Some of you may remember my post about my nephew, Hudson. I had a cute picture to post, but for some reason my Kindle won't let me add an image (feel free to suggest reasons why that is). Anyway, he's adopted, and has fetal alcohol syndrome. So his latest surgery was removing his tonsils and adenoids. After they took him home they had to keep him in 14 days of isolation. So the entire family couldn't leave the house together for two weeks. My brother-in-law would work from home a few days while my sister took their daughter to physical therapy (also adopted, Amyra was premature, but she's almost completely "normal" with a few exceptions: physical therapy is required because she prefers to walk on her "tiptoes", as being premature affected how tight her hamstrings are, and walking on the soles of her feet is not completely comfortable). Of course, then only one parent would go to church with Amyra, and the other couldn't leave the house. No matter what, Hudson couldn't leave home. The isolation ended yesterday, and they all went out to dinner to celebrate. I asked my sister if not going outside bothered Hudson, and she said he didn't even notice. It made me wonder how long you've been purposefully kept from leaving a place. Friday, because of concrete work, I couldn't leave my apartment for 12 hours, which wasn't bad except that meant my dog couldn't either. Being sick we've all obviously been confined for days, but how long have you been isolated out of necessity?

Why did he have to be isloated? From having that surgery? If so, I've never heard of that before, and have had at least 6 kids I know have that surgery. So that's interesting.. Never been confinded to home unless you count having to wait at home a few hours for comcast, or about 4-6 hours four maintenance people here to fix something. Lol. Otherwise, just last month for around a week when I was sick with the flu. And willingly, by just not wanting to go anywhere many times. Lol

After reading some of the responses, I guess I have been isolated, but I didn't think of it that way. Blizzards kept me in for a couple of days a few years ago and I was in the hospital 5 days last year. That's about it, though other than a few times when the car was in being repaired and I couldn't go anywhere. I hardly noticed, though, since I don't go much anyway
