Did I tell you guys that my wife got Covid back in the spring?  She had mild cold symptoms for 4 days before she got tested positive.  We did not distance at all in those 4 days but neither I nor any of the kids got it.  Covid is a fickle mistress.

My biggest covid flex is still never had a reason to have a test.  I assume possible international travel requirements will soon end that streak.

A kid on my son's football team passed away with covid this weekend. Pretty sad man. 11-year-old kid and he didn't get to see his dad in person for a month, then he died. What a tragedy.

In good covid news, my dad finally got jab 1 this past week.

Wow, what a tragedy.  I am not sure there is a hospital staff that could keep me from seeing my kids but holy crap that is just mind blowingly sad.

Same, I just researched how to even get one yesterday because I'll need it in a month.

This is horrible, I can't even imagine.  Why couldn't he see his dad?  I thought visitor guidelines had been at least slightly relaxed to allow at least some visitation privileges.  That makes me incredibly angry and sad.

I wonder if he went pretty quickly or unexpectedly? I was allowed to see my dad twice over the 2.5 months he was in covid icu. both times were when they were confident he wasn't going to last much longer. not a great call and 5 hour drive to make each time. it's a pretty helpless feeling because you get all suited up with suits, gloves, masks, goggles and then get in there and can barely communicate and it's a short visit because they are just so weak and sick. then you come out and talk with the family and then have nothing else to do but wait.

That sucks sd.  Was that before vaccines?  I thought they had relaxed restrictions over the last several months.

Not letting an 11 year see his dad for over a month while in the hospital is incredibly stupid.

Yes, he came down with Covid almost exactly a year ago.

Ben ji's dad has had the vid for about a week. Fever and bad cough/congestion but doing better the last couple of days.

Parents were planning to leave on a road trip out west on Saturday but that has been delayed now.

Unvaccinated of course.

Surely he's been prophylactically protecting himself against COVID in some humorous way, though, right? Regardless, glad to hear he seems to have made it over the hump.
No horse dewormer or anything crazy that I'm aware of, just years of snake/bee venom to build up his immune system.

Mrs. SSOC just got a message from my sis that she and my brother-in-law have COVID. Last week, my sis sent me a text saying that they had held off on getting the vax "because they were still thinking about having more kids" but since the virus seemed to be here to stay they were now thinking about getting vaccinated. Somehow, they had got the message that vaccines posed risks for pregnancy. I encouraged them to get Moderna asap but now it looks like a moot point. They are younger than me and will probably do fine but these people who have monetized disinformation are hurting actual people and it makes me mad.
