COVID Up Close

2 January 2022

I have tried to stay COVID safe, but we had a house guest, a friend of my son, Mike who had been stranded overseas for a year and came back to Brisbane and then to Sydney last Tuesday.  On Thursday he had a cough, so I asked him to Rapid Antigen Test (RAT), and he was positive.  Mike and I were negative, but the separation was minimal.

I was feeling a bit of a sore throat, headache and cough like an early flu and I managed to get another RA Test kit today (Sunday) and got a positive result.  Luckily, I had my 3rd vaccination 10 days ago, which is just long enough for it to start to work, so I am hopeful it will be a mild one.

It is ironic that I have had lots of requests to go back into the hospital workforce and resisted.

I will keep you posted.
