Barbara Ellen logged off from work early today, struggling with an elephant sitting on her chest, making it hard to breathe, and a splitting headache. No fever, however, all day. Then, of course, there is the recent news of possibly no fever for three or four days in some Covid cases. Which she fears she has because of the aforementioned elephant. Time will tell.
At least she has no more back nor hip pain, thanks to Shawna, for a month now. But S. was not able to help improve BE’s breathing much even before the elephant arrived. Which limits the amount of oxygen in her blood. So we’ll wait and watch. She’s only in her mid-fifties, so she should otherwise be able to get through it. Fast as we can dose her with Resmedivir if needed.
UPDATE: BE tested negative for Covid, a few hours ago, at the minor emergency center on Far West Boulevard. They said her symptoms seemed fluish, which is likely since she failed to get a flu shot.
Made our hotel reservations the other day for our Amtrak trip to Oklahoma City on the 25th. From there we’ll drive a rental to Higgins, in the Texas Panhandle, to see and photograph Russ Wheat’s tombstone. Which we had planned to do back in March, until the Chinese Communist Party’s virus intervened.
Takes about three hours to drive it, but Bar and I will enliven the trip with talk. With her seven to five work schedule five days a week, we don’t get much chance of that.
UPDATE: Now it seems we have another couple that wants to go. My OCS classmate Charlie Button and his wife. We’re coordinating it.
Sad to say he and the Mrs. have tested positive for the Wuhan plague and have gone into immediate quarantine. She’s young and will likely get over it. He’s in his mid-70s and may not. And of course the usual scum are already wishing him dead.
UPDATE: And four days later, after several $3,000 doses of Remdesivir, he’s back in the White House. No word on her yet.
Or about 10,000. That’s how many of the 150+ thousand deaths recorded have died from Covid alone, according to the CDC. The rest had multiple health problems and/or old age.
Or as Instapundit puts it: “COVID-19 kills the walking dead and almost nobody else”
Via too many sources to count
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and others are asking the FDA to clarify its opposition to HCQ as a Covid treatment for high-risk outpatients, and President Trump is joining in. Its widespread use in the non-Anglo world and the fact it’s cheap are arguments in its favor.
“Clearly, President Trump has not given up on the potential this drug combination may hold. Dr. Risch’s assessment is clear. For high-risk patients over 65 or with pre-existing conditions, the outpatient use of the hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin combination has shown a significant reduction in hospitalizations and death rates.
“He asserts that we have let politics overrule science, and it is costing thousands of lives. Hopefully, senators pressuring the FDA will cause significant movement and clarity. The FDA owes its response by the end of business tomorrow. If the misinformation can be effectively cleared up, it will be a game-changer. The senators must continue to press the FDA and restore the doctor-patient relationship.”
“COVID-19 is not America’s plague. There was never the slightest evidence that the virus could produce mass casualties; all evidence pointed in the opposite direction. Instead, the ruling class took this opportunity to extort the general public’s compliance with its agendas. Their claim to speak on behalf of ‘science’ is an attempt to avoid being held accountable for the enormous harm that they are doing. They continue doing it because they want to hold on to the power the panic has brought them.
“In sum, the lockdowns have been inflicted and perpetuated by people who care more about your subjugation than your health. They want to wreck the U.S. economy and increase the Democratic Party’s chances in the 2020 election. And they might succeed.”
Looking at you, Dr. Fauci.
