The Second Time Around

Having Covid-19 sucks.

Having Covid-19 a second time, even after being fully vaccinated, sucks even more.

My favorite songwriters, Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn wrote a song for Frank Sinatra- The Second Time Around, the sentiments of which are decidedly not, my friends the case with Covid-19.

On a brighter note, my primary care physician was able to get me in to the local hospital when I received the monoclonal antibody infusion. I don’t know if it did any good or not as my symptoms were even more severe after I had the treatment, but 16 hours later, the fever finally broke.

BTW – The first time I had Covid, I was running a 104+ fever for 4 straight days. This time, it got up to 104.4, but only lasted a couple of hours.

So… With the monoclonal antibodies in my system, I’ve been told that tests are pretty much useless, and that I’ll test positive for at least three months. The doc at the hospital said to stay away from people until I’m symptom free +10 days. That’s the best part, I don’t have to be around people…

Did I mention that Covid-19 sucks?
