A Week in the Life of Dollycas

To say this was a crazy week is a huge understatement. The little’s daycare shut down for 10 days to do some “deep, heavy cleaning”. Charlotte tested positive for RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection) and COVID19 although the COVID test may have been a false positive due to her age and the symptoms are similar to RSV. Thomas tested positive for RSV. Nana and Papa became a daycare for the week and other than a morning cough they sure didn’t act sick. Daughter #2 ended up with a really bad cold which could have been RSV but tested negative for COVID. On top of that, I woke up extra early on Monday with a stomach bug that carried into Tuesday. Due to all the illness in the house, we had to cancel my wound care appointment for the week. Kaden and Natalie were here when the results were coming in and had to miss a few days of school but never showed any symptoms of either illness. Kaden quarantined with us to keep Remi safe until Thursday and was a huge help with Charlotte and Thomas.

This past Wednesday I remembered my dad on what would have been his 97th birthday. Cancer took him from us back in 1988 and he has been on my mind a lot during my own cancer fight. He knew something was wrong but never went to the doctor until it was too late. In fact, he died just 2 short weeks after he was diagnosed. He was a strong man, he met with friends and family up to the day he died and even planned his own funeral.

Then on Saturday, it was Daughter #1’s birthday. I was able to see her on Thursday when she picked up Kaden but we talk or text almost every day. My late-night reading hours mesh well with her working the third shift so it is not unusual to have a message string that goes between midnight and 2 am at least once during the week.

I love my children and grandchildren so much but thankfully the daycare reopens tomorrow and Daughter #2 feels well enough to return to work and things get back to normal around here, me, Mr. Dollycas, and the animals. I also hope the daycare has learned a lesson because way to many kids got sick this time around.

  1. What a week you have had! Glad everyone is on the mend. I am sure you will be glad to have your house back to normal. As fun as it is to have your kids and grandkids around, it is also so nice to have things back to normal.

    What a nice picture of your dad. I don’t think we every stop missing them.

    Hope your upcoming week is much quieter!

  2. Oh my goodness! What a crazy week you’ve had. All the sicknesses…glad everyone is on the mend.

    My dad is 94 and is still with me, and I can’t tell you how glad I am to have him in my life at my age. He just seems to get better and better with age.

    Our book group members had never heard of cozy mysteries, and I helped explain the concept to them last week. It really surprised me.
