Beating COVID 10 with a
Spoonful of Courage
Dr. Charles Page pt 1
Everyone has tests, trials and some tribulations in their life. It is a part of this life. Christians have a better grasp of understanding there is a life to come. One that we can only get a glimpse of, from time to time, while on this side of Eternity.
But, sometimes even Christians will falter a bit when under extreme pressure. Whether it is sickness, the loss of a loved one, a child battering a terminal illness, the loss of a business or a job. All of these things can test our Faith. Sometimes, even distract us enough to lose sight of our Faith.
Right now, at the time of this recording, this nation (and the world) are dealing with the Corona Virus or COVID-19.
My guest today is Dr. Charles Page from Nacagdoches, Texas. Dr. Page has been on our program before as we talked about his book, “A Spoonful of Courage for the Sick and Suffering,” where Dr. Charles Page shares some examples of how some of his patients taught him a thing or two about dealing with adversity.
I recommend you go back to our archives and listen to episodes 618, 619 and 620, because there was a LOT of good stuff in there that Dr. Page shared.
Dr. Page tells folks that he is the best guy to see on the worst day of their life! Praise God!
Dr. Page is a surgeon, storyteller and author of several books for both adults and children and he has taken time from his rounds this morning to join us on the broadcast and talk about this COVID-19 situation currently in the news.
Help me welcome back to the program, Dr. Charles Page! Doctor, thank you for joining us today!
Dr. Page, just for the sake of those that may not have heard your prior interview from six months or so ago, explain to us why you say you are the ‘best guy to see on the worst day of your life?”
Doctor, what is your assessment of where we are now with the COVID 19 pandemic in the US?
Are there some health care workers, who are more prone to contract the virus than others?
Doctor, you provide care in an underserved area. What’s the difference between the health care systems in rural America vs. urban area like New York?
What’s going through your mind and the mind of most health care workers right now?
As a surgeon, you are no strangers to hospitals. With the rapid escalation of the coronavirus, what can you tell us about when and how to be admitted to the emergency room?
If the symptoms are quite serious, who is the procedure for admittance?
Have you noticed any habits or characteristics of those who seem to thrive, despite their health challenges, be it a positive diagnosis of the coronavirus or any other illness?
