      I would like to see a coordinated effort with doctors gathering and sharing this information to establish patterns and determine what is virus-related. This would advance understanding rapidly. I hope your symptoms go away quickly and your body forgives and forgets.

    Excellent article Kristin. I’m 77 & have chemo every month for stage 4 cancer. People often look at me askance when I park with my handicap tag. But they have no idea that during the past 9 years of chemo I count myself lucky-even though 2 hours of any activity is about my limit. On cross country flights to visit my grandchildren I use the wheelchair service in airports to save my energy for time with family when I arrive. And I count myself lucky to have access to good healthcare here in America!
