COVID update-Day 7

April 17, 2021 




I’ve heard it said that day 7 I should “turn a corner”,….not sure if I have actually done that, but I’d like to at least think that I have slid towards the corner and taken a peek! 😉


I started the day doing pretty well, and midmorning I realized that I definitely am sitting with a low grade temp, I believe the Tylenol is what keeps it down. Overall, I feel good like yesterday  with a headache hovering. The chills aren’t too bad, and I’m sure the grey and gloomy day is of no help at all! 😕


I woke up a little hungry, so I ate breakfast again, had my coffee with collagen, and started right in with my water intake.💧 In case I haven’t mentioned it, I strive for a gallon and a half of water each day (with real lemon or lime juice in it) to flush out the toxins and hydrate.  🍋


I listened to several podcasts today, continued reading my book, and watched a “few” food videos. Okay, ‘maybe’ I watched a little more than a ‘few’…… 🙄  *I sure got a lot of good ideas! I love cooking and changing recipes to healthier versions. I can’t wait to be back in my kitchen! 🤗


Speaking of food, I do still have my taste and smell, which is a GREAT thing since some wonderful friends of ours brought over a meal for our family. We are so blessed in so many ways! I have people checking in on me (all of us) all day long. 💗


God teaches us to love our neighbor as ourselves,  we have friends and family near and far that are doing just that; I am grateful and humbled. 💕🙌🏼


I also have many people asking me lots of questions, so I thought I’d try to answer the top ones here: 


  1. What vaccine did you get?    Answer: Moderna
  2. When did you get your second shot?    Answer: February 24
  3. Do you know where you got it (the virus)?  Answer: Not. A. Clue. 
  4. Do you have underlying conditions?    Answer: yes-I have Lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome and other autoimmune issues. 
  5. What things are you doing to manage the symptoms?  Answer: I take Tylenol for headaches, I drink a ton of water w/electrolytes to stay hydrated and flush out toxins, I get up and walk for 10-15 minutes every hour so things don’t settle in my lungs, I go outside when I can to get fresh air and sunshine, I use my Albuterol inhaler, and I take some supplements recommended to me by a trusted friend and physician that knows my personal medical history. 


My isolation is set to end on Tuesday evening. 🙏🏽 As long as I don’t have symptoms on Wednesday morning, I should be able to walk out of my room freely and hug my family-please feel free to pray for me that my body complies with my plan! 🙏🏽


Keepin’ it real,

Elena ♥️

  1. Dear Elena, I have been praying for you since yesterday, when I got onto FB. Didn’t realize it was day 7. I am thankful you’ve gotten a peek around that corner, and praying for you to be symptom-free next Wednesday. Much much MUCH love, Debbie 😍😊💐❤️
