Dad in Hospital with COVID, 83 yr old mom home alone
I am 84 and alone. I just recovered from civic alone, here at home. Not easy but doable. Some days were scary…but day 16 it was gone….symptoms.

@cctoo– Good morning. It's nice to meet you. I am a mentor for Mayo Clinic Connect and I don't think that we have spoken before. Being alone during any illness can be pretty tough, but COVID-19? WOW. And now it's gone. What a strong constitution you must have. Did you have any meals delivered or were you able to care for yourself? Do you have family close by?
So glad you are doing well now, @cctoo. Living alone presents its own challenges and harder when ill without others available to help. You must be a real trooper to have managed so well! Your 16 day marathon had to be anything but easy! Hope I can be as spunky as you at age 84!
