What happened when the plague of all plagues came knocking on one Texas family’s door…
The ro came in on little cat feet. And before he knew it, Michael Masden had to face the fact that his healthy 10-year-old son Matthew had…
Wait for it…
An elevated temperature (actual temperature undisclosed) and “symptoms of a cold.”
As opposed to an actual, you know, cold, because the plague doesn’t JUST CAUSE COLDS, OKAY?
The non-cold cold was a game-changer.
How indeed? Because the worst fears of this stay-at-home dad were about to come true.
Sars-Cov-2 spread through the house, including to his 84-year-old mother.
Two of the infected had no symptoms.
But the other three, including Michael himself, faced days of symptoms. Brace yourself:
Everyone survived, barely, but it’s an experience the family won’t soon forget.
Or maybe they will?
Whew. Close call.
I may need to reconsider my stance on vaccine mandates.
