Day 6: The ‘Cron is Gone December 31, 2021

Posted by geoff in News.

My brief flirtation with COVID-19 has ended – it’s all over but the residual goop-clearing and catch-up power sleeping. I don’t have a particularly formidable immune system (I catch everything) and when I’m infected, it usually settles in my chest for a week. Figured I was COVID’s favorite sort of target.

But this new version was not a problem, barely an inconvenience. Whether it’s due to the wimpiness of the virus, a resurgence in my immune system (hah!), or the two Moderna shots I had (back in April, so…), I don’t know. But my impression is that:

  1. Ordinary protocols that protected people from infection in the past won’t prevent Omicron infection.
  2. Having been infected, Dayquil and Nyquil don’t help as much as they usually do.
  3. The fever bounces around quite a bit.
  4. Lasts about 5 days
  5. All in all, it was a minor inconvenience.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Geoff!

Sorry you caught omicron, and glad to hear it wasn’t more serious. My younger daughter tested positive on 12/31 and has mild flu symptoms. The rest us are negative so far but we kinda wish we were all positive, so we could quarantine together and maybe end up with that immunity.

On a side note…watched Soylent Green last night for the first time in decades. I didn’t remember that it takes place in 2022! (when the population of NYC has reached 40 million)…felt like a documentary 😃

Glad you’re feeling better Geoff! Hopefully you got permanent natural immunity now.

I felt like I was over it when I could walk up a couple flights of stairs without feeling like I was dying. But that was pre-Omicron. Maybe your cardiovasculars will bounce back more quickly. Glad you’re on the mend.

One of our friends got the coof. 57 year old lady. She has been on vit D and zinc for quite a while. We gave her some of our HCQ and NAC as soon as she started feeling poorly. She is all better, well inside 24 hours.
