We’ve been pretty blessed as a family not to have been hit by the virus til this day. But alas, over the weekend, the boy felt a sore throat on the Friday, tested positive on the ART kit and spent the day in bed with a slight fever the next day.

L’s journey was documented herself..

Hopefully the 3 days of darkness will be over for us 🙏 And the little one and me are still hanging tight being negative.

If I make it through this round of infections so near me without catching it, I must be truly blessed, because everyone in the office has caught it. It can only be done with God’s help. Praise be to God!
