    Who else has caught the Rona?

    Final update: Talked with this lady this AM. O2 sat is 94% at home on supplemental O2 at 1 L/min by NC and she reports feeling great. She will start a slow wean of her steroids now. To me some lessons from this story is that hospital protocols (that have often come about more due to...

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    Just posting this because I can't remember this being brought up previously and more positive data continues to come out now regarding aspirin related to covid 19 prevention even, let alone the decreased disease severity relationship. As with all things, discuss with your doctor first to ensure...

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    Update from the Covid files. In less than 24 hrs on methylprednisolone 40 mg every 12 hrs, and ivermectin 36 mg once daily (along with other lesser treatment additions and being with family), instead of dying right after leaving the hospital ama yesterday, my patient is feeling much better...

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    I really don't know much about possible antiviral properties of silver (it clearly is antibacterial) or possible pulmonary/lung side effects. I think there are doctors that respect patient autonomy however, and would be okay with patients doing silver nebs at home if that is what they want to...

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    I don't agree with anyone being rude. There seems to be a lot going around both ways during this pandemic though, and I feel ashamed of some in my profession. I have been on the phone this week with families of people in the hospital, very reasonable families in my opinion, who have called me...

    Man kills cougar with machete defending his dog

    From the time that lion initiated the attack to the neck on that completely unaware dog to the point of the dog being likely mortally wounded was extremely brief. The guy with the machete acted very quickly. I can't see how the guy running the video inside of the truck could have made any...

    Potential government shut down. Narional forrest

    Under the Obama era shut down, the fed admin had the forest service district employees where I was in Washington State put yellow ribbon across the entrance to any pullout, parking area, or campground, and then they went home. Before I arrived, there was no dilemma about access, because "all"...

    Advice for having a potentially difficult discussion with your hunting partner/Family member.

    I have a couple kids who always borrowed my stuff when they forgot theirs. They got necessary gear like headlamps every Christmas from me. I knew they weren't responsible, so I always brought extra. But as they became older teenagers I gradually made them "suffer" more and more before letting...

    Do you like higher taxes? Too bad, they are coming like it or not...

    I hope your right, but unrelated to any ideology even, when you have for example 35% of the country (on a recent poll) that is so ill informed or brainwashed that they believe over 50% of people with covid get hospitalized, then anything can happen. To me that means that the "big...

    “Don’t shoot my dog” etc

    That is crazy. I think that I may have dealt with that lady before on a lion complaint. I am glad that I didn't know about her shooting at dogs though. She should definitely be fired permanently.

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    Leading scientists working for health agencies are considering making all water not dispensed by the bureau illegal. One scientist, Dr Foochi told the federal news bureau, "People just can't be trusted to manage their own water. I think we can all see that. We have licensed products like...

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    This may seem paradoxical, but I read an immunologist's opinion piece, where he thinks recurrent vaccination with our current covid vaccines after disease may increase the chance of future covid disease effects or the occurrence of diffuse inflamation with future exposure to the disease. So in...

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    Monoclonal antibodies seem to work well for high risk people also, especially if given early...but it is a relatively more expensive treatment in the pre-hospitalization setting.

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    What I am somewhat scoffing at I suppose, is not treating high risk people with cheap seemingly effective medicines who are quite likely to end up in the hospital, regardless of the severity of their intitial symptoms, and not treating low-mod risk people with significant symptoms, especially...

    Who else has caught the Rona?

    I am confused....where do you get that Ivermectin effect washed out when the suspect Egyptian data is removed? I have looked at all of the studies...many with subtherapeutic dosing, etc., and still showed a beneficial effect. And the observational data on large populations in India and...
