My spouse, coping with meals poisoning, summited Mt Kilimanjaro(19,341 toes) in August of 2019. All with out having to take a seat down and relaxation on the evening of the particular summit.
In April of 2020 she will get COVID, has a fever, loses all sense of odor, and it takes her quarter-hour to go up the steps, having to take a seat down for breaks each jiffy as a result of she will be able to’t get air. It is not a wheezing sensation, she’s breathes but it surely feels just like the air is skinny. We ponder taking her to the emergency room as we hear the fixed drone of ambulances passing by. We all know that so long as she will be able to get her pulse ox to 90% with an oxygen masks the paramedics will not hassle taking her. I get up most nights and put my hand close to her mouth to verify she remains to be respiratory. This goes on for 11 days. Two days after the fever subsides, she decides to go exterior. It takes an hour for her to stroll across the block, virtually collapsing a number of instances.
Getting to position the place she felt regular took months. COVID isn’t any joke.
