Covid Was Here

I’ve been quiet lately because Covid hit our house. Only one of us was down with it and he quarantined in his room for 10 days while the rest of us stayed clear and I delivered everything he needed to his bedroom door.

I’m not surprised, as I figured it would enter my home at some point, even though we haven’t seen anyone for a bit. Well, both kids saw their dad’s family the day before my one son began symptoms and he had dinner with his dad alone at a restaurant. That’s where I’m figuring he got it with the timeline (the restaurant). But who knows…at least he’s ok now. And the rest of us stayed safe. Thank God.

Interestingly enough, none of the rest of us got it here at Chez Leeds and we were all in close contact even when he awoke with sore throat, fever of 100 and feeling yucky. We’re affectionate in our home. Hugs and a goodnight kiss happen everyday. So I’m surprised and relieved I didn’t come down with it. Whew. Let’s hope I don’t either because if Mama goes down, they’ll have to run the house and that would be interesting…LOL

I did feel poorly with a bad headache and a severe tiredness for one day last week and I was worried that it was coming…but it didn’t. Another day my other son was sick, sneezing, coughing, and a slight fever but after 2 days it was gone. So far, we’re in the clear. Fingers crossed. Interestingly, the one son who didn’t get it was away with friends skiing for 5 days the week before and I thought for sure if someone were to get it or bring it home, it would have been him and yet, he’s fine.

The home test showed the kid was negative, but the next day we got him to the dr. and when the results came back 2 days later, they were positive so I guess it just depends on when you take the test. Tomorrow begins our release from quarantine which is good. I’m tired of staying home, but we did it.

I hope you’re all doing ok! Now, to get back into the swing of life again! I can’t wait!!

    Welcome back, Janie! 🙂 When I had it last January with only mild symptoms, I went a bit stir crazy, but the house was cleaner than it had been in a LONG time 😉 I would have rather hired a housekeeper and been able to leave the house! 😉 I’m glad everyone is doing ok and that you will soon be done with quarantine!! Sending wishes for a healthy remainder of the year for you and the kiddos! ❤

        SO very glad you are all safe and well! Disinfecting and cleaning is never fun, but at least you will feel good when you’re finished with it! 😉 I’m looking forward to spring and summer when we can all get more Vitamin D therapy!! 😉 ❤ 🙂

        Me too! 🙂 I’m not looking forward to the disinfecting, but that’s part of keeping us all safe! As for the summer, oh yes, I can’t wait for Spring! (Although I do love winter and snow!) 😊💕😊❄️

    I’m glad everyone is healthy. Same thing in my household. My husband got it and I’m sure it was his birthday dinner at a very busy restaurant.

    It is strange how some will and some won’t get it. Only one in our house of 4 did and that was in the beginning before we were all vaccinated.

    This version hit the back of the throat more…so sometimes you need to swab your throat

    As far as we know, we’ve avoided it thus far, though it seems somewhat inevitable. Our son is just getting over it. Fortunately, he’s vaccinated and bounced back quickly, comparing it to a cold.

    I’m pretty sure we had it in the house over the holidays, but the timing and test availability made getting a test impossible so we never found out for certain. Thankfully, we are all vaxed and boosted, so when my daughter got it, it was on the mild side. We are constantly surrounded by those that are positive now (via the kids’ schools and work), so I have my fingers crossed that it doesn’t come to visit again in a new form. Glad you are all doing well now!
