Oh wow SuZe, I didn’t know you had so many sick.  How is your sister and folks holding up?  I know this is so blasted hard on everyone!

They are still hanging in there.  Hoping this virus is over soon.

Would it be feasible for you to self quarantine for 2 weeks then go visit your parents? One of the many things I hate about all this is delaying important things.  Especially with the elderly.

Speaking of the elderly, I am one.  We are careful, masks hand sanitizing and washing, social distancing.  I am not much of an online purchaser so I have been to a few stores after carefully evaluating their safety practices.  I feel free to move away from strangers.  I have been on an airplane 4 times.  The airports and airlines have been vigilant. We go to church.  They take our temperature, we wear masks and are socially distance from all that are not family.  The only family member who has had it lives in Palm Desert, Ca and he has recovered.  I haven't seen him in over a year.  I have lost 2 brothers for non-Covid reasons and needed to travel.  When the vaccine is available for those older than 75 with co-morbidities, I will take it.  I really think my husband had it in January but it was diagnosed as the flu.  If I'm right, I was exposed then.  The damage from this virus has been so much more than Covid infections.  I won't go into all that but you all see it in your families and lives.  I pray for a better 2021 for all.

I stayed away from my mom for three months but she kept  asking for me to come so in May I did.  We discussed the risks and I see her once a month, I limit where I go the seven to ten days before I see her.  

We moved her to a ground floor apartment Oct 31, I had planned to go the next weekend to see how she was settling in but she was still staying at my sister's due to still to many things to organize at the new place.  So glad I didn't go as Tuesday I came down with Covid.

Suzi, if at all possible comfortable, wipe down your car and shoes, put on clean clothes, wash you hands as soon as you enter their home and see your parents.  Life is to short not to.

I think I was down with COVID just after Retreat last year...but I had an antibody test and they said no...but it could be the antibodies just don't last too well or the test was false negative. But...I had most of the lighter symptoms - if it wasn't COVID, it was a doozy of a cold...

That’s what I did in Sept. when I went to see my folks.  Didn’t go anywhere for 2 weeks before going.

but tonight I went to get tested as I found out I was exposed last week.  Both Dr. And expect results will be negative as I have no symptoms....but I need to be safe.  No going anywhere for 2 days now....

sigh......

Just got off the phone with Sis and she is going for a COVID test tomorrow.

She has enough symptoms the Dr wants her tested.

I hope my parents don't catch whatever it is. My Dad is severely anemic and has gone back on hospice. My Mom is eating less and less. Sis has no idea how she would have caught it - there are a bunch of medical persons that come by but no one of those has had symptoms, nor has informed her they were sick. Its a mystery at this point. 

2020 is not a good year.

oh Suze, sorry to hear this.  If you can strictly quarantine before hand, you should be able to go visit your parents.  You aren't any more risky than the health care workers.
