We had several inches of snow overnight. This afternoon is sunny and crisp. Much warmer with rain by late week.
We are doing much better, save for the ongoing fatigue and occasional brain fog. We are deeply appreciative of all the care and well wishes you have sent our way. Thank you!
One thing is clear, Covid is not just a cold!
I’ll write a real post as soon as I have some energy.

Brain fog is horrible. I had that when I had chronic fatigue. Rest seems the only cure. Good to hear you are both recovering though. All the best.
Suzanne, I am glad to hear the brain fog is in your past. Yes, rest does help. I also get it as a result of post-polio syndrome. I am trying to learn pacing……
I’m sorry to hear you still get it. I still get muddled up over spoken words sometimes. Pacing, and taking time out to just relax and have fun. I love laughing and like watching stupid funny show re-runs on TV when I get overwhelmed. 🙂
I watch old Warner Brothers cartoons….
Good to hear you are both feeling better but sorry it is such a prolonged recovery. It would be nice to not have to talk about Covid, but I’m thinking it will at the very least be at the back of our minds for quite a while to come. 😷
Judy, I spoke with my physician niece the other day. She said it is not unusual for these symptoms to persist two months or more post even a relatively mild infection. I suspect we will be addressing Covid for some time to come.
Please take good care of yourself and Jennie. I totally understand the frustration of fatigue and brain fog – both Jim and I are having to cope with it for reasons other than Covid. I find it frustrating that it gets in the way of my creativity and logical thinking. I have a hard time connecting thoughts together for posts – does it affect you in that way?
Hi Pat, I also have post-polio brain fog at times. Yes, sometimes I simply can’t process anything which makes problem solving difficult. Then it is time for a nap. Sleep usually resets everything. Still, all this can be so frustrating! Sorry you also have to deal with it. Fortunately this seldom happens in meetings….
So very glad you are both feeling better! Be sure to continue to get plenty of rest and sip whatever hot drink and soup you like best.
Thank you, Laurie! Yes, rest, warm liquids, and soup.
I’m glad if you’re feeling better.
Thank you, Colette!
Hope you both heal soon.
