Squaring Up With The COVID

The last few days were quite hectic!

Not just for me but for my whole family.

My two close family members tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

One was admitted in the hospital with severely low blood oxygen saturation and damaged lungs while other was diagnosed with initial symptoms of COVID-19, so immediate quarantine measures were taken up by the whole family.

Except for my father and kids in my home, who didn’t met those relatives in recent days, everyone else in the family underwent COVID-19 PCR test immediately.

And I tested negative, along with rest of my family members, which is certainly such a big relief.

But the ordeal is still not over for my family as those close relatives are still in recovering phase. Treatment is underway and both of them are showing good signs of recovering, which is certainly a big relief for us.

So, this is the main reason behind no new episode of Weekend Sky for this week, along with no regular posts.

But I’m ready to catch up πŸ™‚


I’m honestly having strange feelings while linking this SquareUp post with Becky’s SquareUp – Squaring Up for theΒ Photograph

      I’m hoping for the COVID negativity to continue as well but to ensure that, I may have to go through another test after 15 days.
      Thank you so much for your well wishes πŸ™‚

      Certainly, those in the Japanese Garden in the Botanical gardens are much nicest and it may be safe enough to make a visit there.

      Thank you so very much for prayers and positive energy, Cee.
      Both family members are showing good signs of recovery but as you said, the after effects of this don’t go away anytime soon, so we are preparing up for that as well.
