Last weekend, also known as 100 years-ago in virus time, an out-of-town family member visited Grandpa.
After this family member spent time with 92 year-old Grandpa and The Aunts, he then traveled back home and immediately felt sick.
He was sick.
When I found out I was incensed. Even though this family member had visited only in a small gathering and even though Grandpa had not been isolating himself (he WENT TO THE GROCERY, for heaven's sake), I felt angry.
So our family member got tested. And we waited.
While we waited a million things went through my head.
In a fit of anger I yelled to Husband: WHO TRAVELS CLEAR ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO VISIT ELDERLY RELATIVES?
Husband: Everyone. Everyone does that.
Oh, right. Just recently when the world was normal, people visited.
SO, the relative does NOT have COVID-19. And Grandpa is as safe as he can be, considering that the world is not normal at all.
I'm back to blogging. Check out my earlier 2020 posts:
