Of course they were wearing masks then.

How else do you make sure people don't identify whose butt was on view at any given time.

Worth keeping this in mind if you should feel like letting your guard down.

https://www.sharecare.com/health/coronavirus/article/long-covid-puzzles-researchers-and-patients?

Before Russell Frisby, a lawyer in the Washington, D.C. area, contracted COVID-19, he was healthy except for mild, well-controlled asthma, with an active lifestyle that included golf. After a five-day hospitalization with the infection in March, he is now marking his sixth month of persistent symptoms.

At its peak, the illness wore away at his spirits.

ďYouíre sick. You donít think youíre making any progress. You donít know when itís going to end or what itís going to mean for your life,Ē Frisby recalls.

Heís not alone.

Researchers are searching for answers
While mild symptomatic cases of coronavirus infection may result in full recovery in about two weeks, some COVID-19 survivors, like Frisby, are ill for months.

I didn't see that coming.

Nor did they  grint. Sad commentary on job loss and hunger, but at least the victim saw the funny side.  :icon_mrgreen:

So glad to hear about Ella. How great that your daughter was there and knew something to do. It's always seemed to me in times like that when there's nothing to lose, there shouldn't be such resistance to trying things. Like in terminal cancer patients - if heroin is the only thing that controls the pain, why not? It's not as if addiction is going to be a future problem. I'm not sure of the details of the new Right to Try here in the U.S., but surely it has to be a step forward.

Ella will live. She took a decided turn for the worse on the 16th, by the next day she was dying slowly but surely. Vet was at his wit's end as was VCO, Ella's heart was failing with all that entails, she couldn't even hold her head up as she lay on her bed. Our oldest daughter is still with us, we pulled levers and had her leave extended at her request, the intended purpose of her leave kind of fell by the wayside with Ella being so ill. She is not a Doktor but she is a trained and resourceful Field Medical Sister and is giant help with Ella and the other dogs and our youngest daughter as VCO and I concentrated on Ella.

So two days ago we five, Doktor, his Medical Sister, VCO, our daughter and me, are sitting on the floor next to Ella and watching her fade away when our daughter looked at the IV running in Ella and looked at the medicine Doktor had just injected in to the bottle. She looked puzzled and asked Vet why he was giving her that medicine. Vet said it was standard protocol for heart problems with dogs.

She thought for a moment, than asked why they are not giving Ella my heart meds (she knows what I take and why), which are totally different and much more strong. Vet says they are not certified for dogs. I've never seen that girl angry like she was at that instant and she gave Doktor Holy What For and told VCO to bring two of my pills. Vet says Ella can't keep them down, she told Vet to STFU and give her the pills, nothing ventured nothing gained and Ella was dying in our arms. It took her three tries in over two hours to get them in Ella but the third try was the charm and Ella managed to keep the pills, which are tiny, down. Our beautiful daughter then gave Doktor a diatribe of what she goes through treating the wounded in the never ending fighting in Novorossiya and what she has to make do with and improvise while treating wounded boys and lacking almost everything. Doktor tried to defend himself and mentioned what he went through in both Chechnya Wars (which I knew, we've had a vodka or three over the years and chatted), our girl told him that was nothing compared to what she does and she has learned the hard way to make due and as needed improvise. Doktor waved the white flag and surrendered.

Within hours Ella improved and now, two days later, Ella is up and active and getting my meds three times a day for the duration. She is still ill but improving by the hour, she is eating and her bodily functions, which had shut down, are working normally. Today she is walking in normal fashion (she looks a little silly in her body suit/bandage with tying bows). As stated, she will live. As an aside, our youngest daughter was with us always during this treatment cycle except when she was in school, she needs to know Life as it really is. She was very afraid that Ella would 'leave us'.

This morning, after Ella's dawn walk, our older daughter stated that she has to go back to service. I made mention that she has a young man to see who she has had no time for in the last days, she looked a little woebegone and said she must return, she is needed. She also mentioned that her young man leaves for deployment very shortly. I asked her how many days extended leave she wants, she said two, I made the communications and all is arranged. The young man will pick her up tomorrow at 07:00, take her for breakfast at an el primo and privat facility in City Center and the two will spend the day together, his officer and I have arranged a car and driver and guard for them. I told both of them that she must be back to our house by 19:30 and not a minute later. Our daughter laughed when told of the arrangements and said 'who is the guard for, me or him?'. I told her for both of you, to protect you from him and him from you, but when you return tomorrow eventide your mother and I and you two will have some time to enjoy some good wine and converse on the porch since we are still in our 'velvet fall'. She then told me where the young man is going so while she won't know it, he and I will find time for a talk but methinks after she leaves for up north, there's about a 24 hour window of opportunity.
