So, lots of good news around here - mainly that Eleanor has yet to show any symptoms, so I think she is in the clear. I hope so anyway, because this is super stressful. Children's Hospital won't test kids unless they are showing symptoms. I could have her tested anywhere else, but I do not want to put her through that if I don't have to. It sucks. If you have yet to be tested for COVID, you are lucky. It is awful and anyone who says otherwise is a dirty liar, or impervious to pain.
As for me, I am not really sure. I started having some mild symptoms Friday and Saturday - mainly headaches and being very tired. The headache thing is weird because I have atypical migraines and as a result of my migraine meds, I don't typically get headaches. These have persisted since last weekend. I thought these two things might be reactions to the stress of it, seeing as how my migraines are typically stress-induced.
I was instructed to retest by my district contact tracers/nurses, since I tested within three days of last being in contact with Eleanor's dad so it was possible to test negative and still have it. I retested yesterday and got my second negative test of the week today, so yay.
Except I am STILL headachey and tired.
So, who knows at this point. Eleanor and I will keep wearing our masks at home together and stay six feet apart or more as often as possible, just in case.
Thank you everyone who has checked in on us.
Sarah and Eleanor
