Too close again :( Our youngest grandson (T is 9) was tested Monday for Covid as he has a sore throat and stubborn cough. They tested for strep throat 1st. It was not strep. Ran a Covid test that Thank God came back negative today. He has asthma so it was a worry.

A conversation with Dr. Kelly Victory
This explains the high numbers recorded. What I hadn't realised is even a flu is normally connected to covid too.
Last year I had the worst ever virus I've ever had and slept and drank fluids right through it.

You must be so relieved by that really good news.

We are now having advice here in fighting the lockdown belly :) . I think I've gained at least three through all this

@Marie2020 YES, I have also gained weight :( The struggle is real!
This lockdown has completely changed a lot of lives in so many ways. I have to really push myself to go to the shop these days. Then I think of all those that found it hard to socialise in the first place :(

On the weight gain I'm going to have to kick off the chocolate habit of mine because I cant keep living with this treble belly :)

I lost my dad and grandmother last month. Grandma was 92, dad 62. Dad was grandmas primary caregiver, lived next door, and was so careful to try and keep them both safe. He retired to avoid the exposure (worked at a casino) and started ordering groceries delivered, disinfecting them, stopped trips to the hardware store, wore a mask when he had to go out. He temporarily rented another unit in their retirement park for himself because my mother in law has been working this whole time (works with the public, a lot of exposure). They lived in AZ- where the spread has been bad. Still no clue how they got it, and I guess it really doesn’t matter. Grandma passed away, alone in the hospital, two days before dad was admitted. I know he blamed himself until he passed. He texted me goodbye before he went on a ventilator- which kept him going less than a day. No funerals to attend. I can’t help my mother in law with all that needs to be done when someone passes. I haven’t been able to hug my brother who lives in OR or process it with anyone. I’ve spent a lot of time poking around outside trying to find a little peace. It hurts every time I snap a photo I would have sent to him or see something cool outside. I cried like a child while replacing my toilet last week because dad taught me to be handy and was always proud of me for doing things myself. Time will help I’m told. I think it’s gonna be a long while before I’m me again.

Oh, that's sad.

I am sorry.

Remember to take good care of yourself. Your family, past and right now, would want you to. We may be back to some more normal times before too long.

Lockdown belly... I think you've just created a meme. ;) The only thing saving me from that fate is my garden. Maybe there was a silver lining to all those weeds after all.
