Recovering from COVID

Typical message from a recovering COVID patient in the Michigan prison system: "COVID is increasingly depressing. My friend Robert died on Monday. I've known him since the 90s. He had other health issues, and after his positive result, he was rushed to the hospital. That's three people in three days. Spent most of the day training or playing in the snow with Bookie, the dog I am training. It is sooo good to be healthy enough again to do energetic stuff with the puppy! Also making the day better was pizza for lunch. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but after months of mushy, paste-like hotdogs a real meal was fantastic. All I can do is continue to trust in God."
