Over the past week, I had an adventure.

Drove to Phoenix to spend time with daughter and family. Came down with Covid (finally, after staying clean for two years) and then a severe episode of sciatica. The latter was so excruciating that on Sunday morning, I passed out in the bathroom, toppling over backward and hitting my head on the tile floor. I was completely unable to move and had Claudia and the VRBO landlord call an ambulance. I was taken -in agony- to the Mayo Clinic, where they took a head CT, chest X-rays, and hip X-rays. That's where I learned that I had not only Covid, but hip arthritis plus sciatica.

I never thought I would utter the sentence "I've fallen and I can't get up" but that's exactly what I said to the ambulance tech. He thought that was proof that I was out of it, and he was likely right.

Anyway, after resting for a day, Claudia and I managed to drive back home, arriving just a while ago. I am now Mr Gimpy, hobbling around with a cane and gobbling Tylenol like it was Halloween candy. Will see the local Doc as soon as I can and see what lies ahead.

We'll never know who gave what to whom, because our daughter was feeling bad when we arrived, but now all five of us have Covid. My case was no worse than several winter coughs I've had in the past, but it is true that some things do taste weird now. Hoping that Claudia's case is also mild, as she is now in only her third day of it and she managed to drive the whole way home.

Things will get better, pal. Hang in there.
Speaking generally, I have confidence in Mayo Clinic.

So there's that.

You're tougher than this. Speedy recovery.

Man - that has been a rough combo, and hope you are feeling a lot better by now. On top of the discomfort and injury, it came in and messed up up some nice family time. Best wishes, and get well quickly.

Damn, that's some bad luck. I get sciatica every few years and that's bad enough without the covid mixed in.
Hope everyone heals up good.

Get well soon, that includes the whole family!

Tough with the arthritis, bloody thing. Lucky you didn’t do yourself a real injury with the fall.

I’ve had COVID twice since June. Not fun at all and I don’t get paid for not working.

Take care and hopefully you ride these ailments out ok.

Sounds like a rough trip. There’s not much worse than feeling like hell while puking and driving long distance. Years back we did a week long boat trip up lake Chelan to Stehekin. We had a fantastic trip but the last day I contracted Beaver Fever (giardia) and was miserably sick. I had an 8+ hour trip home towing the boat through July 4th traffic. I finally couldn’t do it any more and about 45 minutes from home I did the Chinese fire drill on the Tacoma narrows bridge.

We all took ivermectin at the first sign of the symptoms of covid and it seemed to set us straight within 24 hours. Good luck to you all with your recovery…..you’ll be fine.
