My last photo is a selfie, and I just found out that I tested positive for Covid.
Despite the disposition in the photo, I’ve been struggling with a lot of symptoms: intense coughing, runny nose, body aches, throat constriction, hand cramps, fatigue, fever. My friend calls and apologizes profusely.
One day after my Brick Rodeo trip, I decided to have a low key dinner date with her and help her with technical issues. When I arrived, there was an unexpected guest. He was there to help her when she fell on the ground and hit her head.
The next day she calls to let me know that that same friend fainted and hit his head. He’s a landscape architect, and spent so much time in the sumer heat. When he went to the emergency room, he tested positive for Covid and unknowingly passed it onto us that day.
When I had trouble breathing, I called a doctor for a virtual visit. He prescribed a stronger cough medicine and an inhaler.
It helps. I can sleep better. I feel confident I will recover. I believe the vaccine in me is speeding up the recovery time.
