Well friends, I just got test results and have tested positive for COVID. I tried to be vigilant on my outings but did realize after the fact that I had forgotten to wash my hands or spray sanitizer when I got in the car.
On Monday and Tuesday nights I was woken out of my sleep with coughs. It’s not unusual for me to wake up at night and cough while I’m up, but this actually woke me up and lasted a while. On Tuesday I had a really bad backache - I thought it was from where I was sitting so didn’t think much of it, but when my appetite started decreasing and I had a fever of 100 I contacted my endo.
I registered for a drive through test which was done on Weds and the results came last night.
My glucose is good overall - I always wondered if you needed to set up a sick day profile for CIQ but mine is working fine. My doctor accesses my numbers through a shared app. I’m testing for ketones which have been small to moderate for the most part. Given my good glucose numbers I attribute them to lack of appetite. The app we share doesn’t include ketones so endo and I will handle that separately.
Feeling okay for the most part - just “under the weather” - not altogether myself. I’ve been a little unsteady on my feet but now get dizzy occasionally so I’m being super careful and hubby is helping me out tremendously. I assume this is mild and of course it could progress, but most of what we hear is about the serious cases and little or nothing about how COVID presents in milder form - so I’m sharing my experience.
Hanging in there and doing my best to manage as always. Thoughts and prayers are always appreciated.
