COVID cousins.

Having been in contact with someone who today is hospitalized with COVID symptoms, I stayed home on Tuesday, thinking I better do the same on Wednesday.

Relax, I’ve taken steps to be tested.

The individual we came in contact with is tougher than nails and stronger than a bull. He’s now flat on his back – defenseless like he’s never been before.

Of course he had no idea he had infected us. He always wears a mask but took it off in our home. Hey, we’re family, right?

Right.

We’re not alone in dealing with the pandemic firsthand; hundreds in the state and thousands in the country are contracting the virus daily, if not on the hour.
