Brother Watch-Some Good News

I was able to Skype with my brother yesterday, Thursday, and it helped me be less anxious about him. I have written a couple of posts but if you haven’t been reading them I will explain briefly. My brother has MS and resides in a Nursing Home. I was recently notified that there are cases of coronavirus at his facility. My brother is on a 14 day quarantine because of possible exposure. He was recently tested but we do not have the results yet. Families were told via recorded message that there have been a couple more positive cases and that we need to communicate with the administrator by email if we want to know the status of our family members.

A little miracle did happen today. I received a call from one of the Social Workers at the facility. She had been meeting with my brother before this crisis started but now she can’t go into his part of the facility because they are in quarantine. She wants to meet with my brother over Skype to offer him support. I told her I felt like crying and I am crying thinking of it. It is so wonderful that he can have extra support right now.

    As an MS sufferer myself, I feel for your brother and you. I’ve a wheelchair user and I’ve been almost housebound for three years, but don’t face the same risks as your poor brother. And with MS varying as it does, I’m unsure if my minimal health issues are comparable. All I can do is send my positive thoughts and hopes, plus my blessings to you both. Stay safe, sensible, and inspired.
