Scuppered

Looks like Christmas is scuppered;
family gone down with the plague,
though with luck they may just have recovered
in time to give us a reprieve!

Our eldest son tested positive for COVID on Monday, having apparently picked it up at work. He and our grandson had spent Saturday afternoon with us so we were contacted as being ‘close-contacts’ with a positive case. Today our daughter-in-law has also tested positive and our grandson is showing signs. The earliest they will be given the all clear is Christmas Eve so everything is up in the air. Being fully vaccinated we don’t have to isolate (though our youngest son, who lives with us, does) but we have to do a Lateral Flow Test every day for 10 days since first contact and take reasonable precautions – so far so good!

    Speady recovery for all. Our eldest who was vacinated ended up getting Covid, having the family tested, and then his son also got it and… well now they are all healthy again. I know that our grands were schedualed for their first ‘shots’ soon. But schools here are still in the wearing of masks mode.

    May your holidays be merry and bright – and healthy! (((Hugs)))

      :-). Hopefully we’ll be clear just in time for Christmas, or at worst delay it for a day or two! Happy and healthy Christmas to you and yours.

    Oh dear. I shouldn’t smile but I hear my Grandad saying ‘keep it in the family’. It keeps on happening. Hope all well soon.
