Worry


I spent the past two days worrying. Monday Josie had a fever and sniffles so our sleepover and Tuesday playdate were cancelled. Probably just a cold, but these days . . .


Yesterday Claui took her to the pediatrician for a Covid and a strep test---it wasn't till five that I found out the tests were negative.


Just a garden variety cold, hallelujah! She'll stay out of preschool and I'll have her today.


We should have been past this ever present worry. If people hadn't refused the vaccine and acted irresponsibly all summer, allowing the Delta variant to emerge . . . 

And why in the name of sweet reason do the same people who refuse the vaccine because 'it hasn't been tested enough,' happily swallow a veterinary medicine, untested on humans?

Shaking my head but, oh so happy it's just a cold Josie has.

UPDATE: As of Wednesday morning, Josie feels much better but her parents have the cold. They are staying home and keeping her there so maybe John and I can avoid the infection.

I'm happy it was just a cold, too.

we go through the same woories here for granddaughters when they get sick with the same. Not being vaccinated we always have that fear of Covid for them. Glad to hear Josie just has a cold.

Whew, that's a worry that won't be with you now, being tested is a great relief these days. Getting test result back quickly is sometimes not easy for some of us, so I'm glad you all could find out right away. Sorry little one is feeling bad...I know even having a cold isn't any fun.

As of Wed. morning Josie feels MUCH better--but her parents both have the cold now and are keeping her home with them so John and I don't catch it.

Glad about the diagnosis. You pretty well know that a cold will only go so far. You don't know that with the other.

I would say that the vax has now been tested on 100's of millions of people. SO, it's just an excuse, and a very poor one at that.
