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.
