“Feeling super thankful to God today! This time last month, we were going through a very scary period! Almost everyone in our house (including myself) tested positive for Covid-19,” she tweeted.https://pulsembed.eu/p2em/amIETM8p0/about:blank
“I was just about to return to work after my maternity, and it all started with Captain complaining of ‘malaria-like’ symptoms. He had them for a few days, and didn’t seem to get any better…so we ended up taking him to hospital.”https://pulsembed.eu/p2em/XIIMd1048/
“He had taken a Covid-19 test a few days before which was negative, so I thought it was a bad case of malaria. He was admitted with malaria and a bacterial infection we were told. After being given intravenous antibiotics and other meds he still wasn’t getting better.”https://pulsembed.eu/p2em/S-d-ptR3i/
“I decided to move him to a different hospital, and they tested again, and he ‘blew up’ the test according to the doctor. My body went cold, and my first thought was ‘OMG the babies!!’. Then a short while later, I thought about myself. I did a rapid test, and it was positive.”https://pulsembed.eu/p2em/YM0PySDgF/
“The weirdest thing was the taste and smell thing. Everything Captain had tasted bad, he’s a foodie so that was strange. One of my superpowers is my sense of smell…and it just gradually faded. I actually put a bottle of bleach under my nose one day and…nothing.”https://pulsembed.eu/p2em/132ZbLoR6/
“Captain on the other hand felt super rundown, couldn’t keep food down, had cramping all over and a bunch of other symptoms. After a week, he came back home, and we finished our isolation period together.”https://pulsembed.eu/p2em/jlibOr9jL/
“After 2 weeks we all retested and were all thankfully Negative. Thanks to Almighty God for seeing us through, a big thank you to the doctors that looked after us… especially Dr Majekodunmi of Eurocare for the constant reassurance, and for taking my a million and one calls.”https://pulsembed.eu/p2em/Io_x2EF2d/
