Day 7 was long. Main issues were the coughing and the tiredness. I finished the 2nd Charity shop jigsaw - turns out no pieces missing! But if you look closely you will see the piece that somehow ended up in the washer! I found it in the washer door seal at the weekend. I think it must have dropped in the pocket of my cardigan when I was sorting pieces. Glad I saved it because I’d have been very annoyed had I thrown it and then realised! I’ve sellotaped it in for the next time it’s done! Probably by my sister!
As the HG went to bed straight after tea feeling rubbish and ill, like he had been complaining about feeling crap end day 5 and day 6, I stayed downstairs a while and promptly fell fast asleep - think it did me good being propped up. I think I woke up at 11.30pm and dragged myself up to my bed.
Day 8 - the trials really begin. The HG has tested positive.
|His n hers !|
To be honest I’m amazed it’s been this long. Even though I’ve been really careful to keep out of the way, sleeping in a different room etc I’m not thinking what a waste of time! So now we have both got to try and keep and 24 safe. I’ll be watching the HG like a hawk though with his one kidney. Apart from the cough and the horrid taste in my mouth and a headache I feel fine now. I’ve done nothing except visit the bathroom and get in my bed! It’s lovely and I’ve missed it! I’ve let my boss know and said that because I am positive and still feel rough then I’m definitely not going to be in this week now. She can then plan and get sorted too. Fingers crossed the HG gets away lighter than me! The curse of the self employed is no work, no money and times are lean as he was off before Christmas for a couple of days with his back, then off over Christmas and now sodding Covid.
Will report back on day 9.
Oh double bother!ReplyDelete
Hope your HG gets over the worst quickly and you feel really well on day 9
He doesn’t feel as bad as I was, he said. He’s fast asleep now. It’s such a glorious morning - a shame to bit stuck indoors! Thank you for the well wishes xxDelete
Oh no! Please give HG my best wishes. XReplyDelete
I will do, he is sleeping now.Delete
Just spotted the puzzle piece...how sad am I for trying to hunt it out! Yes the tiredness...don't expect that one to leave your side for quite some time. xReplyDelete
Not sad - I would have done the same, so in very good company! I will heed your words re the tiredness.Delete
You've been so very careful but it's such an infectious virus. I'm very, very glad you are feeling better now though. Go steady and I hope HG doesn't have it so badly.ReplyDelete
It almost was inevitable! It’s just futile to be enraged but I am really annoyed with COVID!Delete
Tis a blow that HG has tested positive m'dear, like you say fingers crossed that he will not be too badly affected. Have total sympathy with you both being self employed myself, the last two months and some have been very hard financial for us due to the snap. But take it from me you will both cope m'dear (trust me, I am a gardener).ReplyDelete
On the positive side it does sound that you are picking up a little yourself o short one. I always find being propped upright helps ease a bad cough somewhat (as does a couple of very stiff hot toddies).
Thank you O Welsh one! Do you know, I have never ever had a hot toddy!Delete
By Thor's beard woman, tis mankind's first and best defence against any illness (especially man flu)Delete
Oh no! It was to be expected I suppose, hope he doesn't feel too bad. It's strange how some people escape it, even living in the same house. My eldest granddaughter (8) got it but her mum, dad and younger sister escaped. Yet, my other granddaughter (18 months) got it quite a few days after her mum & dad had it. My son in law had it a while before daughter and youngest granddaughter succumbed. Me, husband, my mum & dad have escaped completely. Husband is having his op today - so far so good, not cancelled, etc. My daughter has returned to school today - still coughing but negative. She says it's a nightmare (she teaches in a secondary school) - she's teaching in the gym - lots of classes in there - and most of the teenage kids are refusing to wear masks.ReplyDelete
Our very good friends all hadDelete
It at their house except one daughter, so I’m holding out hope for our son! Long may the four of you be free from it! X
Also, bloody teenagers!Delete
Very glad you are now on the mend! I have followed all your recent posts and you have indeed had a hard time of it. Sorry though HG has gone down with it too now and hope he does only get a mild bout. I so know about the SE curse! I was self-employed for 35 years and being off sick was far too expensive and always meant a loss of paying students especially during my last years of employment. Take care. Amanda xReplyDelete
ThankyouAmanda, your photos in your recent post lifted my soul xDelete
Congrats on finding that last piece (small victories!). Sorry about the husband, but maybe he won't have such a bad time of it, like you had. Everyone's different. Here, we can't even get ahold of rapid tests, so it is said that if you have symptoms, just assume you have it and isolate. I am glad you are starting to feel better! -JennReplyDelete
There is a real shortage here too of those tests.Delete
Glad you're feeling better, but sorry your HG now has it. It was our daughter who got it first in our house, then me 5 days later, and husband 2 days after me.ReplyDelete
It ia just so annoying!Delete
I'm glad that the worst is over for you but sorry HG has got it now, I have just heard from son number three, he has it now and is feeling rubbish, Dil still testing negative but I think it's only a matter of time. It's his birthday on Saturday too, I bet it's one birthday he wont forget. You should really have a hot toddy! take care.xxReplyDelete
Hope your son gets over it quickly.Delete
I don't think you could have been more careful so it's a shame HG has tested positive. Fingers crossed he won't be as poorly as you've been. Glad to read you're feeling a little better, let's hope the worst of it is over for you now. xxReplyDelete
Thankfully he isn't as bad as me but he is more bunged up than I amDelete
