Hello from the quarantine. Here’s the latest status report on the Dianny Virus.
You’re free to call it the Dianny Virus. It isn’t sexist or racist, honest.
Any old how.
It’s Day 26 of the Dianny Virus and there is some good news to report.
I mentioned the other day that I stupidly continued taking my immunosuppressant while battling the Dianny Virus. And finally this week the stupid stopped.
The good news is halting my immunosuppressant appears to be having the desired effect – namely, my whacked out immune system seems to be doing a better job at fighting this thing.
While I am still very weak and suffering from bone-crushing fatigue, my temperature is almost back to normal which is a huge improvement.
I remain only cautiously optimistic since last week I had a similar upturn that quickly became a downturn. So I’m not prepared to say the Dianny Virus is on its way out. If I see continued improvement that lasts more than a day, my cautious optimism will change to plain old optimism.
There is a downside, however. Without the benefit of the immunosuppressant working in conjunction with the anti-malarial drug I’m on, my Lupus symptoms are kicking into high gear.
I really didn’t need a Lupus flare joining up with the Dianny Virus. It’s kind of a buzz kill if you want to know the truth.
In the meantime, I continue to rest as much as possible. I have two loads of laundry to do, but I’m splitting up the task to allow maximum rest time. Today I brought the laundry baskets down from upstairs. Tomorrow I’ll take them down to the basement. Hopefully at this rate, by Sunday I can actually get the laundry in the washing machine.
We do what we can.
Despite my best efforts to explain the importance of social distancing in light of the Dianny Virus, my dog Mary just doesn’t get it.
Hey, at least I was able to get her off my stomach. So that’s something I guess.
Before I go lie down and rest, I wanted to share this great story about a local CNY couple that is using 3D printers to make face shields in their basement so the county has them at the Wuhan virus testing clinic.
This is what Americans do. We don’t just sit and wait for Government to save us. Instead, we step up and take initiative.
So while this pandemic might be bringing out the worst in some of our politicians and pundits, it is most definitely bringing out the very best in regular, every day Americans like Isaac Budmen and Stephanie Keefe.
