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.

Watch the o2 level closely Franc. 89 indicates the need of supplemental oxygen. I had pneumonia 3 years ago and my level dropped to 89. They had me on one of nose oxygen breathing things.
You might consider getting something like that if possible. They encouraged me to walk also to raise the o2 level. With covid I'm unsure if that would be good for you or not. I'll suggest contacting your dr office and ask their advice.

Everything I read is that 89% is danger level. Consider getting into the emergency room.

Thanks guys but it is back up now. 94%
I have supplemental O2 on hand. Wasn't needed.
Bicycle exercises with my legs, on my back, in bed. The wife on standby with O2 if I started to turn blue

Down 20 full lbs. I've been trying to get to185 Lbs for years now.

MADE IT! :clap:

I took the wife in the second time @ 88% and had the Covid Pneumonia they put her on O2, she hit 84% a couple days after that, and that is when she got the Remdesivir, She said that after 2 days with the treatment it made a big difference. I agree with everyone else. See a doctor at this point. The Covid Pneumonia is different than normal Pneumonia. You get what they call crazy paving with cracked glass. You are still able to exhale pretty good so fresh O2 is coming in but the lung condition makes it difficult to get the O2 into your lungs. Because you are able to exhale, the sensation of shortness of breath is minimal even with very low O2 levels. If your lungs then fill with fluid you degrade very rapidly and end up on a ventilator. You don't want that.

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.
From what I have been hearing, I guess I did not piece together there is a pattern or progression to look for.
Personally I know people with wildly different effects and symptoms. Some are common like taste and smell loss, some less so.
It is good to know that in the profession there is experience in what to watch for.

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.
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.

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.
