    Hope you're doing okay Eric, and all others. Things are well down here and I'm reminded to not take it for granted.

    Hello my friends. I found out yesterday that I
    have COVID-19. I have shut myself away from
    my world. Staying away from my grocery store
    job. Staying away from my Wife. I can’t even
    pet my cat. Just me out in the den. I feel strange.
    Very different then other illnesses I have had before.
    Please, please take care of yourselves and your
    Loved ones. Let me know how you are doing ok.

    Sorry to hear that, Eric. My wife and I have been super cautious since we brought our little girl home. She's two months old today! I went back to work only three weeks after she was born. I manage a nice restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale, AZ. We are very clean and follow our own guidelines such as the server assistants never touch clean plates or food, food runners never touch dirty dishes or glasses, and gloves and masks are worn at all times, even after close when it's just the crew.

    I tell you all this because my wife has been at home with the little one for two months now and we just had our first COVID scare a couple days ago... from her mom. It makes me so mad because her mom is NOT cautious. She believes in these ridiculous conspiracy theories (like COVID is actually being spread intentionally by the doctors and nurses that administer the tests) and she never wears her mask properly (she's always touching it and pulling it away from her face letting her nose hang out). And she was here in our home, holding our baby the day before she found out she has COVID. I'm beyond pissed about it. My wife already got her test results back and they are negative, but the doctor said she should come back later if she feels symptomatic since she may have tested too early to tell. Needless to say she's worried sick about getting our baby sick. Ugh...

    I wish for you a quick, painless recovery, my friend. Keep us up to date.

    I just got over COVID a week ago Eric. Hang in there dude. Mine was a minor case according to my doctor but the fever sucked, loss of smell & taste really sucked and I developed a nasty cough which was the worst. I hope you cruise through it.

    Not sure if Lonny or anyone else would care, but here's little baby Macy!

    I think of us all like brothers with a few sisters here on the forum. I talk and share with you all here more than some of my good friends in my own city. Granted, this past year has been a difficult one to navigate with COVID and having a baby, but still, I'm always happy to hear from our crew here.

    I hope someone is taking care of Lonny's gear for him... I thought about this the other day while I was cleaning out my drum room. What the hell is my wife going to do with all my drums?! I'm most certainly going to pass before she does... I know that's a little morbid, but I think about that stuff all the time.

    I'm so sorry that both of you have had to go through the experience of having COVID-19.
    Even if it's thankfully the "mild", non Emergency Room/ICU version of it, I wouldn't wish it upon anyone.

    Congratulations Josh,
    Little Macy looks like a beautiful bundle of joy!

    Here in the Red Glass MCX thread we are all family.
    Sure, we talk about our love of drums, but we also discuss many aspects of our lives, with a mutual kinship and respect for one another.

    Lonny would have loved that you chose to share your pictures of Macy with us here.

    That's a heck of a sly little smile at the end there. Cute kid, Josh! Congrats!

    Hope you have a speedy recovery, Eric! I've heard even at its mildest, the symptoms can be pretty rough.

    Thanks all! We are just in love with her!

    Eric, I hope you're feeling better today and much better tomorrow! My mother in law has been feeling better every day since Sunday.
