No, I'm not dead.

My daughter's and my symptoms left around Jan 15. Five days later my wife was given a tracheostomy and transferred to a long term acute care facility to continue her recovery. A week or so ago she started breathing on her own and was taken off the ventilator.

I have two back to back interviews this Thursday with two different companies in Pittsburgh. One with a bank and another with my old employer. I've been working for them for over 15 years. This new position is for a full time employee.

Things are looking slightly up.
I'm glad things are looking up for you and your family. Good luck with your interviews!

Happy to hear you and your family are doing better, I will keep your wife in my prayers. My step-son contracted Covid at his job, and 3 weeks of quarantine, he, his wife, and both kids were given the clean bill of health last Friday.

More good news, which just makes me paranoid.

My wife’s trach tube was taken out and she’s going to a rehab facility soon. I started a new job at a local, national bank as a business analyst on Monday with a 5k increase in salary.

I’m just waiting for the rig to be yanked out from under my feet

I don't think so, the economy is starting to bounce back, and with a vengeance! :)
