Social distancing is a term applied to certain actions that are taken by Public Health officials to stop or slow down the spread of a highly contagious disease.
As a family, we are opting to practice “Social Distancing”. This is not fear-mongering, it is a precaution of safety for my friends and family AND for myself.
Some background on why we are choosing Social Distancing and it is not because we don’t like you!:
When Grayson came to us back in December of 2013, she had pneumonia, her lungs weren’t up to par. We went to many specialists and different doctors that ended up finally coming to the conclusion that cigarette smoke was an irritant causing her to be sick all of the time. Knowing that Larry and I didn’t smoke and her bio dad did, we knew that after every visit she was going to have issues. (And she did – for days after every visit) It took us 3 years of doctors and meds, breathing treatments, etc. But now, she is a perfectly healthy 9-year-old. This mama is going to keep it that way.
For several years after the removal of my thyroid and tumor in 2015, my immune system was down and I had 3 bouts of walking pneumonia in an 18 month period. This year I caught Influenza A for the first time ever after coming off of the family vacation cruise. Because of my concern about how fast I got sick (most likely because I do not get enough sleep because of my work schedule), my doctor has recommended for me to “Lay-Low” and watch what this virus is doing.
We have been watching everything and with schools being closed for the next 2 weeks and many not understanding that coming off of a week-long spring break where families have traveled, etc, there is a 14-day incubation of this virus. And you may not be showing signs of contracting it, you could have.
So what does all of this mean?
