Good news!Day 12 ( I think)
Totally confused today, weirdest dreams.
Wife is much better.
We are out of about everything. My son stopped by with fresh groceries and, good news about work. Everyone is safe and running well.
I cannot take a deep breathe without pain. not sure that is a good thing.
O2 profusion at 89%. I'm staying in bed for a while yet.
County called with a bunch of questions. I'm still in quarantine for ten more days.
From what I have been hearing, I guess I did not piece together there is a pattern or progression to look for.I'd say Franc is doing ok.
One has to truly know the ins and outs of covid.
I've been watching his posts with a nurse's eye.
Do you feel yourself improving? When the recovery starts its the same ride out as the one that brought you in. The fatigue lasts for weeks and weeks. How is the wife doing? She likely got it a few days ahead of you.Did some of that yesterday. I didn't evaporate so I guess I'm still amoungst the living
One of my biggest battles as been depression. Sunlight helps with that.
What Marty said!I didn't get depressed I got irritated. It hits everyone a little different. You have had it long enough now that likely you are not contagious anymore, just feeling the shitty symptoms. Also if it was going to get worse and send you to the hospital, it likely would have already done that. So as crappy as it is you are healing.
I didn't understand that you are his wife. Sometime it takes me a while to catch on . I'm so glad that you are doing better and that you can take care of him until he gets better too. I imagine that he's a handful.Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. We have had a very rough couple weeks and are now on the slow road to recovery. I am about 4-5 days ahead of Franc, still very weak but each day getting better and gaining strength. I’ve kept watch on our vitals, made sure we both drank plenty fluids, took vitamins and zinc, and sat out in the sunshine when the weather permitted. My oxygen stayed between 95-98. After the bout with him needing oxygen, Franc‘s O2 has been holding between 90-95. For someone who is used to being continually active, is has been very hard on him. He is gaining strength, but slowly.
For symptoms, they tell you about body aches, headache, fatigue and lack of appetite. But it does not prepare you for the intensity of it. In addition to the aches and fatigue, I had a constant piercing pain on one side of my head that caused my scalp to be extremely sensitive to touch. Like the nerve endings were under attack. I swear COVID was eating my brain. That lasted about 5 days. Eventually fading but left it difficult to concentrate.
Our grandson tested positive, but he is fairing much better than we have. I took the granddaughter to be tested today. She stayed isolated in her rooms downstairs, but claims a sore throat, so best be sure. Both grandkids had one shot of the Pfizer, so maybe that helped them
Again, thanks for your concern. Franc speaks highly of his Forum friends.
Well, that's because we were toying with you guys about it.I didn't understand that you are his wife. Sometime it takes me a while to catch on . I'm so glad that you are doing better and that you can take care of him until he gets better too. I imagine that he's a handful.
It's gonna take a lot more than something they whipped up in Wuhan China to put down this ole Cherrokee.Just nice to see you are advancing out of covid. You had us worried.
