They Didn't Ask Me

House Arrest

Well, we're in lockdown mode here at Fuller due to the flu. They did nasal swabs and the first results were negative save for one. But it sounds like the repeat, longer test showed widespread flu.

Meals and therapy in rooms. I could sit in the dining room, but I'd have to wear a mask. But that's too hot. I've never been able to wear a mask for more than a few minutes. Hell, I don't even wear a scarf in the winter.

Not surprisingly, my pulseox has dropped due to congestion. 88, 89, 90. So I had the nurse get me a nasal canula for lying down and running it at 1 L.

Sitting up in wheelchair for a couple of hours. Did 40 minutes of PT exercises. Will get up again in the evening, as usual. Have zero interest in lying in bed and getting fluid in my lungs again like 2013.

If I was at home, I'd be sleeping in Debbie's chair. But with one leg, I don't know if I can get out of it right now. So best to be here.

Local news had a flu story -- a strain of H1N1 swine flu not covered in the last flu shot is racing through West Michigan. Wonderful.

And it's snowing steadily outside right now.
