    Latest update:

    Just short and sweet.

    Kids fine. Fit and well like nothing happened.
    Wife in bed. Aching. Coughing day and night. She’s poorly but not dangerously so.
    Me? Day 6. Had a hot night with sweats. Body is aching. Mild cough. Runny nose. Breathing is harder. Not quite able to get full breaths. Wife started at day 5.

    I’m not worried. I know I’m ill. Odds are it’s covid but I’m not eligible for a test; only if I’m hospitalised.

    Food, fuel, medicines supplies are good. I’ve got a couple of teenagers to run errands and I’m not bed bound.
    I think my wife has it worst.
    Funny thing? I’m blood group A as are the teenagers. The wife is O. She’s got it the worst but she’s had lung damage from when she was in the military.

    I’ll try and keep you updated.

    Temp is 98.2 this morning. Not too bad.
    It’s just the tiredness is terrible. The cough is annoying and the breathing slows you down. I’m not going to take medication for the first 48 hrs to let my body do the fighting. I think that’s where wifey went wrong. She started straight away on the acetaminophen.

    I’ll keep you updated. Don’t worry about me. I’m strong. God bless.

    Denton, I’ll be ok. It’s just like a quick heavy cold.

    Latest update from our friend who prefers to be anonymous:

    Kids are all good. Now getting bored and wanting to get back to school.
    They are irritating me as they are whining about this being unfair to them.
    Wifey is tired, grumpy and coughing.
    Temperature has gone. She’s bouncing back already. She just says she feels tired and breathing is difficult.
    I’ve got a real headache and neck ache.
    The constant coughing is irritating me. There’s a funny taste in my mouth after a coughing fit. It’s the worst cold I’ve ever had in my life.
    But I need to get through this as I’ve people depending upon me.
    Food, fuel and supplies are all good still.
    Takeaway message: it’s not pleasant. 10/10 would not recommend it.

    That's why he wants this posted. He and his family are going through this. This isn't something from news media.

    Glad you are praying for him. I worried about his family but am worrying more about him. I think he needs to go to a hospital but he's a bit hard-headed. Veterans seem to be that way. Always putting others before themselves.

    Another update.

    Kids remain fine. A little bit of cabin fever but otherwise all good.
    Wifey is still under the weather. Coughing on a frequent basis. Tired. Achy.
    I’m so tired too. I feel like I’ve run a marathon. Tired slightly out of breath and earaches today. Temperature is normal today. I feel like I’m an old man. Wheezy breathing but my cough isn’t as bad as the wifey. She is still going strong I suppose. I worried she would get it worse but if she did she never looked or sounded like I do.
    Good news - the appetite has gone.
    I’m on the Vitamin C. Manuka honey and Apple Cider Vinegar are the usual go to comforts at times like this. I can’t explain how tired I am. I’m spent. Everything is difficult. Everything is a struggle. Getting out of bed is tiring. Standing under the shower, it is tempting to close my eyes and try to sleep. My body is in full “fight the infection “ mode. Thankful that I have no reason to leave my home. I’m not sure I could concentrate well enough to drive. It really hits your lungs hard.

    I’m safe though and not worried yet. Days to do and I’ll pull through.
