By late afternoon yesterday dh had a fever of 101. I got out that expired covid test kit and was going to give it a try, but it's the kind that you have to use with an app on your phone, so when I scanned the card in the kit, it said it expired and wouldn't work. I slept upstairs last night, just in case he's contagious. This morning his temp was 100. Still having a super bad headache, but the sinus congestion/headache medication helped some. Just plain tylenol did nothing to help.
I ran into town at 9 this morning and picked up a new Covid test at the pharmacy (they had one box on the shelf), along with more sinus medication. Welp, he tested positive for Covid, so it's very likely I'm going to get it soon, too. We had to have been exposed at the same time/place, wherever that was. Somewhere we were at Sunday. He had not been anywhere in at least a week or more. We had stayed home the previous weekend. I went to the town grocery store a week ago, but that was by myself. Since I haven't caught it at the same time as him, I'm likely now to get it from him.
So, I called my mom's place and let them know we had visited my mom for less than a half hour on Sunday and my dh has Covid. She said she will let the head nurse know and they will likely quarantine her for a bit. Then I called the clinic in town dh has been to once or twice before. I talked to a nurse, just to ask her what is the best to do for him with it. She said at this point, just tylenol/advil for the fever and aches and lots of rest and fluids. If he gets worse to call them or go to ER. Hopefully it won't be too bad.
If I do come down with it here in the next day or two, at least I have a long weekend and already had scheduled Tues and Wed off work, so hopefully I'd be past the worst of it by then. So far I'm not feeling anything.
Dh didn't get a call back from our garbage service driver, but today was garbage day. He was a bit later this morning and dh heard him coming so walked out near the fence/gate to ask him about it. He said he did get the message and that he did have a valve leak and it's fixed. There was no stinky fluid dripped out this trip, so hopefully that's fixed. This was before I got back home with the test kit, so dh didn't know he had Covid, but he never got even close to the driver, probably 8-10 feet away.
Here's an interesting tidbit. The train tracks are on the other side of the river, like 750 feet from our house. But, when the train is going by it actually makes a vibration in our house! As the train is going by right now, the water in the water bottle on my desk is moving. Crazy that it has that effect that far away.
