Preparing for a holiday can take a toll on anyone, and although I had been feeling good, I didn’t want to overdo it. I wanted to give myself plenty of time to cook and clean so I wouldn’t get fatigued, because I'm not eating a Patti pie
I was determined to make this trip and be okay, so I added a wheelchair to my reservation because I didn’t want to take my walker. I know that maneuvering the Atlanta airport can be a lot for a healthy person so I would definitely get winded if I tried to walk through it.
Upon arrival, my new doctor was surprised as every other doctor has been to see a 43-year-old otherwise healthy woman coming in on a walker. This is what COVID has done to me.

A lady was telling me if I don't keep my eyes open the doctor wouldn't discharge me and I would have to stay overnight. Wait, what? I whispered for the nurse to tell me when the doctor was close so I could try to hold my eyes open.
I could hear the doctor's voice reminding me to breathe normally and telling me how great I was doing as I tried not to throw up and resisted snatching the tube from his hands.
Simmons reported to Wells Fargo Center on Monday and took a COVID test. He also passed a physical and held a brief meeting with the Sixers' front office on Tuesday. So, there's a good chance we'll see him in a Sixers uniform this season. But for how long?
