Covid Spoils Thanksgiving Again
Last year Covid quarantine threw a wrench into Thanksgiving. Thankfully just a mild case we bypassed festivities regardless. This year being fully vaccinated and boosted along with hopefully having some natural immunity, Covid can shove it. Or so we thought. Although Mom, my nieces and I are vaccinated, my sister and brother-in-law are not. Vaccination views aside we figure it’s a small enough group. We’ll be good.
Yesterday Mom calls. Looks like it’ll just be her and I for Thanksgiving again. My sister’s boss is positive for Covid. Not only that, good friends of theirs have it too. That’s just too close for comfort. Plus I have my annual neurology appointment next week to continue Evrysdi. Can’t have an exposure before then.
My feelings about missing another holiday are hard to put into words. On one hand I know it’s for the safety of Mom and myself. On the other I see so many people living carefree lives not giving Covid a second thought. With my medical history I can’t do that. I guess I could, but I feel that’s being reckless.
It is thanksgiving though. So I’ll end with this. I’m thankful my sister is being upfront with their Covid exposure. I’m also thankful we’re all healthy despite having different views and not being together for the holiday.
Has Covid put a kink in your holiday plans? What are you thankful for this year?
