He’s not older by much....I am 41 and if I’m being honest not in the best shape being overweight. I’m so sorry your son is suffering long term effects, I hope it gets better with time.@YadaYadaYada In relieved your husband is still doing okay other than the gastro issues. I never heard that about if you have Covid is in stomach the nasal swab will be negative.
My son had it but it was all respiratory. He also ran a fever and slept 22 hours out of 24. I think he is older than you..45..He still has lingering issues with getting winded when he exerts himself.
It’s hard...The rapid tests aren’t that accurate..The nasal swabs when they come back negative aren’t even that accurate. If it’s positive that’s more accurate. My own husband still thinks if he wears a cloth mask he is protected. He’s been working through the whole thing. It’s scary because of my age, etc. I want to go on a deserted island with my family until this gets under control.He’s not older by much....I am 41 and if I’m being honest not in the best shape being overweight.

I’m planning on having a conversation with DH tonight about the upcoming holidays, my SIL (his sister) is planning on visiting and she believes taking a rapid test will be good enough even though her state is on our advisory list. However the rapid tests are not always reliable and she could get a false negative. I casually mentioned this to DH this morning and he said everyone is using the rapid tests Part of me thinks we will be on lockdown anyways but I’m not convinced that would deter her.
How old is your niece @Calliecake? That‘s nice you got to see them.@MamaBee , That’s the BEST news. I’m so happy for you!!! Thank you for sharing this happy news. I’m so glad you get to spend time with the baby and Jackson. The grow and change so much when they are little.
We visited my grandniece and grandnephew last week and social distanced outside. I was closer than 6 feet for a couple minutes. It‘s so much fun to see my little niece interact with her baby brother.
@YadaYadaYada , I understand about your SIL. I have a mom who doesn’t like it when things don’t go her way.
Thanks for the update. I’m sorry you guys are still sick. Do the kids have it too? How are they doing? If they aren’t sick, I hope they are doing ok with both parents sick.@House Cat, thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. Husband is still doing relatively well but he has moments of gastro troubles. I am having a tough time with my stomach, no fever but a small minority of those affected do not get a fever.
Hubby’s employee tested positive yesterday so although I haven’t been tested (or the kids) it’s pretty much a guarantee we have it.
Something interesting I read yesterday is an infected person can have a nasal swab come back negative but a fecal sample come back positive if the infection is in the stomach. Just trying to keep the fluid intake up at this point.
Have any other PS’ers gotten COVID? I have been following along with the threads but I can’t remember.
You‘re so lucky to have them all in your life...I missed holding Noah as a newborn...I love that wobbly stage...Will you hold them? My doctor told me yesterday that Noah’s immune system is stronger now. She also said it would be very unlikely Noah and Jackson could give me Covid. I hope not!@MamaBee , I have seven nieces and three nephews ranging in age from 30 to 18. Three grandnieces 6 years, 20 months, 18 months, and one grandnephew who is 2 months. Another baby is due to arrive next month. I can’t wait!
Thank you for updating us @YadaYadaYada. I’ve been thinking of you and sending healing dust your way. I hope you are all feeling well quickly.
