Donna became ill, at home, on Tuesday 11/17/2020. She was admitted to the ICU at Swedish Issaquah Hospital that afternoon. She was diagnosed with a blood clot in her Right lung, Pneumonia, and bacterial infection in her blood and her urine. Thankfully, she tested negative for COVID-19. Early morning on Wednesday, 11/18, Donna needed to be intubated and placed on a ventilator. Her fever was as high as 105, before the antibiotics took control of the infections. Fortunately, she was able to come off the ventilator and breathe on her own by the afternoon of 11/19. Her condition improved enough by Saturday, 11/21, that she was transferred out of the ICU, to a Medical Unit.
