My grandmother is in the hospital dying of COVID complications. My nanny came to work today and then I had to send her home (and to testing) at lunch today due to a fever. I’m really not feeling 2021.

Oh man. I’m so sorry. My grandmother is also in the hospital right now with covid, after 9 months of almost complete isolation in her home to protect the residents. It is so hard to see those we love suffer so much from this disaster.
I hope your nanny tests negative (I’m sorry she came to work!) and that you can at least have that off your mind. Sending you good vibes thru the internet...

I am so sorry. This time is so hard on the elderly. My grandfather passed away a few weeks ago because the hospital checked him out without realizing that he had pneumonia. They were trying to clear out the hospital to open up more beds for COVID patients :(.

Ugh - I’m right there with you - grandpa went in a week or two before Xmas and is still there ... and probably caught it at a medical device check up because he hadn’t been going anywhere or having visitors etc. hang in there - I know the lack of details and inability to visit is so tough right now and it’s hard to talk about - especially when you still see friends/acquaintances out and about on social media

Sending you a hug!!!
