Days one and two of Corona bug

Woke up early yesterday morning (Monday) and felt slightly feverish - it was 100.1. I'd had a slight cough for a few days but had seen doc earlier last week and he thought it was allergies. Got the rapid test at noon and came back positive - damn. Doc said quarantine for 10 days but call them if it started changing. Fever normal all day yesterday. Slight cough last night.

I was able to slept well. This morning (Tues) no fever or symptoms other than minor cough hanging on. Started taking zinc, C, D3 and NAC today.

Spent the day in the shop finishing one knife project and starting the next.





No fever this afternoon/evening, not much of a cough, very minor runny nose. Updates tomorrow. Food tastes normal and my dog needs a bath.

Your age? Doesn't sound as serious (so far) as the press wpuld like us to believe.
Thanks for keeping us updated, and may the symptoms remain minor until the virus leaves you.

(edit) Beautiful knife work!

In may, my mother started having symptoms and tested positive. Her doc urged me to get tested as well. I tested positive and never noticed symptoms (other than the stir crazy and financial drain of not leaving home for 2 weeks).
She recovered without a problem....until August. She started having weird symptoms and ended up in a cardiac care unit for 2 weeks, testing positive and negative intermittently. Still not out of the woods, but a lot better.

Its weird how some people can be basically asymptomatic while others get hammered. I credit the absolutely absurd amounts of nicotine and caffeine I out in my body.

Bacote and cocobolo..both woods used by cue makers. I have a cocobolo "merry widow"
(no inlay work on the butt or forearm, just the well finished wood. Linen wrap.) made by Jacoby cues.

Often find myself just staring at the beautiful color and grain...

Take care of yourself and stay well. I've been under the weather the last couple days, feels like the plain old allergies/cold/flu but I might get tested tomorrow. Covid is extremely rampant in the U.S. right now, in cities and rural areas alike.

Hopefully it is losing strength as time goes by, like most viruses behave. Get better soon.

Went through it a couple weeks ago. Ugly cold. But not the end of the world.

Paul, from the beginning, it has really varied widely in terms of how sick people get, (or if they even get sick at all). Seems to really depend on how big of a dose you get which is why so many health care workers got seriously ill and/or died.

I have 3 cousins, an aunt and a sister who all got it earlier in the year and got pretty sick for quite a while. Other people barely get sick at all. Let's hope that expat is one of the later.

First of all I was going to say "Put the knife away, it's not the answer."

Cool knife build. Beauty and functionality.

Wow, good health and/or genetics. And good luck with the rest of the recovery.

Glad you’re in the mend!

What are symptoms of COVID? Seems like a lot of people are coming down with coughs, runny nose, headache, sore throat, etc. Myself included.

Take care of yourself & hope you don't end up with complications down the line. The longer this stuff hangs around, the more concerned (sort of) I become. I'm also wishing the rest of you the best of luck with respect to this virus.

Hope it stays mild for you. I had a fever for two days, got up to 102.5 for a bit. Dad was in the hospital for four days. Friend of the family lost his wife to it. Some people have issues for months and others don't notice a thing.

Joe, hope your mom comes out of it in good shape too.

Thanks for the kind words!

Day 3 the cough mostly gone and replaced by minor congestion and runny nose. Seems to be a very slight fog like a cold or flu but no fever.

The good news - my brother brought by cookies, soup and ice cream!

7 more days of quarantine unless something goes off track.

I finished a second knife project this morning. Need to get some more blanks. Maybe a Damascus hunter or skinner will be next.
