My wife woke me this morning telling me that I’m getting worse and so is she. So off we went to urgentcare, which is still better than the ER or trying to get into our regular doctor on short notice. All the same, uncomfortable chairs, florescent lights and trying to remember every medical detail of my life. The doctor was by telemed, but they did everything else in the clinic.
So bad news part 1; I weigh 250 pounds which is almost the heaviest I’ve ever been. I thought I was at 215, which wasn’t great, but I didn’t feel bad about it like I do 250
blood pressure good, pulse normal, no extreme temperature
My wife was right by me getting all the same checks done on her, but it doesn’t feel right sharing her details, nothing particularly worrying came out of her exam either, in relation to being sick.
Then they gave us each three tests: Covid, Strep and Flu. That’s two swabs up the nose which I didn’t mind but she hated, and a throat swab, which I had difficulty stopping coughing long enough to do
We both came back positive for flu. Today is our grocery day, so I thought just send it over to our grocery store, we’ll pick it up there……… and that didn’t work out. So I spent a fairly large portion of my awake time today getting scripts I can’t use.
Which isn’t that what I said? I’d spend a lot of time and energy being examined, and I would have far better stayed home and taken a nap.
