- A 90-year-old woman is bringing inspiration to the family of elderly COVID patients after recovering from the virus
- Aside from this, she also recovered from stroke and a broken hip this year
- The woman from Washington said this is a gift from God because His work on her is not done yet
Saying that she still has a lot to live for, a 90-year-old woman from Washington recovered from COVID-19.
In an interview with Good Morning America, Geneva Wood’s family members said that aside from the virus, she already made it through other challenges this year — she spent the first months of the year recovering from str0ke. She also fell and broke her hip just as she was about to be discharged. And then, the confirmation about her contracting COVID came.
“With her str0ke, she lost all ability to take care of herself and at Life Care Center they taught her how to live again. And then we got that [COVID-19] news and we were like, ‘Are you kidding me?'” her daughter Cami Neidigh said in an interview with Good Morning America.
The doctors even informed the family that Geneva may only have 24 hours to live.
“That time, we were one of the lucky families who could suit up and go in one-by-one and hold her hand, but not hug her, and she could talk to us. She was telling us her goodbyes on the 10th and the next day, on the 11th, the rules changed and she was in total isolation,” Neidigh said.
In a series of Instagram posts, her great great granddaughter shared updates about Geneva.
On March 23, she said that after a series of tests, Geneva has been officially declared coronavirus free. “In Geneva’s words, ‘This is a gift from God, his work is not done with me just yet!'” the post said.
Geneva’s victory is bringing hope to the family of other COVID patients. “She is being called ‘The Nation’s Grandma’ and ‘The Face of the Fight’ and we could not be more proud of you, Geneva the Great!”
