Booked his covid test for tomrorow pm. Husband said he woke up feeling sick and my stomach doesnt feel great right now either.

I think I jinxed us when I said it was a matter of time before we all got sick :rofl: :0

I took 2 Binax tests today (because I thought I fucked up the first) and both came back negative

Alright guys... we rarely get sick in this house. What do you give them when they wont hold food or water or medication for that matter?

Ive given him a cool pack which he says feels good, but hes back up to 101.2 and I dont know how to give him tylonal without him being sick again. I also tried gingerale which he puked up 30 seconds later...

As a word of warning, timing on the at home tests is tricky. I went to my doc on Friday and said I had a negative and when I ran down the timeline she said I was likely outside the time when the at home would have caught it.

There's about a 35% give or take 10% that it works for omicron based on what the doc's practice was seeing compared to the quick tests.

So take that for what it's worth. Also the home tests suck, or maybe it's just the elume one with it's tickly af little brush :mad:

Adult or child w/ 101.2?

Nope. Puked oatmeal, gingerale and tylonal/ gravol I gave him so far.
Asked the wife. Who is not a doctor and wants a disclaimer that this is not medical advice and though she is a nurse she is not liable please seek appropriate medical assistance etc.

"If they're puking up everything, get a cold compress on the forehead and Tylenol suppositories."


"You can try Pedialyte Popsicles (which you would have to make) (and things like that) (and even regular popsicles would help) to help combat dehydration/etc."

Thanks! Yah I did the cold compress on his back of the neck... seemed to help. Hes definitely fighting the fever without medicine though.

Ill have to wait till my husband gets home and see if I can get him some suppositories... although thats going to be fun 😬

Did you do the throat swab on the antigen test?

Watch this.


I didn't have an account/have to login, @Sp33dealer

Also, skip the Ellume test is what I learned from that. Kinda wish I knew this when we were still sick so I could have compared :hs:

It’s not letting me watch this video without an account

Also you’re lucky I’m clicking on a tiktok, only for you lol

I don't have a TikTok account either. Thought I could direct link it, but this article has it posted. :o

Long story short, antigen tests may not catch the same Omicron COVID positive if you swab only your nose instead of your throat and nose. Throat first. ;)
