Probably not

I ran a fever all night but it broke in the morning. After that my symptoms looked more like a gastro intestinal thing. The good news is that my breathing is fine.

If my condition takes a turn for the worse I will definitely seek medical attention. My kids kinda freaked out. My middle daughter, using personal connections, found out how I could get a test if I needed one. Right now, since this is looking more like something else, it’s best that the test go to people who really need it.

Here’s the thing, a few days ago my lovely wife had similar symptoms. We didn’t think too much of it because she gets the exact same sensations when her fibromyalgia flares up. In retrospect she probably had what I’m dealing with now. She felt pretty close to normal in three days.

Don’t want to freak anybody out, but I don’t want to hide anything either. Thank you all for your concern.

    1. Must be working as I'm feeling pretty good this morning. Still no fever and my guts have settled down.

  2. Good to hear. Hope you mend quick. Keep calling it straight.

    1. It's easy to panic a bit, in the age of the pandemic.

  3. Chances you got it are real low. You have been isolated for two weeks and Coos county has only one case so far.

    1. Two things bothered me. An Amazon shipment I got went through a facility that was later found to be contaminated. I'm so isolated that I wonder how I got whatever it is that I got.

      Here in Coos county we are only half joking talk about the "Granite Curtain." Lots of stuff never makes it over the mountains.
