I got Covid!
DH has been in Memory care for 5 weeks. I had been over there everyday to eat lunch with him and also to check that they are giving him the correct medications etc. He has fallen 2 x since he was there and had to go one time to the ER to get stitches over his eye.
I have been under such stress and felt very tired and Monday I took a Covid test and tested positive. I am on Paxlovid. Very weak with sore throat,congestion, headache, muscle pain etc. Of course I can't visit DH. This just seems like the final blow to me and I am praying he doesn't pass away soon because at this point I am too exhausted to even plan his funeral. He is 92 and I am 82.
Elshack sorry to hear you've got covid on top of all your others troubles. Your husband is in good hands. Take the rest you need and recover. I am praying for you both.
I am sorry this has happened to you. I hope you are feeling better soon, but beware not to overdo it. Hopefully, you have someone to wait on you for a few days. My daughter, a healthy, active, fully vaxxed 40-something contracted COVID in the Spring and it knocked her for a loop. Be sure you are fully recuperated; your DH is in good hands, you take care of yourself.
