Husband really wanted to see some of the grandchildren at Christmas. So, Number One Son, his wife and their two boys came over for a few hours. It was a delightful time.
Two days later, we all developed colds.
Three days after that, Daughter-In-Law let us know she had tested positive for Covid-19.
Ah, we don’t actually have colds.
Tests on the three of us all came back positive.
This was particularly scary because I am in a high-risk category due to lung damage from severe pneumonia 6-1/2 years ago.
But, thanks to good genetics, good luck and God’s blessings we have all come through in good order.
Daughter (at age 20) was expected to be fine, and has been, with very mild symptoms (mostly loss of smell/taste). Husband had mild symptoms (mostly congestion and a head ache). I had slightly less mild symptoms (cough, congestion, loss of smell/taste). BUT, we are all still breathing.
Daughter-in-Law was not so fortunate. She became seriously ill and was hospitalized for a time. She is home now and recovering, but it was not good. She is only 36.
Today (Monday, January 11) I am back at school with my much-missed students. I am moving a little slowly, but so grateful and glad to be here.
I did get a lot of sewing done. Between naps. And, I will have more to share soon.
