Be prepared to see some changes here on DEBBIELANDRY.COM!
So, here we are. I'm trying to find some engaging content for this simple page that will, hopefully, encouraged to re-visit.
Here you go, a little insight into of my Covid lockdown.
Blayne and I played a few private parties and public shows out of state. We played Facebook Live shows for most of the lockdown. I played weekly solo acoustic shows on Thursday nights and then with Blayne on Saturday nights. We enjoyed the real-time interaction with the watchers/listneners. We gained some new friends from all over and enjoyed catching up with all of our friends that joined our trial-by-fire LiveStreaming adventure. You can find the videos on my Facebook page...https://www.facebook.com/DebbieLandryMusic/...if you're curious or want a few laughs...some nights the liquor was flowing, and the comedy show took over.
In Mid-November, I caught a pretty bad case of Covid which shutdown all of our Facebook Live shows. I refused to go to a doctor or hospital, mainly because I felt too bad, but, I aslo refused to be put on a ventilator, which I'm sure they would have insisted on doing. Blayne was very worried as my temperature spiked at 104° F and my oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) got down to 83% at one point. Oxygen saturation (SpO2) is a measurement of how much oxygen your blood is carrying as a percentage of the maximum it could carry. A Pulse Oximeter is used to measure and display the pulse rate while also measuring the SPO2 levels. SpO2 readings are recorded in percentages. For a healthy individual, normal SpO2 should be between 96% to 99%...I was at 83%! But, I still refused to go to a hospital, be put on a ventilator and become a statistic.
So, Blayne and I continued to fight it at home. By the way, Blayne was sick for a day or two at most, and then he was fine. Finally, my fever broke and my SpO2 levels slowly improved. I continued to struggle with shortness of breath which made speaking almost impossible, coughing fits, headaches, loss of appetite, and several other symptoms. So, we finally went to my doctor to get some help with the remaining symptoms that were lingering. At that time, we found out I had managed to get a slight case of pneumonia...on top of all the residuals of Covid. I'm still battling post-Covid and pneumonia lung/breathing issues now. My SpO2 levels are up into the mid-90's and I'm still dealing with lung/breathing issues, but, every day gets a little better. If/when you see Blayne, please thank him profusely for taking such good care of me during my illness. I would not have made it without him! ♥
That being said, let's move forward to our current musical situation for April 2021, and possibly into May...
BLAYNE AND I ARE PLAYING ON FACEBOOK LIVE AGAIN!
I'm trying to get myself ready to sing and play guitar in public again, after about 5 months of dealing with my heath issues. This was the longest I've went without gigging since the early 90's! Blayne and l are playing Saturdays at 7pm Facebook LIVE. The previous link will take you to my Facebook page where we will be live streaming. Watch my page for the live video, then join us by clicking play. Be sure to tell us hello...we like to greet everyone that joins us. You can then choose how much you want to interact with us and the other watchers. ;)
Thanks for checking in on me, here in my little corner of the world-wide-web. ♥
KEEP SAFE & ROCK ON! :D
