My adventure ithe Covid19 Part 12 - The Thank You Post.

 By the title, you can see that this it a thank you post.

There are many people I would like to thank for their care of me while I was in the hospitals.  Unfortunately, even though I asked them their names, I have for gotten most of their names. 

On February 15, 2021 I went into the UTMB Hospital in Angleton, Texas because of Covid19.  It was not long before I was told I was going to be transported to UTMB Clear Lake.  An ambulance took me there not long after I entered the hospital in Angleton.  My first few days were fuzzy at best memory-wise.

What I do know is that I was taken care of in a caring and professional way when I was there.  It was a long stay, but I eventually progressed and got well.  The staff, the nurses and the doctors there were all great. 

Yes, I said I got well there at UTMB Clear Lake.  I was released with a clean bill of health.  No need to be on oxygen.  No real restrictions.

After 1 day at home, I became very ill.  On March 12, 2021, I entered UTMB in Angleton.  There was good news this time.  I did not have to be transferred.  The problem is the fact that I developed blood clots in my lungs.  Breathing became a chore, and I was on oxygen 24/7.  The staff here was also very caring and professional.  I could not have asked for better care.  I was released on March 15,

I developed a leg infection (also from a blood clot) and had to return to the hospital for treatment.  Fortunately, it was for treatment and release.

The history recap was for reference only.

I wish to express my gratitude, my genuine thanks to all who cared for me at both UTMB facilities. I can tell that they are professional and really put in their best to take care of their patients.  I wish I could thank them all by name, but my memory is not good enough, even though I believe I asked each one for their name.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. (I do not care if I sound like Gomer Pyle here)


 Stay safe!
