Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe I am so sorry to hear about this. I am wishing your parents the best and speediest recovery possible. I know this has been very scary and you are handling it far better than I could. Please know I am thinking of you and your family often and sending as much positivity and love as possible.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Thank you @sprocketta, it has certainly been  very trying for everyone. It will be a relief (and I cannot wait!) when this is finally behind me, but in the meantime I am learning to see the bright spots in the muck. 

 

My PM limit hit me this evening, I will try again in a bit.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe I know this sounds ridiculous, but you should be proud of how you are handling this. It's crazy stressful and you're keeping it together.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

My mind has pretty much had to go into auto-pilot mode, @sprocketta. I have been forgetting simple/small things so much in the past few days now I have to remind myself it’s just stress. But I feel a little all over the place right now.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I'm so happy for you @eshoe ! I really hope that the antibody serum helps him out as much as it did my Dad. I hope they're both feeling great soon 💞.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Thank you, @niki172. He is still very weak but I expect that to be the case for awhile. He was out laying a new deck for two days before he came down with it, so he was already physically taxed. They both need to be at home resting, which is what I hope they will do now.

 

I was so encouraged by your story about your Dad, thank you for sharing and helping me over the hump of a few rough days:)

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe my Dad (who is a work alcoholic - like it's seriously ridiculous) was so tired he didn't even get on his laptop to work from home he just slept and slept (kinda like Jenny in Forest Gump). I hope both your parents do the same as everyone knows rest is best when your body is going through an illness. It sounds like they're both on their way to a speedy recovery and I'm so very happy for you and I'm glad they got the care that they needed ❤️.

I'm so glad I could be of some help to you - if there's anything I can help you with please let me know. Even with my Mom being negative it was still upsetting to me as I made her stay home while I went and got groceries etc just in case so she didn't have so much on her plate either. I think as kids we grow up thinking our parents are like super heroes and then something like this comes along and shatters that image in our minds. Don't worry - I know in my heart of hearts that your Mom and Dad will be back to normal soon 😘.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@niki172my Dad is a workaholic, too! It has only been in the last few years that he stopped waking up around 3:30/4am. I don’t know how he had the energy. I don’t think he has any choice but to rest now💗

 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe That's so great to hear! Sorry I missed your earlier post!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Awww @Samtian thank you but no need to apologize. How are you feeling these days?

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe I've been ok.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

It is @Buootiful, it is good to hear and now they just need to keep moving forward in the right direction. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

That's great, @eshoe! Best of luck to your mom and dad! 💖

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

It is @curlychiquita! Thank you very much:)

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe  Aww I’m so glad that your parents are feeling better. I hope they both fully recover. Prayers for your family!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Thank you @ather, I am a little relieved and hope they continue to improve from here on out.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe @That’s good news. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

It is very good news, @SportyGirly125

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Receiving BIC notifications has been a very big bright spot today!!! 

Just posting here because you all understand. My parents were both just diagnosed with COVID and my Dad is now hospitalized with pneumonia. Reports change throughout the day, and the most recent is that his oxygen levels are again in the 80’s. I last saw them in October. We dropped some things off for him at the hospital today, but of course no visiting. It is frustrating and heartbreaking, on so many levels. Thankfully the hospital is not overwhelmed and he is receiving good care. He has a flip phone with no texting capabilities...which is especially difficult now, as communication is sporadic. It’s hard on everyone.

 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@eshoe ,

Hugs! ❣️❣️❣️ My thoughts and prayers are with you and your parents!   I hate that you are a witness that the pandemic is not over yet, despite rumors to the contrary.  I hope and pray that your father and mother will both be better very soon.  The medical teams have learned a lot about treating COVID patients in the past year.  Separation from your loved ones when they are very sick is brutal.

Maybe your Dad will be able to talk to you on his flip phone.  I hope so!
