    What Are You Doing For Thanksgiving?

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | November 15th, 2020

    What Are You Doing For Thanksgiving?

    Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I have been hosting Thanksgiving every year for over 20 years. By this time, I would have planned the menu and ordered all my meats and fish. This is the day I will deviate from my norm. I tell people I am a vegetarian except for Thanksgiving Day.  So when I was recently asked, what are you doing for Thanksgiving? I responded, I would still be having Thanksgiving dinner but it will only be with the people who have been in my bubble since March. I will not be having anyone to the house.

    COVID cases are on the rise everywhere.  We cannot have Thanksgiving as we usually do.  We are in our third wave of this pandemic and the health care systems in the Unites States are almost at their breaking point. For those who read my blog weekly, I know that I am preaching to the choir. My hope is that you share this blog with your circle to remind everyone that we all have a role to play to fight this virus. This is not the time to get tired. We can turn things around if we each do our part.

    These are the top five blog posts to remind of you what you can do:

    What are you doing about the Coronavirus? –  Information provided by a virologist on what we as individuals can do to protect ourselves from the virus.

    Let us do our Part – Reminder of things that we can do to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

    What is your New Normal?  –  Includes information on the new first aid kit and telehealth.

    Do you have ‘Pandemic Fatigue”? – discusses ways to deal with pandemic fatigue.

    Boosting your Immunity on your Birthday – Lists ways that we can build our immunity to fight this virus.

     We have to remember that it is not only about us, it about our family, it is about our friends and it is about our community.   There are many ways that we can celebrate Thanksgiving safely that are meaningful. Each person in my bubble (my two daughters who have been working from home and my husband) has a favorite Thanksgiving dish. I have decided to prepare those dishes. None of them chose Turkey, so this year at least one bird will be saved.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
