Omicron incubates more quickly to symptoms than prior strains do, maybe 4 days instead of 5 days.
Jenny got exposed last Wednesday when she carried COVID medicines and supplements to family in San Antonio and stayed a half hour making sure everything was understood and arranged.
She got mild symptoms Saturday/Sunday, but we had put her on daily ivermectin already, so it has stayed fairly mild.
I woke up sick yesterday morning, after sensing something faintly wrong the previous day.
I began taking zinc and quercetin-with-lecithin at noon yesterday, and again last night (3 times per day dosing).
My symptoms have been coarse irritation in my chest airways, cough, headache, aches in all my little muscles, headache, fatigue and some increased temperature. My fever peaked at bedtime, with Temp 101.0F. I took 2 extra strength Tylenol and felt better this morning, though symptoms again increased somewhat.
My temp is 98.8F now, and I'll see if it goes up if I feel worse. That's how it was last night.
I have added ivermectin to my treatment this morning, judging that I have improved some with zinc, quercetin and lecithin, but would like to improve faster and better.
I am naturally curious as to what I will notice, taking things one step at a time. Jenny continues to feel closer and closer to normal, never having had more than mild symptoms, similar to "cedar fever" and a bit more of aching/cramping in the areas which are still recovering from surgery, so the ivermectin has seemingly been relatively protective. I presume that I caught it from her, since the timing is right. She had a negative nasal swab yesterday and a negative flu.
It seems that the viral load in her nose is very low. That's good.
We are lounging around with fairly mild COVID, went for a nice warm afternoon walk yesterday, and are eating fresh vegetables.
I've considered taking a couple more Tylenol this morning, but I'm not feeling progressively worse, and have no fever, so I won't.
I've been seeing if I can tell if meditation helps my immune system, as I have read.
I can meditate while lying around.
I am not feeling fearful or threatened, just achy and unmotivated.
I'm pretty curious about all of this. It's quite interesting to finally explore it with my own body.
