    Did you ever stop at Franks that closed last year? I highly recommend The Garden Co. Marketplace & Cafe next time you pass through Schulenburg.

    I was looking to buy a headset, not masks. Not that it matters but I'm actually very sick. I've been on dialysis for many years now. If I caught this virus I'd most certainly die from it. Every other day I dialyze in a large room with 20+ people in it with no protection. Any one person in that room that gets the virus is probably going to kill the rest of us. That's my life right now.

    Thanks. It's something I've dealt with for a long time but adding this worry on top of it sucks. I guess we're all dealing with this in some way. I know my mom who is elderly is afraid of leaving the house right now. Fortunately Houston has not been hit like some other cities.

    Not to pry but I thought long term patients could do it at home.

    What precautions are these places taking for fever or testing. Originally I saw reports that this virus does kidney damage but it is not in the list of preconditions that put people at high risk. Hypertension which renal patients probably also have but have you done any research on this?

    It was an Amazon sale, not a third party. I don't know how they handle that there but the lady I chatted with at Amazon said their web team was responsible for it. Maybe she really had no idea and just said that. From the chat.

    We do have our website team in charge of this.
    I will escalate this issue to them so this will be corrected.
    The website you got the image is Amazon smile, is that right?

    that's correct.

    We surely did not want this to happen considering the current situation with the pandemic.
    I will contact them and see what's going on.
    For the meantime I will issue a full refund.

    Probably clueless. Up to last year I spent ~1m a year on Amazon and we would spend a lot of time on chat dealing with lost orders. 99% of their chat people were clueless.

    Nah, Buck is cool with me. It's just that this virus is doubly dangerous for dialysis patients because we can suffer shortness of breath as we retain fluid. Anything that would put more stress on the respiratory system is bad news.
