My son, Navy has Covid19. I\’m shocked, but then again, he does work in a medical facility. Even he said he was shocked that he had it because he wears the complete gown, masks, face shield, and the N-95 face mask. So does his wife Sara, who is a nurse at the hospital in town. Navy said, he pretty much goes to work and comes home – gets gas, goes to Safeway, and he always wears a mask. This stuff is contagious.
He says, there is an outbreak at the Veterans Home – mostly employees but 2 elderly have come down with it. One in my FIL\’s neighborhood. (They call them neighborhoods – but they are more like a \”ward\” or a \”wing\”) Sara mentioned a 102 yr old lady had covid in her ward – and she survived. That\’s amazing.
Sara\’s hospital told her she had a choice – to isolate herself from her husband for 2 weeks or take the time off. She chooses to take the time off – knowing she will obviously get it. She goes back Dec. 4.
Back in April, I knew no one who had it – Here it is, mid. Nov. and I\’ve personally known my Alabama family all got it – that includes my brother, my nephew\’s father-in-law died from it back in April. He was in Oklahoma. Now my son, and one of his friends, and a cousin in another state.
Thanksgiving is still up in the air. I\’m willing to have Foodie over and Char – It would still be under the state guidelines. Weather permitting, we\’d sit on the covered patio and make it all warm and cozy. Have a fire going in the fire pit and a propane heater, if need be. I\’ll make up a plate for both Navy and Sara to bring over and drop it off.
Last night I tossed and turned. I know, he\’ll be okay. He says he is extremely fatigued and his body aches – he has lost his sense of smell in 1 nostril and has slightly lost his sense of taste. No fever, no coughing.
So today I packed up a Care package for him to drop off at his front doorstep. Just grabbed some of his convenient favorites:
Lipton Chicken Noodle Soup
Canned Chicken and Dumplings
Hungry Man, Beef pot roast soup,
Stagg Beef Silverado chili.
A big soup mug
1 snickers candy bar
a travel Packet of Tylenol
and a Rubrics cube.
Placed it in a Dollar Tree crate along with a Get Well card.
