Covid strikes in the family again, and this time it is me. Last night I went to bed early because I felt very tired and was starting to feel chilled. I didn’t have a temperature, but it was a restless night with severe muscle aches. This morning, I did have a slight temp of 100.6, so I tested and indeed found I was positive for Covid. I felt better during the day, but I am starting to fade. So, again, I will head to bed early and hope it is a better night than last night. I did have a telemed Zoom appointment today with a nurse practitioner. According to my symptoms, so far this is a mild case. But the NP did order Paxlovid in case I decide to take it. If I feel better tomorrow, I think I will skip taking it.

The good news today is that Jed tested negative, so he was able to drive Sam to rowing. As Jed said, it will be a miracle if Sam doesn’t come down with Covid next. He was exposed to Jonah on Saturday and Sunday and then me on the two days before I tested positive. I was masked the whole time while in the car with him yesterday and Monday and kept the windows open for ventilation as we have been doing every day. I guess we’ll see if that was enough.

Tonight I watched a live stream of a Climate Week session sponsored by Woodwell Climate Research Center. Heather moderated. She looked great and facilitated brilliantly. And the two scientists on the panel were very informative.
