Covid 19


#582

Thinking of you, hope everyone has a mild case!


#583

Holy crap! I am sorry to hear that. Seriously. Crush up and snort zinc pills and vote Red, Sir. :frowning:

They are testing us randomly at work. I’ve been tested twice. A colleague of mine was tested 3 times within 10 days.


#585

So, we are web-schooling our boys and my oldest can be frustrating. I told him he needed to rewrite an answer to a question and he called me a “motherf*cker.”

I said, “You’re right buddy, but that’s not a nice way to say that.”

Full disclosure, he learned the word from me, of course.


#586

Oh fuck. I’m sure you and your girl will be okay. Really hoping your mom makes it okay.


#587

Wishing you the best Nick.


#588

Damn, Nick. I hope all of you will be ok. :two_hearts:

They keep saying to us at work, it’s not if but when we get it. Are we all going to get it despite our best efforts?


#589

Unless Trump’s experimental treatment consisted injecting him with all of the vaccine supply in the making (which can’t be ruled out), we’ll have a vaccine before all of us get it.


#590

Thanks, everyone!


#591

sorry to hear Nick – hope you and your family get through this ok

An update.

My mom is feeling a little better. Still not in the clear by any means. My dad tested positive. His heart surgery on the 12th is off…which is a huge bummer. He needs it. He’s been in AFib all but about a week since July. He’s had five or six cardioversions. Three of my nephews have tested positive. My nephew’s wife has tested positive. My girlfriend is really sick. She feels like shit. She’s quarantining with me. My symptoms have gotten worse, but I don’t feel as shitty as she does. I’m really achey and my head is pounding.


#593

Stay strong.

Thinking about your parents and rest of your family.


#594

Thanks for the update. Keep us posted Nick, we’re all thinking about you and your family.


#595

ugh that sounds terrible; I hope things turn around soon. Thinking of you and your family


#596

Keep us posted, Nick. Sending love/strength your way.

Currently I cannot smell anything and I can barely taste. I drank some Booker’s last night and it was just like fueling up. Speaking of fuel, I even tried to smell gasoline (which on a good day is barely stronger than Booker’s). Nothing. This is the weirdest symptom so far.


#598

How’s your energy and breathing?


#599

I am pretty tired. I think my breathing is fine though.


#600

Good. Hope that’s as far as it goes.

I am hard of smelling anyway, so I can commiserate if you need. If the smell is strong, I can tell it exists, but often cannot tell what it is. Oddly, I can still taste fine, and in fact discern delicate flavors well.

Me driving down the road: ‘Oh that smells nice, is someone having a BBQ?’

Wife: ‘That’s manure.’
