I had a really sore arm and fatigue after my first Moderna shot, so I was pretty worried about the effects I would have from the second. To my pleasant surprise, there were no side effects and only a moderately sore arm. I felt very lucky.
My daughter was just diagnosed with Covid-19 for the second time. She was first sick in July and it took a while for her to recover. Now she has it again.
She has been very conscientious about wearing her mask and social distancing, but she is a school teacher. She may have been re-infected by one of her students.
My husband is 78 and was diagnosed with early dementia almost 2 years ago. He has progressed fairly rapidly since then. It is so heartbreaking to watch him struggle to find the words he needs and to remember people's names. He usually can't remember our 2 children. One night this week he didn't remember that I was his wife.
Taking care of him is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. He's still home with me but I don't know how much longer that will be possible. It's an awful situation.
