    And yet here I sit in the bloody parking lot of the ER as my younger daughter has chest pains (NOT COVID) and I’m not allowed inside with her. She has Myotonic Dystrophy Type I which is the muscles inability to relax. One possible result you may ask? How about cardiac arrest? I’m not saying that’s the issue but she has been complaining of chest pains since before work this evening. It finally just got to the point I decided to bring her in.

    Both of us wear masks and are not showing ANY symptoms yet I’m not allowed to be with her. That’s crap and everyone knows it

    God, man, you have not been given a break this past year. I am so sorry. Please let us know how she is.

    I'm sorry Cowboy...I sure hope everything is ok with your daughter. I know not being allowed in the hospital sucks. My wife was in the hospital for 8 days in Aug with a serious blood infection that attacked her already leaky heart valve....my son and I could not see her.
    Then of course in Sept I was in the hospital for 11 days after my accident. Again, my wife and son could not come in to see me...
    Hang in there buddy.

    Thanks guys. She just texted me saying the doctor thinks it’s related to her myotonic dystrophy but that her heart is fine. Think one hell of a debilitating muscle spasm in her chest. However they are doing more tests (waiting on an X-ray result right now) so still sitting here in the parking lot instead of the room with her.

    One of the scary things that we both have had on our minds is what the geneticist first told her when he realized she might have it (before the test confirmed it). At 16 years of age she heard the words sudden cardiac arrest as a possible consequence she would face at any time. It really floored her and has been a fear of mine ever since. This is actually the first time we have had to deal with the chest pains as most of her issues have involved her jaw, hands, hips, or knees locking up (she broke our dining room table in August when her knee locked and she fell into it).

    No, it is crap. If they'd gone to WalMart together, they'd both be allowed in. If they'd booked a flight somewhere, they'd be sitting elbow-to-elbow sharing an armrest. But a medical emergency? Best separate them so they can't be there to support one-another. *rollseyes*

    Walmart isn't our last line of defense..... A hospital is..... No hospital in the world is letting anyone who isn't a patient in right now ..... Masks are not perfect... Even doctors wearing N 95 masks are getting { and transmitting } the virus.... One person transmitting in a hospital and you have an outbreak .... We've already seen it here ..... { St. Paul's Vancouver and Burnaby Hospital } The last thing we want is to risk our last line of defense against the virus.... I understand Cowboy's frustration .... It is his daughter ... But common sense must prevail in disease prevention .....
