My oldest son Steven just called me to let me know he has tested positive for Covid.  Please say a prayer for him.

Thank you,
Jerry

    Prayers sent. Hopefully he is one of those that don't get any symptoms.
    Refusing to conform to the left wing mantra of political correctness by insisting on telling the truth does not make you a loud mouth.

    thanks, all.  He told me he feels like crap and is having some difficulty breathing, so it may be tough sledding for him.

    Prayers sent, as somebody who was humbled by Covid, its no joke for some of us.  A certain chiropractor some of might know recommends high levels of zinc, vitamins c and d.  My wife was doing the high levels of these and her symptoms were minor compared to mine.  Have him get a blood oxygen meter and monitor his O2 levels.

    Definitely praying. My wife has 4 symptoms and is getting testing tomorrow morning. Hers are 4 of the "minor" ones, so hopefully it's just the flu.

    The pulmonary symptoms are more scary. I hope he pulls through.

    Hope your boy kicks Covid butt and pulls right out of it. 

    I know a lot of folks who have had it now, including my sister and hunting buddy. Only thing I know is, everyone is different. My sister didn’t have too much of a problem with it. My hunting buddy had 2 days that were bad, but said after that it was like someone flipped a switch... gone.. back to normal. His brother struggled with it at the same time, but his sister in law tested positive and never knew she had it. 

    The folks who get the respiratory version have the harder time. My sister never did. Just sinus, lost taste and smell and otherwise was just very tired for a few days. 

    Hope your boy is ok. Feel free to pm me if you feel like BSing. I’ve been working around that crap since the beginning. No clue how I haven’t got it yet.

    Prayers for him from us. Hopefully won't be any more then I have had. Runny nose and sinus pressure, about like a head cold. I did tire out easy but seem to be over that now, lasted about a week.

    Prayers for a swift uneventful recovery!  I just fund out my future SIL got it a few weeks back.  He didn't;t say anything to us because he didn't;t want to worry us but he got through it in a few days of feeling crappy.  He did say it takes weeks to get back to 100%.  My niece had pretty much the same experience.  Hopefully your son's Covid experience will be the same or better!

    I hope he is doing well. My wife tested negative. I think her symptoms had more to do with getting diagnosed with diabetes and the rapid change of diet.

    I talked to him a day or two ago, and he he's been holding steady.  It still hurts when he takes a breath, though.

    Ongoing prayers.  At least he's holding steady ground!
