  1. CARGO says:

    The hospitals are so full they are starting to cancel scheduled surgeries. My mom was supposed to have a hip replacement next week now canceled as all the beds are full. They are only doing emergency surgery if patient can wait they have to. She’s in pain and has very limited mobility but she will not die if she waits so she has to. Not complaining she understands people w/ covid need the beds more.

    It amazes me the trumpers are still saying it is a hoax & refuse to wear masks
