General COVID-19 Topic

My wife and I both tested positive this morning.   My daughter had some type of upper respiratory / sinus infection that she couldn't shake.   Multiple Covid tests on her came back negative.   She ended up on two sets of medication to try and knock it out.   I've had the same thing for over a week and took a test this morning since it was bad for a couple of days and now I just can't shake it.   I woke up feeling exhausted today but I also was playing golf in the heat and at the pool, so I thought I was wiped out.  Not sure if I am on the tail end, or my daughter had something else and then I got Covid somehow.   

For me, it's been like having a sinus infection and I end up with this gunk stuck in the back of my throat.  Couple of days of sinus pressure here and there.   Vaccines and boosters seem to be doing their thing.

I've heard similar from others. And yes, to the bold, too. Vaccines don't mean you won't catch it, they mean you're far less likely to have it as badly because your body can fight it off more quickly and effectively.

What about long Covid? It’s still early to make any firm conclusions on it I’m guessing other than try not and get it.

Scientific Reports - Low HDL and high triglycerides predict COVID-19 severity

Lipids are indispensable in the SARS-CoV-2 infection process. The clinical significance of plasma lipid profile during COVID-19 has not been rigorously evaluated. We aim to ascertain the association of the plasma lipid profile with SARS-CoV-2 infection clinical evolution. Observational cross-sectional study including 1411 hospitalized patients with COVID-19 and an available standard lipid profile prior (n: 1305) or during hospitalization (n: 297). The usefulness of serum total, LDL, non-HDL and HDL cholesterol to predict the COVID-19 prognosis (severe vs mild) was analysed. Patients with severe COVID-19 evolution had lower HDL cholesterol and higher triglyceride levels before the infection. The lipid profile measured during hospitalization also showed that a severe outcome was associated with lower HDL cholesterol levels and higher triglycerides. HDL cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations were correlated with ferritin and D-dimer levels but not with CRP levels. The presence of atherogenic dyslipidaemia during the infection was strongly and independently associated with a worse COVID-19 infection prognosis. The low HDL cholesterol and high triglyceride concentrations measured before or during hospitalization are strong predictors of a severe course of the disease. The lipid profile should be considered as a sensitive marker of inflammation and should be measured in patients with COVID-19.

I never got to comment on this thread.

Basically in KSA vaccines were pronounced as mandatory for everyone.  An application was made and if you didn’t show a green vaccinated page you weren’t let in to shops, yours place of work, schools or airports.

My wife and I took both initial shots and then they made the booster mandatory.

I took Astrazeneca, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and I ended up catching Covid twice.  Systems put me on my ass for almost a week each time, but never needed hospitalization or anything like that.  Both times my whole family caught it but they didn’t show any symptoms.

All restrictions since then have been lifted, there are no mandates, no one uses the application and by all standards things have gone back to normal now.

I haven’t been to the States since then, but look forward to next summer.  I hope everyone made it through all right and took care through out.

My pharmacist tells me they should have the next vaccine available in the next week or so. I'll be one of the first in line.

Got the latest jab and surprisingly this one hurt the least and nary any lethargy or flu like symptoms. Switched arms this time maybe that might have something to do with it.

You sure jump on those shots!  I heard this last Covid booster can affect your golf game, increasing your distances by 20 or more yards.  Enjoy.  I'm gonna wait a bit for my 5th shot.

Got my 5th stab today. While I was at it I decided to get the latest flu shot, too. I should be invulnerable now...

Current variant in my area seems to be causing limited respiratory symptoms, and most of them upper. I don't think our hospital has any inpatients with COVID pneumonia right now. In fact I think our only COVID inpatients are incidental positives (screening before surgery, etc.). 

My son had it this week and lost his voice for a day, had a headache, and lots of weakness. He was 95% better in 2 days. He had the primary series sort of late in the game, but no boosters. 

I had my last booster (3rd dose overall) 10 months ago. It will be interesting to see if I get any symptoms.

... and it'll add 30 yards to your drives.

If I drive it any further they’ll have to ship my ball back to me! 😁

    • It was great seeing you again. I still can’t believe you almost drove the green on 5 and 16!
    • Mr. Patton, if you play your Highland bagpipes I'm playing some Mozart and Beethoven to counter the effect... 😀
    • After many years of playing golf I finally understood the importance of "keep a steady head". It is definitely possible to shift your weight to your left foot without moving your head. It has helped mi enormously to have more precision at impact. Look at Fred Couples. His head has zero movement throughout the swing with the driver.  
    • Paula Creamer bailed on a stroke but still hit the ball, and she was allowed to replay it, but I think even that one was perhaps handled incorrectly (it was a long time ago, and she just topped it, she didn't actually miss). I will also say that if you intentionally miss (and a PGA Tour player missing a driver by six inches is an intentional miss), it's not a stroke. The rules definition currently is: "The forward movement of the club made to strike the ball." It used to say the stroke had to be made "with the intention to hit the ball" and included language for when/if "a player checks his swing" or something like that. I think the first and second rules officials tried to apply 13.1d - ball at rest accidentally moved (on a putting green), which is to replace and not count the stroke. But it wasn't accidental. That he couldn't stop in time isn't an "accident." It's just an aborted swing that he didn't abort in time. The stroke should have counted. Officials are humans too.
    • I carry the Kirkland wedge set (G,S,L) and the pitching wedge that came with my irons set. The L wedge is my go-to wedge for around the green fringe, and anything around a 50 yard play - I love it.
