"Stay safe. Stay Healthy."
I dodged the COVID bullet, thanks to the little voice in my head.
When it became apparent how serious the COVID virus is, I went to the extreme side of caution because of my compromised lung issues. I was having my groceries delivered and rarely ventured out for several weeks.
As time went on, I tried to balance responsible caution and still lead a quality life. I wear a mask and do my own grocery shopping, and have a small bubble of friends I hang out with. I was able to golf through the summer and Fall.
In November, my step-daughter from Utah called and wanted to stay with me for a week in mid-December (last week) while she had some doctor appointments. Initially, I said yes. After doing so, I started having serious reservations because of the increase in COVID cases, and I had no idea who she had been around.
I called her and told her I didn't feel comfortable with her staying at my house. Without going into the details, suffice it to say she got mad at me, sent a few scathing messages, and hasn't spoken to me since. I considered giving in despite my concerns. I didn't. I held firm.
I received a call this morning from my other step-daughter informing me her sister has tested positive for Covid AND has pneumonia. OMG, Chills went down my spine. I was so glad I listened to that little voice in my head and held firm. Had I let her stay with me, I could very well be sick right now too! I pray she recovers without lingering effects.
Let me tell you. COVID is real. I know several people who have had family members die. It is very sad.
Stay safe out there!
