My Neighbor (Probably) Has Corona Virus

March 22nd, 2020 at 10:44 pm

My neighbor who lives behind me thinks he has corona virus. He's been really sick for the past week (sicker than when he had pneumonia 4 years ago, he said) and got tested this morning. He had to make a 40-minute drive to a special test center by himself to do that. He won't have results for a couple of days. He said he's had all the symptoms, most especially trouble breathing. He couldn't put his arm on his chest because of the pressure. they gave him Tamiflu.

I am very relieved that through uber caution, I turned down his suggestion that he come by for a cup of tea and a visit the week before last. By then I was already feeling uneasy about seeing anyone. Perhaps he wasn't contagious or even sick then, but I don't really know.

He said you cannot take care of yourself if you get sick. Because it was all he could do to walk to the bathroom. His wife is caring for him now and so far feels fine.

    Praying for his recovery! I hope you also stay in the clear. Tamiflu has some serious side effects, he should watch out for anything that may seem worse after taking it and stop immediately if necessary.

    I hate to think of someone so sick driving forty minutes away and forty minutes back!

    Hope your neighbor truly doesn't have it, but you are smart to keep your distance.
