    In Hospital With Covid19.

    This is my 6th day in isolation. Iím on my 3rd dose of remdesivir treatment. 2 more treatments to go and Iím scheduled to be released Tue orWed. So far, so good. Not feeling bad, just a cough, minor breathing issues (COPD) , minor diarrhea. Dr. admitted me last Tue.

    Just going a little stir crazy about now.

    Will fill everyone in when I get out of here. Itís a PIA typing on an iPad.

    Hang tough buddy. Keep taking that remdesivir, I have options in Gilead Don't go croaking on us. Personally I think the Hydroxychloroquine regimen with z pack and zinc is better and cheaper. But what do i know. Get well soon.

    If you don't mind me asking what led to your hospitalization? Just abundance of caution because of copd?

    How would you rank it compared to the flu?

    Hate to hear this, but remember, the news media doesn't like reporting on people who recover. Make them hate you!

    I agree with the hydroxychloriquine, but the doc wants this treatment. If this doesnít work, then Iíll override his decision.

    Had a video conference with him and he didn’t like the way I was breathing, so he sent me over here for treatment.

    The regular flu is much more intense a d debilitating. I’ve got very minor symptoms, at best. Doing very well, actually.

    Well, another way to look at it is they want this treatment to be their go-to treatment and they need a lot of successes with it.... maybe that makes me a little golden in their eyes.

    No fun at all! Hopefully at least some of the nurses were cute.

    Good to hear. I hope you have a speedy recovery.
    When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?"

    Released today, a day early.....Yay!

    Everything okay so far. Lost a lot of stamina in isolation for a week. Working on building that back up to pre-hospital levels. Iíll get there, slowly but surely. The staff was super nice and helpful and very knowledgeable. Itís just good to be home. Gotta take regular computer to repair shop tomorrow. Hurricane did a number on it last Tue.

    Glad everyone here is doing well, too.

    I heard on the radio today that out of 800 test kits, 400 were actually used and 400 were unused (as a test). All 800 tests came back positive! A mighty big scam is being perpetrated on us.

    As of today, Aug. 13, I'm still working on rebuilding my stamina. It's slow going, but I can feel I'm starting to get stronger as I exert myself a little more each day.

    They've called me back to part time work this coming Tuesday, and I have a lot more stamina to get back before I go in.

    I'll get there, but damn, it seems a little hard to do right now..... Gotta keep pushing.

    I guess I'm now a Remdesivir success story that the Commucrats can proudly use to promote their own medical agenda...

    Glad I was able to help.....
