Mum got her results back today and she is negative for covid 19 which is good news. The results were back quickly and within 24 hours. As she suspected it is probably just a simple cold, and she will be able to return back to work 24 hours after she feels better.
She got lots of texts from friends and made a couple of phone calls today, which is always nice to laugh with friends when they can't get together. She made herself a tasty dinner of a pork chop with potatoes and salad, and mixed herself a vodka and fruit juice. She watched JoJo Rabbit and thinks she will sleep much better tonight, as long as her coughing does not wake her up too much.
Thank you for all the well wishes - mum was very grateful for your kindness.
