See my sig line.  It's what I have been doing to keep myself healthy.

Also don't eat sh*t for food.  Deep fried foods or fast foods or processed foods are no-nos.

Good luck.

Protus- welcome back from the brink. Hope you and your family have a speedy recovery.  

We have very been lucky over the past year.  

I thought we as a collective were goners last year. Glad China viruses are like their tools.

Sad part is we all know it ain't fat your body eats up 1st. Lol.
It'll help jump start some healthier plans I have with my Dr.
Right now is to get my ass off this insulin.
Guess the kind of steroids and covid drugs cause yourcsugsrs to go ape shit.
I'm hoping in a few weeks to be off. Already dropped one kind they had me on and my numbers are all good.
Just can't cold turkey that shit.


That and i Afibd  my last week in for no reason. All echo and test came back ok.but just meant more meds tossed at me.

It's been a crazy 1st few days home...between meds. Setting up follow ups and in home pt/care its a whirl wind.

Sooner I getc100% off this o2 and crsp sooner my life will be normal.
Only atcql use with activity...but recover time is fast with out and my breathing is getting deeper and easier every few days.

It's not an over night fix....inwish it was

Lol.
Yes. For now.
Though I've debated giving away or selling all the surplus and tact gear that doesn't fit my needs.

I'm doing well. Pulmonary Dr...said im.looking good, just walk...walk..walk..with and with out O2.
Home therapy..has tried to kill me..luckily fir me...I'm thier youngest patient...told the girl to try harder. She liked my squat form...and my daughter said she was looking at my ass and told the wife. Lol.

Over all....
The biggest hurdle has been mental.
3+ weeks of isolation outside of getting stabbed by needles, having vitals etc and a few bumps in the road has took more of a toll than I would have thought.
Ot s worse cause I have the wife and kid...aka my life.

And now I just suck down shit loads of vitamins...and meds...
And swish this nasty shit to cure my thrush that the antibiotics caused.


Oh.
Pulmonary..let slip....that I scared them all a few times....lol.
My discard papers showed I had a sepsis which was news to me lol.
Guess I really was kinda fucked up lol.
