"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." — Maya Angelou
On Tuesday evening, Jane's cell phone received a message and an email from a school official appeared in her inbox.
Cam was exposed to a student on his daily bus ride to school who had just received a positive test result for Covid-19. The letter indicated that the individual had last ridden the bus on Friday. The official correspondence went on to say that Cam was now required to quarantine through Monday, Feb. 1st. He was not required to get a Covid-19 test unless he started showing symptoms. If he did not exhibit any symptoms, he may return to school on Tuesday, Feb. 2nd. All of this detail was read at 7:55pm as Cam was settling into bed. Needless to say, this led to 50 more questions after we broke the news to our son. He fully understood the quarantine since it's become a standard discussion of daily life.
He helped his mom complete her first "fast lane" - pick up grocery online ordering experience- with their local store.
Due to the quarantine, Cam's PT, swimming and ski lessons were all canceled out this week. That didn't damper his spirits, though, because there was still fun to be had at home. On Saturday, our neighbors were sledding in the backyard when Chris and his son decided to get out the drone and watch their friends close up.
To round out our week, an unexpected brochure arrived in the mail from MI-UCP, the Michigan United Cerebral Palsy organization. Maybe you recognize the cool kid on the front?
