#Postpartum Day 17. Quarantined.
So after my hour and a half of freedom last night driving myself two blocks from home for a quick studio yoga practice, I’m back inside the room — quarantined. And what’s worse, I might stay here for a couple of weeks with my newborn while my 7-year old has chicken pox. It’s awful, and I felt really, really bad to not be allowed to go near her lest to touch her. I myself was not immune to the virus as I haven’t had one since I was a kid, and to put myself at risk will also put my little one at risk. I was worried as hell last night esp for my newborn… But after a whole night of disturbed sleep and endless prayer (yes, I was praying even in my dreams during the few minutes I dozed off), I woke up at sunrise with a sense of surrender. I have a hopeful heart that baby and I will be spared — but if we shall get it, I believe God will be with us and He help us get through it safely.
Today I had my breakfast and lunch in the room as they prefer for baby and I to stay here. I specifically requested pure moringa soup for lunch to level up my immune system. I hope this will help, somehow. ❤️
