Please stay safe

β€’67 Replies

Just wanted to stress how serious Covid is.

I've found out that my son in law's dad's future wife, has tested positive and she's quite poorly. She was very poorly last year with Pneumonia and other complications so we're quite concerned at the moment, she's also Diabetic.

Please stay safe, the vaccine is nearly here and I'd rather not see people and be safe.

Take care all.

Thank you very much Chrys. Our son in law is very worried, she's such a lovely person and we get on so well. I'm making their wedding cake for next September.

in reply to

Thank you Mandy and you are so very right that this deadly virus is invisible. We can't see this enemy and it doesn't take prisoners. It's sad that others are dying if other conditions because the NHS are overrun with COVID cases.

Im so so sorry for your friend, that's awful.

We have to be very vigilant Mandy.

Stay safe and well.

Alicia xx

Sorry to hear this, I do hope she will be ok, we must be so careful even when we have the vaccine it won't be 100 % , so we must make sure especially over XMAS that we don't mix with too many people or people who have been in contact with anyone with the virus , please take care and stay safe

in reply to

Thank you for your very kind words. We really don need to stay safe, I'm so pleased now I have a small family and we are all careful.

Stay safe and well.

So sorry to hear that. Such bad luck. Hope she makes a good recovery. My daughter in law and grandson both had covid but mildly luckily and now they have the antibodies. My son escaped it.

in reply to diana1998

I'm so sorry your daughter in law and grandson had it, your son's immune system must be very good. I'm pleased they had it fairly mildly.

diana1998 in reply to

Yes, due to their age I think.

in reply to diana1998

That's good though that it was mild

Stay positive for her. My sons mother inlaw partner got it when he was in hospital after having an op. He was in hospital for 7 weeks and he’s now home recovering slowly. He had it in March and he as heart problems

in reply to Nuttyshirlz

Thank you and I will. Oh my goodness, I really feel for your son's mother in law's partner particularly with his heart problems and after having an op.πŸ™

Slug_hater profile image

Sorry to read this and pray she’ll soon recover. As you say people don’t realise how serious it is and just because rules are relaxing a bit over Christmas, IMHO a bad mistake, doesn’t mean we should.

I’m in self isolation prior to having an operation on my hand for skin cancer on Tuesday. Hopefully it will go well and won’t need further operation so I can see my daughter and her family soon. I am in their bubble but can’t see them until after operation.

Sending love and prayers to you and your family πŸ™β€οΈ

in reply to Slug_hater

Thank you very much.

We should never relax with this virus until we know it's more under control and we end up in a routine with having a vaccine every year.

Sending you my thoughts and prayers also for your operation, hope it goes well. My sister in law had skin cancer removed from her face several years ago and hasn't had any further problems since.


in reply to Slug_hater

Sorry to interrupt but just wanted to say good luck for tomorrow. I will be thinking of you Lots of love and hugs Lynne xxxx β€οΈπŸ€—πŸŒˆπŸŒΉπŸ’œ 🌻 xxxx

Never mind "six degrees of separation"; that is only four. My partner is Type 1 and hasn't had a shielding letter but he is sort of shielding. I hope that lady recovers quickly.

in reply to MaggieSylvie

Thank you very much. I don't know if she had a letter but she was in and out of hospital a lot last year.

Stay safe and well.

Sheila_G profile image

Absolutely. I hope she recovers well.

in reply to Sheila_G

Thank you Sheila

Hi Alicia, I think that one of the problems with covid19 is that until we know someone who is affected, we tend to believe that it can't happen to us or ours. Sadly it's not true, so thanks for this timely reminder not to become complacent. I do hope there will be a happy outcome this time.πŸ™

in reply to

I personally know 2 people who have officially had covid a friend who is 17 who ended up hospitalised and an old colleague who is 50 was badly hit and all his family had to stay home for 2 weeks but he is fine now.

I think lots have had covid long before it became officially christened like myself thinking it was a bad cold but no it probably wasn't.

in reply to

Yes catgirl1976. I remember our dance teacher being so ill last Christmas with a 'flu' which she said was worse than any kind of flu she'd ever had before. She had breathing difficulties and was completely bed bound for several weeks. With hindsight, i'm pretty sure it was an early coronavirus case!

in reply to

Hi Sue

Thank you and your so right, it really hits you when it's loved ones. I'll check on my son in law later as I know he's very worried about his dad, he's worried he'll get it as well.

It's an awful virus and we must be careful.πŸ™πŸŒˆ

Alicia, It is awful, and there are many more symptoms than are widely discussed. We were so careful but still got it back in March. My husband and I got violent gastric problems in addition to the rest. So at first we thought it was e-coli but pretty sure now it was Covid. Never experienced anything like it in my life, my husband , who was worst, lost about two and a half stone. We are both mildly asthmatic and measure our peak flows, mine dropped from 450 to just below 300, my husbands from 650 to 400. We had our inhalers to hand and used them and were sort of OK. But there was one day I was very concerned about what my husband was coughing up (sorry to be so graphic)

We slept in separate rooms as we were both getting up frequently so didn't want to disturb one another even more. But, as I said he was worst and I spent half the night awake listening to see if he needed help, which he did sometimes, and then woke early to, quite honestly, go and see if he had survived.

And we were not even bad enough to be hospitalised, so think how awful it is for those who are.

And we are still experiencing the after effects. So, please, please, don't take this lightly. Keep yourself safe so that you can enjoy life again when the pandemic is beaten.

Sorry if this is graphic but I think people need t know. This isn't just a bad cold, far worse even than 'flu. Keep safe.

in reply to margaretpaloma

Oh my goodness, having the gastric side as well as the breathing difficulties is awful. The certainly don't say anything about the tummy but people are also affected that way. That was a lot if weight to lose.

What an awful scary time for you.

I honestly can't understand why you weren't in hospital.

That's the problem, the after effects which they don't mention much.

You are right to be what you call graphic, people do need to know and I think survivors and those that have lost loved ones should be interviewed and then be televised.

in reply to

πŸ‘πŸ’œπŸ‘β€οΈyes definitely. Did you see the programme of a journey of 4 covid-19 patients? Very emotional. XxxxπŸ’œπŸ’œ

in reply to

I've been watching, what I think is caked COVID Hospital. We saw it last night and they were so ill but what was lovely is that they survived and looked so well afterwards. A man a year older than me was released but had to self isolate, it was heart rending watching his wife in tears as she saw him but had to keep distant and couldn't hug.


in reply to margaretpaloma

I totally agree. I'm so sorry to read about you and your husband . I think you need to be graphic sometimes. Some friends of my Mum and Dad's lost their son in April to covid-19, he was 54. It must be so hard for them. He had a twin brother and an older brother. I know there are lots more families just like this , we really must stay vigilant. I would rather stay in my own home for one Christmas so that we can stay healthy and then have many more Christmas Days etc together.Sorry for going on xxxx

Stay safe and lets hope things will be better soon with the vaccine. Not knowing if we have an immunity from getting it once, but knowing how bad it can be, we are being very careful. We get shopping delivered and just stay at home and make the best of things. But we both survived - for which we thank providence.Margaret xx

Amen!Hurry up vaccine!!

in reply to Williemom


Thank you Jerry. I'm very fond of both of them so really hope that she's going to be ok. I feel for my son I'm law as well.

This really is a timely reminder, we can't be too safe.
