← Return to New pulmonary fibrosis post COVID: Preparing for vitual follow-up

Comment receiving replies

Wonderful news that she is recuperating - just remind her that anytime one has been hospitalized, there is a recovery period - it just seems that with Covid, it is longer. We got word this week that our son-in-law and 3yo grandson have Covid - fever, cough & stuffy nose - my daughter is sure the rest of them will follow (she's a school nurse, the schools are now remote due to enormously high levels of the virus circulating.) It seems like all her friends and their kids have it racing through their homes - kids are just little germ incubators - even hers, who are exceptionally good at masking! We just keep encouraging from afar - we couldn't be with them even if we travelled there.

Just keep encouraging your daughter and her family - maybe send her a meal subscription for a few weeks if you really want to do something. That's what my friend's daughter did for her after surgery down here. It really helped her to have some easy meals to prep.

I can’t seem to remind her enough…… I only wish she would slow down……. She went out to feed the horse without 02 one day. Yesterday she went to grocery store with her portable 02 and has picked the kids up from school. She is learning to sit at a stool at kitchen counter to prepare meals. Last night she complained of chest discomfort. Steroid has now worn off so that seems normal. I AM concerned about the kids bringing germs home (they r 6 & 9). I am sorry ur family is dealing with this. Fortunately the kids really bounced back with a few days! My SIL is back to shift work (he had mostly a head cold and stress of wife in hospital who he couldn’t see). My daughter has been given off from work til April. That seems reasonable. Thankfully her MIL is living with them and can help out too. Thanks for ur reply and hope ur family gets better sooner than later!
