My son-in-law returned home from a conference and tested positive.

Of the reasons to think twice about traveling, attending a conference surely deserves to oust #5 on that list in a previous thread (which is as dumb a reason for staying at home as I can think of) It's right up there with my hesitancy WRT our upcoming trips.....end of next month for dh to present a couple of papers at the Digestive Diseases Week conference in San Diego and the following month the same at the European Association for Study of the Liver in London. Both whoppers as meetings go and I think the fretting and wondering "what if...." (especially the rigmarole involved with returning to the US) will be a spoiler for me on top of the decision for me not to register and attend. I'll have to force some retail therapy on myself with the money I've saved.

Best of luck with recovering from Covid. I say that rather than "take care" since I imagine you've been taking as much care as humanly possible.....and then some.....throughout this pandemic and if anyone deserves a stroke of luck, it must surely be you.

A few more days with your grandson and dau is hopefully a bit of compensation.
