's a small town where doctors and patients often worked on the mines or farms.I heard several times the story of a mining accident in the mid 1990s. Very few doctors complained about working extra-long shifts or additional unpaid overtime hours to help fight Covid-19.Covid-19 upgraded a lot of regional services, including the acquisition of new ventilators and high flow oxygen machines.
Dr Diary. We asked about coughing, shortness of breath and fever.
(PROSE: Extracts from the Doctor's 500 Year Diary) H… A locomotive in a deep shaft mine had crashed into a mining elevator shaft, snapping the supporting cables and leaving 50 plus miners dead after plummeting in the elevator. It was a memorial announcement with a photo of a smiling senior nurse who died in a private hospital ICU.We heard the story of a patient who died the day before. Sometimes it felt a bit like being in the film There were no crowds cheering “Maximus, Maximus” to raise morale in this fight.Not infrequently patients or nurses would shout your name saying, “doctor, when next am I going to be seen, I have been waiting hours,” or nurses calling you for another patient who had arrived with extremely low oxygen saturation, or to certify a patient as deceased. It was returned to him by his mentor K'anpo Rimpoche, shortly before the Doctor's regeneration into his second form.
