My family’s Covid cases are now at five

My sister and her husband are 7 days into their quarantine. Now, my cousin and her husband have both tested positive with my brother-in-law’s sister being added to the outbreak. There have been two community deaths due to the virus on top of our cases. At least three of the people infected in my family at this time, are members of the education community.

This is a sad situation. I wish Trump the best, but part of me is so angry right now. Opening up schools was such a bad move. If he gets better he needs to rethink the steps he has taken to thrust COVID back into the mainstream. It is one thing to get COVID from going to a party, but another thing completely to get it from working. Keep in mind, Texas schools are not closing when they get cases. Cases are rising again and nobody seems to have the strength to say it’s time to back up.

A lot of people keep chanting about mild cases of COVID as if mild cases are a walk in the park. These so called mild cases can come with 101 to 104 fevers that last for days. My sister and her husband are still having fever and they are on day 7 or 8. Tell me what flu ever made you have fever for longer than a few days with medication? That is the difference. My family has pneumonia brought on my the COVID which is due to the inflammation inside their body. When people talk about about COVID 19 being the cause of death and then things like pneumonia being the real reason, they do not understand that COVID causes the pneumonia. If you would picture a bite from a venomous snake and think about how the venom attacks the body, you would understand how COVID attacks the body.

As always be safe, and thank you for caring about my family. Remember you owe it to your family to stay healthy. Political wars are not the issue, the issue is surviving this virus.

Trump’s Demeanor Is The Thorn In America’s Side.

If you have been wondering why America has an anger problem, look no further than our leader President Trump. Trump’s debate performance last night cleared up so many questions regarding the recent chaotic atmosphere in states across America. Trump’s telling the Proud Boys to “Stand Back and Stand By” showcased an allegiance with the group, which is known to cause as many incidents as their rivals. With his link now reinforced by those little four words, people can no longer defend the President against causing some of the unrest.

Biden was annoyed by the tactics of President Trump. While he might have said some out of character things here or there, he still managed to talk policy. People watched the debate because they wanted hear about policies that would help move the country past COVID-19. Instead we got a one-sided show. One person was trying to talk policy and the future of America, while the other was trying to talk about anything other than policy.

The 90 minute debate felt like 180 minutes by the time it was over. Trump was an absolute mess. If he wasn’t responding like a ten year old, he was giving Biden grief about his son being a drug addict. There are numerous people in America with mental health issues, and substance abuse issues. To hear a president talk down on a population of people by judging them at their lowest moments shows just how uncaring he is about his citizens. Not only is it disrespectful to bring that type of hardship into a conversation, but it speaks loudly about the mindset of the person doing the talking.

America has a problem and the only way to solve it is to replace Trump as President. The people of this country deserve better and America cannot stand four more years of this sort of leadership.

As for my own struggle with COVID-19. My sister and her husband are now on day 5 of their quarantine and her husband’s sister has now also tested positive for COVID-19. These are the issues we needed to hear Trump address. The country needed to understand why he opened schools, only to turn around and see many of them come back with cases of COVID. Trump has no defense and this is why we are seeing him push attention to anything other than the failures, he has helped to bring to our country.

COVID Update On Family

This is kind of a hard time for us, but I want to keep you updated. My sister and her husband are on day three of their 14 day quarantine. So far nobody needs to be hospitalized, so that is a good thing. As for anything else, it is not like the flu. It is setting up inflammation inside their entire body. COVID is a beast, any prayers you wish to throw their way would be welcomed. We will keep it positive with positive thoughts flowing,

The only thing I want to focus on right now is removing Trump from office before this happens to more families. No family should have to go through something so stressful without the ability to see and comfort their loved ones. It sucks.

MY Sister And Her Husband Both Have Covid-19. One is a principal and the other a coach.

When I first started writing about COVID-19 in January, I never thought I would see the virus hit my family. At that time, it was predominantly in China and just barely crossing onto the shores of America. After writing numerous articles on COVID and warning all of my loved ones, it is finally here within my small orb of family members.

This is my sister at the start of the school year.

My sister, who happens to be a principal of an elementary school, and my brother-in-law works as a coach/driver’s ed instructor at a high school are both now quarantining with the virus. Not only are they now quarantining for 14 days, but many of the staff members at my sister’s school have had to go into isolation. The school has had to bring in an assistant principal from another school and teachers to help fill in the gap of workers that had to take off due to the virus. The virus removed my sister, counselors, teachers, and other members of staff.

For some reason, Texas is not letting schools shut down after cases of COVID are found. Instead of shutting these locations down, they bring in more staff members to plug in the gaps. Perhaps, this is our cry for help during this storm. Who is backing this protocol when it comes to reporting and handling of COVID 19 infections? As many of you know, my children’s school now has at least five cases of COVID. One school about 25 miles away has COVID cases in the double digits.

We have heard a lot about herd immunity in the news. It would appear, in my opinion, that we are witnessing some form of it play out in our schools here in Texas. It is just too perplexing as to why anyone would keep schools open with cases of COVID. It is over the school administration’s head, so where are these decisions coming from that enforce schools to stay open with cases of COVID?

With over 200,000 people dead of COVID-19 right now, I think we should make sure we are not letting our guard down. Right not my sister has pneumonia, but her spirits are good. I will keep you posted.
