Tomorrow is DDs birthday.

This will be the first time we have not been with her on her birthday. The staff at her home said she packed her suitcase and said she was going home after we FaceTimed on Saturday. She’s carrying her suitcase with her everywhere. Stupid caronavirus!

OMG----I am so sorry this is happening to your DD. I guess you can't visit her in person; and standing outside a window tallking with her probably would not be good in her situation. I will send positive thoughts for your DD and her birthday celebration.

BTW---can you send her flowers? Is it something she would appreciate?

Well, darn. It has to be hard when she just doesn't understand why she can't visit with you. I hope she can have a good day anyhow, and you too.

And how are you doing? More mobile?

I’m sorry. This mess is hard on those of us who do understand—I really feel for her and wish there was a way for you to be together.

Oh man, this breaks my heart. In reality, will she be ok, or do you need ideas to help her? Flowers? Balloon bouquet?

Aw, that's so hard! It breaks my heart that she is carrying her suitcase around, waiting to go home for her birthday. I'm sad for your family, that you won't be together for this special day. I hope she has a wonderful birthday.

I'm so sorry that you won't be able to see each other for her birthday. Stupid virus! I hope that she's able to have a great day anyway (and you as well).

She loves Dairy Queen Ice cream cakes. We ordered a unicorn cake with her name on it. She can still have a party with her friends. We just cant be there.

It's a difficult time

Oh, Linda! I'm so sorry to read that your daughter had her heart set, and her suitcase packed, for a visit with her family for her birthday! I hope the special unicorn cake helps to let her know you were thinking of her, but I understand it's just not the same when family is not around.

I hope you will be gentle with yourselves, as parents, realizing that these circumstances of the coronavirus are absolutely changing years of traditions for so many of us. You, along with many others of us, are doing the best you can.
