As of Sunday, fully vaccinated with Pfizer.  Yesterday, a had a sore, arm, headache and low fever.  Today, I'm fine.

I wonder if they'll go back to claiming they're gluten intolerant after this.

We had to take all of our dinners inside during our trip to Monterey--too cold and wet to eat outside, and there wasn't good space in our hotel room to do takeout.  We'll see what happens.

Meanwhile, the chorus N and I are in have just instituted new protocols.  We've had to prove we've been vaccinated, now we have to prove that we've been boosterized too.  They've been asking us to show negative PCR or rapid home tests before concert dress rehearsals, now they're asking for one before the first rehearsal after winter break (so negative tests on 1/5 and 1/21).  I decided to go on leave earlier this month, and now I regret that decision even less.  I don't know if N will be soldiering on.

Received a text last night that our Shabbat lunch host tested positive yesterday. Neither her spouse or kids are showing symptoms. All but the baby are vaccinated/boosted. Sent an email to the school asking what to do as they didn't address this kind of exposure in their most recent protocols and we were told since the boy is vaccinated it's ok to send him to school. Tomorrow we'll all get tested since it's day 5.

It will be a miracle if we get through this month without getting sick (mind you I finally recovered from the flu which ruined my entire December)

The current rules just make no sense given what we know about omicron. Daughter's friend's mom tested positive just before break. Friend is vaxed so not considered a close contact and thus supposed to go to school and not under any obligation to test. They tested her anyway a few times, all rapids negative but PCR last Wednesday was positive. Zero symptoms but still  has to quarantine for 10 days post PCR.

Two close friends are positive. I am starting to feel left out.

Put brakes on this kind of thinking.   You're beginning to sound like them.

Now both kids have tested positive.

It's disheartening when you've done everything you've been advised to do and still find yourselves compromised.    All good thoughts for your family.

Truth or Covid? Ch. 2.

When I was in the ER they came up with my diagnosis (basically, post-Covid pneumonia) and discharged me with an erroneous prescription for amoxicillin.  It's useless against viral pneumonia and contra-indicated for me since I am allergic to penicillin (as I told them upon entry).

I laid low for a few days taking vitals, drinking fluids, using lots of OTC tussin to clean out at least some of my lungs, but I still felt bad.  So my internist got me an IV monoclonal antibody drip (took about 30 minutes).  By the following morning I was noticeably improved although tired.  I am much better now.  I just have an occasional cough which is not very productive.

So, be careful.  If things turn for the worse, get the drip.

gotta cut this out. Its now an endemic virus with actually pretty benign outcomes if you are able to be vaxxed.
