The Washington Post offers this article: Monks in New Mexico desert dedicated to hospitality reflect on two years without guests

Have been meaning to head up there. Their beer is (was?) drinkable and I bought it to support them.

Not surprised that some who arrived stormed the gate ... entitlement pervades.

Why? Walmart is open, Hospitals are treating patients placing themselves at great risk.
I sit at my wife's bedside as I write this she was a patient sitter, ministering to those who listen, she contracted covid pneumonia and is very sick. I had to rush her to the ER yesterday, thought she was gonna crash. She is oxygen dependent as some of you know her sister only 55 died in October, she contracted this illness as a nurse as well.

Why should they isolate themselves when no one else has such a privilege?

Why should they isolate themselves? Because they made a decision that the optimal course was to close the gate rather than rely upon others to be responsible enough to police themselves. Which I think was a wise decision.

The important issue here, though, is your wife's health. I just said a prayer for her and will try to remember her whenever I do pray.

Thankyou for your prayer, you are a miracle worker, hehehehe, she seemed to suddenly pop out of last nite. Friends helped me transport her to an appointment when the doc saw her he said we gotta do something different. Scared the doc. But she is on steroids and breathing treatments and like I said last nite her normal animation returned while a friend was visiting. Like a switch was flipped.
Again thankyou as for the other, Im sorry I can just be a hard ass and it hasnt always benefited me. I just found out Im not the cowboy I thought I was either.

We all know that I am not the miracle worker.

BTW, if you're taking care of your woman, you're a cowboy

Thanks it has been very scary 3 trips to the ER and one nite in the Hospital. What I have learned from this is early treatment with steroids especially if you develop pneumonia is key. Get yourselves Budesonide and the nebulizer air pump you can find them on the web, it turned her around. Lots of info out there on this from Dr Bartlett (Odessa TX) and Dr McCullough they are being demonized but I have seen it for myself.
