Surviving the Spanish Shutdown.

You act as if we are fighting a different enemy and that yours will either weaken like a hurricane as time passes or that you are better prepared.

Bad news. The clock hasn’t started on your recovery yet. It won’t until everyone goes in their house and stays there.

Spain has been forced to not use ventilators on patients 80 and over. If that doesn’t lessen the load, the age limit will be lowered. How many people do you love that would be denied medical care?

This will be your reality too.

Believe it or not, Dan and I are so proud of Spain’s response to this. Sure, the government could have acted faster. But, we are surrounded by fellow citizens that have taken this seriously, followed the rules and as a result, our curve might be flattening. Today, we woke up to a glimmer of hope.

This is my last post for awhile. I hate the new tone my happy blog has taken. When I return, we will be traveling again and enjoying life in Europe. We will embrace how this has changed us and how our everyday lives that seemed so mundane in February were actually full of joy and adventure.

If we all do our part, this too shall pass. Please stay safe and stay home.

Love you,

Nan
