Dang, I have been so careful but got exposed to COVID anyway.  I don't have it but just exposed.

Oh, no! I pray that you don't actually have it.




Ack, bummer!  Hope your quarantine goes well and uneventful.

Aunt Margaret's buddies is bugging me to bring them more fabric.  I am trying to figure out a way to go up and back without exposing anyone! Probably in Aug or Sept. Still working on a pickup load, but am getting close!

Stay safe!!

I'm pretty sure I won't get it because I don't think he was sick at the time and we were sitting more than 6 feet apart the whole time.  A week has gone by so if I don't get sick in the next week I probably dodged a bullet.

Carolyn I am so sorry. I have been trying to go out as little as possible myself again because this monster just keeps growing again. I am so over this and just want to go out and enjoy the world again! I do hope that Jason's FIL will recover well and quickly, do let us know.

Sorry so you might have been exposed.

THEORY an article by a U.K. Doctor or scientist and he had a theory that gargling with mouth wash might help slow the spread....virus attaches to saliva gland cells to enter body.....mouthwash contains xyz.  

So i put mouthwash in my bath that I wash up in after being out.

And many are saying it happens within 5 days.  That’s what scares me about schools - by the time a positive test comes back, more will have already spread it without knowing.

DIL has tested positive although she has no symptoms yet.  The two step-granddaughters are now sick and Jason sounds terrible.  He thinks it is his annual hayfever but regardless they are all under quarantine now, as am I.  Jason was at my house on Friday and he and I were together in a car running some errands.  Breanna, my other granddaughter was over there all day on Saturday so she is also quarantined.

DIL works in a hospital in El Dorado in the HR and a coworker came to work sick and didn't tell anyone.  She thinks that's how she got infected.  Since she works in a hospital she was able to get a rapid test.

So sorry to hear about your family’s illness. Hugs and prayers to all for a speedy and complete recovery.

Oh my gosh.   It's unbelievable how fast it spreads.  Zahn's mom works at a grocery store and she says people even come in there coughing and obviously sick. 

I'm praying for you Carolyn, and for your family too!  All good wishes for a good outcome.
