bad cold. All things considered he's pretty lucky given his age and medical conditions. Hope you feel better soon. So far I haven't gotten it and I had a crazy idea in my head involving the amino acid supplement L-lysine. I take it when I start with a herpes outbreak and it clears it right up and just before my husband got sick, I had taken it for 3 or 4 days to ward off herpes. Given herpes is also a virus, I got to wondering and googled L-lysine and Covid and, to my surprise, found there had actually been studies done that indicated it was promising in warding off an infection of Covid. Maybe it saved me.
