I just sort of disappeared from here a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t disappear on purpose!
3 weeks ago, this past Saturday, I started getting what I thought was a cold. Then everyday after that, someone else in the house got sick. That’s 5 adults.
Life with Linda – The Sick Edition
My son, who doesn’t live here full time, got sick too, and his work required him to go get tested. Well, he tested positive for covid.
Ugh! He got his results on a Sunday, so on Monday, the rest of us loaded in the car and got tested. Yep, all 5 of us tested positive. Ugh!
The first week honestly felt just like a little cold. It didn’t stop anyone from working, or anything else. But when that second week started, it was brutal. I was shocked at the nausea and vomiting, that you don’t hear that much about. Thankfully, the rest of the family didn’t get those as bad as I did.
It’s now been about 3 weeks that every has been sick. After missing 2 weeks of work, my husband started back today for a half day. He was required to go get tested again, and be negative. Thankfully, he is.
Everyone is still weak, and very tired. Some still have a cough. but we are all recovery. I am extremely grateful, and thankful, that my 85 year old mother virtually sailed through this virus. She had no complications, and didn’t get as sick as the rest of us. So thankful!
My heart breaks for those that I know that have lost a loved one, I myself have lost relatives to this virus, and those that I know that are in the hospital now.
Look for a post later this week with what I did ahead of time that made these 3 weeks of sickness easier to get through.
