COVID-19 and Transplant Patients

Logistically:
My husband and I are now telecommuting to work 4 of 5 days per week to limit unnecessary contact with people.
We have switched to church online rather than in person (although it's not the same).
We added food to our cupboards in case we are quarantined.

Emotionally:
I am worried that being immune compromised might make me more susceptible to contracting the virus.
I am worried I might lose my transplant if I get COVID-19.
I am happy people are learning how important it is to wash their hands.

Hi! I’m having some emotional ups and downs since this started. I live on a small island in Florida that has felt very safe. However, it’s spring break and there are many people who have chosen to travel here. I went to our tiny town today and found many people joking about the virus. I was furious! I’ve decided to just stay home. My husband can do the errands. At least I’m in a warm and beautiful place! I’m 9 years post kidney transplant.

I. Had a kidney transplant, the duration:13 years. I am now 18 and a half years right now, will be 19 years in a few months
And I haven't had covid at all.
I don't want to take the vaccine. I am also on immunosuppressives. There are only 8 people in the world who aren't taking immunosuppressants at all.
I have standing orders from my nephrologist, when I'm ready to make a appointment.
I'm very careful, washing my hands, using sanitizer,and the other precautions mentioned here. I don't get the flu shot at all. But I do take vegan Vitamin D, vegan Vitamin B12 ,vegan Moringa, and vegan Omega-3

Everyone here:
Stay Safe, Be Well

Yes.God is good all the time. And all the time His is Good.
I pray everyday.
He's The Great Physician!
