I'm home from hospital where I almost died of the virus that I contracted on May 12. If anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer them. I made a long post on FB that is public under Russell Floyd (profile pic is Kobe Bryant and daughter) as well
Glad you’re ok man.

Enough already. My gawd at some of this and the petty name calling. It’s a golf forum with nearly 7 million posts, amazing events, etc. yet the same few continue to show getting along with others is impossible. Pretty sad.
I am surprised you are surprised. I would suggest that a golf forum, or any forum, still represents a microcosm of society. I would be more surprised if this kind of behavior didn't occur.

Dude...if you’re seriously coming here reporting people because you’re too much of “fill in the blank, use your imagination” to have a discussion then this probably isn’t the place for you.

I don’t agree with a lot of crap in here and in other places within the forum and I’ve never...ever reported someone. That’s just cowardly.

Get a life and grow some thicker skin, pal.
THP is the nicest forum I have ever seen. The vast majority of people are well mannered and polite. Some other forums can get seriously nasty. Truck on over to Reddit for an example.

Tell us about it when you can.
Il keep it short. I play poker for a living and someone at game had it. I'm a big guy and always warm and was freezing. The tell tell sign between flu and Civic is your taste buds. I ate chefs favorite food and it tasted awful. For 5 days I sat home drinking fluids with temp fluctuations between 98-101. On may 20, 9 days after first symptoms I had 104 and couldn't breathe. That's when I went to hospital. So many things I could say but they put me on Resdesivir which is drug they've been having success wit. 5 day IV plus other drugs and on oxygen. I'll answer anything

Did anybody else at the game get it? Or was it at a casino that you weren’t familiar with the other players?

Just curious, how old are you?

Glad you’re on the road to recovery. Curious if you have high blood pressure and/or diabetes. I understand meds for these issues can create treatment challenges for Covid-19.

I used to have high blood pressure but not in years. They checked my blood pressure religiously while there

But I think the heavy sanitization mid-week is what they are going for - not parental convenience.
I totally agree, but I also agree that 4 day week is easier on the parents if a Monday or Friday. I’m curious how our school will handle this as we are looking for a new superintendent right now.

Good read, thanks for sharing. Couple of questions, if you don’t mind. How old are you? Immune deficiencies? How long before you started feeling better after they started you on R? Did you/they consider Hydroxichloroquine? Congrats on the recovery.
