c9: covid in the house + 2 great escapes + 1 trip to Uppsala + some random thoughts
Kids have had nothing noticeable. I had a period of achy bones and a headache, but no lung issues. Any sign of anything and we get twitchy. Hypochondria has a new meaning.
Chris finally called Sweden's 1177 health number back today. He had a few questions:
- At what point could he safely travel back to the US? 2 days after he last coughs... (whenever that will be).
- Any further testing they can do? No.
- Any testing of antibodies-- happy to be contact with researchers... No, we don't know of anyone doing that.
We're glad our family members are situated as the US shuts down day by day and have been thinking about how to support our broader communities, even from a distance.
I walked along the Fyris River, took a quick picture of my favorite building from 1666.
Explored the paths on my roller skiing, careful not to trip over rock or root. Smooth dirt path is better than gravel. Found some more secret flowers and a "secret" box- a place to write your secrets and leave them in the woods.
I'm finding it hard to remember what I was working on before... whatever before was. Small steps on projects, a reminder that everyone is struggling through a whole host of issues-- so patience for me, for them. In between bits of work, we're doing a puzzle, helping the kids, packing, cooking, and enjoying the sunshine.
