Sorry to hear about your husband's diagnosis. I suspect the doctor didn't prescribe Paxlovid because there are some strong side effects and there's new evidence of covid rebound. I think the risk-benefit analysis has changed since it was first made widely available. My 18yo son recently tested positive and I gave my doctor the head's up. She was willing to send a script for me to have on hold in case I got it (I'm also higher risk), but she advised that I only take it if my symptoms were more than mild. She said she'd need me to stop all other meds too. So even with my health risks, she wanted me to consider it carefully.
Love your fact dense weekly updates. Can't wait for yellowstone connection!
