Two-plus years of caution, semi-isolation, mask-wearing, vaccinations and boosters, and yet – our hero somehow managed to catch a case of Covid in March 2022. We suspect he picked it up at school, though who can say for sure?
It thankfully was very mild: one morning of a slight sore throat and a headache, mostly. But it was enough to knock him out of commission for a week, isolating in Mommy and Daddy’s room, with plenty of time for Youtube, Netflix and Nintendo. While being waited on hand and foot by his parents, bringing him all of his meals in bed.
And somehow, Mommy and Daddy managed to not catch it – we’re still not sure how.
Not that anyone wants to get Covid, of course, but this wasn’t bad. After a few days he was feeling 100%, but that darn test kept showing the faint line, so we kept up the protocols.
Finally, after a week, we got the green light to leave the house. We took it very easy, just a slow afternoon stroll down to the beach for some fresh air and people watching.
Could have been a lot worse, but we hope it never is.
