    My daughter and son both had it also and they had the same symptoms you had, luckily they didn't give it to the grandchildren. The son still has a cough though and is staying clear of the house, doesn't want to chance it giving it to his mother or me even though he has been negative for a couple of weeks now.

    @Brad , sounds extremely familiar... It sucks. I still have way less than half of my normal lung capacity. Merry Christmas 🎄

  • Brad's avatar

    @T.J. my lung capacity was affected in the first stint when I had less symptoms. I was getting winded going up the stairs then it went away. Good luck man I hope you recover soon.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Brian that’s smart. I think two of my three kids probably had it. The pediatrician said it’s just not concerning for the kids, which is great. Obviously we’ve been avoiding elderly folks and our parents. Hope everyone gets healthy.

    @Brad thank you brother.

  • Merry Christmas to you and your family and wishing you a full full recovery!!!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Aj thanks dude. Can’t keep me down I’m recovered and wreaking havoc on 2020, prepping for 2021. Stay safe.

    @Brad best to you on a full recovery. You need to make a full recovery so you can make it out my way and chase an elk herd around the mountains!! Good to see you out running! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Jeff appreciate it man. I’m mostly through it. Stay safe.

  • Brad's avatar

    @David 🤣thanks man

  • David's avatar

    Glad you're feeling better. Hang in there.

  • Glad you’re okay! Hope you had a great Christmas! ❤️ Merry Christmas to y’all!

  • Brian's avatar

    It’s really a weird thing, the people around here that have been the most careful are the ones getting it. My mom has it now and seems to be on the mend, she was very close to being hospitalized. Thankful that we haven’t gotten it in our house yet. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time though. Glad you’re feeling better.

  • Brad's avatar

    @David thanks man I’m all set

  • Brad's avatar

    @Colleen (DaDuckLady) Donohue merry Christmas!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Brian we’ve been mostly to ourselves then had 2 exposures in 2 days. 🤷‍♂️ it’s hard to hide from something this contagious but it’s worth the effort. Best of luck to your mom I hope she recovers well

  • Brian's avatar

    @Brad yes I agree. It more a matter of when, rather than if you’re going to catch it. Moms fever has broken and is doing much better the last couple days, it looks like she’s over the worst of it.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Brian great news!

  • Harold's avatar

    Glad you’re on the mend! Merry Christmas!

  • Cory's avatar

    I had it around Thanksgiving time. Thankfully, I just lost smell and taste. My taste came back but my smell is still struggling and isn’t back all the way. Being quarantined sucked, I didn’t realize how much I was on the go all the time until they said you can’t leave your property.

  • Steve's avatar

    Man o man, happy to hear you’re doing better!!! Here’s to a full and speedy recovery!!! Excellent work on your run!! Total AWESOMENESS!!!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Steve thanks Steve. I’ve bounced back pretty well! Time to get back into shape

  • Brad's avatar

    @Cory yeah I was starting to lose my mind. My smell and taste didn’t come back 100% yet either. Glad you’re doing better!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Harold 👊🎄

  • Larry's avatar

    So glad to hear that you’re on the other side of it and came out relatively well. Stay healthy.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Larry appreciate it man 🤙

  • Cory's avatar

    @Brad you too bud. I just hope this all is done by summer.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Cory ditto!

  • Brad's avatar

    @Dave Henson appreciate you sir.

  • Brian's avatar

    I have had it as well for me it was not to bad lost smell and taste for one evening, had a slight headache for a few days ,had a slight cough,and very small shortness of breath. I was still able to cut four trailer loads of wood so it was pretty easy on me.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Brian glad you rebounded!

  • Brian's avatar

    @Brad as I keep hearing it is bad for some and easy on others

  • Brad's avatar

    @Brian same with my friends and family. Some get minor headaches some have been in the hospital.

  • Kevin's avatar

    Had it myself. Worst thing was after it was all over I couldn't even cut a piece of fire wood without being winded! Slow recovery but pushing it is the only way to get back.

  • Brad's avatar

    @Kevin I had a brief period where walking up the stairs got me. Glad you’re on the rebound
