Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22304 – 788:
Here’s the haps:
Back in the saddle again. Thanks to everybody for your kind words and helpful support. I either had better get crackin’ or buy some asbestos boots.
Inspiration comes from a wide variety of sources and now, realizing that I have tens of people who actually come here and read this blog I wonder if there are not some untapped resources out there. For instance, I need some real-life practical advice on a problem. When Mrs. Herb got Covid it turned into “Double Covid Pneumonia” and she has had to be on oxygen for some time and perhaps will be for some time to come. We are learning to deal with that but she is an active woman with adult ADHD and is used to going and going. She could make the Energizer Bunny look like a slot with a discharged battery most days. This has taken some of the wind out of her sails but she still wants to keep going like she did before. One of the biggest problems we seem to be having is this:
She has this fifty-foot hose that goes from the O2 concentrator and lets her travel all around the house. what happens is that a lot of time it winds up looping back on itself and getting a kink in it, similar, I guess, to a garden hose where the water supply gets cut off only it’s her air supply. No, not the eighties band, but her O2 goes down. The real problem is that, even though you straighten the kink in the line out, it seems to always want to go back that way. How do I get it to straighten out and stay straight? With all the stuff she continues to do she can’t carry around a tank all day. You know, this is the twenty-first century, someone should have fixed this in the last millennium.
