Covid has entered the building
Life has been chaotic for the last 72 hours. Although we’ve successfully made it 2.5 years, Covid has hit our home. What’s weird is that we’ve been super cautious and have not left the house in the last couple of weeks other than to see my brother and his family. Their PCR tests all came back negative, yet my mom was positive.
She started out with symptoms on Monday and took four rapid tests at home. They all strangely came back negative. Her PCR test said otherwise on Friday.
Upon learning her test was positive, she started quarantining in her room. Prior to that, she was doing minimal care with me and wearing a mask. I’m obviously nervous about my health but not any more nervous than I would be about another virus. I was definitely exposed.
My doctors have been contacted and told me to call immediately upon feeling symptomatic so they can put a plan into place. I guess we’ll see what happens this week. I can’t get over that we really haven’t been exposed. My guess is maybe a caregiver was asymptomatic. But my mom and I do everything together, so it’s crazy that she got it and I didn’t. Well, not yet, at least.
Do you have a plan in place if you’re exposed to Covid? If so, do you mind sharing it with me?
