I figured Grof was just BSing and reading his response confirms. Thanks for the link.

:l :l :l :l :l :l

Yes, we are all near death here and basically hiding from the world.

Dude...you're goofy. :l

Before Delta was even around 2 of us had covid. Then when the Delta wave hit the rest of us got covid. We all have a baseline of antibody tests from those infections. Now there is omicron....we either had it or we didn't. Pretty impossible not to based on our exposure, but nobody got more than a sniffle, and nobody wanted to be tested. Once this variant is gone we'll all get another antibody test.....we'll see what change there has been, if any.

How hard is it to monitor one's own health. :l :l
Like I said you don’t know, even though you claimed you did.

And any more info on your antibody level? The one you check, the one that’s so easy to monitor ones health with.

Or you can spin it a use a put down or show your emotions with a emoji. :tu

Well, we know which one our doctor thinks we had, for the reasons I gave you. Do you not know an infectious disease Dr., or Immunologists? I mean, I'm guessing your sphere is pretty small.....but it's still your responsibility to take care of your own health. Get everybody tested in your family who has been infected and you will find the antibody test numbers are all over the chart. All of our immune systems are not the same, nor are the individual responses.

But, this I know.....we are entering year 3....and we have followed the advice we were given since day one....before any thought of a vaccine was on the horizon. From ages 21-88 we have walked right through it. No masks, no vaccines, no quarter given whatsoever. I think we'll just stay on the path there binky. :l :l

Pretty sure that these antibody levels are not stable, so any baseline measure you have would be essentially useless. I think they drop off pretty quickly, in just a few months. They may be more stable with multiple vaccines and with actual infections.

I suppose that a good lab could test to see which variants you have been infected by, but that is not something your doctor would normally test for.

My wife was still at 120 a year after her test.....the lowest of any of us.

I never said we were tested for any specific variant. Our Dr. made the same guess that the CDC makes.......and has been guessing at since day 1. :l :l

You can get an antibody test at most med stops. It's not as complicated and scary as we've all been told. It's still not killing 99% +++ of the people who get it. Don't be obese or old and it's barely at flu levels for mortality. This stuff is not even arguable. :l

Pretty sure that my old college roommate, PhD, MD, and renowned infectious disease expert told me: Antibodies are cool if you have a lot, but mostly just ‘indicators’, and that your white cell/immune system ‘memory’ (my layman’s interpretation) is FAR more important with viruses, and that RNA developed vaccines only work with the specific virus, not necessarily any mutations, don’t always trigger the natural immune response to a virus family that’s desired, and may in fact contribute to mutations in broadly vaccinated populations. That’s just trying to recall the conversation about WUHAN we had nearly 2years ago now.

I guess I’ll take his expertise over some internet commandos with far more a zz than brains.

True enough. Your T-cell response is likely much more important. The experts in the field that I talk to were adamant that natural immunity would beat the vaccination hands down. I have seen nothing in our circle to make me doubt that.

For those wishing to have a Covid antibody test, my own experience that gets results is:
  • Contact your primary care provider and tell them you want an antibody test
  • The provider will fill out a lab order form and give it to you
  • Take the lab order and contact the testing lab and either make an appointment or walk in
  • Visit the lab (walk in or appointment), provide the lab order and your coverage and contact information
  • The lab folks will take your blood
  • Your coverage may pay or maybe you will pay
  • Two or three days later the lab will contact you with your lab results
  • Depending upon your personal history and test timing your results may be positive, negative, false positive, or false negative
Your personal experience may vary. Follow Fauci at your own risk.

The local Urgent Care did ours with no appointment. I suppose that could be different now with everybody wanting to be tested.

If you're looking for 100% prevention (or anything, actually), you'll never find it.
I never have been looking for “prevention”. And it looks like people are starting to catch up where I was after this whole fiasco began. Bari Weiss - meh. What took you so long? But get a load of that liberal Bill Maher crowds applause.
