Oxygen is normal-low, steroids seem to be helping. As long as I can stay normal for several hours, including while walking around my room, I'll be out today or tomorrow. That also pends additional tests coming back and showing my various symptoms are still doing okay.
They'd rather get me out as long as I'm stable and responding well to treatment, but if something happens again and things go south, they'll readmit me without going through the ER. But if my oxygen drops or if the second round of tests comes back showing that I'm getting worse, I'm in for at least 24 hours, probably until at least Monday.

Right now, long-term effects, while horrifying, are second to short-term effects. It isnt uncommon for people to get sick, get better, and then end up back in the hospital even worse. And the more intervention you require, the worse the prognosis for both short and long-term impact. I didnt need a ventilator, but needing oxygen is still a big deal.
Any number of my organs could be messed up forever, but at least I made it through the initial danger.

That's good news Brando in a small way. I will keep on sending good juju.
I may get it next, My brother is deathly afraid of the virus but he wanted to eat out at his favorite restaurant and it had dubious covid practices in place. We ate out twice while I was last in Tucson.

This has been, without a doubt, the worst sickness I've ever had. Last Thursday was by far the worst, when I legit thought I was dying in the ER, but it hasn't been easy since. No extreme shortness of breath, but it's still been difficult and painful. Nothing that's required oxygen.
At this point, I'd say it's dulled into being really sick, and no longer feels dangerous. I'm hoping to return to work (from home) tomorrow. We'll see how that goes, because I haven't been up for an entire day yet, so it may go horribly, but it's worth a shot.

I can somewhat taste stuff now. It has to be a real strong taste, and it barely registers, but its something. I also showered today for the first time in close to a week. Ive been avoiding it as long as possible because we only have one shower and I didnt want to use it, but I waited until everyone was done with the bathroom for a while, and nobody else would be showering, and did a quick shower and shave.
