January 20, 2021 -  Well now, where to begin. My last entry was on December 5th and the very next day I started feeling a bit odd. My sense of smell and taste vanished in a matter of days and just felt weak. By Dec 10th I had lost 10 pounds of fluids and I felt that I had to go to the ER. Many tests and scans done and YUP, Covid-19. I was put on IV and felt a little better after that but for the next 4 days I was running a fever that would not break. I was having a hard time breathing by this point so off to the ER again. CT scan did not show any lung issues to be worried about but was given another IV, That's now two liters plus a steroid of some sort. Given a script and went home. The fever broke about four days later and I have been making slow progress. Now by Jan 20 I have my energy back in full though still have a bad cough from time to time. This has been a roller coaster ride that I would not wish on anyone. My appetite has also changed as I feel hungry but can only manage about half of what I used to eat. After my fluids were back to normal and my weight briefly returned to 254 pounds. My reduction in eating has me down to 239 as of this morning. I look forward to losing some weight but by way of the CV is not advised.

I will get back to this project as I have sat on my arse for too long :-)

Hey Ken, Thank you. I only have the nagging cough left so other than that I feel at about 98%

This bug I had is nothing like anything I ever had. The first sign that something was amiss was the vanishing of my sense of taste and smell. Yes, I know that many others have had much worse cases of the CV and many have died but what I had was close enough and being 64 y/o I do not want to get any closer to it ;-)
