The virus

143 posts in this topic

Yeah all but one person we know personally that have gotten it have had it super super easy.  4 of those folks are people we woulda swore were bound to have a rough go of it due to age and such but nope, they had it easy and we are beyond thankful.  The one person we know that got their butt whooped still never felt the need to go to the ER or anything like that.  Kathleen is doing great and were hoping its more behind us than ahead and she keeps feeling better.  Luke and I are both meh but not stopping long enough to know better.  Gonna lock this place down tighter than JohnC's work for the next couple weeks either way tho! 

@JohnC being more tired than normal was something we all experienced but there are so many things out there that can cause that as well.  Its also amazing how your head can get after you.  Keep an eye on it either way.

Have him give you a hand :D

At this very moment he has a Taurus and a Tbird Nascar Hot Wheel apart and he is, and very successfully mind you, putting them together and bringing them to me to see.  Hes about a month shy of 3.  I should tell him "ok now that you have those finished, come out to my work bench" :lol:

if he's like mine, you'll find a half of a peanut b. sandwich and a sucker stick in there

And it will likely last about as long as the last one!!!!!!!!

So he can rebuild a Taurus before 3 yo?  That's pretty good, but how's he do with an AR platform?  :)

HA.  He will have to cut his teeth on my Colts or maybe my old Remington .22 before going down that road!

This virus business kind of sucks.  I woke up a little sinusy, Saturday (I actually worry more when I don't wake up a little sinusy.), and woke up Sunday with no sense of taste.  After live-streaming our church service, I had to drive to Henderson to get rapid-tested, and it came back positive.  Since then has been a roller coaster.  I felt fine, Sunday. Monday, I felt rough. Yesterday, I felt pretty good again.  And, today, I feel pretty rough again.  All in all, it feels like a cold or a mild flu.  The most irritating thing is no taste.  I think I could eat a dog turd and not know it.

I've been prayin' for you.  I hope you get to at least partially enjoy the time home during Christmas.  (And as long as you have no taste, you should hone your cooking skilz, you've got nothing to lose!)

Hate to hear it.  Kathleen's taste is slightly back as is her smell but she still cant smell poop so I try to send all the messy diapers her way!

Hahahahaha

I've felt fairly decent, today. I even got out and drove around for a bit. It was nice to get out of the house.

Man, that stinks. I hate to hear it.  I lost a good friend to COVID, a few weeks ago.  He was a pretty healthy guy.  In fact, the week before he was put on the ventilator, he and his wife had been camping in the Smokies.  He had been an area pastor and hospital chaplain for years.  After retiring, he would speak at area churches on the ministry of encouragement.  You never saw this man without a smile on his face, and you never left his presence without receiving a word of encouragement.  Bro. Frank was a great guy!

Other than some residual chest congestion and sinus drainage, I'm pretty well back to my normal self.  My taste is coming back, although it's not completely 100%
