    Just My Luck

    So for the most part we have been hiding during this pandemic event...we don't go out to eat, visit with friends - we don't even shop for our own groceries or anything else...Amazon is our friend...

    So we were lucky enough to get our first shot over a week ago (We had to travel in separate cars to appointments at about the same time in different locations). This is really the only time I've been out at all lately - AND GUESS WHAT came down with COVID, verified with a test...starting to get over it now - appears the 1st shot may have helped minimize the sickness duration but now the better half is down and out with same..... hope hers is shortened as well..

    Go figure....picked it up while in line to get the vaccine...oh brother.....

    That’s not what it means.
    Metrics say that masks are effective
    Nothing is 100% foolproof.

    Man, that's some bad luck right there. I just received my second shot (Moderna) today and so far, zero side effects. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

    Here is to a speedy and uneventful recovery for you both.

    Just as an FYI, there are several states reporting "breakthrough" cases in fully vaccinated individuals, including Washington, Idaho, South Carolina, Florida and Minnesota. Remember, the reported vaccine efficacy is NOT based on preventing transmission or symptomatic disease, but rather the severity of the symptoms. There are also sporadic reports of vaccinated individuals that develop CLI, but test negative on rapid antigen testing. Researchers suspect these individuals are actually mounting an exuberant immune response to the vaccine that mimics natural infection.

    Umph! A good friend has beca voluntary study subject as he's caught COVID-19 three times (yes, 3,) in 11 months. For him, antigens seem to make no difference and after the second time he went full recluse except for an emergency dentist visit and BAM! First time was mild for him, second time he described as severe flu and lingered. He's now in isolated medical care and on oxygen but doesn't seem to be not getting worse (or better). He went in last Friday night.

    Wish you a speedy recovery
    It's nature! Everyone is going to get exposed to it at some point unless you go live in a cave the rest of your life.

    Last Nov our college son came down with Covid. The college said to stay home and remote into classes for 2 weeks.

    After two weeks he calls the school and they said he did not need another Covid test to come back to college because he would test positive for up to 90 days after 2 weeks.

    Makes ya wonder how good those metrics really are, doesn't it?

    I'm going through this right now. A coworker tested positive and can go back to work in ten days without a test because he would test positive anyway. Myself, I've tested negative twice in a week and they still will not allow me back to work until 14 days is up. Hes back at work before me!?! Whatever, it's not gonna kill me financially, I'm just shaking my head trying to understand.

    We never really grow up. We just learn how to behave in public.
