By the way, I DID get Covid the week before Thanksgiving (just realized I never posted about it). A while back I had posted with concerns about my cats catching it in the event I ever got it, and I have to admit that idea scared me when I tested positive (along with all the OTHER things that scared me at that time!).
They say to avoid contact with your pets while you're sick with it, but when you're laying down and sleeping much of the time and you wake up to find your cats cuddled up with you, there's not much you can do about it.
I'm happy to report it's a month later and my cats have shown no signs of getting ill. So while it's not an ideal situation, it appears they came through it just fine.
Just thought I'd let everyone know.
Glad to see you are better, and that the furballs did not catch it...good nursing! nm

I can't imagine trying to isolate from nurse-kitties while feeling lousy.
It was midweek the second week of December before I wasn't ending every workday feeling like death warmed over, and I still have a little bit of a residual itchy throat (they say that can linger for weeks) but other than that I'm feeling mostly back to normal.
I have to say, I'm in no hurry to get it again. I was actually scheduled for my bivalent booster two days after I tested positive (obviously I canceled THAT appointment!). So now I'll probably delay that until February (CDC says about three months after your positive test). So that should keep me covered well into spring. But I still plan on being careful. After all, breakthrough cases are happening every day (and who knows how sneaky all the new variants will end up being!).
Sure is a different world we live in now, isn't it?
