If I happen to contract Covid again and die I just want everyone to know I knew the risks involved in continuing to live my life unafraid. I’ve already had Covid. My dad had Covid. My step mom had Covid. We know the risks. We aren’t scared. Someone dies of cardiovascular disease every 37 seconds in the US yet the Burger King drive thru was wrapped around the building when I went for lunch earlier. And man was that double whopper good!

Looks like most schools are now shutting down. Watauga closed additional 9 weeks no questions asked. Remote only. More to come.

Question not trying to make it political if in it is and not trying to disrespect John Lewis at all. At the funeral today from photographs I saw the people had on mask but they didn’t seem to have much social distancing going on in the church and from what I’ve read it’s not just mask that slow the spread but social distancing and mask combined. So wouldn’t this mean that they were violating some of their own rules their advocating for? Ik churches that have stricter guidelines in place than what was going on at the funeral today. As I said before no disrespect to John Lewis he was a great man.

Well, I will be taking a COVID test soon for the LPN program. May even take an antibodies test later as well.

Honestly, by the way I've felt for several months outside of when I put on a tin foil hat for a bit, I'd say both would be negative but who the heck knows.

The interesting thing that I've heard is that if you're asymptomatic, they don't make you stay away from clinicals at least in Augusta. Not sure how others would feel about that.

Well, it's been 10 days since I posted about what my mom was dealing with and she is still battling a stomach problem a little. She had to make my dad get up 4 times over last night (and I heard one of the times very early in the morning) to go to the regular bathroom instead of the porta potty near the bed. (and despite that, feels well enough, and I suppose stubborn enough, to not call off traveling to SW NC tomorrow, she just might not eat much)

Honestly, it probably isn't COVID but stomach problems usually don't last 2ish weeks. 🙃 Although it has a long time to get there, if it gets to where she's having stomach problems for months like she had respiratory problems in 2017 for months, it will be something.

Has she recently gone through a heavy dose of antibiotics? If she has it could be Cdiff. When I had it it was around 25 to 30 trips to the bathroom a day.
