Prayers for our tb2k family and their families.... :rs:

virus's, mononucleosis, and strep running rampant in my AO. I've had Grandson to urgent care 2 times thinking he had strep. Negative strep, negative covid....so we assume it's a virus. He had symptoms for about 3 weeks. Cough and sinus drainage.

I buy produce from a long time friend who belongs to a mennonite community. She said half of their congregation got covid, no deaths, no meds, no hospitilizations.

How I hate the capriciousness of this damn virus.
My relative who just died of covid and his wife, who now fights her own battle with Covid, exposed several family members along the way. We shall see how Capricious Covid plays out in the family and their contacts.

I've heard of it running through families taking out several along the way. Now I'm seeing it play out too close to home. A funeral might be a really bad idea.

Dad (OldGringo) is still on a vent, his peep score went from 24 to 10, O2 on vent went from 100% to 50%, He is off all pressors (heart meds) and no longer Covid pos. He still has a central line and is in ICU. Once peep goes below 8 then we try to extubate. Going in right direction but everything at this point is an uphill battle.

This case is not a blood related relative to me but is a friend that owns a local HVAC, plumbing and electrical supply house.

He put up a Lexan barrier the full length of his business counter to isolate himself and employees from customers doing business. Similar to a bank teller window but about ten feet long.

He and his wife were both vaxxed. He had the single shot vaxx. (J and J?)

He caught covid and is presently in a hospital.

Breakthrough covid is becoming very common.

Mom tested positive today. She had symptoms yesterday and the day before but looks and feels good today. She had asked me to bring her a dose of Ivermectin to the old people home last week and she took it on Saturday. I gave her a next dose today after the test, and took some myself just for precaution.
She's an impressively tough 87 year old.

How long on the vent?

Thanks to everyone for their prayers.

The widow who is still sick with covid is okay for now. More family members and friends, those who had contact with the widow and her husband before he died of covid, have tested positive. They are younger, unvaxxed, and having only mild symptoms. The one close contact who was vaccinated has had no symptoms.

Prayers for all who are fighting this Chinese plague.

My distant cousin lost her mom today due to C19. She was in her early sixties, unvaccinated. She had flown up from Florida to Ohio to stay with my cousin. She first presented with no taste or smell, she did have high blood pressure. She had a psychotic break six days ago and a silver alert went out and she was located two states away in the midst of a severe mental break down and was running a temperature. This is our third family loss due to C19.

I keep posting about a simple preventive. Mix Saline nose spray m(Walmart) with 50 ppm ultra silver (Amazon) 50/50. Spray each nostril 3 times in morning and night. This will coat the sinus lining and prevent Covid from attaching.. NO ONE HAS REPORTED GETTING COVID THAT HAS USED THIS METHOD. My whole family used this, except for my grandson. Who got covid. I hope he is enjoying his time off.
