Emergency room doctor to me about 10 am this morning. Got there about 2am after about a eight hour wait sitting in the most uncomfortable chairs known to man.

Nothing is working right and this stuff is no fun, sickest I have ever been. I might be taking awhile off. My son is nursing and no one could do it better.

Sending prayers Bob. It sounds like you're in good company there.

You are very active, tough, and sharp for your age. I know you won't go down without a fight.

Get your rest. Praying you recover soon. Pray

No, the most uncomfortable seats known to man are the slatted orthopedic special chairs/bench seats in the doctorssurgery where I used to live.

Get well soon.....from the UK.

I don’t know if it’s the chairs or the fact that most people in the ER waiting lobby are already uncomfortable, but yeah, not the nicest place to spend hours.

+1 to what the guys already said. Take a rest, let the son take care of you, eat your soup and meds, you’ll be back in no time.

Bob, We're all praying for a fast recovery for you. I agree with Charles; in that "sitting-up" as much as possible will help to keep your lungs clear. If you have a reclining-lounger.. you can sleep sitting-up in it. If I know you; you'll kick Covid's butt and be back to yourself in no time flat!!!

All the best.. from all of us.

Hang in there Bob. All common colds, influenzas, etc. are Corona viruses. Get the rest you need, stuff in the yard can wait, IMO. You're no Spring chicken, but even at your age you are doing amazingly well, we all admire you for how you remain active, never a dull moment, both in your yard activities, bear/bird watches, and aircraft/engine restorations. Cool

James 5:16 (NASB) - Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
Santiago 5:16 (NBLA) - Por tanto, confiésense sus pecados unos a otros, y oren unos por otros para que sean sanados. La oración eficaz del justo puede lograr mucho. (para nuestros amigos en la América del Sur) Smile (for our friends in South America)

Thanks all for your support, it is well appreciated.  

Day four of this, day one since I actually knew what it was - advanced into the "Lose the lunch" stage this afternoon.  I just can't handle anymore Chicken Noodle soup, but cold cuts are fine.

and....Charles and roddie, my son who is looking after me won't let me lay down, and for the reasons you cited.  He's a hard taskmaster and at times a major PITA but I could not do without him.  

When the doctor told me I have covid, I told him...impossible, I'm double shot and boosted.  Madurna.  Which he dismissed with contempt and a wave of an arm which my son quickly agreed with.  

I had called the ambulance at about 1 am and they were here about 20 minutes later.  Two little ladies about 5' 2" each.  One, the driver dressed for war.  Both were well tatooed with metal stuck everywhere but the driver had a headband right out of a banzi movie.  Both were upbeat and courtious.  40 minute drive to the ER.  Lot's of deer strikes they mentioned.  

On appearances.  I watched the day shift arrive about 7 am and the night shift depart.  Almost all were dressed rather scruffy, doctors included but my ER Doc was presentible.  Dosen't matter, they got the job done.  The only clean shaven short haired men were medical services salesmen in the waiting room with their lap-tops open writing orders.  

Money rules.

If I had only thought.

Remove a bit of Janis's hair, the glasses, add a headband and you have her.
