We should be in Indianapolis tonight. We should be doing interviews and having a pre-race banquet. We should be catching up with old teammates and meeting new ones. I should be in half marathon shape, ready to cross another finish line and cheer on my fellow MS runners and supporters as they finish their races… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 9
Let’s talk about crazy COVID dreams. This is a thing. Google it. I have had wild, crazy, intense dreams the last two nights. Like, I had to convince myself they weren’t real this am. They are so intense I really don’t feel rested when I wake up. It’s just wild. Seriously, comment if this has… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 8
Well, no doubting it today. AchesHeadacheFatigue ChillsAnd fever A friend pointed this out yesterday and I think it’s an important observation: I was exposed on 10/26-28. We were unmasked, but I wouldn’t have considered us to be in close proximity. My contacts were not symptomatic at that time so they didn’t know to be concerned.… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 7
The days are starting to run together... I literally referenced an email “I sent last week” to a friend when in fact I sent it yesterday. Yesterday felt like a week ago 🤦🏻♀️. I received another text from my contact tracer: I worked from home and listened to more Christmas music. Today’s choice was For… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 6
Not a lot to report today. I worked from home, scheduled my appointment with my surgeon for the lumpectomy, and started decorating for Christmas 🎄 ♥️. Christmas 2020 has begun. I also got my first text from my contact tracer and had to answer a symptom checklist. Speaking of symptoms, still symptom free today. Here… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 5
Today has been beautiful outside. We began the morning with another run. This time the girls, Bethany and Rosie, joined us! Then we enjoyed online worship. Then we sat outside for a loooong time. My mom dropped us off some treats and I was able to talk to her from a distance! Thankful to see… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 4
Today has been the best day. Sure... it stinks to celebrate your birthday in the middle of a pandemic, while being COVID positive and under order to isolate from my family and others, but I don't know that it could have been any better. Well, a huge hug from Brian and the kids and hanging… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 3
So, this happened today. You may have some questions... let me try to answer them: Do you have any symptoms? No. Not as of 5:00 pm on October 29, 2020 :). Why did you get tested? I had two positive exposures. It was recommended that I get rapid tested just to be safe. Why are… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 1
How can it feel like this year has lasted 1000 months and flown by at the same time? My last check-up with my neurologist was in February, right before COVID and quarantine hit our state. That visit was a little disheartening and dramatic as we learned about a potential pituitary tumor (thankfully after a look… Continue reading JCV Negative and MS Check-Up!
It’s been a year, am I right? For all of us. I think once this is alllllllllll over (LORD, Jesus... please let there be an end to all this!) we won’t soon forget struggles of 2020. For me, this year began with such fresh hope. 2019 kicked my butt. I remember texting my dear friend… Continue reading Let’s cut ourselves some slack.
