I know its easy me saying this but I would imagine it is far better for her to catch it now and put it behind her rather than downstream at some point when her immunity is worsened/negated by cancer treatment - fingers crossed that she gets a replacement appt asap - in my own case I showed clear on the 8th day and I just hope the nhs dont play silly buggers with her needing to show clear for any longer than thatWell we finally got it last week after avoiding it since the start. We were on holiday, catching up with family and friends. My wife's oldest friend/brother-from-another-mother had felt ill enough to warrant an LFT test earlier in the day, but it came up negative, so of course he came out for a meal with us that evening, hugged the missus, shook my hand, sat next to us in the pub (this was last Monday)... Then he went home early as he felt shit and tested positive on the Tuesday.
That then meant we'd have to cancel all our other planned catch-ups with friends. By Thursday we had sore throats and were starting to feel shit. Decided to drive home early on Friday. Took a test - negative but feeling absolutely dire. Took another test Saturday morning and both tested positive. Felt shite all day Sunday, but suddenly a lot better late last night and 100 times better this morning, except for hot flushes.
The worst thing about all this is that my wife was diagnosed with cancer a couple of weeks ago (thankfully early) and she's due in for a scan this week that now needs to be cancelled. I'm absolutely furious that he thought it was a good idea, not only to come out, but to then hug her when he knew that she's about to undergo major medical shit and REALLY doesn't need covid/long covid on top of it all.
