My daughter just tested positive for covid on an at home test.

My wife FaceTimed her sister and showed her the test... her sister thought it was a positive pregnancy test and got all excited. Much confusion was going on while my wife was sad crying and her sister was happy crying.

Daughter is doing OK. She's been running a fever of 101ish off and on yesterday and today. She's feeling well enough right now to make a huge mess with all her toys, so not doing too bad.

The sister in law, however, is not happy about getting her hopes up 😅
ha, seems about like my dude. went to doc he was holding at 101 with tylenol given, got positive results from covid test, another 2 days or so of the fever and it finally broke woke him up and he was sweaty.

hope you’re on the tail end of it

fuck this sucks. for the vast majority of the pandemic our dog has been one of my only-child's primary go-to playmates (other than mom or dad), and puppers died in accident earlier today. We'll have to deal with the immediate trauma but I already know that this is going to linger because as I've pointed out to his mother more than a few times: the kid doesn't just include the dog in his play & pasttime stuff, he tends to rely on doggo when he burns through his imagination & other interests. No siblings, cousins, or any neighborhood kids to speak of, and almost every social activity we'd had him involved in has been on hold for the last year and a half.
Ever since hes been about 3 (8 now) I've wished we had given him a sibling, and this past year and a half it has absolutely grated on me.
And now its literally just me & him or his mom & him. Plus one aunt, one set of grandparents, and weekly playdates with a two friends whom he's not entirely fond of. I'm losing it here.

I'm so sorry about your puppah. Have you explored therapy for your son as something like this is traumatic and kiddo could possibly benefit from an objective perspective.

As a parent of an only, I can relate. On the plus side, only children benefit from an unending amount of attention, guidance and are often more successful adults than their peers. Having additional children doesn't necessarily guarantee that they will be close. But, I know. Second guessing that decision is a gut punch. :hug:
