Yeah I can't imagine the stress for those with younger kids right now, especially when some states/counties are pushing for all back to school, when most are not of age to be vaccinated.

Mine are 23 and almost 21, moved out, headstrong and independent, and neither wanted to move back in during the pandemic, the younger got fully vaccinated though, the older was more stubborn but finally is.

But the older is about as idiotic in his practices as the in-laws....

But anyway, here's hoping you and yours remain safe and healthy!

Mine are 4 and 6, and in school. It is... not ideal. Tuesday morning, the younger had croup, which the older never did, so we were unfamiliar with it.

I tell you, waking up to her crying, with a horrid croak in her voice and a hacking cough, was stressful af in a pandemic of a respiratory disease.

She was fine by that afternoon. Just a scary morning.

A first cousin of my father-in-law died of complications from covid today. Before the pandemic, my wife and I normally only saw him once or twice a year, but he was a real nice guy.

My son has been sick since Tuesday afternoon, when he had a runny nose and sneezing fits at school. At home he has had an off and on low grade temperature, so we kept him home from school the last two days. Today the school sent an email with a list of covid symptoms that if a child has to stay home for five days. This week my son has had three of the symptoms on the list: fatigue, headaches, and a sore throat (his temperature never quite got high enough to hit the threshold for "fever"). We can't get a hold of covid test so we are just going to keep him home from school tomorrow too, and that way when he returns to school on Monday he will have been out for five days. We are all vaccinated so it is possible we all have had covid and been largely asymptomatic. I did have some unusual sinus drainage Monday and Tuesday this week. I work from home, and this whole week my wife has worked from home. My wife went shopping for groceries this past weekend so we haven't gone anywhere this week.

Well, I guess it's my turn with the Coof. Tested positive yesterday, and currently exhibiting most of the minor symptoms and a few of the less-common ones. No difficulty breathing or anything (beyond a cough and a slightly runny nose), and my mom is a nurse who regularly checks in on me, so things are going well at the moment. Honestly, I'm surprised it took this long; everyone else in my family has already had it months ago.

My son was back to normal over the weekend. My wife gets pool tested at work weekly on Mondays except there were no tests last week. We heard yesterday that her pool all tested negative this week.

Hang in there, buddy. I hope you feel better soon.

Well, that's an experience I'd rather not go through again. The first week was deceptively mild, just flu/cold symptoms and sitting around chafing at quarantine restrictions. At about day five, it kicked into high gear, with a persistent cough, shortness of breath and loss of stamina from even the simplest of physical activities. My appetite was greatly reduced (down to 1/2 - 1/3 normal) and I couldn't even stomach coffee until today. Fortunately, I have two family members who are nurses who told me what to keep an eye on, as well as providing me with a Pulse-02 monitor and educating me as to what to look out for. If it had gotten any worse than it did, I probably would've gone to the hospital. However, today (Day 12) marks a turning point. I'm still weak and still have the cough, but both have reduced to the point where I actually felt normal enough that I was able to go out to breakfast and drink coffee.

So, in conclusion, COVID-19 is an awful product, 10/10 would not recommend.

The forums were eerily quiet without you. I am glad to hear you are on the road to recovery now though!

https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2022/s0328-covid-19-boosters.html

A couple weeks ago, the CDC approved a second covid booster shot for those 50 and over, and I qualify for that now so I got one tonight.

In other news, my mom came home from the hospital tonight. Thankfully her pain is less than when she came home from her back surgery a couple years ago. My step-dad and I had to make the bed and bedroom wheelchair-able and my shot-arm soreness is just now kicking in.

Congrats and good health to your mom. My step-dad had foot surgery today, so he can't walk on that foot for ~3 weeks or so, which means the rest of us are going to have to step in ( Laughing ) and help out.

I see what you did there. I wish him comfort and healing too. My parents live in the next county, and we just got back from spending the whole day there.
