Brief Update on the Meara COVID Situation

Just want to thank each and every one of you who’ve commented here or emailed me with encouraging words, support, prayers, positive thoughts, and  kind messages. You’ll never know just how much I’ve appreciated every single one of them. 

It’s only been a bit over 48 hours since Mark noticed the first symptoms Friday night, and got the bad news Saturday morning, but so far, the news is good. His symptoms have lessened a bit each day, and right now, he isn’t coughing or running a fever. He’s tired and napping off and on during the day, but that’s to be expected.

As for myself, I still feel fine. (Or as fine as I usually do, anyway, since I have a few health issues I’m always addressing.) In other words, I’m not feeling like I even need to be tested at this point, though I’m definitely staying HOME just in case. No need to endanger anyone else until I know for sure I’m not going to get sick.

So basically, all good news, and we are very hopeful that Mark’s symptoms will not get much worse, if they worsen at all. And hopefully, I’ll never get ANY. I do think we have our vaccinations to credit for his lack of serious progression to date, and hopefully, this is going to end well for both of us.

Thanks again for being such wonderful, supportive folks. You are appreciated and LOVED more than you know!

  1. Glad to know Mark seems to be doing well, Marcia, and that you have no symptoms. My husband had Covid a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough not to get it. We’ve been had vaccinations so although he had a bad time with the cough it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. Sending lots of positive thoughts and virtual hugs.

    • Thanks SO much, Mary. And I’m glad to know your husband didn’t get the really horrible symptoms that some do, and even gladder to know you didn’t get it at all!!! We’ve had the vaccine, too, and are hopeful to get off easier than what some of had to handle. Thanks so much for all the positive thoughts and hugs. Sending them same back to you every day, though I’m behind on my blogging comments, for sure. But I know what you’ve been through and what you’re currently dealing with, and sending you prayers all the time! 🙂 ❤

    • Thanks so much, Kass. I hope he will be, too. He’s better this afternoon than he was this morning, so it’s a good sign. Now if I can just avoid getting sick, it will be great! Thanks for stopping by, too. I really appreciate it! 🙂 ❤

    • Thanks, Pete! I think the vaccine is what’s at play here. It seems to lessen the severity of the symptoms of those who manage to come down with it even after receiving the shots. SO glad we have those on our side. Now to see how he fares with the infusion. 🙂

    • It IS scary, Staci. I feel like I haven’t taken a normal breath since Saturday morning, and I’m worn out, too. But so far, I haven’t exhibited any symptoms, and his have been pretty mild, so I’m counting my blessings! Thanks for the prayers! 🙂
