    Went in for lab work today, and am seeing the doctor tomorrow arvo (see? I’m delirious and speaking Aussie!) Right now my temp is 100° dead. But apart from a bit less energy and the fever, I don’t have any other real symptoms of anything. Weird.

    my condolences John.

    At this moment in time i am the only one left on my department at work who hasn't tested positive for covid. Everyone in the factory gets tested daily before starting work and we've had no new infections after tuesday last week. It is rather busy doing all the work by yourself, but i haven't slept this well in years which is a positive coming home from work exhausted.
    2 of my coworkers did phone in saying they felt better but were told not to come in untill next week just in case.

    Well, hell. Test results did not indicate anything amiss, and the good doctor was baffled. So he retested for COVID, going on the presumption that it might be a breakthrough infection, but with extremely mild symptoms. If there’s no change or improvement, next week more tests will be run and more swabs stuck up where swabs should not be.

    Thanks. I am fortunate enough to have a relatively good immune system (i think). I can't even recall the last time i had the flu. That was probably about 20 years ago. There hasn't been anyone at work left to infect me at work. Other than work i haven't really gone out much over the last one and a half year, so i think the chances of me getting covid are relatively slim at the moment.
    I'm just like garden weeds, they don't get rid of me that easily haha.

    Speaking of garden weeds, I mowed yesterday as things were starting to look untidy and it’s gonna rain over the weekend, so I got in first. I also planted a white Mulberry tree that our granddaughter Kaela gave us with a smile, remembering her as a child with red face and hands (juice) from plundering the tree we had before.

    We are both heading into town today now restrictions have relaxed somewhat but going early as everyone will be in there after weeks of no shopping. It will be nice leaving the property!

    I feel better today than yesterday, but yesterday was really the first time that I felt like I was ill. Still running 99.5° or thereabout, and I should get the results from test #2 tomorrow.

    And the results are in and they are negative. So what’s causing the fever? Unless it abates on its own, next Wednesday he’ll start doing various panels looking for the cause.
