I can't tell you how old these little chalk pilgrims are. My daughters made them in grade school. :) My oldest daughter Angie has them. She put them out every year. I did not see them this year, as there was no gathering in our family. Each daughter had their own small group, four or five. Ted and I had planned on staying home.
But Ted spent his Thanksgiving in the hospital. He started feeling weak and a bit short of breath Monday. He would not go to ER for me. So he did a couple of phone visits with our dr. The dr. ordered a covid test for Friday morning(today) plus an inhaler. Ted started to run a fever on Wednesday and I said "You are going to ER, get your shoes on. " Thank God my eyes are better. I drove him to ER. Had to stay in the parking lot. The dr calls later and says , Ted's x-ray showed pneumonia . They did a covid test told him they would let him know. So the dr says he was admitted to the hospital and they would also do a CT scan. The test for covid came yesterday, it was negative...so they do another...it came back today negative. The dr. said Ted would be coming home tomorrow.
So that was our Thanksgiving. My daughter Kathy came yesterday, and brought us food. I told her to stay awhile...so we wore masks and sat across the whole living room from one another. She left after 30 minutes, and went home. I wiped the containers of food with disinfectant. Sprayed the house, and left to take Ted's phone charger to the hospital. I was only allowed to drop it off...no visitors. I swear we are beginning to be like theses old pilgrims, a bit worn around the edges and faded. We talk on the phone, that is good.
Hoping your day went much better than ours. One more big holiday to get thru, praying everyone uses their good sense and keeps it small also. If we can get thru this winter, I think we may all have a fair chance. We'll get vaccinated. Also hoping our country will learn from all this, we are all part of this world , it isn't just about one of us, it's all of us. Stay safe and smart. XO
