My 33-year-old daughter has COVID.

She received both vaccinations and the booster. She and her boyfriend are both pharmacists, and they started coughing a lot so chose to get tested immediately. She texted us after getting the rapid COVID test and said it was negative. She then had the PCR test. Early this morning she texted to say that it was positive. Her boyfriend has type 1 diabetes, so I am especially concerned about him. He has received both vaccinations and his booster, We havent heard yet whether or not his test was positive, but I am assuming that it will be.

I am worried, of course. They have both been so smart, so careful, always wearing their masks, limiting exposure to others. They live 600 miles away in Florida, so I can't just hop in my car and take them my homemade chicken soup (not that soup has any magical healing properties). I just want to do something....but I don't even know what that would be. I know that chances are good that they will not end up hospitalized, but COVID offers us no guarantees. I would change places with her in a heartbear if I could.

My 38-year-old niece and her boyfriend just both tested positive for COVID, too. Apprently, neither of them have been vaccinated. I definitely am worried about them.

I am going to be positive in my texts to my daughter and hide my anxiety. She doesnt need to be concerned about her mom's fears, that's for sure.

I know that many DUers have family and friends who have tested positive for COVID. My heart goes out to each and every one of them. We are all living with so much uncertainty in terms of how a person's immune system will handle the virus. I guess that's my big concern.

Anyway, thank you for reading. I just had to share the news with people I care about. DUers have always been so kind and supportive to me.

Hugs to all......
