    When my husband and I first heard of the Virus in China , we were concerned for their people. Never dreamed it would be right next door! Then the virus spread to the states, still not sure if it would be in our area. Finally it hit in Ohio and we waited for the virus to spread to our county, which is Miami. This was makinf us fretful and anxious! An announcement that a nursing home two miles from us really hit home. WEe wonderdd if we had benn at a grocery etc. where some of their staff had been recently. And we might contact the virus. My husband has an under5lying con dition and we are in our late 70″s. The week before Easter, my husband became extremely tired, and short of breath. We contacted our family Dr. Who is head of the testing cite at UD. He suggested we call our heart dr. and they told him to go to ER. I was not allowed to go in with him. I was tearful thinking about this. He called and I picked him up after a few hours, and he was wearing a mask and sitting outside. He said read the papers the Dr. gave. He was now in Quarintine for 2 weeks. On the fourth day we received a phon e call saying he tested negative! There were more tears of relief! We feel sadness for people all over the world. It is overwhelming. I just break out sobbing , just thinking about it all. Getting better about this now. Connecting with our church family is very rewarding and really helps us to pray and make phonecalls to our family and friends. We worry about our daughters, a nurse at Miami Valley Hospital, and a children’s advocate for Green Co. childrens services. Also our granddaUGHTER WHO WORKD AT A HOSPITAL CLEANING THE ROOMS OF FORMER cORONO vIRUS PATIENTS.AND OUR GRANDSON WHO IS A POLICEMAN.
