Never Have I Ever...

I am not surprised that I would get infected with Covid virus again, I have myself to blame for I did not wear masks ever since I came back from US.  But never have I ever expect to get this virus on the day before my birthday!  LOL... 

My kids and I had made plans to celebrate my birthday in a happy poshy style... ahemmm... not exactly posh, just exaggerating on my part here.  But alas, it did not come out as planned, the night before my Big Day, I was feeling kind of lethargic, I couldn't sleep and I had a stinging sensation in my throat.  I did not expect it to the virus, the next morning, I felt very flu-ish, not feverish, it was like my bones were aching and I shivered at the running water from the tap.  I thought it would go away after taking a panadol.... no, it did not...

My son advised me to take a covid test and in less than a few seconds, there were two bright clear lines on the test kit.  Oh no.... what should I do?  My grandchildren were around, and the next thing I knew, my daughter-in-law also had it.  Hers is fainter in color but nevertheless two lines too.  Aiyoh....

Leaving no choice, both of us were confined to a room and the male have to take care of the small little ones.  It was a big project especially the ladies were not around to help.... well, the guy had to do what the ladies would have done, feeding, bathing and putting them to sleep.

As for the infected, both of us just drank lots of lemon and honey juice, ate 3000mg of Vitamin C for the next five days.  That was when we got a negative sign on the test kit and we were freed to go.  The father and the kids were not infected, thank God... 

So I guess Covid virus is here to stay, whether we like it or not.  From then on, mask is mandatory again for me.  This is the second time I have Covid, the first one was two years back.  Since then I have been taking Tiger mushroom and recently started off with cordyceps capsules from Eu Yan Sang.  I guess those helps to strengthen back the lungs, cos this second time round, I did not cough as drastically as the first time.  Anyway, you all take care too... be protected....
