Oh my goodness, I am so sorry. I know that one of the early symptoms is lost of taste and smell, but this is reversible, do not worry.

@rsa101 I hope it is not airborne. I am a bit scared since I am always going out if things needed here.

@Shavkat l think it is proven already that it can stay airborne for several hours after droplets are released from a patient

i guess it's hard to know where you caught it. have you informed everyone you've been in contact with so they can be can decide to be tested or isolated themselves too?

Hope you get well soon. Just keep yourself busy with Mylot and the internet so you won't get bored. Don't tire yourself though. Get enough sleep and eat though you may not feel like eating. Our flower girl before who is now a nurse in Texas got infected too last month too and she did the things I told you. She's now well and is back on duty. Cardinal Tagle has been diagnosed to be positive too a few days ago.

My mom said eating was so hard without being able to taste her food. I think she had it for 19 days.

Gosh, I am so sorry I missed this post, too. I could have offered rosaries for you. No excuses but this was the time I was bringing food to my daughter at a hotel where she was quarantined. Just thankful that you are well again.

@rsa101 Yay. Yay. Thank God. Now you have a real story to tell. Write down how it was, if you can, the minute by minute blow, the doctors, the nurses, the tests, the reality of the fear, and the courage you summoned for dearest life.
