Ph and Covid
Let me put it this way. I have a-fib, pat,psvt, pulmonary htn., cope, interstitial lung disease with honeycombing, pulmonary fibrosis and then got Covid. My Dr said it was a mild case but I felt bad and my Dr called me everyday to see my vitals, temp 02 sats, bp. Felt bad for a few weeks and then everything tapered down pretty quickly. The Dr kept in touch but I told my husband to tell him I was sleeping. An d I was!!!!! Couple of days my hubby woke me up for ice cold water and a trip to bathroom. Lol. Came and went fast but please do not play around with it. Can be dangerous

Psmith, you have the kind of diagnoses that just keep on giving. Thank goodness you are okay. Ive been trying like mad to avoid Covid, I just have this awful feeling that it would be the end of me. I'm so happy you came out of it okay and I hope it stays away from you for good. One thing I know from my family is that you can have it more than once. Isn't that special? Be careful out there.

Psmith, we are that way too. We are a very tiny community and we avoided having any Covid until this last month. Now, it's only 3 houses down from us and it seems to be spreading family by family. I don't think there is going to be a way to avoid the germs in my own neighborhood. You know how it is, the hairdresser caught it from her mother-in-law and then her customers began showing symptoms and it gets started all over a small town. That's kind of the situation we have here. It's a miracle that no one over 65 has had it yet, we older ones are staying at home. We have had a very abreviated Thanksgiving. We have 7 of us that have been around each other a lot. It's a far cry from our usual holiday, but I"m so grateful for the 7 that could come and I'm grateful that the 27 others who didn't come decided to stay home for one reason or another. I am bushed, but so thankful for all my family and friends that being bushed is nothing. Good luck and I hope your holiday is wonderful.

Don't know where I got it, cuz except for Dr's, I have not been in public since Feb , 2020. But my husband goes everywhere.
Now I won't go around him at all. Pitiful, but we are so full of Covid down here, it's not funny0

Psmith, thank you for sharing your experience. I have Severe PH, CHF, DVT, Diabetes type2, Sleep Apnea. I am absolutely terrified of getting Covid. Hearing your story has helped ease my worries. Glad you were ok!
