Booster benefits

Bar’s sister who is an RN and head of nursing at a local hospital says after the staff were given their boosters they tested out at antibody levels of 2,000. However long it lasts is the question that won’t be answered for a while, but it starts off strong.

UPDATE: 900 is good enough.

Bar’s daughter has Covid

No fancy infusion, nor Ivermectin. Just staying home from work and taking Metamucil. Has had the first two shots, but missed out on the booster. But she’s only 27. She does have heart trouble, which could turn bad. But we’re keeping an ear out for her via iPhone As well as her aunt, Bar’s sister, who is an RN. So far, she says, “it’s a bad case of the flu but I don’t feel like I’m dying.”

Pulling out the stops

A pipe organ term I believe but this time for the wife of another OCS bud who has Covid. Her doc has prescribed Ivermectin and intravenous infusion of antioxidants. Fortunately she has had all three jabs, but, then, she’s in her seventies with asthma.

Awaiting Wheat’s stone

This is the month the Oklahoma tombstone makers forecast they’d have OCS chum Russell Wheat’s marker up in Higgins, Texas. That was back in May when they had a granite shortage thanks to the Wuhan Virus and various lockdowns. Sure hope they don’t have to extend it to a later month.

Seems increasingly obvious that the virus should be called the Wuhan Virus and not some obscuring name like Covid 19 or the Coronavirus (which you presumably can get if you drink Corona beer).

Unvaxxed die

Lee, one of my OCS chums, has lost his daughter to the Wuhan virus, just a little over a month after her husband died of it. Neither were vaccinated. Both had co-morbidities. They leave two young daughters. Our hearts are broken.

Super Spreader?

Mr. Boy was home for the weekend to attend the Austin City Limits music festival at Zilker Park. He estimated that 100,000 others were there with him, shoulder to shoulder, some masked many not. He’s been vaxed with the Pfizer twice, so he wasn’t worried, but whether he should have been remains to be seen.

Delta’s bright spot

[S]aid Robert Colgrove, interim chief of infectious diseases at Mount Auburn Hospital and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. “A welcome development is that totally vaccinated, frail older people with medical conditions — even among them we’re seeing very few hospitalizations, unlike in the first couple of pre-vaccine waves of the epidemic when there were just enormous amounts of very, very sick [elderly] people.”

But Lambda is on the way and there are more than a dozen other variants of potential concern.
