Thread: COVID-19 Minus the Politics

  1. Default

    Happened to my mom almost a year ago. Thankfully we could be there. That is very sad. my mom passed massive brain bleed. I can't imagine not being able to be there with them even if they don't really know you are there.

She recovered but says she only started feeling close to 100% a couple days ago. She isn't cleared to go back to work yet, and says it is "not just a flu".

    My brother and his family managed to not get infected. They had been visiting my sister prior to her getting diagnosed, riding in the same car, hugging, etc. She held their baby for a while, too, and thought the cough she had was just allergies. Kind of a miracle.

    I'm so sorry Beld- I can't begin to imagine what that was like.

    My condolences again, my friend.

    Just found out my mom's husband has COVID. They took him into the hospital Thursday with a high fever and really low oxygen levels. He had literally tested negative on the 10th, but the hospital found he had the antibodies already. They diagnosed him with pneumonia, but the COVID test came back positive. He's a double transplant recipient on immunosuppressants who is in and out of the hospital all the time. This has been my biggest COVID nightmare scenario.

    They diagnosed my mom with bronchitis, and she's been at home in bed freaking out. She was also negative on the 10th but negative on the antibodies. They did re-test her, but we still don't have results. My family has a couple of immune disorders running around, and some of us have a hard time making antibodies so antibody tests aren't always very accurate for us. We get sick a lot, especially from viral stuff. That makes me really worried for her.

    Anyway, freaking out.

    Writing this down helps.

    Hope everyone's families are doing okay.

    And if nothing else- this is just a reminder that a negative test today isn't protection against an infection tomorrow.

    So, it is common to have false negatives when symptoms are first detected. They'll generally tell you to return in 48 hours if symptoms persist.

    They had no symptoms on the 10th. They didn't kick in until like 3 days ago, then suddenly mom has bronchitis and her husband had pneumonia.

    The tough part is they told us it wasn't COVID yesterday, and then they got the tests back today and say "ooops".

    They're in AZ too. Things are so bad there. I'm just hoping she doesn't end up on the hospital and that he does end up coming home from the hospital.

    Found out today my 94 year old Granny tested positive today while locked down in her assisted living facility. She's a pretty tough lady, but at 94, all we can do is hope for the best.

    She can pull right through it. My father in law is in an assisted living facility and got it last month. He pulled right through and I hope she will too.
