#802

I’m really sorry to hear Doug; I hope you and your family find your way through this and keep his spirit alive in your memories and stories.


#803

I’m sorry for your loss. I hope you & your family are doing ok.


#804

Thinking of you all Doug.


#805

I’m so sorry for your loss, Dougo. My deepest condolences to you and your family.


#806

Thanks all. My mom is hanging in there. 67 years of marriage is a long time and they both relied so much on each other.


#807

My condolences. Sorry for your loss.


#808

sounds like they are both amazing peeps. that’s quite the legacy…plus, they made some amazing boys


#809

Doug, I am sorry I am just reading this. I am so sorry for your loss. 67 years of genuine adoration is something we could all aspire to. Hang in there!

Second set of free COVID tests being offered.


#811

So both my daughters and my grandchildren all have Covid now it seems. My sweet little Haven has a 103º temp. None seem really bad now, I hope this all passes quickly.


#812

In our experience it passes in about 24 hours in the little ones. Can be tough on those a little older though. Fingers crossed for them


#813

Yeah the littles are pretty resilient.

I am just a ball of worry about Haven though, with all she went through when she was born. Her lungs and heart had a lot of issues with CHD when she was born and went through open heart surgery when when was 5 days old.


#814

Yeah, that does raise the concern man. My niece had a hole in her heart at birth, similar issues and immune system issues with thyroid. She was fine with covid recently though (she’s 5 now)

Hope things roll OK the same way, latest variants seem to be less aggressive.


#815

Yes, it seems to pass fairly quickly through most. She’s only a year and a half old though, and her Bebop (me) worries about her pretty much all the time.


#816

I tested positive for Covid yesterday; it started as a sore throat and congestion Monday evening, and now aching all over (especially kidneys) and a low fever (99.5 this morning). I’ve been laying down for most of yesterday, and presumably at least all day today.


#817

:disappointed: I’m sorry, Neb. Hope it’ll be easy on you. Just rest up.

Several people at my company in KY and in CA have tested positive this week.


#818

sorry neb! my parents got it twice in a month. they’re feeling a bit better now…taking my dad fishing tomorrow, so he must be doing well.

stay hydrated and rest well neb!


#819

My son got it twice within a 4 week period. We just had friends cancel dinner plans bc they got it (either from a beach trip or their son being in summer school/camp).

Anyone on the board in health care? Curious about their experiences now.


#820

Thanks guys! Sorry to hear @thebalvenie @Ely_Plains your families got it twice in a month! That sounds super frustrating

I’m hanging in there ok; I think the congestion is loosening up. Fever is still around 99. I think the aches are going away. All things considered, it’s not awful in terms of my symptoms; pretty tired most of the time, and random waves of super tired. I slept about 11 hrs last night which I think was good.


#821

I had Covid back in the winter. Afterward I noticed a few patches of dry itchy skin. Didn’t think much of it. Turned out to be a lingering symptom of Covid. I couldn’t get rid of them and by the end of summer things got really bad. I had a rash over most of my upper body and it ended up infected. I was fortunate to get help quickly and after prescription skin cream, antibiotics and lots of Prednisone I am feeling really good. But I gotta be more careful.
