On Sept. 23, her husband Keith Michael stated that she was receiving an antiviral and convalescent plasma at a local hospital. She was also placed on a ventilator.
At that time, there was some hope she would recover:
“Most people don’t understand that COVID-19 and pneumonia go hand in hand,” he said. “The best news of the day is that they have decided to start seeing if she can tolerate coming off the ventilator.”
By Tuesday, Sept. 27, he reported she had taken a turn for the worse.
“Her numbers have all gone backwards,” he said on Facebook. “Her oxygen percentage was down to 40-45% and went up to 90% over the weekend. It is now down around 70%.”
