The Personal and Family Update Thread: How are you and your family doing?

This is simple:

How are you and your family doing in the crisis?

Safe and sound?
Someone infected?
Someone infected and recovered?
Someone infected and died? (If so, condolences.)

Please keep to first and second degree relatives. (Eventually we're all related somehow!!)

I am 74, very healthy and Live in PA. In the last couple weeks I and the wife will go to the grocery (large store but pretty empty). We get in and get out..quickly.

Wed I had a fever, slightly upset stomach, and all I wanted to do is sleep. Fever lasted 2 days. Fast forward...I am still a bit stiff and I am in bed for about 17 hours/day.. I get up 3 or 4 times/day. Good apatite. Who knows if I had it.

Hopeful I will get tested to see if I had antibodies and (if I am back to normal) will donate plasma. The thing (whatever I had) kicked my ass!!!!!!!!!!!

So far so good for us but A situation with joint custody is driving me nuts. This weekend would normally been the weekend she would spend with her dad. My wife asked him if during this pandemic and with the idea of trying to keep both households safe that my step daughter just stay home. We could make up the lost time later. Her dad is not taking this serious at all, had still been working and going about his days like he did before. Even worse is her brother which lives with her dad and his girlfriend/her family are taking huge risks letting college friends from out of town come visit etc etc. it's a perfect set up for everyone to get sick.

So dad pushes back some, wife holds her ground but suggested he come to our house and spend some time with Katie. Take her fishing, walk around our beautiful neighborhood and ride 4 wheelers. She said just stay 6' apart and come as often as you like. He comes and the ride 4 wheelers and did well maintaining space. Then once that's done I see them out playing catch with a softball. I'm like WTF? The visit ends with a big hug. Legally we can't keep her from him during this time. I don't know what the hell to do.

Our biggest fear is her going over there, someone spiking a fever and she get stuck there until everyone is clear for 14 days. She starts classes online Monday. We have her a system in place here to do that and are always very active with her school work. He does not have shit and I don't think he even asks about her grades. Her doing home school over there would be a terrible situation. She has a 4.5 GPA.

I have always tried to tread lightly and not push taking him to court but I am growing tired. He ran my wife out of money until she had to settle for joint custody of Katie only so he would only have to pay $200mo in child support. She and Katie were pretty much living in poverty when I found her. I don't need his money but he is a turd and getting under my skin. I think it's time to set the custody up as it should have been. Katie is with us 26 days out of the month.

Not sure why I chose this thread as a place to vent so my apologies.

My sister-in-law's husband has it he's from NY (uber/cab driver). He said he's had symptoms for about 2 weeks now. Fever, extreme fatigue, night sweats, complete loss of appetite, cough spells, etc. He's quarantined up in his apartment with my sister-in-law taking care of him. She's most likely got it too but she's had little to no symptoms. She is an asymptomatic carrier most likely.

He's just now starting to feel a little better.

I'm glad.

I did the same with my mom. She went to the grocery store for over an hour and a half, Wednesday. My sister was aghast and lit her up again. Worse than bad children but we're lucky to still have them.

All good in my family. I have heard from only one personal friend that even knew somebody that tested positive, and that person is well on the way to being recovered. Thanks for asking the question and putting up the poll, MK.

So far so good. Wife stays at home with our little one so she is used to isolation so to speak. I am still working as we are essential. Just hope I don’t bring it home. House is big enough if I do get it I can go upstairs and have my own bathroom etc. hopefully everyone stays safe and we can look back at it soon enough

I caught a mild cold last Fall and my mother in law and wife caught it too and totally messed them up for over a month. In retrospect we wonder if we already got coronavirus but didn’t know it since it wasn’t a thing then. I had just traveled to LA and back before I got sick. But officially, we haven’t got anything.

My lovely bride is responsible for Emergency Management for the Ministry of Transportation here in Ontario, has been working from home for going on 3 weeks now. A number of the front line staff have tested positive. She's good ( a bit grumpy to be honest ), has had asthma her whole life so she's playing it safe. A nice day in the garden though and i'm trying not to get on her nerves, I'm doing my part anyway.

Both myself and the gf have been basically home for the past month (both working from home). Only been out twice, once to put gas and last weekend to go for a drive and picked up a pizza. We had the flu back in Dec and it fucked us up pretty bad. I wasn't 100% for probably 3 weeks or more. My gf has a lot of issues with asthma and easily gets bronchitis whenever she gets sick so she would be my main concern although I have no desire to get sick after my flu experience.

Anyways I'm worried because I'm suppose to go to the doctors office on Monday for some ongoing chest pain I've been having for a few months now. On the one hand scared to catch it and pass it to my gf, but on the other scared whatever is wrong with me will kill me first if I don't go.

Did I post about how my 70+ year old in-laws' car was T-boned a few days ago? My DW was on the phone with them afterwards, hearing the story about how the other car lost control, went careening off the road and onto a lawn, over-corrected, and then T-boned their car. From across the room, I asked my DW if they had contacted their apartment building management yet about preserving the security camera videos of the other car going across their complex lawn and hitting their car in the parking lot? She gave me the shush gesture, and then told them that she was glad that neither of them were hurt bad enough to need transport to the hospital when EMS arrived.

Disengage shush mode! Long story short, they were out on a 100% unnecessary recreational trip, and I told them that this is the lord's way of making sure that they stay home from now until COVID-geddon is over. As part of my riot act, I threatened to grab my screw gun and drive an hour away to their apartment to install an outside latch on the door to make them stay in!

On a side note, the policy for the insurance card the other driver presented was apparently terminated and won't pay. Once the travel restrictions are lifted, I can see them taking a "recreational" trip to California on Judge Judy's tab rather than take the senior citizen driver hit on their own insurance by claiming it under the mandatory state uninsured motorist coverage.....

Weíre good here. My nephew is NYPD as his precinct is in Flushing(a lot of Chinese) and he got mildly sick when this all started here in NY and absolutely no precautions were handed down by Gov and mayor. My nephew guessed he got it after reading the symptoms. Young healthy guy and it wasnít even a thing for him. Cops and NYPD affiliates are dying at an alarming rate here.
My wifeís office( sheís working from home) had one death, one presently in ICU and scuttlebutt of others in hospitals. Buddy of mine told me today he has it. Itís rough here in the Empire State.
MK, howís your kin?

FML. No aide this week for my parents, probably longer. The aides mother is in critical condition. Pneumonia in both lungs. She didnít say the virus word but.... so now Iím flipping. Told the agency weíd make due. Iím more afraid of someone else coming into the house not knowing where theyíve been than the ďchildrenĒ being unsupervised. Aide says she hasnít seen her mother recently but who knows. I just canít.....

She says she hasnít seen her mother but who knows. I canít fucking breathe right now. My parents are both high risk. Mom on oxygen after being hospitalized for pneumonia late January. Dad finished radiation late January. Had to read them the riot act yesterday as they donít fucking get it. No dad, you canít go to the bagel store because mom wants a bagel. Someone shoot me.
