Sorry to hear you both went through this, girls. Somehow I continue to avoid it. I don’t go out much, but my boyfriend interacts with dozens of people, almost daily. Despite the recent increase in cases nationwide, almost no one is masking up anymore. We have both just gotten our second booster shots (Moderna). So if/when we do get it, hopefully it’s mild. My youngest son, who just traveled to Guam, from Japan, and back, got it for the second time, despite having been vaccinated with The J and J vaccine. Both times he tested positive, it was after traveling to a different part of the world. He said this time it felt like mild allergies. First time he had it, ( just 6 months ago), he said it felt like a regular head cold. Interestingly, the Armed Forces are not allowing the J and J vaccine any longer, because of reports of some severe heart side effects in young adults. Another son has also had it twice, but is also fine. He explained the worst part was the lingering cough, even after he felt better.
When John and I got our boosters last week, the Pharmacist told us to stop wearing masks. She said that we need to be exposed, in order to build up immunity. Not sure I’m buying that, but she may be right. Here’s hoping we all stay well, and if infected, come through it relatively unscathed….
