Sorry for dropping off the radar again. We suspected that my wife had Covid, but we were treating at home. She had been checking her vitals often and her blood pressure (never high to begin with) was really low and worried her. We debated the ER, with me as a no and used Teledoc through my insurance.
The doctor said with her blood pressure as low as one reading was, that’s ER time.
By that time my wife was up and around and her blood pressure was better, so she didn’t want to go. We had now flipped sides…
We go to the ER with a Covid floor pretty sure that’s where she would end up no matter what in Friday night.
She does a rapid test, has XRays and the while nine yards. She has Covid and pneumonia. They keep her and treat with oxygen (not a ventilator), antibiotics, steroids, and who knows what else.
We are expecting her to return home tomorrow (now today).
Now switch to me. She has Covid, there’s no way that I can see that I don’t. We’ve been the most worried about Covid for me because of my high blood pressure, being overweight, and other risk factors.
It’s a miracle that either I don’t have it or that I somehow have a very mild case. Each time I think I get a symptom, it lasts about a day and goes away. Shrug.
Switch to the kids. The wife had a Covid test done on the 10th (which was negative) for a procedure done on the 15th. We figured it would be pointless to have a test done and then go anywhere, so we sent the kids away to my parents’ house and except for seeing them briefly on the 15th and 16th, we have not been in contact with them except by phone, text, and zoom.
TLDR: The wife is in the hospital with Covid and pneumonia and is expected to return home tomorrow, the rest of us are fine, and I have been watching a lot of Macgyver on CBS All Access.
@jst1ofknd Glad things are turning out to be fairly mild as covid goes, your kids haven’t been exposed and you, if you have a case, it is so mild you can’t really tell. You think she caught it when she had her procedure done?
