    I dunno, I have been home for 3 days from the Iris extravaganza of riding around in busses, having meetings, and dining with 250 people. Didnt come down with the Covid. 3 plane rides as well.

    but i got lucky, no doubt.

Heís been working with his doc and will hopefully be getting a prescription for paxlovid tomorrow.
    Is paxlovid one of the monoÖwhatevers?

    No. Itís the antiviral that supposedly cuts hospitalization by 85%.

    Thank you. So far he's only got a sore throat. Keeping my fingers crossed that that remains the case.

    I hope it's just a sore throat. We had the same thing in our household over Christmas. To our dismay, my DH brought home Omicron ( He is a firefighter/paramedic) It started out with him having a sore throat ... And it went down hill from there..

    Seriously you arenít this stupid are you?

    Edited to add. Sorry. I thought it was Alan making this absurd post. You need to up your troll game. Iím well aware that you really are this stupid.
    It's called - latency period and silent carrier - terms from the real science.

Your concern is touching. So has your son started talking to you again or does he still realize that youíre a bitch and heís better off avoiding you at all costs?
    He's talking to his grandmother again. Did she all of a sudden stop being a bitch after a year? Or was she never one to begin with?

    Now I would imagine in his line of work he wears one of those ineffective talismans over his face. Damn! It's so annoying when magic doesn't work.

    So sorry JP1. I sincerely hope he continues to improve.
    I think you did the right thing to stay home if you had the option. Besides, what if SO needs help? You would be worried sick about him as well as the possible danger to the eight month pregnant woman. It seems odd to me someone that far along would fly and spend a week at a conference. But maybe my kids are right and I'm just old fashioned as they roll their eyes.

    You could ask SO 's MD if the following could help. My MD recommended I do a twice daily sinus wash. Also, no cough Medicine. Lots of hot steamy liquids like tea or broth soups. Tylenol for a fever. I also have a pulse oximeter and took my O2 level and temp every four hours when I was awake the first few days when I had symptoms. But don't take medical advice from an unknown person on the Internet. Always check with your healthcare providers.

    It is heartbreaking to see all the unkindness I have seen In the world and on this forum. Last year I almost died and I had time to think as I was fading in and out in the ER before they stabilized me and during my hospital stay. Is it really worth it to argue about the same stuff for over two years? If all the anger and rage people have could be channeled Into kindness and compassion it would be healthier for everyone.
