I have dodged getting COVID until this past week. Thank goodness I was vaccinated and boosted. I honestly feel that kept me from having compromised lungs. Don't get me wrong, it sucks. I had a fever for four days, then the congestion hit. But, while I am coughing and sneezing still, everything is productive, and it's not settling into my lungs. I also finally tested negative on Monday. The fatigue hitting hard is real!
Last night, I had to call rescue for Jerry. Because we have been feeling cruddy, we weren't eating right or taking our medicines. I should say that some of us weren't....not naming names, but it was Jerry. His body went into diabetic ketoacidosis, and he is on a ventilator in the hospital's ICU. Scary shit!! I stayed away from the hospital so I could continue to rest up and get better. He is sedated and wouldn't know I was there, but that doesn't mean I don't feel incredibly guilty. I contacted the nurses, and he is improving, although it will be a slow process. I'm hoping to go up there tomorrow. We'll see how I feel in the morning. I will say that the shower today revived me, but I was tired afterward.
I'm hoping he comes home soon. I hate him not being here with me. He is my everything!!!
