I slept sitting up and walking to the bathroom brought on weakness and a lot of pain in my back, my right lung more than my left. I sweat through the night, but have no temperature now. Not feeling too terrible if I do not move. I’ve been doing the Nebulizer ever 2 hours and that seems to help, too. That cinched feeling has abated some, but I do still feel it.
Wouldn’t it be the bomb if I survived this?!?! I am on Day 4 of symptoms. The timeline says short of breath on the 13th should begin and severe breathing issues the 16th. I have a morbid note in my phone for the 22nd: Dead yet? I do amuse myself if no one else. HA!
“By day five, patients with preexisting conditions might find that they have trouble breathing, and it usually takes about seven days for a person to go to a hospital.”
“Early studies found that most people who die of the disease will do so within 14 to 19 days. “
So I have a few days to write still? Sheesh. I feel like I’m walking towards the edge of a cliff knowing I am going to be walking off.
I just found this… also not very encouraging:
“They say, ‘Hey, you know, I think I’m getting over this,’ and then within 20 to 24 hours, they’ve got fevers, severe fatigue, worsening cough and shortness of breath,” said Ohl, an infectious disease expert and professor of medicine at the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. “Then they get hospitalized.”
I won’t do it, but I honestly wonder if taking a slew of pills and some amaretto might night be the best option. I never think about things like that, either. But this? A different time.
