Yesterday I got tested for Covid 19. And it was, you guessed it, no picnic.
I’d been having a slight sore throat for a couple days. Then chills. Yesterday I woke up with a slight fever (100.6), had a headache and cough (again, slight). I figured I better call the dr because I have the immune system of a gnat. She said I better go get tested because I cant take any chances. I called the local hospital, and I got an appointment for the afternoon.
Sam (brave thing) came with me. Whilst waiting, we see a car in front of us…
I, of course, read this as alibis. We were dying trying to come up with different alibis we could give people. He was with me all night, She was at the restaurant etc…Meanwhile it took us 2 hours to get to the tent where the test was because the printer wasn’t working. Finally we get up to the tent. It was POURING rain and these poor people were out there for god knows how long and still were as pleasant and lovely as they could be. Then then nurse says “Im going to swab your nose, try not to move your head.” I thought I was going to die.
This is what happens. Look above. Im gasping and choking. Sam is horrified. It only took a couple seconds but it was terrible. So, we’ll learn the results anywhere from today to 5 days from now. Im quarantined in the bedroom.
Today still have headache, but no fever. The doc said this may be just a spring virus, which I hope is right. Only time will tell, and at least I have my alibi straight.
