Covid

Empty

(original post: November 9, 2020)

My glasshalfull is feeling pretty empty tonight. Floyd had a downturn over the weekend and is being transferred to a bigger hospital tonight. Please keep him in your prayers and continue the positive deeds and thoughts. Thank you and God be with us all.

Introducing Glasshalfull

For years, my family has complained about my positive nature. I am always pointing out the brighter side of things which they do not always appreciate. But I can’t help it. It is either that or be a grouch. And there are enough of those in the world already. Nine years ago, I began a series of posts called Glasshalfull on my Facebook page. My intent was to talk about things I was grateful for and to point out the positive side of negative events. Little did I know how much I’d need that outlet in the dark days to come.

In late October, early November 2020, my husband and I contracted Covid 19. As a way to cope, I began writing about our experiences. I have compiled those blogs here in the Glasshalful, Covid Edition category.

Covid test: positive

(Original post: November 4, 2020)

Day? Year? in Glasshalfull–I’m too tired to count it up tonight.

Just wanted to share some news so everyone will be aware. Floyd tested positive for Covid today. He is doing okay, still has his smile, is teasing me as normal, but is in the hospital to be on the safe side. I haven’t gotten my results yet but am doing okay and will be quarantining. We don’t know how we got this because we wear our masks, use hand sanitizer and wash hands, socially distance, and go out at little as possible. Yet, here we are. My ask with this message is for prayers and positive thoughts, of course. But also, that we each take time to do an act of kindness for someone in the next few days. That’s what Floyd has always tried to do and I’m convinced that the positive vibes you purposefully create will be healing for him and for us all.

UPDATE: Well, it seems I am officially positive, too. But as you know by my Glasshalfull posts, that’s what I try to be, so not too surprising. Floyd is still doing okay in the hospital and we talk a lot on the phone. Reminds me of our dating days way back when, only the conversations are much older but, hopefully, a little wiser.

UPDATE2: Floyd is home again! He had plasma last night and is home now enjoying his recliner. Still sooooo tired but that comes with this territory. Thanks to all for the positive support.
