Now Beth has tested positive. Given the covid protocols we may not be able to say goodbye to Diana and Peter this weekend. I've thought about going to the hotel and at least waving to them in the parking lot, but we'll see. The plan is to visit for Christmas so we'll have that to look forward to.
So far her symptoms have been mild. She lives downstairs from us so we're rarely in contact with her. She has to come up to use the bathroom so we've closed the door that leads to the hallway with our bedroom and bathroom and she's using the other one. We haven't heard much coughing and can still sometimes hear her laughing at whatever she's watching on TV.
The worst part is the congestion. That's been our main symptom. No fevers, no headaches... just severe congestion. After trying everything (antihistamines, steam, vicks, sleeping sitting up...) I took an allergy pill. Cleared it up within a day! I could breathe again, I could sleep in my bed and function during the day. So that's one of the first things I gave her. So far so good.
Chuck sent this picture this morning. He took it from the front of his bus while driving in downtown Seattle.
We live about 20 minutes north and even though it's been snowing here all morning, nothing is sticking.
Won't be doing too much around here today. I sure am enjoying these slow quiet days though. Giving me a glimpse of retirement! 💖 I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Stay healthy!
