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.

Oh no Suze......I hate hearing these things!  My DD tested positive!  She has not had a fever, just cold symptoms, but how frustrating as she has been super careful also!  Her boyfriend now has to quarantine and miss work next week.

i also went last night and got tested.  I hav3nt seen DD as she is 2 hours away.  But , I got some Exposure  at work last week. I have no symptoms and am not to worried, but, on the off chance I might, I will be staying in!

this year is ending in a yucky manner?  This sucks!

Suzi, sorry to hear this.

Covid is unpredictable, the week before I got sick the only place I had been was our small town grocery store, wore mask and talked to no one.  DH who was out and about with his job got it from me.

Thanks for all of the prayers. I am sure they will help. Keep good thoughts that my  parents don't get this virus from my Sis - they are very frail.

a pox upon this blasted virus...

my Sis is so sick... she has help M-F  9am to 1pm from a caregiver...the hospice folks are super busy and have no one to send, she does not want to ask the caregiver place for more help for fear they will pull the current caregiver...

sigh... my niece wants to come from Arizona to help but I don't think that is a good idea - niece has been sick a lot this last year.

Mama can no longer stand....Daddy is moaning almost non-stop...both of them need help toileting...and Sis is almost passing out trying to stand herself...

Any ideas on how to get her some help?

That sounds like criminal negligence to me, like the hospice folks have taken on more clients than they can serve.  For shame. Perhaps it is time to fire that hospice group and send these elderly people by ambulance to the Emergency Room where a social worker will find better care for them.

And don't tell us that mom and dad don't want to be removed from their house. Mom and dad are not capable of making good decisions now and should be overruled no matter how heartbreaking it is for the rest of the family.

I'm almost eighty years old and I've seen lots of stubborn old folks resist what is best for them ... my day will probably come someday and I hope I will accept it when it happens and not cause great grief to my DD.
