I escaped it for a long time. But 12 days ago I headed for emerg at out small local hospital, and it only took one swab for them to admit me with Covid. I hope you noticed I've been missing in action for 12 days now. I wouldn't wish this on anyone! The first day wasn't bad, but days 2 and 3 were horrible! I was in hospital, in isolation, for a week and have been home now for another 5 days, so I'm on day 12 and no longer infectious.
To make it even worse, Mrs. F.G. caught it at the same time, though her case seems to have been musch milder. Still, once I was home guess who was my caregiver!
I came home to our continuing colourful garden; here are a few pictures.

I'm so glad we have a small local hospital only 3 blocks away. That makes a huge difference for us, as does our colourful garden where I can sit out every morning!
I had noticed you hadn't been around. I'm happy you were able to get care so quickly and close to home, and hopefully fully recovered.ReplyDelete
You have a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the beauty around you. Take care.
I assumed that you were busy and were out& about. I'm glad you are on the mend. You & Mrs FG did not need that to happen. Enjoy that lovely garden.ReplyDelete
Wow, what an experience! So glad you've recovered. Keep on keeping on!ReplyDelete
Take good care and stay well.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry you were so ill with Covid and even had to be hospitalized. I've heard that some feel a lack of energy for weeks afterwards. Both myself and DH were lucky and got very mild cases.ReplyDelete
I don't think I've heard of Butterfly Weed. It's a very striking shade of orange isn't it!!
Oh so sorry you had Covid. We both had it in May. We had mild cases but still was so tired for quite a time afterwards.ReplyDelete
Get well soon.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry! That is so tough. I am happy you are back!ReplyDelete
I did notice you were mia since Aug 5th. Glad you are back. You have a lovely view from your deck.ReplyDelete
I am so glad you are both okay now. Everyone around us has had Covid is seems. I expect to get it any time we are out and about. The blooms in the garden are so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Beautiful flowers in your garden. I'm so sorry you got Covid.ReplyDelete
so sorry fg, i had it also and it can be very difficult for some. i'm glad you have access to a small hospital and that you received quick care!! the gardens are looking beautiful, so many colorful flowers!!ReplyDelete
and yes, i missed you!!
So sorry you got it but I am glad you are out of the hospital and on the mend.ReplyDelete
So many people who dodged it are getting it now. Glad you are through it and back home. Take care.ReplyDelete
People tend to dismiss C these days, but it’s not exactly a jolly time for most people. It must be wonderful to get back to the flowers.ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear you got covid. And that you ended up in the hospital! Glad you're home again though.ReplyDelete
So glad you are back! Been watching and wondering where you have been. Love seeing all the beautiful flowers in the garden and around town!ReplyDelete
It's very good to see you back, figured something was amiss when you were gone so long. While you may have had several miserable days, those certainly are better than what might have been. The garden is beautiful, as are the individual plants -- enjoy, enjoy.ReplyDelete
Very happy to see you back. Thank you for sharing your garden, and your life, with us.ReplyDelete
Yes, I too had noticed your absence and sensed that something may be amiss. A scary time for both of you and I hope you do not have to go through that again. Great flower photos.ReplyDelete
I, too, noticed you were missing in action and I'm very happy you are back. As it means you are back in good health. I'm sure it wasn't a good experience in any way and hourly you have kicked Covid to the curb for good.ReplyDelete
Stay well, my friend! 💗
Hopefully, not 'hourly'. Should have proofread!!Delete
