The Lord sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness. ~Psalm 41:3
It seems like forever since I've posted a blog, but I do have, what I would deem, valid excuses. Not wanting to advertise that Danny and I are going out of town to St. Simon's Island to visit with my brother and his family for his birthday, my plan is to post all about it when we return home last Monday. But as we know, the best laid plans of man don't always align with God's.
I wake up Tuesday morning with a persistent, dry cough. This definitely doesn't seem normal to me. And remembering my bout with pneumonia last year when I failed to seek timely treatment, I decide to make an appointment with our local Urgent Care. I'm anxious to find out, especially after our days of traveling, if I could have somehow contracted Covid while on the journey. Just so you are aware, I've had two shots and two booster since the "vaccine" was available. I know that doesn't make anyone immune to the virus, although it can certainly reduce the bad effects of the virus should one get it.
I take both a rapid Covid test along with one for the flu. My initial suspicions, unfortunately, come to fruition. I do have Covid, and I'm sent home with a prescription for Paxlovid. But, oh, I'm so worried about Danny catching the virus from me! With his heart issues, I'm praying the vaccines he's taken will provide a shield of immunity for him.
Of course, the inevitable - Danny gets tested, and the results are positive. The good news is, his symptoms, like mine, are mild, and he's only beginning to experience the overwhelming fatigue that has plagued me from the onset of the virus. The only drawback is he has to go off his Staten drug, which he has done, in order to safely take Paxlovid. He finally was able to start that regimen today.
We are so grateful that neither of us is seriously ill. And, in a way, it is a relief to have finally contracted Covid so our bodies will develop natural immunities, which we all know are much more effective than any vaccine could be. Sure, there are some folks who've contracted the virus more than once, but in our cases, that's a possibility we won't worry about in advance.
Instead, we will praise the Lord and give thanks to Him in all circumstances, trusting that He will restore us to full health in His time.
(Posting in the near future will all depend upon how I'm feeling. Thanks for your patience and understanding, my friends!)
