When Covid started, I was proactive. I made sure when everything was closed that my kids and I stayed inside and away from large groups. My brother and his wife had just had a baby. I wanted to visit, but I didn’t want to bring the virus with me. So I avoided visiting family and crowds of people the best I could. I even made my own disinfectant wipes as the stores were running out of them. I did everything I could.
When I could get the vaccine, I got both shots and the booster. I made everyone in my house get vaccinated and still… still, everyone in my family tested positive. I couldn’t believe it! How could it be positive?
I couldn’t believe how sick I got. Covid hit one of my hard and he needed breathing treatments. My son was so sick. People told me to isolate him when he was sick, but how could I do that to him? He was so sick and needed me. I can only imagine if we did not have the vaccines how sick we could have been.
A special thank you to my friends and family who checked on me and my family during this time. It made me feel loved to have so many people checking on me. Thank you so much.
