Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water!


I just received this Facebook post from a friend in the states. If you have been vaccinated and think it is safe to let down your guard, think again. Here is her story:

Joe and I tested positive for Delta Covid-19 yesterday. We were vaccinated with Pfizer, Joe in Feb, and me in March. We had to INSIST that our doctor test us yesterday. He kept saying, “no, you’ve been vaccinated, this is just a virus.” This tells us there are more people out there with Covid who think they have something else. Also, Joe’s symptoms are not mild…he already has some pneumonia. I’m reporting this to stress how important it is to WEAR YOUR MASK. Please, please, please, wear your mask in public. We trusted the vaccine to protect us, we were wrong to do so! Already this morning we know it’s very possible Joe will need to be hospitalized. Kris and Jeffery have no symptoms. Anyone who has been around us in the last week, please get tested.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Amen, Sister! I got my second vax 2 weeks ago, so I’m now officially fully vaccinated. A good friend wants to visit me here in my isolation, but NOPE! Not until this thing (with all its damned variants) is gone. I’m happy not to have anyone bringing Covid cooties into my home for a long while!

    How strange that they both tested positive.
    The vaccine is meant to encourage our bodies to produce antibodies to ward off the virus, but not everyone’s bodies are as efficient as others and some don’t produce enough antibodies. None of us knows how our bodies will behave.

    I had Covid seven months ago and was very ill, I’ve had long Covid since then, it’s unpleasant, debilitating and hard to live with. I’m also double vaccinated but I will continue to take every precaution, keep my distance, wash my hands regularly, use hand gel and I will wear my mask.
