It’s just more and more bad news… I got my car fixed and got the new tires I needed but found put my battery is bad and that I need a new one asap! That has to wait til payday. Hopefully my battery will hold out that long. However…it’s not like I’ll really be going anywhere. I just found out that my mom DOES have Covid. I was just with her this morning. So now I absolutely will be getting tested. My daughter sent me a link with the place I can make an appointment with. Because of this there will be no Thanksgiving meal this year. That saddens me. I look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas every year. I love being around family and eating the super large meal and at Christmas giving presents. At least if I do have Covid it’s well before Christmas.
I talked to a guy at the mechanic shop that had Covid 5wks ago. He said he had breathing problems beforehand and that Covid really hindered ot even more. He said that he wasn’t hospitalized but that he felt like he needed to be. They don’t hospitalize anyone here unless you’re extremely bad. He said his son and daughter in law also had it but his son had no symptoms at all and his daughter just got sick with cold like symptoms. Everyone is different. My mom is having really bad breathing problems on top of her COPD and Emphysema. Her oxygen levels have been lower but not low enough to hospitalize. She’s quarantined at home now and I will not be visiting for a couple weeks. I called my pain doctor whom I have an appointment with tomorrow and told them I’ve been exposed so we’re doing a telehealth visit in the morning instead and they’re just going to send my scripts over electronically to the pharmacy. Thank goodness they started doing that last month.
For dinner tonight instead of my Kielbasa I’m ordering my favorite salad from O’Charleys. My tires and alignment cost less than I was expecting so that helps!
