My dad had to go to the ER yesterday and ended up testing positive for Covid. He is 76 and high risk as he has Myasthenia Gravis , which is a neuromuscular disease (heís had it for about 6 years). I spoke to him around 7:30pm yesterday before the positive result and he was doing OK but didnít really want to talk for long.

His symptoms started last Thursday - he has had a fever and vomiting. They finally called their doctor yesterday as he couldnít keep anything down so he wanted him to go to the ER. My mom is very depressed at the moment as she canít see him and he doesnít want to talk to anyone, which is making things worse for her. He is on an IV for fluids and oxygen as well.

Some of you may have met him over the years at a tailgate, he hasnít been in a while due to his health though.

Being isolated has to be terrible for him. And I imagine your mother, as well.

Maybe you guys can send cards and motivational messages?

Think my brother and I are going to get an echo show to put in his room. They have one at their house so my mom and dad would at least be able to see each other. Hopefully the nurses will help get it on the internet, we'll log into the account before we take it over. He's not very good with technology so I'm not sure he will want to do it, but it's worth a shot.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. Amazingly my mom tested negative, she got her results back yesterday. My dad had another Covid test done before he went to the hospital that was going to take 5 days to get back (same one my mom got) and that one was positive as well. We were hoping there was an outside chance that the one he got in the ER was a false positive.

He is doing about the same he says, doesnít feel any worse. It has been really frustrating not being able to have someone at the hospital to advocate for him. He is on a lot of very specific medication for Myasthenia Gravis which does not interact with other medications well. Last year when he was in the hospital they almost killed him by giving him a medication he shouldnít have been given. If my mom wasnít there to see what had happened he likely would have died. It was not a good situation. they do have patient advocates at the hospital my mom found out, and she really likes the lady she was assigned so that is some good news.

Again, thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers. Iím not a religious person, but my mom is and she really appreciates all of the prayers coming her way!

My dad is 83 with dementia. He had a fever with a touch of pneumonia in April. They decided not to test him because he only had a temp for about 24 hours.
Got a fever again in May. Tested positive.
Symptoms started to fade and bloodwork returned to normal in about 2 weeks. First 2 tests were positive. Third test was 3 weeks to the day and was negative.

And yes the really hard part that most donít understand until it hits home is you canít see them; you canít be there for any situation

Not really. He golfs a few times per week, we are thinking it was at the golf course.

Sorry to see the development there. Prayers and concern for you and yours. Hope it goes as well as possible. Not getting to see my mom who has been in and out of quarantine is painfully frustrating. Saying some more tonight.

So sorry to hear the update. This virus is as serious as it gets and we all wish the best for everyone who contracts it. You and your family will be in my thought sand prayers. Sadly there's not more those of us on the outside looking in can do. If there were we certainly would.
