    Default Anyone heard from Robin?

    I’m not sure if anyone saw his post over at SOH, but he had COVID and has spent a couple difficult weeks in hospital. Slowly improving I believe but his last post was a week ago. Haven't heard anything since.

    Hopefully he’s doing ok.

    I've just spoken to Robin on the phone, and whilst he said it was touch and go at one point, he's now on the mend.

    He's still in hospital (with good spirits), and hopes to be posting in the forums in the near future.

    All our thoughts are with you Robin.

    All the best!!

    Hi all, my 4th week in hospital, after going through pneumonia and renal failure.
    At the moment I'm at a rehab field hospital, here in Cape Town, and I'm well over the hump. I'm having physio therapy, as being on my back for 4 weeks, I've no lower body muscle tone, so I can stand, March in place, but I'm unable to walk as yet. So, probably another week here, then 20 days isolation, then home.. Finally!

    Dom, thanks so much for the call, earlier, much appreciated.

    I'll be back!!!

    Are they giving you blood thinners? I have no idea if they prescribe that after an exit from the hospital, but COVID-19 will cause blood clots so you'll want to ask your doctor.

    My sister got this crap back in March. Damn near placed on a ventilator.

    I've heard and read vitamin D helps with getting over COVID-19 and many people have a vitamin D deficiency. So I've been taking 2000 IUs (International Units) (50 mcg micrograms) a day which is a once a day pill. I do need to ask my doctor about that. A doctor I saw on a podcast I think was taking more, I don't know. That may be over doing it. https://www.nutri-facts.org/en_US/nu...endations.html

    Hoping for the best and passing along good vibes.

    Hello Robin
    I hope you get (very) well soon.
    Some months ago you advised me on updating Windows 10.
    I had been reluctant to upgrade from ver 18 something to the latest version of 10.
    You gave the confidence to try.
    My finger hovered over the update button with tremulous anxiety .
    I pressed it ,it updated ,it took a long time ,I waited ,it finished .
    And of course!........ there were no hiccups.
    Fs9 ran just as well as it always has.
    I have continued to keep 10 updated, with no problems encountered ,and Fs9 keeps going on its merry way.

    Cheers and thanks

    Andy
