I should have been in bed two hours ago, but I decided to watch the first of the Lord of the Rings movies. It was long, but I loved it as much as the first time I saw it. I will watch another one tomorrow and another one on Monday, and I am hoping by then to be able to say that I am definitely getting better. I named this log The Two Step because I feel like a take one step forward, then a second step backwards, or maybe sideways. My breathing issues were definitely better this morning, so I think the Paxlovid is helping me fight this Covid. But just as I was getting excited about feeling better, I developed another symptom or maybe a side effect of the Paxlovid. Around noon I got really shaky. Heather came over about that time to deliver groceries, take my dirty laundry to do, and to take Shadow for a nice, long walk. I told her I thought I needed food, but that wasn’t it. I remained that way all afternoon and evening. And my stomach is a little off as well. During the afternoon I also kept breaking out in a cold sweat. It was just weird. So, I am going to head to bed and see if more sleep helps. I did nap today, but that didn’t help. Hopefully there will be two steps forward tomorrow.
