Where have we been?
Home. We’ve all been doing NOTHING since Saturday. This is quite possibly the longest amount of time we’ve all spent at home with each other – EVER. We’ve been quarantining together because – you guessed it – we all have COVID.
We were so darn close to be vaccinated and putting this all behind us. Thankfully we haven’t seen my mom at all so there’s no chance we gave it to her. We aren’t sure exactly where we got it from. We all came down with it around the same 12 hours.
Carver and Gannon are both on steroids because they BOTH got croup from it – Gannon is wheezing too so we’ve got to keep a closer eye on him – he is the “underlying conditions” kind of kid. Craig is doing okay – considering his history of asthma I’m nervous to see how he will fair in a week or so.
We are all achy and sore and feverish and tired. Lots of naps, lots of snuggles. We’ve been watching the Queen’s Gambit which I highly highly highly recommend.
I’m off of work through the 20th, return on the 21st with full pay which is amazing and we are so grateful for. Just gotta keep truckin.
The most frustrating part of all of the symptoms is not being able to taste or smell. I made the world’s nastiest smoothie – cauliflower, cabbage, some random flavored yogurt, water, protein powder, whatever produce I could find in the fridge and made it into a smoothie and drank it because I can’t taste or smell a thing. Where as I would love to cook and bake and try new recipes, now is not the time.
Carver and Gannon were essentially raising themselves yesterday because we felt so lousy and they had an infinite amount of energy. Here they are playing together:
Carver still checks in with his class every day via zoom – his teacher is just stellar. I can’t say how much we appreciate her and her dedication to keep Carver involved. Carver was so excited to show Gannon his classroom – here they are:
Anywho, that’s where we are and where we will be until the foreseeable future. Praying that we didn’t give it to anyone, praying we make it through okay, I’m especially worried about Gannon. We will see what happens. Thanks for checking in!
