Hello everyone. I would like to thank you all for your support when I messaged about our son who is an ambulance driver and contracted Covid. He had a rough time in hospital with the condition.

I am pleased to inform you that he came out of hospital yesterday (Tuesday) and is now resting at home with his family. Naturally, my wife and I were very concerned due to the fact that we couldn't travel the 130 mile to see him and due to my wife's condition of lupus, it would have been very dangerous for her.

The comments and support from you has helped us to stay positive. He will be off work for some time, but at least he is alive. For any of you who has lost some one to Covid please accept my condolences.

Thank you all ❤️

Sorry suzannah16 I didn't reply to your post. Our son has Long Covid and is still off work. Apparently, he has an appointment in September to test his breathing and for the hospital to do any treatment for him. About 4 weeks ago, our daughter, son in law and granddaughter all went down with Covid but thankfully they had received their 2 vaccines. After 7 days they were clear of it but stayed at home for the full 2 weeks that was required. We all need to make sure we are safe and to still stay away from crowds. Take care and stay safe

sorry to hear he has long covid. despite governments dropping nearly all covid regulations things don't seem to be improving for those of us with pre existing health conditions or those who now have long covid.

That is wonderful news. I’ve been wondering how he’s been doing so am so pleased to hear the news. It is hard that you can’t get to see him in person but perhaps you could Skype or FaceTime him once he feels strong enough. All my best wishes to you and your wife and as Spanielmadlady says please remember we are all here to support you both so please keep us posted. Take care. 🤗😘x

Hello all

I have a question: Has anyone had the vaccine AstraZeneca yet. If so, has anyone had side effects? My wife and I have ours tomorrow (Thursday) but are a little bit worried over what No. 10 said this evening about older people dying after the vaccine has been administered. As most of you will know, my wife also suffers with Lupus, and naturally, we feel a bit apprehensive . Many thanks to all
