So Nick has covid! He’s not been well since he tested positive last Thursday but thankfully he’d been away since the Sunday with work, and then I was too tired to stay up when he got back on Wednesday night. Never been so glad that our bed is big enough to sleep with a massive gap between us!
I know there is still a slight chance of getting it, and every time my throat feels scratchy etc I think maybe it’s arrived, but I think we’ve been so careful, I may well have avoided it. He’s been isolating ever since the positive test.
It’s funny though. I’m in two minds as to whether I’m pleased or not!! I can’t afford to get it this week as I’m ‘hosting’ a Randonnee for work in the Isle of Wight (that’s a cycle ride for those that don’t know!). And of course, and probably more importantly, we just don’t know how it’ll affect me. It could be the same as most other people, but most likely it’ll just hit me a bit longer and harder. So those are the reasons not to want it!
But then again, we have our first holiday abroad in five years booked for August. Both Nick and I really need it, and I think it will be really lovely for the four of us to have some great quality time away. Who knows if the kids will want to come with us next year?! At least if I were to get covid beforehand, I wouldn’t have to worry about getting it before the holiday.
So I’m not really sure what to wish for!
What else to say? I’m still trying to train for my #LondontoParis ride for Myeloma UK. And to raise sponsorship. I’ve managed to get someone to agree to print on my cycling tops Pro bono so if anyone out there has a business that would like to sponsor me for £500, I’ll get your logo on, and do some shout outs on social media for you! I plan to wear these tops to train and after the event too so it won’t just be a one-off trip out.
A massive thank you to everyone who has sponsored so far (and donated for our 20th wedding anniversary too!)
Are you aware of the treatments we can get straight away if we test positive for Covid? I have managed to avoid it so far, but it is comforting to know there is help out there if we do get it. https://bloodcancer.org.uk/support-for-you/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-vaccine-blood-cancer/covid-antibody-treatment/ Good luck with all your amazing plans.
Yes I think it does put my mind at rest! I just don’t want to get it when we’re due away – I think it would break my heart!
Sorry to hear about Nick – just take care not to catch it yourself!! Much love M xx

I’m trying! We’ve barely seen each other in the last two weeks. He was away, then we had a party for our anniversary (too busy looking after everyone), then he went away, and now covid! They do say absence makes the heart grow fonder!
