Update On My Sister

 As you know if you have been reading my blog for a while one of my sisters had a stroke several years ago. One side of her body does not function so she is bedridden.

Tuesday of this week she was diagnosed with COVID-19.

So far the only symptoms she feels are incredible sleepiness and thirst. When I first spoke to her she sounded so weak. That was in the afternoon. By evening when I spoke to her again she sounded stronger and said she felt better.

She said she had been moved to a quarantined room. Her roommate also tested positive as did at least two other patients. Her roommate is in the room they share. All the positives are quarantined separate and away from other patients.

My sister had received her first dose of vaccine but not the second. Now she will have to wait and probably start over.

My area will receive 30,000 doses of vaccine in a little over a week. I am in the group eligible to be vaccinated. I am going to attempt to get an appointment. Wish me luck.

Please everyone. Stay safe. Follow the guidelines to minimize the chances you will become infected. I wish you all well.

  2. I am worried that the vaccines are not working as well as they did during the trials. But I am still anxious to get one! Good luck, and prayers and hopes for your sister.

    1. I wonder about efficacy too. I decided a little protection is better than none.

  4. I'm sorry about your sister getting Covid. I'm glad to read she is not having life threatening problems. Covid is a riddle in that some people get terribly sick and others just a mild reaction. Good luck with getting the shot. I understand the shot may not totally prevent Covid but it will reduce the severity.

    We're on two waiting lists here. I had friends who were aggressive and have gotten the shot already. One friend of mine lives in a nursing home and she has already gotten both shots which makes me glad for her. We want the shot but we are cooling our heels and will get it in God's time. We pretty much stay home.

    1. I also stay home. I feel that the more of us who are vaccinated and lessen the severity the more of us will help rid the world of this scourge.

  6. Sending best wishes for your sister’s complete recovery and for you to be able to get your vaccination soon. By the time we decided rather recently to try to set up appointments for ourselves there were no more appointments to be had, seemingly, and no new shipments of vaccine in sight. We hope for the best outcome and keeping our fingers crossed.

    1. I hope for this to enough under control that vaccinations can be handled by the doctor's office. Until then I will do my part. Thank you for your wishes.
