COVID-19 and Feeling Helpless

Posted by marjou @marjou, Feb 6, 2021

Didn’t know where else to go….
Today had to place a 911 call for a friend of mine who has some sort of heart issue. Fairly active at 82 and rarely sick. A week earlier he was in the hospital for fluid around his heart and back in today, but due to COVID am not able to visit or be with him. He has no family here and so glad he called me to be of some assistance in calling ambulance (due to some technical issue with his phone service). Am waiting for phone call from hospital or him but feel utterly useless. So am reaching out for prayers for my friend Dennis. Thank you!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Just Want to Talk group.

Well, vey best wishes to Dennis to overcome. Seems medical personnel are learning more and improving treatments for this weird COVID situation. Did not think it would go on this long………..but when medical professionals tell us the TRUTH (thank you Dr. Faucci), it is better for us to deal with it I believe.
RELATED Q.: I am 80 and healthy. Had my first Vaccination for CO-19 Jan. 29 and second will be Feb. 20 (Pfizer). STRANGE CONCERN: I felt nothing. No pain from needle; no arm soreness; no fatigue; NOTHING at all. I suppose that is great, but strange to have NO reaction?? When I get an annual flu shot I also have almost no reaction (just a slight soreness) in arm. I know it is strange to question why I alone have no reaction to VAC. ??!! What does anyone think? Thank you.

@tennisgolf, many people have had absolutely no reaction to the COVID vaccine. Please see today's podcast with Mayo Clinic infectious diseases expert, Dr. Gregory Poland.
