General COVID-19 Topic


Recommended Posts

Once the covid numbers spiked in Dec. - Jan, and it was reported that those in my situation (HSCT on Immune Suppression) have a 67% 30 day survival rate after catching Covid... I stopped playing golf.

Now I'm 2 weeks plus from my second Moderna shot, reconsidering golf.  Not sure.  See the Doc next week, maybe he'll say wear a mask, wouldn't want to do that on a warm summer day walking a golf course.

Seems to me, we need to get the majority of the population vaccinated or we will always be struggling with the things we are struggling with today, economy, ER room capacities, people afraid to come out of the house, sickness/death, etc. The website below shows the latest stats:

We were OK the day of the shot but the next morning my wife was feeling pretty badly. She had aches, a bit of nausea, fever/chills and a headache. She got out of bed and took a couple ibuprophen and then went back to bed for a few hours. I wasn't nearly as bad but spent the day watching the Genesis through frequently closed eyelids. Just felt very tired. By bedtime that night we were both much better and today the symptoms are gone. I'm thinking I'll try to get out on the golf course in between monsoons Wednesday.

In general immune response from the vaccine occurs 12-24 hr after and is typically stronger for the 2nd dose.

Please be careful. Immunosuppressants can reduce the effectiveness of the vaccine. If you are able try and get an antibody titer.

The public health measures that slow the spread of the novel coronavirus work...

Not only flu but also colds. Not having kids in daycare or school, not being in offices, stronger hand hygiene and masks make a big difference

My arm bothered me about 8-10 hours later, and that pain lasted for about 36 hours. On the 2nd dose, I got some bad chills about 12 hours after the shot.

It’s a bit too early for that. We don’t really know how to interpret the results at this time.

I didn’t get the chills last night, but feel achy this morning with a dull headache. Arm is more sore than last time.

This was my exact reaction to the second Moderna shot.

Did you also have the Jimmy Buffett song My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink and I Don’t Love Jesus in your head? It is appropriate for this side effect.

It didn't help that my allergies were like a 9/10 that day.

Had my first Pfizer (asked for J&J, but it got switched to Pfizer due to problems with J&J) on 4/10.  Had my second this Saturday 5/1.

Both just a little sore arm, but nothing else.  Hoping that is all.

Glad to say that no Jimmy Buffett songs have been in my head.

I was supposed to have a blood draw today for lab tests and an appointment with the Hematology Oncologist tomorrow.  Meanwhile Scripps Health yesterday was hit with a ransomware attack and I got a phone call letting me know my appointments are cancelled.  Not sure how this will all sort out but I'm hoping I don't go to the end of the line, the Dr. is usually booked up for a month or two.

When I do get the appointment I want to ask the Dr. about life-style recommendations given the Moderna vaccination, and the Jan. 2021 Lancet study on HSCT with immune suppression and Covid 19.  Specifically regarding outdoor activities like golf.

California has continued to do better than any other state, with the lowest per capita coronavirus case rate in the nation over the last week. Texas has double California's rate; New York, quadruple; and Florida has nearly six times California's case rate. Michigan still has the nation's highest rate, 299 cases per 100,000 residents — 10 times California's rate of 29 cases per 100,000 residents.

Florida is doing so well, eh?

    • The guy, the father, with the most heartfelt family that runs out and enthusiastically greets him on the 18th green!  That's who I want to win. I'm a softie on Father's Day who loves that scenario.
    • Played Oakhaven Golf Club yesterday 70.9-122-6608. Shot 89, 43 front 46 back. It rained the entire time during the front 9 but held it together reasonably well. One penalty stroke on the par 5 6th after rinsing my approach shot that came off the heel a bit and was about 8 yards short of the carry. Got up and down from my drop to save a bogey. Stopped for a few beers at the turn and let the rain pass through. Cleared up for a beautiful back 9. The back is completely different than the front and much tighter, water and tree lined. No penalty shots on the back, but got behind trees twice where I had to punch out. I feel I am on the cusp of another breakthrough with my game in the right direction. I have noticed as I begin to tire late in a round, some tendencies start easing back in causing me to push driver or minimally leak it right slightly putting me in some crappy positions. Need to keep it in mind and focus more to drop a few strokes.  
    • Grade: A Likes: It is a very simple drill with no training aids. It worked for me as a bogey golfer to improve my ball striking. That is why it gets an A grade. It can be used on the course. I got my first eagle using this drill as my on course swing, although I had a problem with hitting the ball over the green as I was getting more distance than with my normal swing. Dislikes: It would be nice to see a student work through this drill. I had to experiment a bit to figure it out.  Although Cheney says you can or maybe should use this short follow through as you swing, his own swing has a full follow through.  He should explain how to get to that full follow through. I would like to see him apply this to driver if it can be.
    • Slow doesn’t necessarily apply to putting. Except that it means don’t just rapidly hit a bunch of putts. Take your  time.
    • Anyone even or better has a real chance. I took another look at the final posted scores from yesterday. Wow, today has some big names in contention. Very cool afternoon watching for father’s day.
