Baby is 10 months old. My brother just took a flight to see him. Took a rapid test at home and its positive. He didn’t even have any symptoms and he has been so careful. He left and my heart is breaking. I can’t stop crying!

Very difficult stories. But be grateful for such a loving family that would be extra careful knowing they are visiting, spend time and money to fly across country to visit, then take another test and Quarantine in a hotel on personal dime. Just the financial means to do that means a lot, not to mention the consideration and thoughtfulness. You are very loved OP. As is baby. That's all that matters in the end.

I appreciated the postivity. it’s always great to be reminded of the good things.

My son just turned 1 ~2 weeks ago. Our immediate family were going to take rapid tests and come celebrate. My mom tested positive for Covid 3 days before. My brother, his wife, and my nephew decided not to come 2-3 days before bc she is pregnant and didn’t want to risk exposure. My husband’s brother in law was driving his sister and parents over (1.5 hour drive) and were 15 mins away when he got a call that his PCR from a few days earlier was positive (all tested negative on rapids that morning). This last 2 years has been full of disappointment. All we can control is how much we love our babies..we are all doing the best we can. I’m sorry for you and I feel your pain. Broke down crying the second we got the call about the positive test. It’s all too much… Hope your brother recovers soon and gets to see the baby. ❤️

I am so sorry! No words just solidarity. We haven’t seen my parents since my baby was born and he turned 1 yesterday. Covid has really impacted our lives way beyond we understand. All I can say is that lets be thankful that our family and babies are safe! We will get through this! All of us!

Left to go back on a plane after testing positive?

Nope. He is quarantined in a hotel nearby

I’m sorry OP. Like other have said, you have a kind and loving family. Sending you and your brother best wishes.

I am glad your brother did a test. My husband’s brother came to see us and didn’t do any testing. He started showing symptoms on the 2nd day 😞 My whole house went down with him one by one. I isolated myself with my 3.5 months old baby. It was rough 2 weeks, I lived in double mask and N95 mask. Thankfully we all came out of it without major symptoms but the isolation was the toughest part for me.

Hi guys, wanted to know a little bit about the Post Merger Integration(PMI) team at KPMG Global Services. Would be great if you can share about nature of projects, work life balance, travel etc.

So I started a new job in March and also got pregnant the same month. The new job is at a small firm and they never had a pregnancy so they do not have policies in place. Who do I tell? There’s one head admin person, two named partners one of which is generally MIA. So nervous about it.
