2 & 1/2 Years Later…
Tuesday, May 24th, 2022

We planned, worked the plan, kept ourselves apart… Then the local numbers improved. We got a little lax. We still wore masks inside at Walmart. We had just started eating inside restaurants (not often), but only when they first opened and weren’t very populated.

Then the 18-year-old had all these senior events and practices for graduation…

Graduation happened last Saturday. His symptoms started the next day. By last night, both him and his father tested positive for COVID. Now, everyone in the house has varying symptoms. My dd is making one last trip to Walmart—delivery to the car—for medicine and soups and tissues before we hunker down to get through this.

As for me, I have a sore throat and mild cough. I’ve had a headache for three days. My joints hurt. My eyes are constantly watering. Still, I’m sitting at my desk. I’ll hope for the best and keep moving. I’m healthy-ish, eat right, keep hydrated. I could use good thoughts. One of the family seems to be on a worrisome progression.

    I can run invalid supplies down your way if y’all get in a crunch and can’t get out. If you need something, yell. Hope y’all get to feeling better soon.

    Healing thoughts & vibes being sent your way. I understand your symptoms right now….last week I woke up on Monday and had those and other symptoms…& yep, I was positive. Felt like crap most of last week, though each day showed some improvement. Get lots of rest, drink plenty, & be sure to eat something. Right now I’m left with this cough, which is quite annoying and I tire easily.. I’m hoping you all feel better soon & things get back to …well…whatever is your normal.

    Thanks for all your well wishes! The fam is doing great! There are some lingering coughs and head congestion, but the worst symptoms are gone. Thank goodness for the vaccines! I’m pacing myself. Resting when I need to, but other than a cough and stuffy nose, doing really, really well.
