About two weeks ago I woke up one morning experiencing difficulty breathing. While Hubby called a walk-in clinic to be sure they could see me quickly, I changed into more appropriate attire.  

They hustled me in where a young nurse practitioner saw me. My difficulty breathing had eased some and she sent us away with a couple prescriptions.

Less than a week later breathing difficulties struck again. Hubby hustled me into our van, bed head, scruffy PJs and all and headed to our local hospital's emergency room. About four minutes into our drive, I was breathing okay and just wanted to go home.

Hubby said to consider our drive a trial run to see how long it would take to get to the hospital. It took us five minutes.

"If it happens again, we are not stopping. We're going into the emergency room." 

Less than a week later that's what we did. The techs and nurses were wonderful and very helpful and willing to listen to Hubby's explanations of my disabilities from my 2011 hemorrhagic stroke. 

At the end of an almost three-hour visit, the physician's diagnosis: COVID. 

I left with a tickled funny bone, recalling that all those wonderful helpful folks, from clerical staff, to techs, RNs and the physician all looked like teenagers.

Four days later Hubby and I went through the drive-through of a local pharmacy that offered drive-through COVID testing. No surprise that he tested positive since he is careful never to leave me by myself since my breathing difficulties.

We are also missing church. I'm thankful we could watch on Hubby's computer on-line, complete with the choir special. And I got to croak along with the hymns with all the words for each verse appearing below the visual of the sanctuary.

It wasn't the first time I've experienced a church service wearing my pajamas, but this Sunday was a special blessing with liberal doses of humor and cautions about choosing to follow the written Word, the Bible's directions for Godly living, and to believe in and worship the living Word, Jesus Christ.

May joy in Him fill your week!




  1. Did they give you the new Covid drug? How are you now? How is your husband now, does he have symptoms? I have said before that I can tell how old Phil & I are because all our doctors are so much younger than us! It is strange taking orders from them!

  2. So sorry you are sick and hope you only have mild symptoms. I know two persons here who have recently come down with it. We are not done with this yet. Do take care and be well soon.

  3. Covid is still rampant here, maybe due to all the tourist and visitors from all over the world. I am so glad you are doing well, and this seems to have laste 4 or 5 weeks for you, it was hard to tell how long you have been having the breathing issues. we have 4 free tests here that I ordered from the govt site. did you take a test? of any kind? hope all is well soon with both of you.

  4. Sorry to hear that Covid has hit at your place. DH had it in January... but only mild symptoms. I didn't get it or was asymptomatic. But yes, it's still around. We still wear our masks when out and about... and may for awhile. Having both had Cancer, we don't need any other complications - if we can help it.

  5. I don't think there is going to be anyone left who has NOT had covid. Both of us had it last month but nothing serious. Mostly very tired.
    Hope you're back to health soon.

  6. Hope you and your hubby are both recovered by now.

  7. God bless your sweet heart! I'm happy to have read more recent posts and know you are okay!
