Any updates or does silence imply that Fry is dead?
Smell is coming back somewhat. Very faintly but I can make out different smells now. If you crop dust my office I'm gonna know about it but just barely.Any updates or does silence imply that Fry is dead?

Taste is still pretty much gone. I can identify salty vs sweet, but can't identify flavor whatsoever. If you gave me a cookie with sweet BBQ sauce on it there'd be no difference between that and say, chocolate syrup.
One of the very few things I actually enjoy eating are saltines because I can somewhat make out the salt (it's very diminished though), and even before 'rona there's no other taste. So saltines are pretty much same as before, just a more bland version.
The owner of our locker here in town is probably wondering if I died or moved though, because I haven't bought any meat since the beginning of August. I should probably swing in there and let him know what's up. He's a good dude with a good business and fair prices.
Thought I'd give a quick update in case anyone cares to read.
Smell - Mostly back. I'd say 80% holding steady over the past couple weeks. No real distortion that I can tell from previous. I'm hoping it continues to get stronger.
Taste - Somewhat back. I am however noticing some huge differences. The most prominent being I'm super sensitive to salt now for some reason. Some things I ate before, when I eat them now it's just too overpowering. My best friend's wife makes the world's best cheesy hash browns, ate some at our tailgate Saturday and it was all I could taste. She doesn't even add salt to the recipe because there's enough in the cheese. Had some of those snakebite appetizers with cheese and diced jalapenos at Texas Roadhouse the other day and same thing.
Ranch dressing and anything with that sort of dairy "twang" tastes ridiculously bitter. I didn't eat a lot of ranch dressing before covid, but I liked it. If this keeps up there won't be anymore ranch.
I guess the main thing is that I'm not picking up the nuanced flavors yet, or at least not enough that I'm back to normal. I'm getting salty, bitter, and sweet easily, and those flavors seem to be magnified big time.
One weird thing...fruit tastes the same as before and it's amazing. Ate 2 nectarines, 2 oranges, and 2 bananas yesterday. I don't know if I think it's amazing because it's one of the few things I have that isn't distorted, or what.
Smell I'd say is 80-90% and not changing anymore, better or worse.Did you ever get everything completely back?
