Our mother, Karen, tested positive for COVID-19 on 12/31/2020 and checked into the ER on January 2, 2021 with chest tightness, increased shortness of breath and low oxygen. On January 6, she was having trouble maintaining her oxygen levels, so her care staff decided it was time to transfer her to the ICU and place her on a ventilator. It will take weeks, if not months, for her to recover.
Karen's illness has been especially difficult for our family since we just lost our grandfather (Karen's father Merlin) to COVID on 12/21/2020. Please continue to send well-wishes and prayers for her recovery. We desperately need her to get better!
We truly appreciate you thinking of her, and of us, at this time. And we cannot thank her medical care team enough for everything they are doing for our mother. ♥️
