Meltdown. Second (Third? Fourth? Twentieth?) one for the day.

He also threw my phone. The screen on that is a mess now, but the phone itself is still working. I've got insurance on it, so hopefully they will replace or fix it.

On the brighter side, I finally found block number 98, that was missing after he threw them earlier.

And he's rehung all the clothes in their closet twice now, after pulling everything (and I mean everything) down twice.

Yeah, not a concept he understands. Hence the meltdown over a website not working.

Since I'm working from home, I've been listening to some Podcasts for background noise. What are your favorite dog related podcasts? I'm typically too busy to really listen to them, but you never know what might sink in subconsciously.

There is also the Scentsabilites Nosework Podcast, but she hasn't done any new ones lately.

I've also discovered an interesting non-dog one called The History of English Podcast, about the evolution of the English language.

Does he actually REHANG your clothes, or is that a euphemism for mom has to put them back?

And all we can do is sigh and move on. I hope all of your bookcases and dressers are tied to the walls. Mine used to empty them and pull them over too in some of his epic performances.

We had a big swing set outside that helped a little (and still do--only it's an industrial sized school playground type these days) His meltdowns aren't physical at least anymore--just verbal and perseverative--VERY perseverative--and he can use the swinging to smooth down some of the worst of it. Sometimes.

Spellcheck on DT doesn't recognize the word "perseverative" Lucky them.

No euphemism. He has to put things back on the hangers and put the hangers on the rod. We might help with the pants, since he has trouble with the clips, but then hand them over for him to put on the rod.

The dresser under their TV is attached to the wall, mainly because he pulled it over a couple of times, back when we had an older CRT TV sitting on it. Now we have a skinny flat screen TV mounted way up on the wall above it.

He'll throw toys, throw food (anyone know how to get koolaid stains off a textured ceiling?) and rip things to shreds, but never emptied my bookcases, thank goodness.

Repaint.

I have textured ceilings which have never been repainted, actually, even when the walls have been.

I guess you have to use a paint sprayer??

Interesting news today for Ear, Nose, and throat physicians.

D; Robert Dodd, MD, PhD; Hamed Sajjadi, MD; Robert K. Jackler, MDStanford University School of MedicineDepartments of Otolaryngology-H&N Surgery and Neurosurgery

The COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating within the United States, and any information we can gain from our international colleagues who have already experienced this, or are currently going through it, should be utilized to protect our patients, our hospital teams and ourselves.The compilation of information below is based mostly on personal communication with international colleagues reporting their individual experiences, and more data is needed before policies are set long-term. However, based on the information below, it would be prudent to exercise an abundance of caution before we can gather more data, so as not to repeat the same mistakes that have been made elsewhere.

Dr. Xiaoguang Tong, our colleague in neurosurgery, serving in one of the hospitals in Wuhan, has informed us that the first case with the most widespread infection in Wuhan was an endoscopic pituitary surgery. This has now also been documented via another source in China Newsweek.<1> All 14 people who came in and out of the OR during that case became infected. He saw this repeat with other endoscopic cases. He has also shared that a significant number of doctors who died in China were ENTs and Ophthalmologists, possibly due to the high viral shedding from the nasal cavity. This has now been confirmed in the media as well.<2>

This logically makes sense to us based on data showing higher viral load in nasal swabs than lower in the respiratory tract, as well as the knowledge that if the viral particles become aerosolized , which appears possible during endoscopy (let alone endoscopic surgery, where the epithelial lining is actively being disrupted), they stay in the air for at least 3 hours, if not longer.<3>,<4>

He has further counseled and warned that he believes endoscopic endonasal cases are among the highest risk cases for spread of infection. Based on their experience in Wuhan, N95 masks were not enough to control this spread. Not until PAPRs (Powered, Air Purifying Respirators) were used during these cases, did the spread become controlled. He also explained that testing twice appeared necessary, separated by 24 hours in between tests, to truly confirm negativity to COVID-19, based on the potential for false negative results, although it is unclear which test was being used and how that test compares to what we are currently using.

From our colleagues in Iran, Dr. Ebrahim Rampa, Professor of Otolaryngology at Tehran University Medical Sciences, Dr. Saee Atighechi, Associate Professor of Otolaryngology at Yazd University School of Medicine, and Dr. Mohammed Hossein Baradanfar, Professor and Chairman of Otolaryngology Yazd University School of Medicine, we have additionally heard from Iran that at least 20 ENTs are currently hospitalized with COVID-19, with 20 more in isolation at home. They are testing only people who have been admitted to the hospital, so those twenty at home are not confirmed, but have classic symptoms. A previously healthy 60yo facial plastic surgeon died from COVID-19 three days ago. A young, otherwise healthy ENT chief resident had a short prodrome, rapidly decompensated and died also. They do not test the deceased, but all his colleagues and faculty think it was from COVID-19.

From our colleague Dr. Puya Deghani-Mobaraki in Italy, he also reports ENTs being affected adversely, but his information is about the possible loss of smell and taste that this virus brings. They are not only seeing it in their patients, but they have noticed it within their own ranks, in otherwise healthy asymptomatic doctors, at rates far above what could be considered normal. This observation has also been reported in the media regarding patients, as an under-reported aspect of this disease process.<5>

Based on this information, and until we know more, we are performing only urgent/emergent cases of endoscopic endonasal surgery at Stanford University at this time. We will be testing these patients pre-operatively for COVID-19 and proceed if negative. We have also requested full PAPRs for ourselves and all team members in the OR for any of these cases that do actually need to move forward, either for cases in which we cannot wait for test results or for cases that test positive but still need to proceed. PAPRs are in even shorter supply than N95 masks, but we feel strongly that they are necessary for our safety and the safety of our teams. Conservation of this precious resource is another reason to limit these operations to the bare minimum at this time. To not heed the cautionary advice of those who have already gone through this and lost their own colleagues, does not seem wise or prudent. In the clinic setting, we have similarly restricted visits to only urgent/emergent patients and have ceased the use of spray anesthetic/decongestants, opting instead for nasal pledgets as needed, but preferably avoiding endoscopy whenever possible. We are using N95 masks, face shields and gowns for all nasal endoscopies.

Our guidelines at Stanford are constantly in evolution based on new information and thanks to the responsiveness of our leadership.

Currently they are:- Elective cases are cancelled for 1 month or longer- Urgent cases (that should be done within 30 days) – 48 hours pre-op COVID testingIf COVID positive – PAPR for all OR staff may be necessary until further data is available- Emergent cases – perform with appropriate PPE (PAPR for all OR staff may be necessary until further data is available)We extend wishes of safety and health to all our otolaryngology and neurosurgery colleagues at this challenging time.

OK, since I'm a self admitted Luddite this shouldn't even embarrass me but it does. I don't even know where and how to find radio Podcasts--can anyone explain it simply?

Textured ceilings can be repainted with a roller--but if it's koolaid use a heavy duty undercoat for the first coat--one that says it won't let previous stains seep through--koolaid is incredibly pervasive--but with a stain blocking under coat you can then recoat with whatever you want to use and it's be all the same color when you are through. Yes, spraying is easier but you do have to do the same thing and keeping spray off of stuff that doesn't need painting or isn't the same color it difficult. Use a medium to long nap roller--not short nap or flat.

If any place in Texas has a Battery Plus outfit they can replace any kind of screen on any kind of hand held device and I know a couple of people who have taken things in to have them replace screens--it would seem that they live up to their reputation and advertising.

Cool

Well yesterday just before quitting time at our office (surgeons) we got word of no more elective surgery’s at free standing surgical centers.
So we spent all week rescheduling cases that were booked in a hospital setting....to our free standing surgical centers ...to find out we have to call the parents again and cancel the surgical procedures altogether.
We knew it was coming (no elective surgeries at any locations) but was not sure when.......also (see article posted earlier) when we got word of the danger to surgical staff in the area of performing sinus endoscopies we knew the end was near. You see with surgery you can be as clean as possible but during many surgeries we use equipment that sends a lot of a patients “stuff” into The air within the operating room. Thus becoming a hazard for anyone (staff) breathing that air within the operating room. So we are now in a hold mode ....as of now we are still reporting to work as there are many phone calls to respond to and we are still seeing pediatric patients with urgent needs. All routine follow up appointments etc have been asked to postpone their appointments.Most parents are very understanding although some parents think if they scream a lot surgery will happen, but this accomplishes nothing as we just have to keep repeating “we understand your frustration”......I am beginning to wonder to some people NEVER listen to the news ?

As of Monday, I'm on work from home. Such uncharted territory. My entire job has changed. My work for the church is about 2/3 helping prepare for worship on Sunday. And of course we're closed for worship right now. Even though we're offering alternate options online, it doesn't require the stuff I do, so all of the work I do is just...poof! And the other parts of my job involve working with the staff that do programming for kids and youth, and all of that is also cancelled. They are also working on alternative stuff to do online, but for right now...again, most of my job is just gone. I'm currently working on reading books on church systems for the pastor and taking extensive notes. I'm also doing a lot of brainstorming on different things to offer online. But it's weird. I want to be sure the church is still paying me for a reason.

Interesting times all around. I work in a hospital setting doing anesthesia. All of our elective cases have ceased. Although, we are still busy since a lot of our surgeries are not elective. There are many what ifs looming. Our hospital has acquired 41 more ventilators in anticipation of needing them for corona virus victims. The problems for us, as I'm sure is with every hospital is staffing. If this becomes as large as expected, we will not have the staff to even manage the ventilators not to mention the patient load if the healthcare workers become infected. Our other predicament is personal protective equipment. Right now even, they're locked up and have to be signed out to the staff. The reserve just won't be there.

The other issue we are facing as anesthesia providers is the particle size of the virus is so small, we are having to use special filters on our machines so it doesn't get into our machines. When will those filters run out......

It's funny how in normal times, they require such restrictions of what we can and can not do or have but now, they say if you run out of N95 masks, make a bandana.....

Either way, I will be there as long as I am healthy and take measures to protect myself. It does amaze me that even still, some people are not treating this as a serious issue. Everyone must do their part or it's a bust. Also, Matt and I have been trying to support small businesses as much as possible at this time. I encourage you to do the same. Help your neighbors.

These times will either bring out the best in people or the worst in people.

all our research lab techs are in a similar boat. they're doing classes online, and have been given things to do, but their primary job went poof overnight. i wouldn't be surprised if some of them are cross-training to help in the clinical labs.

Well today we have patients that have been on antibiotics for 3 weeks... and for sinus conditions.....they take the meds and just as they are completing the medications we do Ct Scans as this would be the best time to see into the sinus cavity of the disease is gone........so today the Ct scans facilities are saying ...why are we still having patients getting the follow up Ct scans (just after finishing the last does of antibiotics) we explain that are finishing up patient care.....Radiologists say...NOPE they are not going to do the Ct Scans as it is not emergency care and does not jeopardise the life of the patient currently.
This will be an interesting day......medical professional are trying to define "the new guidelines" issued to them......lots of gray areas.

This is how the guidelines reads currently: Late Friday, an Executive Order was handed down from the Governor’s office restricting elective surgeries that “if delayed, does not place a patient’s immediate health, safety or wellbeing at risk, or will, if delayed will not contribute to the worsening of a serious or life threatening medical condition.”

So we are trying to get them to chew this a little finer in straight forward terms. Professionals are beginning to argue over their interpretations of this order.

Ugg!!!
