COVID
Hello All,

Just so you are aware as to why I haven't posted or visited. We went to Norfolk last Friday (2nd July), staying until Wednesday. Went to the coast on Saturday, heavy duty gardening for Liz om Sunday, then out for a lovely meal in Cringleford on Sunday evening. It was a bit duller but still warm on Monday, so we used our bus passes, so useful, to go into Norwich on Monday. We wore masks, as did most of the older population on the bus. Had a good walk through the quiet city, stopping for cold drinks ouside, then inside a small cafe for lunch; back in time to get James off the school taxi at 3.30.

So far so good. I woke up on Tuesday shivering violently, sneezing and feeling very sick and cold despite the warm weather. I went to bed and stayed there for most of the day. We didn't have a test kit with us and Liz was working on the south coast. She beelined back on Wedenesday morning. Liz gave me a Covid test, but didn't leave long enough for a full result, so it looked negative. Drove home, and I thought it might be hay fever so I took an anthistamine tablet on Wednesday and Thursday - no relief of the symptoms. Thursday a positve result, and then today Adrian, (unsurprisingly) after feeling a bit off colour, tested positive.

He is sitting out doors in the hot sun, and I am reading books inside. Feeling a tad better today, not suffering a high temperature, and the runny nose and eyes aren't so bad. The latest news from out local surgery is stricly NO VISITING, as the nurses are off sick and the surgery is short staffed. Still experiencing the odd shivering fit, but I think I'll be able to sleep better tonight, and sufficiently fine to vist you all.

Take care and stay well all off you.

Amelia

Sorry to hear about this Amelia.........but also good to hear that you have relatively mild symptoms, compared to earlier Covid infections.

I hope you're both well on the road to recovery by the time you read this :-)

I'm sorry to read this dear LGM and hope that Adrian and you rapidly recover. Isobel had it a couple of weeks ago, but is fine again now, somehow I avoided it.

Still testing positive today. I'm amazed that I've succumbed to the disease, as I've had 2 Pfeizer jabs and booster on top of that. C'est la vie.. Perhaps the chemo has messed about with my my ability to combat things. Still not feeling up to scratch by a long way. :-(((

My immunosuppressed sister also caught it in spite of being boosted, she had 2 weeks of heavy symptoms. I hope you get over it a bit quicker!

Sorry to read this. After weeks of not bothering with tests I have done a couple in the last week - all negative despite how I felt, so maybe mine is hayfever but it shows how difficult it is to identify now. Hope you are better soon.

Update: Although we have both tested positive for Covid, the symptoms have been totally different. Adrian has had headaches and a loss of voice, I have had symptoms resembling severe hay fever, only a slight headache occasionally, shivering in hot weather, and I have only a limited sense of smell. My hearing has also been further impaired because the eustacian tubes are blocked. But everything is getting better. We'll do further tests on Saturday and hopefully we an go for a coffee in the local cafe. We have also managed a couple of short country walks encountering no-one.

Oh wow! Those are pretty awful symptoms to have, especially your hearing, which must be very worrying.

Glad to hear that things are getting better though :-)
