I’ve had an interesting, eventful December. The evening of Dec. 13, I started getting sick with a bad headache, sore throat, and a slight fever. When I woke up the next morning in no better shape, I called the walk-in clinic and made an early appointment thinking if I go early I would avoid getting exposed to others with Covid. After being checked and my throat swabbed, I was asked if I could be tested for Covid. Gratefully the Q-tip barely went into my nose. A few minutes later, the results were given to me, and we found out I was negative for strep throat but positive for Covid. I thought now what happens. I was asked if I would be interested in receiving an infusion that helps with the Covid symptoms. I agreed to that and was given some papers to read about it. Since I always thought infusions were given in IV form, I was very surprised that this infusion was given in four different injections; one in each arm, one in my stomach, and one in one leg. One way a person is offered the infusion is if they have come into a medical facility within a certain period of time of getting the virus. Otherwise, it will not work and there will not be any infusion offered. I drove myself home and did not feel any different than when I came in, and I felt pretty rough. But after sleeping that night and getting up the next day, I felt like a whole new person. I felt like I had a small head cold with a cough, and that was all. I got a call from the doctor’s office that the strep throat culture had had time to grow, and grow it did so I did have strep throat after all as well, and was started on an antibiotic. I was under quarantine for ten days and could not go anywhere or have anyone in my house. I lived my normal day to day routine, and I did notice with exertion I would break out into a sweat so I assumed that was from weakness, but just kept moving anyway. I was told it was unusual to have strep with Covid, but oh well…what can I say?! I know I was very blessed to have the guidance to go to the doctor’s office in the first place and get professional treatment.
