Thankyou Lizzie.

I keep popping in to NS throughout the day, but I'm afraid I haven't got any staying power at the moment, This virus has really knocked us about. I don't know if it  our age but there is a lot more to it than we expected.

 

Our daughter/granddaughter are both fine now, but we are far from it. Chris is now on antibiotics for chest infection. The coughs are horrendous, there is no let up day and night. We have no strength between us, can't even walk from one room to another without getting exhausted.

 

We are just hoping for some improvement soon, it would have  been  the supposed end of our  isolation on Tuesday, but we have been told that while we still have symptoms we must stay in. That is no problem, because we haven't got the strength to go anywhere 

Look after yourselves Miducks.x

So sorry carni that you are both so incapacitated by this horrible virus.  You must be really fed up with it all...

just keep hydrated and sleep

whenever you want.  Forget about the difference between day and night.  If you can’t sleep during part of the night, get up and watch some rubbish TV or something.   This WILL pass eventually.  Thinking of you both xx

I'm sure the improvement will arrive before too long.  You're still posting on here so that's a good sign !

Little update on CV..At 10.30pm last night I had to send for an Ambulance, Chris was struggling to breathe and was getting panicky. The Paramedics were brilliant, they decided to take him in after tests showed oxygen levels low. They suspected a small clot had formed apparently, this can happen with Covid. I wasn't allowed to go with him as I am positive as well. He was brought home at 4.30am, still coughing. No let up still. I am not as ill as Chris but still very much sofa bound!

I hope my posts can be a constant reminder to you all that anyone can get ill, if reading makes you all extra careful, that is my aim.

So sorry that you had such a scary time with Chris last night, but pleased he’s  home again now.   It must have been horrible not being able to go with him in the ambulance.   I hope his breathing will soon get easier and that your energy levels will rise as well.   Love to you both xx

 We have had a lot of offers of help. Daughter is cooking daily to tempt us to eat, more often than not, we put it in the fridge until next day. Messages getting to us to phone neighbours for any reason. I think it took a few days for people to realise we haven't been seen cycling for a while. We are blessed with good neighbours and caring family.

Heyup Carni. Glad that you are staying as positive as ever and just hoping that Chris has improved.

It is said that neighbours are a reflection of yourself.

Carni.. I was thinking about you and Chris while I was jet washing the back patio today...

I'm sure that means you are both getting better.

Love from Col and family.

Carni , this virus is affecting us all in one way or another. I know we are all thinking about you and wish you both a speedy recovery. The awful thing about this is we don't have any physical contact with those near and dear. You are very lucky to have neighbours who are watching over you and of course your daughter who cooks for you. Giving her a hug is impossible but I'm sure she can feel one from you. I see my daughter every day but as she is in contact with her business partner ( ex husband who remarried and has children) she is taking no chances and wears her mask and stays a distance from us. Hard not to give her a kiss and hug, but she insists she's only doing what she has to do. So Carni I know exactly how you feel, she's your daughter and you are her mum, the virus shouldn't intervene but it has. Keep thinking positive and try to relax even if that's hard to do. Everything will turn out well. Love and hugs to you both.

One thing I have noticed is that there isn’t anything about the virus in schools on the news. Nottinghamlive has a list of schools that have reported outbreaks in Nottinghamshire (over 90 and counting) but there doesn’t seem to be any statistics nationally or local breakdowns (Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire etc.). There seem to be statistics for everything else but not this.
