Thankful Thursday

I don't know if Rebecca Jo or Jen are hosting Thankful Thursday today, but here I am linking up to both. Just in case. 

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!


  1. Hi Stacy. So glad you were able to get the anti-viral and that it is helping. You remain in my prayers. Covid is still something that must be reckoned with. Hope you have a good weekend. I will be joining in on Thankful Thursday later today. :-)

  2. I hope and pray you will be feeling all the way better soon.

  3. Hi Stacy, I am glad you got the anti-viral and you are feeling better. I did not have the body achiness. I did not get the anti-viral. I feel back to normal today. I pray you will feel better soon. This new variant affects everyone differently. Rest and fluids is key. I am off to do my Thankful Thursday.

  4. I am happy to learn you are feeling better, Stacy. I'm making note of that med just in case. Knock wood, so far I have been okay with my vaccinations and two boosters. I know that isn't 100% though. Praise God for the stem cell donor for your gr-nephew. Prayers lifted and please keep us posted. Rest!! xo

  5. So very thankful you are doing okay and that they gave you the meds to help you so much. You know, you and Pres. Biden now have something in common. He was also tested positive today and they gave him the same medicine. So thankful for the stem cell donor for your grand nephew. I must have missed that post and didn't know about it, but I will be praying as he receives this on our anniversary. Now you just take it easy and rest and get well soon.


Thankful Thursday

Can you believe we are already at the end of September? Where have the days gone?! It seems like it was just yesterday that we were counting...
