Day 4 – We have covid

Kevin and I both had a pretty rough night. So glad of the bath in this room – it’s been very well used by both of us.

Our symptoms now suggested this may in fact be covid so Kevin decided to walk across the road to Walgreens and get some tests. His came back negative but mine was a definite YES.

Kevin had also pick up a few supplies, like this mega sized bag of 200 cough drops – never seen anything like it before !!

The day was spent just like the previous two. Kevin, being a bit behind me, slept much of the day. I mostly read. My throat was VERY sore and swallowing is very painful and talking challenging. Neither of us had any appetite so just tried to have a few little snacks so our body had some fuel.

The best part of the day would have to be this lovely sunset.

Around 9pm I actually felt like I might be hungry so I made up a little portion of last nights leftovers – some rice, orange chicken and veggies from my soup. Sadly I had to eat it cold but it was still enjoyable.

Day 3 – Sick in bed

After a rough night, sleeping on and off, the day continued in much the same vein. Obviously I was not well enough for our planned activities so they were abandoned.

Instead we stayed in bed. I slept on and off, enjoyed a nice hot bath (to sooth my body aches and pains) and read.

I didn’t even have much of an appetite and just drank half of the tea Kevin had gotten for me earlier (6 staff today at Starbucks instead of the 2 on yesterday). I did manage a bagel for breakfast

Lunch was some mango salsa and corn chips. The rest of the day was exactly like the first half, though my throat was getting sorer and my headaches more intense.

It’s been extra hard being sick and not having a kitchen. I really felt like soup tonight and eventually we found that one of my fav. vegan places, Chef Kenny’s, delivered, and I was able to get a Wonton Ramen Soup. Kevin had the Orange Chicken (which is delicious).

Day 2 – Feeling unwell in Vegas

Luckily the bed at the Rio is super comfy and we both had a really good nights sleep, not even waking up until after the sun was up.

I was REALLY wanting a cup of tea since the dry airconditioned air (plus smoke from last night) had given me a sore throat, and it was about 48 hours since I’d last had one. Kevin was kind enough to head downstairs to get us one from Starbucks. One hour later he returned. Definitely won’t be asking him to do that again, so hopefully we can find somewhere else to get a tea from.

It was Thanksgiving today so most things (away from the Strip) were closed and our only goal was get some groceries from Wholefoods. Of course, we could now only shop for drinks, snacks and breakfast.

We had very lazy relaxed morning. I downloaded photos & video and wrote up a blog post. Kevin played Pokemon, did some work and had a mid-morning sleep.

About 1pm we thought we’d best get a move along to Wholefoods as they were only open till 3pm. It took us some time to find the Uber pick up location but finally we were on our way. A quick 10 mins later we had arrived.

We only had an hour to get what we needed so we moved pretty quickly and were done in just over 30 mins. When we go back on Sunday we’ll have a better look around. At least we now have breakfast, snacks and some drinks.

Back at the Rio we had our lunch? (though it turns out we hadn’t had any breakfast). Unfortunately shortly after this I started to feel really unwell – body aches and pains, headache, etc. But it felt different to a fibro flare.

The remainder of the day was spent in bed reading, sleeping and watching some YouTube with Kevin.

Here’s hoping a feel better in the morning.
