Welp, spoke too soon.

Tonight's test was positive.

See you on the other side, hopefully in 5 to 7 days.
Hopefully you'll only feel it for a few days like the rest of the family. For me,, the stuffy nose lasted for weeks.

My eldest had a nasty head cold.  They've been symptom free since last Friday, and tested negative. Was about 5 days of symptoms for them.

My wife had a nasty head cold and her cough was icky.  She's improving more slowly than my eldest did, as she's on day 6 of symptoms, and still coughing (though less, finally)! She doesn't feel terrible...she just can't kick the cough. Still testing positive.

I have the sniffles and a scratchy throat.  Day 4 for me.  I barely feel sick, other than being more tired than usual.  If I hadn't tested positive, I'd chalk this up to seasonal allergies (and the symptoms may just be....no idea...maybe I'm asymptomatic and positive with allergies).  Very faint positive test this morning.

Wife and I are both on antivirals.

Nobody, so far, had it bad enough that we ever worried about hospitalization or feared for our health.

Two younger kids continue to be symptom free and test negative....so far.

Are the little ones vaccinated?

Your symptoms sound like what mine were. I had like one day where i think i might've been a little feverish. It was basically like having allergies or a slight head cold. My mom had a nasty cough and sore throat for 3-4 days. She was living on tea and soup. My dad and her bf had symptoms like mine.

Paxlovid?

Wishing you a speedy and complete recovery.

LOL! Sorry, I have to laugh at this only because nobody has called my two youngest "little" in a very long time.  My son, who's my middle child, is 6ft7 (and 17).  My youngest daughter is 5ft10, 14, and built like a linebacker. Smiley

They are both fully vaxxed and  boosted.  And their symptoms have been even less than mine.  Two days of the sniffles and a sore throat...and low energy.  They are probably going back to school on Friday.

We are basically all through it at this point!  Everyone has recovered fully.  Two youngest still test positive, but....school says they have to come back after 5 days if they have no symptoms, and just mask.  

Yay to approximately 90 days of immunity.  I think I'll go out and lick some fire hydrants.

Here in Mexico the fifth wave of COVID has already begun, a time of sudden changes in temperature with the rainy season and a lot of heat, like many friends, my family and I went through mild symptoms, my wife remains with persistent cough and treatment doctor, I hope it doesn't get worse and we'll be better soon.  peace

Fuck, I've got it and I was every where this week with all kinds of people.  But not with my pregnant daughter or my 89 year old mother.  Just feels like a cold with body aches.  Yesterday was the worst of it and I feel better today.

My friend chewed me out for 5 minutes on how this effects her.  Well the next time I say I want to roll down the window and have a quick smoke before we get there, you may not want to act like it's going to kill you.  Geez, we don't even know I had it then.  We could have both picked it up at the same place.

The good news is I thought I jacked my back up by running the trimmer and mower for 5 hours.  But it's this and I can still do that.  I was going to be really pissed if I couldn't keep up my gardening.

Three other people at pinball have it.  Were they not going to tell us?  They got sick before I did.  I would have started wearing my mask if I had known I had been exposed.

Way better today.  I got that new drug, Paxlovid.  My friend found out another person also exposed her the day after I did.  She's a sitting duck.  Tested negative today but she isn't clear yet.  And add two more pinball players to the list.  Good call, they cancelled play tomorrow night.

Problem though, BA5 variant doesn't give you immunity and you can get it again.

I think I was over it yesterday.  I kind of like revisiting the covid stay home policy.  I did get an email from the county health department ordering me to do certain things.  Kind of weird getting "ordered".  No consequences threaten for not following orders.  They were collecting data for the most part and giving advice.

You think the saying, avoided me like the plague, will be replaced by, like covid?   hihi

I was thinking today, gunned down may someday be replaced with droned down.
