WINCHESTER, Ky. (LEX 18)– Nearly three weeks after she was admitted to the hospital with COVID-19, Wendy Moore, 53, is still struggling to breathe.
Moore stated that the virus is “scary” to her. Moore said, “I’m beginning to worry about my health. I’m worried about what’s going on.”
Moore wasn’t worried about the virus before her diagnosis. She was not interested in getting vaccinated.
She said, “I never, ever ever, ever leave home except to go to appointments.” “So, the fact that it was me that caught it, we were in shock.”
Moore believes that she may have contracted COVID-19 while living with one of her four grandsons, who also includes her daughter and son in law.
Moore stated that her health was rapidly declining.
“I was just asleep all the while and my oxygen level kept falling,” she said.[My daughter] “I decided to go to the hospital.
Moore was admitted at Clark Regional Medical Center in Kentucky and given a variety of medications. Moore was also able not to be placed on a ventilator.
Moore thought she was on the right track after she was discharged, but her breathing troubles returned.
“Now I need [my oxygen] again because I’m starting to lose my breath again,” she said.
Moore was able to take a lot time in isolation and reflect on the past as well as think about the future. Moore wishes she would have joined her son-in-law and daughter-in-law to get vaccinated. They were the only ones who didn’t get sick when the virus spread to their home.
She said, “I was definitely wrong” when she was asked about the vaccine. “I definitely am going to take [the vaccine] now.”
