Ironically, she was basically symptom free (little lingering stuff, but aches and pains, fever, sore throat all gone) by the time she got her results. Had her isolated in one room. Moving her to our master bedroom so she can have a tv and private bathroom and I am moving into my son's room since he is away at college. I am getting tested tomorrow. Ugh.
    So sorry to hear that. Be safe and Positive waves being sent your way.

    Thanks for the thoughts... we really appreciate it. We will hopefully have test results back on Wednesday. She is basically down to sniffles and basically feels normal and is isolated in our master suite. We moved her up there so she could have her own bathroom and a tv. She is actually upstairs right now teaching. She moved some stuff around so she didn't have to sit in bed while working and eating. So far my daughter and I have felt fine. My wife is in isolation until the 29th. If my daughter and I come back negative we are cleared on the 31st. Although my work is going to require me to have another week remote to play it safe. So long as I come back negative, I don't mind. I get more work done at home than I do at work.

    Actually got my test results back in a day... I regretfully am positive too. To date... I haven't felt much of anything different. I will say, I did feel aches in my shoulder and neck Sunday and Monday. I was attributing that to my son's bed being different than mine. I haven't and still don't have a fever. Since my wife has/had been isolated since Friday... I had to have been infected Wednesday or Thursday... especially for it to show up in the test on Sunday. Good note is my daughter was negative. So now both my wife and I are in our room. I am going to another room to work but I am masked at all times there (I wouldn't be able to maintain my work level on just my laptop). Another good note... those aches and pains... gone this morning. My shoulder hurts... but that is because I have a torn labrum... I really need to get back to PT. I am praying that this is all I am going to get. Again... thanks to my foo family for the thoughts and prayers.

    Sorry to hear that you tested positive but glad that you are largely asymptomatic. I don't think I have been exposed, certainly haven't felt any more aches and pains than normal.
    I have been trying to get the vaccine. It is by appointment only and I was told that, since the next round starts tomorrow (Wednesday) I have to call at 7:30 A.M. and try to get through, to maybe be able to get an appointment. I will do so, but it's frustrating as all get out.

    Wow.

    It sounds like you are lucky.

    I haven't had it but I live on the moon. And it still scares me. We're guaranteed nothing.

    I think the only traditional rock bands post-2000 that put out great new music is limited to Green Day, the White Stripes, and Blink-182

    Fight me.

    I also think the best bands are those that wrote their best music in their mid-20s/early 30s, and spent the next 20 yrs mastering how to play every note of their music.

    I didn't realize Green Day released an album last year... American Idiot is currently in my car CD player.

    It's weird hearing the newly released Tom Petty song on the radio, I like it, but it's just weird since it's posthumous.

    Sorry to hear you both tested positive, I hope your wife's symptoms continue to go away more each day and that you keep being asymptomatic.

    ask your Docs about HCQ....seems to be new data available

    Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an antimalarial/anti-inflammatory drug that impairs endosomal transfer of virions within human cells. HCQ is also a zinc ionophore that conveys zinc intracellularly to block the SARS-CoV-2 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, which is the core enzyme of the virus replication.21 The currently completed retrospective studies and randomized trials have generally shown these findings: 1) when started late in the hospital course and for short durations of time, antimalarials appear to be ineffective, 2) when started earlier in the hospital course, for progressively longer durations and in outpatients, antimalarials may reduce the progression of disease, prevent hospitalization, and are associated with reduced mortality.

    From what I am reading, only useful in hospitalization situations. Not sure, being relatively asymptomatic, that it is even needed for me.

    That discussion deserves a thread unto itself. I’ll start one.

    I went skiing on Thursday and missed the game. I planned on watching it on DVR when I got home. Game did not record. So disappointed.

    My parents got their 1st shot of the vaccines today. It's been insane trying to find places with appointments open for people in 1a. Everything is online and it's a wild goose chase trying to guess which pharmacy location might have an appointment, I've been trying to help them but hadn't had any success. Thursday they finally opened a phone line for seniors to call, for the first hour the line wasn't working, then apparently it got hacked (my cousin was trying to make appointments for his mom and aunt and got through twice to two different hackers wanting CC information). My mom finally got through on her Tracfone, always got a busy signal with the home phone, and the hold was so long she almost ran out of preloaded minutes, but luckily someone picked up and they got appointments for today. Huge weight off our chests, hopefully scheduling is easier and more streamlined when our turn comes.

    We got our jabs today. The county teamed with one of the local hospital owning medical organizations to put on a large drive through event. They have been ongoing for a few weeks now. The state and county each maintain a web page listing most if not all outlets where vaccines may be obtained. Since we had signed up ahead of time, the county sent an email notice the day before the page for sign up would open. The signup was on line and was filled within probably 20 minutes. We had tried a couple of days earlier and were not successful. After analyzing where our attack could be streamlined we got times fairly soon.

    It was a drive through event. At some there are reports of wait times of 1-3 hours. We got there about a half hour early, were admitted without comment and were done by the actual time of our appointment. No reactions noticed.

    Glad to hear you got your Fauci Ouchie! Everything I have heard about the actual administration of vaccines locally is that the "boots on the ground" are doing an amazing and efficient job...it's the scheduling aspect that has been awful and needs to be streamlined. There was a big clinic for seniors held at PNC park, 2500 were vaccinated in a day, a local pharmacy has also been doing clinics and vaccinating 2000 per day, but their website crashes and they're putting their own money into upgrading for something they'll likely not have to deal with long term (they're also footing the bill for the special freezers to store it). I just wish the healthcare/insurance scheduling and phone lines that are already in existence were being used for booking rather than seniors needing to look a dozen different places and book their appointments online (especially since some don't even have internet), that's a wild goose chase. But yes, the nurses, pharmacists, and technicians who are giving the shots are doing an amazingly efficient job of getting people in and out quickly and safely

    One Moderna jab under my belt. 3/12 can't come soon enough for my second.

    I got my second pfizer shot on Thursday. No issues. Arm hurt a lot more after first. Arm only hurt a day on the second.

    Will, I hope you get good news on your eyes.

    Thanks but just finding out what was happening is good news. I am optimistic so expect that it will be two easy surgeries, a month apart, and I will be back to having 20/20 again.

    Yesterday was sunny for a change and in the 30s after a bitter and snowy week. The boys were able to sled ride and I started some tomato and pepper seeds for our garden. I planted some lettuce and spinach too. I made a bunch of "greenhouses" from plastic takeout containers. Just having the sunshine out for a day was enough to make me think about summer!
