It did however drop back to three and two a few times, but not for long, whereas it did not increase to level six and five. As to my eye, no change from yesterday.

It is hard to report from the health side when there is little if any change. Since the reports are positive it is great to just report, the same as the day before. I do take my vitals, blood pressure, weight, pulse oximeter and temperature, twice a day, and they look good.
