still Fighting It

Just an update. I got out of ER late Monday night or early Tuesday. Sent me home with a tank of oxygen.  I hooked myself up to that once I got home. Then I slept all day yesterday. They told me at the ER I had pneumonia due to covid-19 so I am just as surprised as anybody that they sent me home but the doctor said it was not so bad. Bad enough for the oxygen though which reminds me I have to call to get another tank. Thank you to everyone who keeps checking up on me and wishing me well. I think I'm going to beat this, feel a little bit better today than in last 10 days.

Getting all tanked up has a new meaning nowadays.

PS, my nephew (a guy in his early forties) told me that he was on O2 for two months following his infection. I guess it takes time to weather the storm.

Keep up the good fight!

Sheesh, all this COVID bullchit is, is an excuse for grown ups to act like bloody children.

Unless you are dirt poor you might consider purchasing an oxygen generator for home. They cost a few hundred and generally require a signed doctors order...which for people on Medicare is generally a formality. An O2 tank doesn't last very long and I you are O2 dependent a generator can make a big difference.
