Love in Isolation, Day Six, Ellis

Day Six

Dear Bronte,

I’m sorry it’s taken me all day to respond to your last email. I’m afraid I have bad news. I woke up this morning with a fever and dry cough and all the other symptoms of this virus. I called my doctor and he said not to come in unless I start to have trouble breathing. There are no tests and he doesn’t want me infecting other patients.

I’m not sure how I got it other than it must have been on my last day in the office. I haven’t felt well enough to inquire after the others. This is the first that I’ve been able to move from the couch.

I’ve been laying here feeling rather sorry for myself. It’s hard to go through this life alone, isn’t it? I wish I had someone to look after me. Like my father before me, I’m a baby when it comes to being sick.

Sending this now…
