make sure she watches for any sign of blood clotting , like swollen legs and call the DR right away

I have been told by several people who had Covid get started on aspirin or ibuprofen when you get symptoms but that is something she should discuss with her Dr. I am not one.

hope she feels better , with no taste it can be hard to get down the fluids but fluids are important with that kind of fever

maybe you can run her by a case of Gatorade and boxed meals and drop them on the step for your daughter and grand daughter.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Thanks guys. One of millions I feel will get the memorial day increases of cases. They got back from Tennessee Sunday. I tried to protect them and said stay home but youngsters know best. Went down to pick up a vehicle and drove it back for a family friend. Spent the night with them .

If it makes you feel better I had a temp of 104.7 and never knew it, lol. She’ll be fine in a day or two if she’s even feeling sick. About like a sinus infection. Double up on vitamins C, D3, and Zinc. I had to use ice under my armpits and knees to get my temp down but didn’t have the fever symptoms. Never got chills or sweated it out. Never even missed a day of trapping.

And I’ll add our 6 year old never even acted sick in any way even though he was couped up in the house with my wife and I. Every Doctor I talked to said we probably got it from him. They said kids hardly ever show any symptoms. We never got him tested but I’m sure he’d test positive for the antibodies.

Don't know if it was covid but in February of 2020 I got something that knocked me on my rear. Out of breath, 103 fever, and chills. No body aches like common with flu. Fever for three days but dragging for a couple weeks. Ended my beaver trapping for the year. I drank on a bottle of Nyquil until fever broke for my funk.

Yes sir, more than likely you had it. If I water trapped it would have probably put me down as well. A normal 1hr ride through check doubled during that time with catches and deer tripped traps. I was weak and slow for about a month afterwards. But as you stated, no body aches.

Praying for a quick recovery. You have more than likely had the virus or been around it already unless you have been sleeping under a rock for over a year now. I had it and lost taste and smell for 9 days. Unless your daughter is in poor health, she will recover from it. My Dad is 77 and has COPD. He got it and survived. Everyone is different with this crap. Glad to see you are finally taking it seriously though. LLL
