well, it happened...

July 14, 2022

well, it happened.  after over two years of successfully avoiding it, cov-d finally made it's way into our home.  i'm not going to lie, i was so bummed!  i honestly hoped that we would be able to avoid it forever but i guess it was only a matter of time.  i've heard people saying online that there's going to come a point where we all are going to come into contact with it and this was our turn.  in hindsight, my anxiety about it was way worse and i'm grateful for that.

it started with junior feeling so sick one day that he went home early from work.   he had been having symptoms that were progressively getting worse as the days went on. when he told me he felt worse than he's felt in a really long time, i knew this wasn't just a normal cold.   i took his temperature and sure enough it was 102.5!  i brought out one of those at home tests that i had ordered from the government and had him take it.  it came back positive.  

somehow or another, when i tested myself, it was negative.  i was shocked! we did everything in our power to keep it that way while i helped nurse him back to health.  i'm all about holistic healing (with the help of modern medicine, of course) so i made sure to keep him well fed and well hydrated while on his prescribed medicine from his doctor.  i also loaded him up with all of the vitamins and wellness shots, anti-inflammation remedies, immune system boosters and over the counter medicines i could get my hands on.  i cooked us breakfast, lunch and dinner for days while sanitizing our entire apartment multiple times a day until he started to feel better.  i was exhausted and honestly i can't even begin to imagine how he felt.  (i knew he felt really, really bad because he didn't even have the energy to complain!)

i'm happy to be on the other side of it and am just so grateful it wasn't worse for him.  now i need to do additional research about lingering symptoms.  i think it's important to make sure we do everything in our power to combat any long term effects he may have.  i also want to get my blood tested for antibodies since i didn't get sick.  i got blood work done several months ago my results were negative which means i had never came into contact with the virus.  i'm curious to know if i was truly able to avoid it while junior had it or if i was one of those people that are a carrier and got no symptoms.  we shall see!!
