Last night I decided not to take Paxlovid. This morning Covid symptoms were worse, so I reversed that decision. It was the pain in the area of the diaphragm when I cough that got worse, but actually tonight it feels just a bit better. I am keeping a check on my oxygen level, pulse rate, and blood pressure. Right now, everything is in the normal range. I’ll just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings.
I had a nice long conversation with Justin about how things are going after the hurricane. They are fine but a bit overwhelmed by the amount of clean-up that needs to be done. There is cell service near the plaza in town, so that is where he was when he called. There is information being circulated that if the power grid is not back up and running in two or three days, there will be no cell service as there might not be enough fuel to run the generators that are keeping the cell towers going. Did I get that right, Justin? He has also heard that a few people have gotten back water, giving them hope that they might have water soon. The school the kids attend went with totally computer-based classes this year. Bad choice since there is no internet unless you have a satellite system. Which they don’t. The kids might go back to school on Monday, but it will be mostly for socialization until they figure things out.
Heather got home from Climate Week in New York City this afternoon just in time to take Sam to Camp Greenough in Yarmouth for a weekend of endurance camping. Jonah is fine but still testing positive for Covid. And so far, Sam and Ollie are escaping it. Sam had the booster two weeks ago, but Ollie is too young to get the booster at this time. Sure wish I had gotten it as soon as it came out. If you haven’t gotten it, please make an appointment tomorrow. You don’t want this.
