    Hi Angel, this is so sad to hear. I hope that your family is able to have a memorial service for your grandmother when that becomes possible. I missed a relative's funeral a few winters back when a vicious storm stopped all flights and ferries for weeks to the island where she lived. It made me realize the enormous benefit of having these services for all involved. It is so important to come together to remember those we love.

    For yourself, please be patient in your healing. I know some people, even young and healthy individuals, who have taken some time to recover. Just rest when your body tells you to rest and love your body back to health.

    I am so sorry Angel. I know this has been really tough for you and your family. I applied for an alternate work assignment (at home) since Mark has stage III kidney disease and I have asthma making us both high risk. We got a new doggie baby in July, a ten-year-old blind Pekingese named Polly.

    Thanks Inamorata, Ian25, and LJ. <3

    We were able to have a memorial service for her in August. Everything was extremely limited; viewing limit was 10 people, funeral was 30, and graveside allowed the remainder of family/friends provided they wore masks. She came from a large family and had a large family circle, so her children had to pick and choose who was part of the 10 and 30. That felt like a cruel burden to place on them. We were part of the 10 and 30 so we were able to see her one last time and place personal items with her (photo and a bear that held some of our son's ashes).

    I'm trying to be patient with my own health but I never thought I'd still be dealing with any of this months later. When I developed covid in early April the news was reporting about a 2 week illness so that's what I expected. I knew that timeline changed once I developed pneumonia but I never expected this much of a change. I developed a handful of health issues post-covid that I never had prior. Most have since resolved with the exception of shortness of breath, fatigue, and tachycardia so I need to see a cardiologist to rule out any heart damage and, if cleared, I'll begin a beta blocker and start in-home PT/OT to see if we can get me over this last hurdle. A lot of people are experiencing post viral fatigue so that's what I'm sort of hoping is going on with me.

    2020 has been a heck of a year for so many.

    Wishing you well, Angel.

    Our principal's grandaughter was an early covid-19 sufferer in March and suffered some alarming long-lasting effects, that led to fears the harm might be permanent, but she has now made a full recovery at last, so here's hoping you do the same soon.

    Thanks for the update Angel; I've been thinking about you a lot.

    I'm glad you were able to have the memorial service for your grandmother even if it wasn't exactly as you would have liked. These things are so important.

    I really hope that everything resolves itself and that you have no heart damage. It might just take longer than usual to get over COVID.

    Please check in again when you're feeling better and let us know how you're healing.
