    Working From Home

    Well, I am now working from home and have been all week per my employer. here is the back story:

    My wife was thought to have a simple sinus infection, as she is prone to do this time of year, and prescribed antibiotics. OK for about a week or so, the usual, but started to digressed substantially since last Sunday. Shortness of breath, coughing, aching all over, but no high temperature. On Monday her doctor suggested she up the antibiotics to be safe and since she has been dealing with breast cancer treatments recently with a diminished immune system, she should be tested for the China bug. That was Monday, tested her Tuesday, and as of today, still waiting on the results.

    In the mean time she has not gotten better. She is weak, short of breath, and has a cough, but still no fever. In 25 years I have never seen her this sick Her temp is normal and her oxygen blood ratio is above 96 so we are thinking it's just a real bad case of the flu. This morning she is no worse but no better either. Irregardless, if she ain't better soon she is going to the emergency room, although she is fighting me tooth and nail on that.

    I am hoping to get the test results today and I am betting she is negative but who knows. I gave up medical school to be a salesman.

    Working from home is easy for me since I can't see anyone and I get that it's proper till we get the results. It also allows me to take care of my wife because she is struggling to move around on her own. I would be home with either way even without the test but getting paid makes it easier. Kudos to my owner.


    A couple of prepper notes:

    1) Two story houses are problematic when dealing with someone who is sick or has limited mobility. ( I knew this )

    2) I had all the medical supplies needed, Thermometers, Pulse oximeters, antibiotics, over the counter meds, etc. so that was a relief.

    3) I am less then enthusiastic about her Doctor. Going to change that.

    4) This just reinforced what I already knew, when SHTF, you truly are on your own.

    5) I married a tough old broad.

    Hang in there, lady!

    What am I saying? She survives Prepared One; a virus ain't nothing compared to that.
