This post has been shared on The Sunday Post, a weekly recap from so many amazing blogs is hosted by Kimberly over at Caffeinated Reviewer.
Quarantine life continues. We had a small scare as one of our friends is sick and being tested for COVID-19. Fortunately, she’d been off work for a week before her potential contact (with a doctor’s office nurse who was asymptomatic until a random sweep of the office personnel was done when she became sick), but it still sucks for her as she is now in total lockdown until she gets the results back. This virus is so insidious. You can have it and have not one single symptom yet pass it along to someone else. Wash those hands, keep a social distance. Mask up, people. Yeah, it’s not comfortable but you’re protecting those you love and perfect strangers – and yourself -from this dangerous virus. Not ranting, just pleading… be safe, and keep those around you safe as well.
In other home news, regarding my son. He’s begun a new liquid oral medicine, Evrysdi (pronounced Ev-Riz-Dee) in place of the spinal shot with Spinraza (that nine-inch needle to the spinal column was always scary and painful… but it was the only treatment, at the time, for Spinal Muscular Atrophy). I’m comfortable mentioning it as he’s shared this information with his Twitter followers and is truly all about helping others with information that might be helpful to them or someone they might know. Any new direction in medical treatment is always a bit scary, yet the results from this have been good. The chance to build stronger muscle with life-altering possibilities is something that has to be tried. If this daily medicine will save his life, allow the possibility of affecting the strength of muscle… then I’m all for it, even as I hide that motherly concern behind a positive smile. (I’m a mom, it’s part of my job description to worry about… anything.) 🙂
