Not having a cure is the most scary thing about it all!

by Mr. ENGlishJELLo 1 month ago

It can be overwhelming, I tell you. My husband and I are both in healthcare, we work in the hospital.
Roughly 2 weeks ago, he started coughing less than 24 hrs from his shift at the hospital. He did 3 nights in a row. Chills then followed, later on elevated temperatures ranging from 99.8-101.
At the onset of his symptom, he self-quarantined. He is staying in a room by himself. The fever lasted for about 3 days. He also had generalized aches, as if his body had been a punching bag. Round the clock acetaminophen seemed to have helped. Day 2 he had some stomach upset with diarrhea that lasted for a day. Day 4, I was able to get him tested at an urgent care facility. He had to wear a mask upon going out of the house and even when he exits his room. The myalgia was subsiding, the cough persisted. It was dry. By day 6 he started complaining of being congested and that he felt a slight chest pressure. Morning of day 7 he told me after breakfast that he felt short of breath. I assessed him, checked his vital signs and oxygen saturation. Everything appeared normal. I contacted our PCP via videocall so he can be virtually assessed. We have been in contact with our PCP since day 1. A little after midnight (day 8) he asked to be taken to ED as he couldnโ€™t sleep and despite his efforts at pursed lip breathing, he still felt short of breath as if the air doesnโ€™t fully enter his lungs. I wrote down whatever transpired since Day 1, his medical/ surgical history as well as the medications heโ€™s on.
In the ED, they took an Xray. He was sent home a few hours later. They didnโ€™t check his blood work only advised to await for his swab result. He was given a decongestant. Day 9: he received a call from the the center, his test came back positive. He was advised to continue with quarantine. We informed our PCP with the advise to keep an eye on his symptoms even though he has not been febrile for a few days doesnโ€™t mean that heโ€™s infection free. Day 10 he started expectorating mucus, in small amounts. The once dry cough now productive. Today is day 12. He reported feeling better, his body aches is very mild, the cough is clearing.
His daily regimen includes 2 g of Vit C, warm fluids (a concoction of ginger/lemon/honey), plenty of water, soups when I can manage to make, adequate nutrition, fruits and vegetables. Every other day since his fever broke, I had him take a warm shower. Iโ€™ve prepared steam inhalation for him as well.
As much as I donโ€™t want to worry, it canโ€™t be helped. The anxiety can impede your good sense so it would help to approach the situation in a pragmatic way. If you focus on the worst, youโ€™ll only feel hopeless. It is totally understandable to be worried though, I was cause he has other co-morbidities. But you have to be proactive and be emotionally strong.
As for me, Iโ€™ve done my best to disinfect surfaces, door knobs, the bathroom and things. He has designated utensils to use and is kept in the room. The kids has been mostly cooperative especially with handwashing and keeping themselves healthy. although they have missed their Dadโ€™s cuddles and hugs, they were understanding of our situation.
Trying and difficult times we are in. May God have mercy and bless us all.

Remember, the "breathing difficulties" can be exasperated by anxiety. I am not down playing the breathing difficulties, but I feel that it is important to elucidate the anxiety that can manifest itself. Stay safe, cheers!

I removed my lungs so I can't get Coronavirus

by Gold liljay 1 month ago

I had Pneumonia once, it was the most painful thing I've ever experienced, and I think it was in the mild category (I had to be admitted to the hospital and took antibiotics and some oxygen therapy); I can't imagine how painful the severe and critical category is, my wishes go out to everyone.
