He's taken a job working from home. My daughter-in-law is a nurse and has the vaccine. They are careful because of Iris. Even though they live in a very densely populated city, one of those areas where the numbers are high, I guess it just stopped being one of those things that I worried about.
So I was a little shocked when I got the text.
I texted back, asking if he had any respiratory symptoms.
He has a cough starting and his chest hurts when he coughs.
'He's married to a nurse,' I tell myself. 'She's worked with enough covid cases that she knows what to look for.' It's true.
She's borrowing a pulse oximeter from another nurse. Covid had gone through her family before Christmas, and she had developed pneumonia, so she bought one to stay on top of her own situation. She managed her pneumonia at home.
So Dylan's a young fella.
He's married to a nurse.
He'll be fine.
I'll be happy when these days are over.
