Hey all. Just to let you know I am alive and kicking. On Thursday Sept 2nd I ended up in the ER. My fever wouldn’t break, and by the time it got up to 102.5 it was time to figure something out. I was having horrible stomach cramping and I could not stop belching. The fever wasn’t the issue, it was the horrible belly cramping. But the fever was a concern, so I ended up at the ER and before I left I got the Regen-Cov infusion. I went home and spent the next few hours sweating and trying to deal with the stomach issue while waiting for the meds to be ready at the drugstore.
When the temp hit 103, it was back to the ER. Where I sat for 2 hours in the LOBBY. I felt so bad for the staff, they were under water with all kinds of patients. It was a completely different place from earlier when they hardly had any rooms filled with people.
I finally called Hubster to come get me and he got me home and we started the meds for the stomach issues, the slight pneumonia, and the cough. Less than 24 hours later, I was a completely different person. I woke up with no fog and the fever was slowly coming down.
And now I am working on regaining my strength. My Mom is still in the hospital on oxygen, Hubster is over his illness after an extreme headache, and my sister’s illness has devolved into a sinus infection.
So, an explanation of how things work. My vaccinated Mom had full blown Covid, which I got a full viral load of, so I ended up with a full case of it. My vaccinated sister got a small viral load of it due to timing, after Mom’s full viral load had waned. Hubster got a small viral load of it due to my not quite infectiousness at the time we saw each other. I was the only one who spent enough time in Mom’s presence to get a full dose of the infection.
Thank you for all the well wishes and emails. I do appreciate all of them. Hopefully I will get back to sewing, knitting, and maybe even blogging.
