We Quarantined for Thanksgiving. You Can, Too.

Start making your holiday plans now. Pretty please…

My husband at last year’s Thanksgiving.

We hadn’t been shunned. We didn’t fall out with anyone. We didn’t become hermits, well, at least not of our own choosing.

We were quarantining.

Visiting my husband on Halloween. I brought candy for the nurses. Yes, I am dressed like a bat.

As our household’s medical quarantine ended, the global pandemic picked up the baton and ran with it.

John this September. He is alive because we were cautious.
