The fever broke last night and is running at my normal 97.7. Still a very mild head congestion but nothing significant in my chest. The cough is 99.9% gone and still no body aches to speak of. The slight mental fog is still there which I liken the same feeling as a head cold.

Again, I understand I've been one of the covid fortunates so far. The only reason I started this thread is to give you guys a day by day report of my experience. IMO, masks are a personal choice, but I always opt wear one when around others because I'm not a rocket surgeon and have no idea what works and what doesn't. It's a courteous thing to do plus I can pretend to be a bandit...

Today looks like a good day to mow the yard/leaves and start a new knife project. This one will be really different!

methinks that you don't understand the mask psychosis ... er, I mean mask story. It goes like this: I wear a mask to protect YOU. This has been the narrative for months. - this idea being that others wear masks so as to not spittle in someone else's eye.

Of course the reality is that this virus spreads even in OCD masked populations.

Seems that the only guard we've had against this virus is our long-evolving immune systems.

I'm still shaking my head in disbelief... porsche930dud's attempt to mask-shame a fellow Pelican for getting the China virus. ..

This virus is tiny. It aerosolizes. It lives for days, if not weeks, on surfaces. No matter how much you visualize your leaky mask saving you, it won't.

porsche930dud, you should thank expat for self quarantining. You should thank him for giving us updates. Keep your insufficient OCD mask psychosis to yourself.

Dr. Island disagrees with Dr. Fauci, I see.

Thanks, Expat, for the reports. Very glad your experience was merciful. Love the knives!

Fauci is a biased clown and a political pawn.
Bought and paid for.

Nice link.

BTW, John Elliott was suffering from pancreatic cancer, more often than not a terminal illness.
But, ACCORDING TO HIS FRIENDS, it was the wuhan flu and NOT the terminal illness that killed him.

and how would you assess your contribution to this thread?

Take your time. Think about what you feel makes comments worthless.

Day 5 evening update - Fever went up to 99.2 once early afternoon but dropped back into mid 98's a short time later. It's been stable since. Head congestion is slightly worse but nothing to report with lungs of chest. I took a nasal decongestant and that helped.

Got the yard mowed, trimmed and blown this morning with no issues. My energy level may be slightly lower than normal but certainly not enough to get in front of the physical activities I want to do.

Tomorrow is either clean garage, patch/paint prep walls inside house or dig out/chop out a stump in back yard. I love a really sharp axe!

Beg borrow or steal a simple little pulse oximeter. One of the most important things you can watch really.

Thank you - they seem to have a good stock. It's supposed to ship overnight and be here early morning. Thanks for the suggestion and massive thank you for the offer.

When you take your readings, leave it on your finger for a minute or two to get the most accurate one. The initial one always seems to be high on me then settles down to reality.
They told me to start being concerned when you get below 90.
You'll get through it.

Glad you seem to be doing well. Weird the way it seems to affect people so differently even when age and health records are the same. Good that you are keeping busy but be careful not to over exert yourself the body needs rest to recover. On a side note my trusty cocobolo nightstick was always my favorite tool to carry when on my foot post. You gave me a great idea on re purposing it.
