When we announced on Friday March 27th that we were going to extend the podcast for two additional weeks, I was so excited! At the time, I was brewing on a cold, but I thought it wouldn’t be too bad and that I would be able to follow up with the daily podcasts even if I might feel a little under the weather for a few days. However, by April 2nd, it was clear to us that I had more than just a cold, so we decided to postpone the podcast and to seek out some medical assistance. Two days later, I got the results from the medical examinations and it was now a fact that I had tested positive for COVID-19.
Our quarantine has now been upgraded to isolation at home for a few more weeks, while I recover from the virus. The first 10 days of my illness were very tough on my health, as I have experienced flu-like symptoms including high fever and great muscle pain. Luckily, I have had no respiratory issues. I am on the mend now, the fever has been gone for a few days now and I’ve started to gain my appetite again and hopefully I will have recovered fully by next week. I can’t wait to restart the podcast again and will let you know as soon as I am 100% back again and ready to go!
It has been very heart warming to read all your messages and lovely comments and so nice to know that so many of you care about me! Thanks so much for your kindness!
Arne and I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter! This whole ordeal will pass and we can’t wait to go back to giving out hugs again soon! We may be isolated, but we are not alone.
ARNE & CARLOS
PS: Because we live in the same house, Arne was also tested for COVID-19 but his test came out negative.
