Stu’s World XLIV

I must apologize to everyone for skipping last week’s Stu’s World. Sunday I had a dear friend pass away and just didn’t feel like writing at all. I was mad at the world that day to be honest.

My friend was scheduled to have a liver transplant in New Orleans but they would not do it because of the Coronavirus scare so they sent him to a hospital in Maryland only to be told upon arriving that they wouldn’t do it either for the same reason. He died on the drive back home.

Spiritually speaking I know where he is! His body is whole and he is the presence of the Lord. But from a human stand point…what the freak?!?

Hospitals are to save lives. The New Orleans hospital should be ashamed of themselves. Screw the Coronavirus. If a person needs life saving surgery you do it because as a doctor and nurse you took an oath to preserve life.

And we can’t do a real funeral because of the “social distancing”. My friend, a wonderful husband, great father will have 5 members of his family will be at the funeral home πŸ™

Sorry, I’m still upset over it all. He should be recovering from a life saving surgery…

Work has been going great. We are actually busier at moment than before the virus hit. We have taken precautions of course and changed how we interact with customers. But I actually like it better as we can get our jobs done more efficiently without having their trucks and trailers all up in our way.

Our owner has stated that even IF we were to have to shut down that all employees would still be paid for the duration of the closure. This coming from a man who orders hospital supplies for the our local hospital and donates them all. Not every day you see one the wealthiest in the tristate area do good with his resources 😊 I do work for a good company!

Our little prayer group is still happening. We have just broken it down into two groups of 5 people as to comply with the no more than 7 people in a group limit.

I have, because of the virus and me working in the public, have chosen to not see the kids during this time and it freaking driving me crazy. Video chats are how we talk until this is over.

Here’s a photo Brandon took of himself on Snapchat using an aging filter

That could be him in another five years. But that jawline…nah…

I miss them πŸ™

I have been talking with Angie a little more lately. We have even done a few video chats 😊 I love seeing her smile. Just wish I could be there for here physically and not just via conversation and prayer. She’s going through so much.

She shared with me that our beloved pastor growing up is having a difficult time being apart from his bride. Mrs. Pat broke her right leg recently and due to the Coronavirus Bro. Step can not be with her during this time. It breaks my heart. They are inseparable.

Here is Mrs. Pat recovering from surgery and getting her P.T. in the nursing home while Bro Step is at another nursing home. Please be in prayer for these two wonderful people. They have been a part of my life since I was like 6.

Here is a picture of the backyard/field.

With all the rain we have been having it is like a marsh back there. I did manage to get the front yard mowed this weekend. That was a chore. One more week without rain and I can start on the backyard/field. Joy…

My birthday Tuesday will be rather boring as restaurants are closed…nothing to do and no one to spend it with 😣. But I will still celebrate the day God chose for me to be born. I’ll be jamming to music and watching Season 4 of Supergirl!

I hope everyone is trying to be as safe as possible. Using the “quarantine” time for quality family time and spousal intimacy.

Have a great week everyone! God bless you all.

  4. I’m sorry to hear of your grieving and your friend. Those circumstances are very strange. πŸ€¨πŸ˜•
    For your birthday, maybe you could buy one of those single-serving brownie mixes and a box of candles. If you do, be sure to post a pic of you blowing out your candles. 😊 We’ll all sing Happy Birthday to you.
