The Lund Family
My husband, Jamie, and I have two spunky boys. Dempsey is 9 and Elwood is 6. In March of 2021, Dempsey started having seizures and we have been on a long road to figuring out why and how to control them. This included ambulance rides to other towns and even a life-flight to the Children's hospital in SD. As we have been dealing with the stress of an ill child and the financial issues associated with his eventual epilepsy diagnosis, my husband contracted Covid19. He ended up being hospitalized with 98% of his lungs infected with Covid-pnumonia. He was admitted on October 25th and remains in the ICU, in isolation. The boys and I have not been able to see him at all. He is still on the highest amount of oxygen, so they cannot move him from ICU and we cannot see him. The boys have returned to school and I have been trying to provide them with all the normalcy of life, but they miss their daddy terribly and I am trying to navigate all that comes with running a household with one parent. Covid recovery is a long, slow road and we do not know when Jamie will return home to us.
