  1. Well, the first thing to do is to ask for their source/data on those 48,000.
  2. I'm so sorry. We had a bizzare week of what could go wrong did, but nothing compared to yours.
  3. I would like to see test prices come down even more, like dollar store pricing. I think that would help. Even if not totally accurate, if they were mostly accurate, they'd cut spread. And if cheap enough, people could test often. Saliva based even better.
  4. If they are positive, staying home a day or two isn't really enough to prevent spreading it to others.
  5. Lord, have mercy. Cause nothing short of a miracle is going to help that kind of ridiculousness.
  6. Ugh, sorry about the muscle relaxers! You can try a half dose, I've known people that do that, who are sensitive to them. I'm not..they don't make me wobbly at all although they do give me a bit of groggy feeling in the morning. BUT they give me the munchies, and I think I sleep so hard that I end up sore from not moving all night, just in different places than I was sore when I went to bed! (like, I'll take it for my back/hip but wake up with a sore arm because I tucked it under me without moving all night) My doctor asks if I need a refill each time I see him...and a one month bottle lasts me at least 6 months. I only take it when I am desperate and can't sleep without it.
  7. I'll let you know! I ordered some of the KF94 ones mentioned above, and I will order an XL Happy Mask when those are in stock. Poor guy, we joke that he needs a "big and tall" version of sunglasses, hats, etc. And my younger son inherited it. Kid was born with a 15 inch head and at 8 wears an adult hat.
  8. Yeah....maybe that's the Covid brain fog? Sigh. The utter inability to use logic may kill me way before any virus. But I'm still stuck on the "masks can't keep out the virus...but they will suffocate you because air can't get through" thing. I mean, I sometimes say dumb stuff, but as I say it out loud I realize how dumb it is, and apologize and laugh.
  9. Ugh. Is everyone in the house vaccinated? Can you create a negative pressure area in her room at least? Crack a window and blow a fan out of it?
  10. this article was so upsetting....https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/30/us/coronavirus-florida-hospitals.html But these days inside the Covid I.C.U., almost everything is worse. The week before, Ms. Zacharski’s team had lost a 24-year-old mother whose entire family had contracted the coronavirus. The woman, like every other patient in the Covid I.C.U., had been unvaccinated. and Jackson has also admitted some vaccinated people, but almost all have been transplant patients with compromised immune systems. During last week’s visit by a reporter and photographer from The New York Times, none were in the I.C.U.
  11. Not sure if this is the right place, may put it in the vaccine one too...but Florida hit our highest numbers since the start of the pandemic.

  12. Holy Cow! I haven't done anything with it in a while, but was thinking an hour ago I should do an unboxing video for our Bookshark stuff that came. I guess I should 🙂 Thank you for letting me know!
  13. And this is why "masks optional" is not a safe strategy for schools, sunday school, etc!!! Masks like protect OTHERS mostly. I'm so sorry this happened to them. We are now wearing KF94 masks, which fit all of us well except DH whose head is too big. He can wear them, but not if he's going to be speaking much. We have happy masks too, but they are getting old, and the fit isn't as good at the bottom as with the KF94 ones. I'm looking to order him an XL happy mask, or find a KF94 or N95 that fits him. Or he's going places in a full on respirator.
  14. Ugh, yeah. What is that quote? "The good news is, we are only 6 weeks from being able to end the pandemic. The bad news is, we have always been only 6 weeks from being able to end the pandemic."
  15. Yeah, it was very lucky! And it was him who asked for a test - he woke up and couldn't smell anything (I'm thinking when he was brushing his teth he noticed) and texted me from his bedroom saying he needed to test. He stayed in their after that, other than one quick bathroom trip while masked, while DH built his containment zone. Poor kid, we were so busy building it no one realized he hadn't had anything to eat all day! And he felt bad about all the trouble, so didn't mention it. I will say, we had originally planned to go see my parents on Wednesday, and Tuesday night said we should just stay home and get stuff done, I'd visit next week. SO glad we didn't go!
  16. Yeah, we likely will never know. He saw my parents the day before he left on his trip, spent the day with them, and they have both tested negative now, with no symptoms,so that is good news. They are quarantining for the full 10 days plus negative test thing.
  17. Florida's hospitalization is not low. Shands has already had to move people from the North Campus to the main one as they ran out of room. People at other hospitals have told me it is getting bad.
  18. His plane left at 5am on a Wednesday. He got back Tuesday morning at 10:30am after spending the night on the floor of the airport, and went to his room, napped for 2 hours, and went to work. He came home from work at 5:30, had picked up food on the way so just went to his room and ate in there and went to bed. Next morning, so Wednesday morning, 8 days after leaving, he tested positive. I think average for incubation with delta is 4 days, so 8 seems long, but possible. Also, everyone he was with on the trip - sleeping in the same room, eating together in the air B&B, etc has tested negative. They will need to retest, but it seems if he'd caught it before going, he'd have perhaps infected at least one of them and had them test positive. So who knows? Definitely could have been at an airport either way, since he would have taken off his mask to eat or drink I'd guess. He masks at work - they require them of all staff and clients. But it's usually a surgical mask. I did send KF95's with him to wear on the plane, and I know he did because he commented on how it wasn't even bad to sleep in, lol.
  19. Yeah..hospitals here are not "overwhelmed" in that people are dying on stretchers in the parking lot, but they are canceling all any elective procedures or outpatient procedures that are not "time sensitive". Hospitals don't cancel stuff if they are not overwhelmed.
  20. Oh, I'll check. I wear a medium I think, same size as DD11, DS22 wears a large, but the large I got for DH was too small for him.
  21. The travel correlation is interesting - DS22 was also traveling. I'm wondering if it is planes in particular that are a problem, or if it is maybe the stress of travel that is lowering immune system? I mean, heck, DS22 has been here in Florida, which is now at critical levels, and not caught it but went to upstate New York with positivity under 2% and caught it. Crazy!
