Well, it finally happened. Covid hit our house(s). It started with Linds on NYE She had watched a girlfriends’ baby the Tuesday prior and found out the next day that the baby had Covid. Babies can’t be trusted.
On Monday as the Coach and I were packing up ourselves, preparing to drive from GA to FL we both felt a bit achey and he was complaining of post nasal drip that was causing a bit of an irritated cough. That night, as I tried to sleep, my skin felt like it was on fire and I ached. No fever, just a hot body. Finally A hot body and I didn’t feel well enough to flaunt it, go figure.
The next morning we tested ourselves; I was positive (within 4 minutes of the 15 minute test) and the Coach was negative, but he was having all the symptoms, so we assumed it was a false negative as he’d been in the truck for for 10 hours with my hot body.
We tried our darndest to figure out where we might have got this, but came up blank. For real. My friend Dawn suggested that we might have caught it in a breeze because this version is that contagious.
Tuesday I texted Lolo to see what they were up to and she said: ‘I just went and tested myself for Covid. I feel like garbage.” Actually, she said she felt like Garbo, and I asked if she meant Greta Garbo? She confirmed. She said that 5 people on her shift have been positive in the last week.
We’ve had 10 employees out with it and none of them are picking it up at work, it’s all happening outside of work. (weekends, holidays)
EVERYONE HAS IT
Our water guy (yes, I had to call again this week!) was out with Covid. My electrician was just getting over it. EVERYONE HAS IT.
The Coach was feeling achey for several days, and had more upper respiratory, sinus issues than I did. I feel like I have a really bad head cold after the initial achey day, with headaches and occasionally, I’m just plain exhausted.
In a health competition, I’m actually winning right now.
We were lucky enough to get appointments for the Monoclonal Antibody treatment. It’s free and was advised to us by our family Dr. (Our Dr. also advised, rest, fluids, Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin D)
We had an appointment on Sunday morning. The treatment consisted of four different injections; one in each arm and two in my semi-hot, but fat belly. I was expecting a miracle and that we would sprint out of the office afterwards feeling like a million bucks; it didn’t happen, so that was disappointing.
I think just getting myself ready to leave the house for the injections must have proved to be too much because after we arrived home I was pooped. I thought, I’ll just lay on the couch and take a 20 minute power nap.
Two hours later I woke up not knowing what planet I was living on.
So yay, it worked. 😳
Anyhoo. We are getting through it and the worst of it certainly is over. I picked up groceries curbside and other than that we’ve been hunkered down on the property
compound. We do consider ourselves very lucky that this was a mild variant and that we were able to take the time to BEE home and away from others while we recovered.
How about you? Has this hit your home, ‘hood, office?
Bee careful out there and stay inside if the wind is blowing.
