Well, after all this time, we have finally gotten covid. Our home rapid tests showed it yesterday morning (I took one Saturday too, but it was negative). It's like a cold for me, but much less severe, for example, than the cold I had last November that became a sinus infection. Mostly fatigue and post-nasal drip, which is now causing some coughing. DH's symptoms are different and stronger - fevers, chills, body aches, fatigue. But we're resting, so hopefully we will recover quickly. DD may have it because she complained of a slight sore throat, but now she seems fine.

Diana, DH's appointment is a general doctor appointment, but the doctor discusses every issue, so hopefully they will discuss sleep.

Cynthia, glad to hear the concert went well!

Lynn, I hope the packing goes smoothly and is not too stressful.

Good Morning, Everyone!

Cheryl Praying for a quick recovery for you and family.

A lot of people we know have covid right now. DH and his friend were sick with "allergies" last month. After a couple of weeks we did a home covid test, negative. Went to the outpatient ER place, negative for covid and flu. They prescribed a nose spray and chalked it up to allergies. The next week he felt worse, home covid test again, negative. Off to the outpatient ER, covid and flu negative. Chalked it up to sinus infection. Prescribed antibiotics, another nose spray and mucinex. Both of them still don't have full smell or taste back and still have minor symptoms.

Steps from yesterday: 7,885

Have a Blessed day and stay safe and healthy. Have a great start to your week!

Cheryl,sorry you're sick. Your symptoms sound like what I experienced. Don't fight the fatigue, sleep whenever you can. I don't know what if anything your DH can do; is medicine available. I hope you both feel better soon.

Check-in: the pretzel sections of P57 Classic and Pop Physique Hardcore.

Well, I probably worked harder than I should have yesterday because I cooked pasta, among other things. I wanted to make sure we had food to eat. The symptoms continued until late this afternoon/early evening (I am in a much later time zone and it's night here now), and over the past few hours I have felt the fatigue lifting and my energy returning.

I am still coughing some, but the sickness is past its lowest point. DH also feels like he is on the upswing, although he is still dealing with heavier sickness than me. So about two days or less fort the worst of it. And DH has an autoimmune disease. Not too bad. We'll see how long it takes for the symptoms to go away completely. The good thing is my body is developing antibodies to fight off versions of this and other viruses. The vaccines can only do so much, so this just adds. Still taking all the vitamins.

Diana, I think people in the U.S. sometimes have a harder time finding out, due to lack of accurate, affordable tests available. My sister said the at-home tests here in Europe were more accurate than the ones in the States. Not sure where she got that information. But Porto still has testing tents up around the city (fewer locations now) and labs where people can get free antigen tests. It's now two free/month but it was four. And at-home tests are less than $3, so we have a bunch sitting on a shelf.

Looking forward to getting completely better!

Check-in: 4 mile hike at Pt. Lobos state park. Of course I realize that this is less than Cheryl walks on a normal day, but as I've heard some exercise instructor say, don't compare yourself to others. And I might take a nap.
