I am sorry you aren't able to hug your grandchildren, Susan. Mine are too far away to hug, regardless of Covid.
From what I understand, Tej is near her family but because of Covid restrictions, only her husband can be present for their son's birth. So, the others will see him when he is brought home from the hospital.
Yes, Covid's tentacles reach in many directions. I think we will feel its effects even more when the holiday season approaches. I stopped celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas when my daughter and grandchildren moved, but we usually had one or two dinners to attend. Won't be doing that this year.
