    Eek, glad you are on the mend. I've got a lung disease so I'm really worried about getting it. 
    Fingers crossed you don't. Perhaps you already know about oximeters, but if you don't, maybe check whether it's worth it to get one at home (~ £20 on Amazon). I didn't have one, but a friend dropped off his oximeter at my door and it provided peace of mind that my oxygen levels were fine and there was nothing to worry. I knew nothing about silent/happy hypoxia and oximeters before this. I also found out that it's much better to sleep on your stomach if you have any trouble breathing due to coronavirus, as it puts less pressure on lungs. 

    Thanks all for the kind words!

    Glad your friend loaned you one. I worry easily about things like this - so bought one early in the crisis too.
