COVID Kindness

The House family remains under quarantine. Kara is going on day 7 of her COVID diagnosis and I’m trailing by a few days. Here’s an update:

Fatigue is the biggest symptom Kara is dealing with right now. Her cough seems better and she’s resting, frequently. I feel a little better. No temperature, a slight cough now and then. I have more energy than I did two days ago, but a little nasal congestion today. We both have our senses of smell and taste and my favorite smell is that of cleaning products, as we sanitize often. We are keeping in touch with doctors to update them.

The kids, who tested negative, are coping very well with isolation from their parents, a frustrating situation. They basically stay in their rooms away from us and we communicate via FaceTime and text. They’re old enough to take care of themselves in terms of meals and things like that and they are practicing the importance of sanitizing. Their wish is that we can spend Christmas together. Fingers crossed!

Speaking of food, we will not go hungry thanks to the kindness of friends. Melissa Cole dropped off an amazing dinner from the Pasta Place and Beanz and the New England Pasta Company in Avon along with some homemade treats. It was delicious! Later that evening Bruce and Cheryl DePrest came by with some of Cheryl’s confectionary creations. Just this morning our friends the Kabakoffs delivered bagels and donuts. The kids reaction: “we like all the food during this quarantine thing!”

A doctor neighbor of ours dropped by to check on us, and give us some advice.

We are so grateful.
