My elderly father is in the cardiac care unit with elevated heart enzymes which the doctors attribute to Covid pneumonia. I am almost sure he contracted Covid the weekend before at another hospital when he was being treated for a fall. (I was nearly the only one in he place wearing a mask.)
My slightly less elderly mother is in the bed with relatively minor symptoms. My wife developed Covid symptoms yesterday but she has improved to the point that she is not playing "Komm, süßer Tod" on a loop. I thought I had dodged the bullet when I tested negative on Sunday morning and night. To day, the test strip was brilliant red (I tested twice).
I really had no symptoms in the morning but in the afternoon, I developed a low grade fever, headache and nausea. Tylenol will knock down the fever but there is no relief from the headache and nausea.
Fortunately, my brother and SiL drove in to check on Dad, so it's their turn to care for the elders. (It's almost worth the headache and nausea to get a break.)
At least in southern Arkansas, Covid is back. The hospitals are filing up and buying test kits requires a treasure hunt.
Everyone mask up and be careful out there.
