How is everyone doing with the dreaded curse that's taking over our lands?
You know, the one they call Covid-19?
My family has, so far, been well, but my brother and his family caught it.
It wasn't good.
Like, you hear about it, you read about it, and then you see the graph on that one website, and you think... Dang, this is crazy. What you don't think about is how REAL it is until someone you know gets it.
I didn't. Then someone I knew died. Then my brother and his family got sick.
My brother, with a fever, barely breathing and throwing up, thought that he was dying. He's in his 40's and his job is labor intensive, so he's a pretty tone and a healthy. So for Covid-19 to take him down like it did, was mind-boggling.
His wife, who wasn't experiencing symptoms like him, only fever, chills, and lost of taste, fared better than him. Their teenage daughter thought she only had a cold. The youngest didn't have any symptoms at all. Ever. All of them tested positive.
The reason I'm writing this is to bring awareness.
While all of them tested positive, they all had very different symptoms.
The real danger of this virus, to me at least, was the little one.
He felt fine, looked fine, but he HAD Covid-19.
Unknowingly, he could have passed it on to someone else, someone who might not be lucky enough to react to the virus in the same way he had, but might end up gasping for breath in a coughing fit for days, like my brother.
My brother didn't go to the hospital, even though at times he wanted to, but he read online about how RSVN machines (Like they use with those who have asthma) pared with a certain type of saline can help.
So, lucky enough, my sister had an RSVN machine and some saline drops that she let him use.
Peeps, it took him 7 breathing treatments A DAY for 4 days to finally feel better.
The point in all of this is, sometimes you don't realize the true crippling impact this virus has until it reaches someone you love.
That it. That's all I have. I hope this story help someone in someway and thank you for reading.
Be safe and healthy out there and I'll check in later.
Welcome to my nonsense!
