I’m in awe of you all on here. So many of us with our beloved adult children who are on the front line. My daughter and her husband are GPs, but have both been told that they will have to go back to hospital work, giving palliative care to the sick and dying. My daughter has also been told she may be ventilator trained and therefore working with the sickest patients. I know I should be proud, but instead I’m terrified. I’m terrified of them catching this awful disease and then what could happen. They’re young and strong, my daughter trains for and runs marathons, but I’m still so afraid. They have three young children, six year old twins and a two year old.
My son is also apparently a key worker, he is a lawyer, but luckily he thinks most of his work will be done through video link. He says the justice system can’t just stop. I guess he’s right. He’s out of London now and working from home. I just hope he doesn’t have to go to court in London during this time.
My other son could work from home much of the time, he’s not a key worker, but his boos refuses to allow his employees to work from home. So they all put themselves at risk because the boss doesn’t want to follow government advice.
But the ones I’m most worried about are my daughter and her husband.
