    . ..not that I ever thought it would be.
    Thanks to the local manifestation of the Body of Christ, I am bearing up under it all. When my physical, mental and spiritual strength returns, possibly weeks from now --I will have more to say.

    Oh, my friend, do not give into the desire that usually comes to let it overcome you.

    My heart plea to the Almighty God is for any believer who suffers, but more so for those I regard as faithful brothers such as you.

    Keep us informed and may you have an unusual awareness of His presence, preservation, and peace!

    I had it last year, was hospitalized eight nights, with six in ICU. Praise the Lord I didn’t have to go on the vent, but if I had waited another night or two to go to the ER, I may not be typing this. I’d went a week earlier and everything came back negative. A week later an X-ray showed lower left love pneumonia. A couple days later it was double pneumonia and positive for COVID, after four negatives earlier. It took me close to two months to get over it. I was off work for 27 days.

    Father, I pray for my Brother’s healing. Give him strength to get through this. Bless his family to be safe from this as well. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

    Get well soon.

    Consider www.budesonideworks.com as a treatment.

    I personally know dozens who’ve done this and they’ve fully recovered. IDK if it’s a “magic bullet” ... but I don’t think the protocol has lost anyone yet.

    May have to claim bronchitis to get the script filled locally ... the website has options.

    You are lifted up right now.

    Brother Tim: My thoughts and prayers are with you. Having suffered through Covid for weeks this past summer I commiserate with your sufferings. It was by far the worst time of my life. Praise the Lord it was not my time to leave and be with the Lord, nor do I believe it is yours. The Lord has much important work for you to do.... preaching, educating, edifying, encouraging, challenging and rebuking.... all to the glory of God! Recovery takes time, but there IS light at the end of the tunnel! Your brother in Christ thankful for your God ordained ministry, (frequently served up with a keen sense of humor), Rand (aka ICONBUSTERS).

    A number of people in my church have had Covid in the past year. Most have recovered. Two of our elderly are in heaven. God has you in his hand. May his daily grace abound to you as your body works to stave off the enemy.
    Peace

    I got vaxed and missed out on it so far. But God is merciful and as scripture often says "and it came to pass". The same is true of our suffering, it came to pass.

    "It came to pass" simply means "at that time."

    Well, here is my update. I think I'm around 95% of what I was. (Actually 30 pounds lighter.). It's my opinion that I didn't have COVID at all. I didn't have fever or chills. I didn't have diarrhea or vomiting. I didn't have a runny nose or sneezes. At most, I had an occasional light cough.
    I did have bodily weakness and the need to sleep more often. I had an aversion to food. For more than ten days all I had was water (tea), oranges and applesauce.
    I also had a slight case of pneumonia.
    I took no medicines for anything. I just continued my intake of supplements --Quercetin, Zinc, Vitamin D3, Vitamin C etc.
    I got the "thing" -- whatever the thing was, on Nov. 21. I went to a clinic on the 26th. An internist tried to stick that thing way up my nostril. I didn't let him. "The test results" showed that I tested positive for COVID. I don't think so. First of all, I do not trust the validity of the PCR tests, and neither did the inventor --Kary Mullis. He had said it should not be used for diagnostic purposes.
    I'm grateful to my church family. I also got a glimpse of my mortality and long to be in Heaven with my Savior.
