Just got Herself back from the Thoracic Medicine department after a hour long exam / chat post her CAT scan, blood work, and lung function tests. And the good news is it isn't the Big C - it's "Long Covid" Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) causing a thickening of the lungs and reducing oxygen take up. Which explains why her SATs are almost never in the 90s, and more often in the low 80s ... the X-Rays and CAT show loads of white lines throughout the lungs where the interstitial material has thickened considerably.

So the next bit is a "Bronchoscopy and Bronchoalveolar Lavage" (shove a camera into her lungs and wash'em out to see what is in there) in a few weeks, and a delivery of oxygen tanks tomorrow! Then we'll see if steroids can start to reverse the problem or not.

Looks like I got off pretty lightly - my Sats are 96~98 most of the time, and the dizzy spells seem to have worn off. Oh, and my hair seems to have stopped falling out!

This isn't "just a bad flu" - this really does damage to as many systems as it can ... Sigh | :sigh:

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
