Covid has hit close to me, now

glenda_al

Son called earlier on the way to doctor for himself and wife.

She was running fever, him a sore throat.


She has the virus, he tested negative.


Both quarantined for two weeks.


Prayers

Oh Glenda I am so sorry, you and your son and his wife are all in my most earnest prayers. I hope her case is mild and resolves with no lasting effects.

Yes: good look to you and yours. Unfortunately as the highly contagious virus continues to spread like wild fire through the population more and more Americans are going to be reached by it - effective vaccination of the general population cannot come soon enough, we are in a race between the spread of the virus and the arrival of vaccination being available to everyone.

Grandson, who is in the Navy, is here, but told son I won't plan to see him, since he spent couple days this week with his dad, and it is too soon for me to be around him. At least that is what I think. He has to be back on base Sunday.

Recently routine masking even within shared households was starting to be recommended.

Oh no. I hope her symptoms are mild and she recovers quickly. I pray your son and grandson do not get it. Take care Glenda, I'm so sorry you don't get to see them this holiday.

Glenda - I am so sorry to hear this. Will grandson have to be tested before returning to base? I hope your DIL recovers quickly with no lingering affects and that you all continue to be healthy.

Glenda. I’m so sorry. Stay strong. It’s so difficult. We look forward to seeing our loved ones. I have three kids and my first grandson now. Please, they wouldn’t want to live with you getting sick. I hope DIL recovers quickly and completely. I hope your son and grandson have natural immunity and don’t catch it.

I just learned of three relatives in Europe who have it. My cousin’s son fully recovered. An older cousin and wife have it now.

This vaccine can’t come fast enough.

I'm sorry Glenda. I'm sure not the news you'd hoped for on Thanksgiving. Prayers for a quick and full recovery for your DIL. And that your son can still care for her needs without exposing himself. We do have a friend who had the virus and his wife avoided catching it....but a retired nurse so she may have been more diligent than some of us would know how to be.

Oh, so sorry your DIL is sick. Hope the virus is quickly *done* with them, leaving no indication it was ever there. How mean that you can't see your DGS while he's *right there* on leave! Can you meet outdoors -- at least SEE one another and exchange virtual hugs?

Oh dear. Such a worry, Glenda. Hopefully she will just have a mild case and your son will stay negative. Just talked to a friend who has it and her hubby, too. He was hit much harder than she but they're both doing well. His parents (92 and 93) have it as well and so far they are okay.

DD just stopped by to bring me some marinated veggies she made. She reluctantly came in the house for a short visit.....socially distanced and a window opened. I've been very careful but I think she's even more careful than I am. I will be so happy when we get back to a normal way of life. Stay safe and keep us posted on the family.

I just found out my neighbor's daughter has covid...she's in her early 30s, married with 2 kids. She's type 1 diabetic and recently moved so she doesn't have a physician...none will see her with covid and no specialists will see here without a primary care first due to her insurance. So a real catch-22. Last thing she needs is to go to a clinic. Right now she is very ill, unable to keep food down and her blood sugars are going crazy. I hope she makes it through ok.

Annie, so sorry to hear about your neighbor’s daughter. It seems like the more this drags on, the more people closer to us we hear about having it.

I just found out a few days ago a sweet, lovely young-ish member of our church is in a ventilator. She is probably in her early 50’s, and she and her DH recently became grandparents. Of course we haven’t been attending services, so I had no idea until another friend told me. She always had the brightest smile for anyone, and believe me, a bright light will go out if she doesn’t make it.

Sad to hear about these cases. I learned this week that both my mail carrier and the Postmaster of our small Post Office were out sick for weeks with Covid. I stopped putting time and effort into sanitizing the mail some time ago, but it sounds like maybe I should have kept it up. Happy to report they've recovered.

Thanks, OutsidePlaying. It is quite concerning. I can't imagine her 2 young boys losing their mother at such an early age...and to such a senseless disease and situation. Hopefully, her system will be strong enough to pull her through.

I received birthday wishes from someone in my husband's water exercise group today. That passed a while ago only to find out that she is in the hospital on oxygen. At first when I asked about contacting the circle she declined but decided she might need their prayers. Giving her overnight to decide yay or nay. She is the only one that I know of in my immediate friends but have heard of other not immediate family.


For those that do not have a doctor and my health insurance company may have withdrawn the comment but back when this started you could contact them via phone and they would provide the names of doctors and urgent cares that would accept patients. If you think that you may need to go to an ER do not hesitate to call your insurance companies care line. Similar to what I am supposed to do to have an ER visit covered unless I am unable to contact them because of accident or serious health problem requiring immediate ER visit.

Sorry to hear of your trouble, Annie. Hope that things work out well.

ETA: no trouble, it seems, Annie. Things being as they are, I hope you can avoid any. ______

Is your neighbour's recently- moved daughter far from her earlier home? Could she visit her former GP, and might s/he know of a specialist in her new area? Maybe ask about that before her visit to give him/her time to check on possible references.

Good news! We're both negative! Yeah! And our fevers have broken! Yay!

Neighbor's daughter is doing better today. She's able to keep food down which stabilizes her blood sugar. Now she's just suffering with fatigue and headache. Hopefully, she'll just get better from here.
