WE SURVIVED COVID-19 🦠
Yep. What I thought was just a cold got worse & worse over a week’s time, landed me in the ER for an afternoon, & ended up being Covid.
It’s been a tough time in the Boudreaux house, needless to say. But goodness, God has carried us thru & we’ve been so loved on by friends & family. All their care, food deliveries, & target/kroger runs have blessed us beyond words. Anddd a huge shoutout to some amazing photographer pals who stepped in & covered our weddings for us too. #worsttimingevercovid
Honestly, at first I didn’t know if I would share this on social media… It kinda made me anxious to think about! I worried we’d be judged & felt a strange sense of shame around having Covid. There’s lots of strong, aggressive opinions about this pandemic. And it’s a really odd, vulnerable feeling to have the very thing that people are arguing, preaching, & pandemic-ing about in your body & your home.
But if I had the flu, I would never worry about being scrutinized for getting the freaking flu! Covid shouldn’t be any different. We’ve been obnoxiously careful, followed guidelines, & done our best with navigating these past several months. No room for shame here. If I can help someone else realize that & be a comfort to them by sharing our experience, then I will!
So any questions, leave them below. I know for myself, reading about other people’s symptoms, helpful meds, etc. was comforting for me while in the thick of this confusing, scary illness. From testing, isolating, immunity, etc. – there are still so many unknowns & it’s not easy to get through it. I’m thankful my case was pretty mild (although lengthy) especially while pregnant. We’re all making the best decisions with the info we currently have. And I think giving yourself & others grace is the best way forward. (Some of y’all might wanna read that again 🤭)
We’re fully recovered now. & Sadie is doing just fine too. I’m excited & preparing for our sweet girl to be here. She’s officially started to drop, I’m swollen like woah, and WE’RE IN MONTH 9! (AKA pray for us lol)
And for realz let’s be kind to each other, y’all. There’s enough hate, fear, sickness & shame in this world. We’ll get through this together. 💛
