As Real as it Gets - Positive COVID Test

Post by Species8472 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 9:12 pm

My wife, daughter and grand daughter (who both live with us). Just got positive diagnosis for COVID. No point hiding in the bush now. They all became sick last Wednesday. Grand daughter who is 3 seems like she has a mild cold and it is hardly slowing her down at all. My daughter who is mid 20s has like a moderate case of the flu but the classic COVID symptoms. Wife who is early 50s has like a really bad flu/pneumonia but with classic COVID symptoms.

After 8 days of living in the same house as all 3 and sleeping in the same bed as my wife i still have no symptoms so i am likely an asymptomatic carrier (pretty sure it's the vitamin W - aka whiskey that protects me).

We have all been self isolating since last Wednesday and fortunately most of my job is maintenance at unmanned stations. We have enough food supplies and fuel for 6 months so no worries in that regard. I also have 8-9000 rounds and a safe full of guns so no worries there either. Also have the 4 xbows and about 100 bolts on the shelf.

Likely brought home by my daughter who is a nurse.

Rest up and take care!
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

Hopefully you remain asymptomatic and the others in your family recover quickly without hospitalization. You're clearly acting responsibly and I hope everyone else does too.

Those were my exact thoughts, also. All at home? Wife on antibiotics From China ?
Praying for the best. It’ll be good to be on the other side of this.
