Hey all, being an open person with friends I thought I would share a little something here with all of you I have been personally rewarded by, whether it be advise or help in other ways.
Last Friday I got to feeling pretty rank and Saturday was really down-hill. Saturday night I was flown by Air Evac by my own company to Denver to get help after contracting Covid (we do not know the variant). I was allowed to come home yesterday am via my own air ambulance company again, because my aircraft is frequently in Denver on transfers- with the understanding recovery was in order. They started me on an experimental med for emergent use only that is yet to be approved.
My respiratory system is not working as it should and progress today has been backwards.
As of right now, 11:43 pm mountain time, we are considering a possible trip back to emergent care facility of which we are unclear of the destination yet.
I ask my wife to get my PC and get me to this spot so I could say thank you to those that have made things so exciting for me that I had to say thank you because I do NOT know what will come next. Nobody wants to think about what could happen, but I've silently been concerned of this due to other underlying factors that may complicate things with a total recovery.
I'd like to think I can fight like a big old fat smallie but something inside said I need to drop a note here.
Maybe this is not the place to say this, but I really appreciate the acceptance I feel in this group of very fine people.
I know I have a few people still waiting for fish and I hope with all my heart I can still fill those requests.
I'm not quite ready to throw in the towel and have a lot of fight left. I also respect some here have or are going through harder trials in life. With that said, I hope to be back soon and join in again.
Thanks Guys!
Kenny

Prayers going out your way Kenny!!

Its no fun, I spent about five days in the joint a yr ago on oxygen, I got past the initial covid pretty reasonable I thought but went back to work too soon and got some rock dust in my lungs that were obviously still compromised, wound up with pneumonia in both lungs. My blood O2 levels were way down in the 60s. Ive never spent the night in a hospital in my life. that was a tough one!! wouldn't wish it on anybody!
I hope you will bounce out of it pronto with no problems,, Prayers and Good Luck from your PB family!! Get well Quick!


All the really good ideas I've ever had came to me while I was milking a cow.

Dang Kenny, I guess the flame on both ends of the candle finally met in the middle. I know that there isn't much that I can do from here, but if there's anything that I can do, let me know. Prayers for a fast and complete recovery.

To quote Jimi, Snipe, "Straight ahead."

Focus on the next day and repeat.

We're with you.

Hey all, didn't know I'd be back quite so soon but they didn't ship me out last night. The drugs they started me on have helped with breathing greatly. Far from normal with hills to climb but I "think" the fear of lungs failing is maybe past for now as long as no other issues crop up.
I really am thankful for the kind words here, I guess I was scared more than I knew.
I do know the antibiotics I'm on are such that I can't have visitors for awhile I'm told.
I tried to pull a funny with a nurse and ask if the O2 mask was a matala.. nobody got it, but didn't matter, it was funny to me.
Long road ahead, glad I didn't have to leave for now. Thanks for the prayers all.

In my prayers.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

You are still in our thoughts and prayers for a FULL recovery. Some issues take a fairly long time for the body to fully recover from trauma.

Kenny, I logged on yesterday and read this scary post. What a relief to have your breathing back, right?
I've been facing my mortality the last week and a half as I had open heart surgery for a valve repair last week and spent more than the week in the hospital. Recovery is moving along now. I have my strength and balance, but nearly no endurance. A simple walk to the pond 100' away can leave me out of breath! I was told that is to be expected, but not breathing well is rather spooky!
During any potentially painful procedure in the hospital, I was advised to relax into a "happy place". Each time I would imagine myself in a chair at the end of my dock pitching meal worms and Optimal to the hungry hordes. That got me through it all.
Ponds do serve us well, don't they?!
My absolute best is flowing your way through the several miles that physically separate us. Your bright spirit has helped us all.

4CP,

Glad to hear you are improving rapidly. Very impressive to already be walking to the pond!

Hopefully, you will soon be easily walking down to the dock and chucking feed to your fishies!

Thanks snipe.
I did get to the pond twice today with the sole purpose of enjoying the feasting trout. They are the only fish still visibly taking pellets. Water temp has dropped well below 50 degrees so bass and sunfish are deep and out of view.
Already the walk back to the house is feeling like a stroll instead of a mountain hike.
I'll not be going back to work for many (5 or 6) months, so if you can use a hand at your place later in winter or early spring, just holler. I'll drive over.

Snipe, I just wanted to say prayers for your full recovery and let you know what worked for me. I’m in the high risk group and never got the jab. Covid hit me and my 2 sons in January of this year, by day three I was back to 100% and my sons lasted a week or longer. I took Ivermectin (.4 mg/kg), 50 mg of elemental zinc, and 5000mg of vitamin D. I had my Ivermectin prescription written by a doctor at speakwithanmd.com. Americas frontline doctors is another group you could also contact. The good thing is once you’ve gotten over Covid you then have natural immunity.
