On March 15, 2020, we went in to Covid-19 Lockdown! Stopped going out did everything they said, we have not eaten in a restaurant since then.
We did the Right Things! Better than most!
We only shop for necessities.
We were among the first to get the vaccines and are oh so thankful we did!
Most of you have listened to me moan about dizzy and headaches and can't walk the dog and screaming I'M STRESSED OUT from the Blog. Brain Fog, I thought I was dying or coming down with dementia
Four weeks ago I reported I called the doctor and had a video call, next I reported a visit to the doctor 2 weeks ago. She diagnosed Sinus Infection, fluid in the ears, thrush in the mouth and gave me 7 days of steroids' and antibiotics.
With the steroid PUSH I felt better for 2 days then the relapse. I called the doc and talked on phone and said I have the same thing I had a week ago, the meds are not helping.
You have been guessing as you read that we have COVID!
Not now. it seems sometime in those weeks that I stopped posting, from Aug 16 surgery date for the new knee, and the follow 2 hell weeks that I did not post except for updates on bob's knee, we got the
Delta Variant . Don't Fret! It's gone now.
Just the left overs.
Those 3 weeks of Stress where my head pounded and bob had cold sweats and I cried and joints hurt, and we could not sleep, we were in the midst of the
Stress and Pain from his surgery and had no idea at all we were sick.
We were in 15 Doc office visits and 10 therapy visits during the 8 weeks of pre visits and after visits.
Doc said Vaccinated People have it and don't know they do because they don't feel sick.
Well we felt sick but since the symptoms are the same as stress and surgery we had no idea.
We are in what she called the Aftermath of the variant.
It can be a few days, a month or several months.
I am left with Headaches that get worse with exertion and go away if I lay down or sit down.
the dizzy pills don't work, that is why I called her. I wanted to walk my dog.
A friend said she is just guessing, and she is but it is educated guess. I had bloodlabs, ultrasounds, wellness visit 3 days after bob's surgery.
Every thing was perfect. She made her diagnosis because all the meds did nothing.
If steroids, antibiotics, don't work, it is Viral not Bacterial and there is nothing to do but let it run the course.
The Good news is, we feel good, then we feel bad, extremes of fatigue, legs like noodles, like we can't live our feet to walk. then we feel ok and can walk.
We are doing yard work and house work, a little at a time. Work and Rest, Work and Rest.
Laying down I feel fine, so reading a lot
I have been Blogging from Bed, reading and commenting and emailing. between naps.
If you are not vaccinated please go get it now.
If we were this sick with vaccination, I shudder to thing if we were not. We were careful and we got it
We do live In the Hot Spot of USA, Florida
I may or may not post each day, I may post only on this blog or Beaus Blog.
Our Obituary's today had a 25 year old man, who died last week from the Variant with in 9 days of getting it. He was unvaccinated.
|Thankful Prayers Going Up that we got the shot|
