Take your temperature. And check

There's been a big refresh on and every suffering one of you is advised to check it out. A couple days ago I looked at it and it seemed less informative than it had been weeks ago. Today the Department of Health and Human Services announced there was much new information, and I think it's true.

A new item I tried was a self-evaluation test for adults. I tried to remember my symptoms a week ago and plugged them in. It confirmed my suspicion that if I'd felt a little worse when I woke up in the middle of that night, I should have gone to the ER. Fortunately,  shortness of breath passed quickly once I was awake, and that was about the worst I felt.
