Rural hospitals know COVID-19 is coming, but they don’t know how strong

As of Wednesday, about 9 percent of the state’s nearly 10,000 confirmed cases were in rural counties, where hospitals have struggled in recent decades to stay open.

And while the coronavirus has been slower to spread in smaller communities in Texas, medical professionals know it is coming. What they don’t know is which town will be hit hardest — and how significant a financial loss will be.

 This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog….. we laughed a lot. 

Have a nice weekend and a joyous Easter at home.
