Far Guy got really sick ( coughing non stop and breathing was difficult) in the early morning hours of Monday. After a two hour wait in the Emergency Room waiting area he was finally seen by a Doctor. They ran every test you can imagine, he does not have Covid, the flu or RSV and he does not have a Pulmonary Embolism.
He does have fluid in his lungs so they admitted him to the hospital, he will be there a few days...they are giving him IV antibiotics which should work pretty fast. I left before he had an actual room, the fellow in the bay next to him had been waiting eight hours for a room....so he could be in the ER area a long time waiting for someone to be discharged or a death. The hospital is full. The Nurses are not good at IVs there either...ten tries...he feels like a pin cushion.
He was breathing better when I left late Monday afternoon.
