Jon’s had a bad reaction to one of his new medications since he started taking it a while ago. But it got worse since yesterday.
The reaction is also a symptom of Covid 19.
So when Jon called his doctor to see what he should take for it, the nurse told him he should be tested and self isolate. Jon will get tested this weekend. And I’ll isolate too, doing curbside pick-up when necessary.
Neither Jon nor I think that he has Covid 19, but the possibility is hoving closer now than it had been at the beginning of the day. At times like this, I don’t let my mind wander to the dark side. I’ll do my best to stay in the moment and make the best decisions to keep Jon, me and everyone else as safe as possible.
I know a few people who have had to isolate and quarantine. They’ve all tested negative and are back to their lives as much as anyone can be these days.
I believe it will be the same for Jon and me.
Since we’re both fortunate enough to work from home, we don’t go out a lot anyway, and always wear masks and socially distance when we do. So we’ll take it a day at a time, as so many people are doing right now. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter that people have different beliefs about the Coronavirus, we really are, all in this together.
