My son's infant grandbaby caught the infant type of covid. Since no one in the household is sick, and, like you, they hand sanitize and wear masks, they figure they brought the germ home on their clothing.
I'm making Joe throw his clothes in the dryer everyday since he's back at his adult daycare type program. But we do that everyday because of the little bed buddies that hitchhike anyway.

I just read your test was positive. Sorry. Please take care of yourself. Will you be able to get any help so you can have fluids and stuff?💕
i don’t know. For next couple week no one allowed in house. Unless it’s an emergency and I need a doctor or paramedic (touch wood I wont)
I have a mini fridge in my room. I always keep bottled water in so hopefully I should be ok. I’ve slept on and off vicks is helping with chest I’ve smothered myself in it from head to toe.

Two old home remedies I use for couphing are 1 hot gargle with salt water. Or 2 a mix of apple cider vinegar and raw honey half and half. You can even put some fresh lemon in it. That one you can take by the spoonful. Or gargle with just apple cider vinegar. What ever your stomach can deal with. And the steam and the Vicks or tea tree oil. Keep the humidity not dry not too wet. 40 to 60 percent. Sorry to talk your eyes out.
Thank you I’ll keep it in mind.
I did try the apple cider vinegar and honey and it almost came back up.
but I’ll try again tomorrow with a bit of lemon in it. Think I have some in fridge not sure

Oh no sweetie. I am so sorry. But please rest and take care of yourself. Don't over do it. This is not something you should take lightly, so don't push yourself too hard. Still do those vicks Rubs etc, they will help open up your chest and help with breathing. Big virtual healing hugs are on their way.
I’ve done nothing but sleep.
mom going on shower and back to bed. Can’t be bothered to eat. Eyes feel heavy. u have an inhaler aswell to help open up the lungs. But I’m still using vicks

Maybe leave it at your door. So you'll eat soup or broth or something to keep you going. I hope you'll get a little bit of help. So your energy can go on things I know you are going to not give up on.😏

Just a little something for you. Kahli finishing off her cricket. And by the looks of it she likes crickets. Sorry quality is very bad but it is hard taking a video in the dark. I took another where I filmed her grabbing the cricket and eating it, but that came out even worse as I was not too successful in holding the camera and the tweezers at the same and try to film in the dark.

Anyway I hope you can see her relatively clearly.

It can also be just honey and lemon. The vinegar gives it a bit of a extra but so will a salt gargle. I'm going to shut up so you can rest. Get better so we can play.

Checo cheese is Machego according to the microphone of my iPhone and not proofed as I am lazy. As you know it is really nummy cheese made with sheep’s milk. I LOVE my 🧀!!!
I loved goat yogurt but want to try goat cheese. I've never tried sheep cheese. I'm sure I'd probably like it. I love lamb even though it's fatty. I usually can't eat food that's high in fat but lamb doesn't bother me.🙂

I've decided against it. I took the computer to the repair shop and when it comes back I'm going to invest in Malware Bytes.
Check out the free malware bug zapper called comodo. It was recommended to me during a cyber course a few years ago. Seems to work. They have a free version & an upgraded version (fee). We use the free version. No issues, no bugs or viruses.

Try to eat as much as you can as Cathie said soup and broth is good. Plenty of fluids, hope you feel much better soon!

I'm glad you've got us right now, even if many of us are on the other side of the pond. Sending warm thoughts (or maybe cooling thoughts, since you're running a fever) from a distance.

I'll be glad when you're feeling better and have the kids back underfoot again.

I’ve had to tell kids they can’t come home for couple week due to me being unwell. I’ve had Chloe in tears. But I’ve reassured her no matter what she’s home in couple week.
I glad I have you all too. And I can’t thank you enough 🤗🤗
