WINCHESTER, Kentucky. (LEX 18)– Nearly three weeks after being hospitalized with COVID-19, Wendy Moore, 53, still struggles to breathe.
Moore stated, “It scares my.” “I’m beginning to worry about my health, and what’s going on.”
Moore wasn’t concerned about contracting the disease before her diagnosis. Moore was also not interested getting vaccinated.
She said, “I never leave my home to go to appointments.” “So, the fact that it was me, was a shock.
Moore believes that she contracted COVID-19 through one of her grandchildren. She lives with her daughter, son-in law, and her granddaughter.
Moore said that her health was rapidly deteriorating.
“I was sleeping all the time and my oxygen levels kept dropping,” she recalls. “[My daughter] I decided that I needed to be admitted to the hospital.
Moore was admitted at Clark Regional Medical Center in Kentucky and was treated with a mix of drugs. Moore was not placed on a ventilator, but was able avoid this by using the medications.
Moore thought she was on the right track after being discharged, but her breathing issues returned.
“Now I Need” [my oxygen] because I’m starting to get breathless again,” she said.
Moore has been isolated but has had ample time to look back on the past and plan for the future. She wishes she could have joined her son-in-law and daughter to get vaccinated. Their home was infected with the virus, but they were the only ones not to get it.
She said, “I was absolutely wrong” when she was asked about vaccines. “I’m definitely going [the vaccine] now.”
