We have colds. COVID-SARS 19 was Not Detected. We’re good – until the next cold!
I looked at our medical records and realized this is the fourth time we’ve been tested for COVID. About every third month we get “something” and get tested. Once everyone knows you don’t have IT, you get zero sympathy. It’s just a cold.
The test has changed. No more things stuck up your nose. All you have do is spit. Garry did pretty well, but I take a bunch of medications that dry my mouth — and I forgot to bring something to drink. Garry thought my inability to spit was hilarious. I was not nearly as amused but the result is fine and I think I’m not going to die. We got our results in fewer than 12 hours. We didn’t have any wait in line, either and didn’t have to get out of our car. I think the people who came after us had maybe a half hour wait, but they were moving cars through pretty fast.
We had to stop at the pharmacy on the way home. There was a big sign on the desk which said: “NO WE DO NOT HAVE THE VACCINE!” I knew that. We are so terrible at distributing the vaccine, practically no one has gotten it.
We passed. Meanwhile, my nose is stuffy, my sinuses hurt, and I’m just a wee bit wheezy. Welcome to winter in New England and please pass the tissues.
