AM- woke up at 4:30am, cuz I had turned my light out at 9pm last night, so was pretty much done sleeping. I stayed in bed and dozed some more until finally getting up just before 6am (PST). Outside are high clouds, 25 (F)degrees feels like 18❄️

Husb says he feels crummy and his sleep is interrupted by coughing fits, but, he’s alive. Lots of body aches😖
I seem okay so far. He has taken up residence in the mother in law apartment, so that I can sleep, and not be AS exposed….

AM- woke up sick after not really sleeping due to having to turn over/change positions about every 15-20 mins all night. The achiness of this shit is dreadful. And, cough plus chilling/sweats. And, face, head and neck swelling….
Outside is 25 (F)degrees and partly cloudy.
Gotta put off my March plan until I get better….🥴
After bkfst, I did a Covid test. Of course it was positive, ugh…🙄
Then I went back to bed for a 3 hour nap!😵‍💫

Noonish- did some laundry, threw the ball a little for Canoe.

PM- ball throwing was not enough; clearly, there would be no peace until he got walked. So, out to the field we went for our 1+ mile doggo walk✅ After LOTS of running, I asked him if he was done, and he headed for home😅

AM- slept better with tons of drugs on board for symptom control. Had gone to bed at 9ish last night. Was up at 5ish this morning. I expect to be back in bed around 8am, again🥴The drugs aren’t helping as much during the day as they did in the night😩
Outside is cloudy, 35 (F)degrees feels like 27.

Noonish- back to bed from 8am to noon.

PM- Up from noon to 1pm, then back from 1pm until 5pm. Then off to bed at 9pm for the night🥴😷😴

AM- slept all night with minimal coughing until just before 5am. Then realized my head had drained, so my throat was now swollen and clogged up. Got up before 6am. It’s still quite windy outside, 35 (F)degrees feels like 28.

Back to bed from 9am to noon.

Noonish- up until 1:30pm

PM- back to bed from 1:30pm to 3pm

In bed for the night by 9:45pm with lights out at 10pm. This is my typical time, so I am definitely improving. All your healing vibes are helping!🥰🥳Watched the first 2 episodes of Star Trek Picard, Season 3😎

AM- woke up before 6am (PST) to a little wind, clear sky, 30 (F)degrees feels like 23. My head is more clear and I can breathe thru my nose. But, from my nose down, feels swollen, with my throat particularly tight and sore when I swallow. Gonna take about half of the drugs today and see what happens and how I feel. On the bright side, I am making progress on reading my Hitler biography🥴🤭

AM- awakened from whatever lousy kind of sleep I was in at 5:30am by Canoodle oozing up onto the bed🥰

The other thing that kept me awake was contemplating a move by my daughter and granddaughter from Portland into our house with us. We had a brief chat last night between episodes about how she wants to get her masters in psychology online in WA state and how we can help make that happen.
Meanwhile, this morning, I feel pretty good wrt Covid. Just a tad bit of congestion left.
Outside, it’s snowing again, and 31 (F)degrees.😵‍💫❄️
