45? Isn't that dead?

I had one rough night of aches and fever. Now just mostly weak. A mild and very intermittent cough. I just took an antigen test this morning and the positive band was stronger than the control. Isolated, and hoping my wife and daughter dodge it.

We were astonished. What was more appalling was they kept her for two days, got her all the way up to 57 and discharged her.

Would it be wise to get a cheap pulse ox meter considering the extended covid fatigue my SO and I have? Or is that not how that works?

Yes. They're so dumbly cheap that I don't know why they aren't sold more regularly. The difference between the $30 pulse-ox we bought my daughter when we were freaking out about croup and the $900 pulse-ox we use at the clinic is a point or two.
