If you happened to have stopped by yesterday, then you know I am battling Covid. I'm not particularly happy about that, but there are some things to be thankful for.
I am thankful...
** I am vaxed and boosted. I was absolutely miserable yesterday...lost in that haze of sickness that leaves you unable to get comfortable (so very little sleep) and unable to concentrate or focus (so no tv or books to pass the time). I ached something awful. Still, from things I have heard about others' experiences, had I been unvaxed it could have been much more miserable.
** My doctor prescribed the antiviral, Paxlovid. It is not FDA approved and has a conditional emergency approval. It was the end of the day before I got it, but I was able to take one dose and I can't believe how much better I feel today. Yes, I am still pretty sick, but the mind fog and overwhelming achiness are greatly reduced. Proof, I'm able to concentrate enough to write this post. Yesterday, it would have been beyond me.
** Daisy and Jasper were so cuddly and loving yesterday. They tried their best to soothe me. It's not their fault nothing worked. And apparently they recognize the change from yesterday to today, because Jasper has been an absolute brat this morning!
** A donor has been secured for our great-nephew! If you remember, he has a rare genetic condition that destroys the white matter of the brain and left untreated it results in death at a young age. The donor is for stem cells. Now that a donor has been found, a check-in date of August 16 has been set. He will undergo two weeks of intensive chemo to destroy his cells, then get the transplant.
** His brother tested negative for the condition.
** For all of my friends and family who are true prayer warriors. It means so much to know that when there is need, so many of you go to battle.
Sorry, but that's all I have the energy for today. I'm going to go try and sleep for a little bit. Have a blessed and thankful Thursday!
