Long last couple days. Got a call from the ex wife last night saying our daughter had a fever of 102°, runny nose, congested. This morning her fever dropped to 99°, and they scheduled a video appointment. Doc thought with her symptoms, she needed to be tested, so my 6 year old got the nasal swab at 2 today. Here’s where it gets interesting. I told the Ex the safe play was for our daughter to remain with her until we got results back, and longer of it was positive. She didn’t want her. Told me that “she really was missing me, and asking to see me. Plus she didn’t want to mess up her routine” (she was scheduled to go with me tonight anyway). Wtf. So, I decided I didn’t want to expose my family and could safely quarantine with her in my parents basement without exposing them. So me, with my congenital heart and lung defects, Jumps into the lions den and takes my possibly covid infected daughter to my folks house. Both of us masked up. Her fever went away, so I was encouraged by that. She slept most of the night. At 10:30 got the results back that she was negative. She did so well with it all and never complained, I was so proud of her. Very brave little girl. I’m so relieved that she isn’t sick and that I wasn’t going to catch the dead, at least not now. I’m pretty amped up still. Anyway CSB.
