'I knew that I was dying': a touching story of a 90-year-old American who defeated coronavirus
One of the first major coronavirus outbreaks in the United States occurred in a nursing home near Seattle. At least 39 people passed away at the Center for Elderly Care in Kirkland. But not the 90-year-old Geneva Wood — despite forecasts and statistics, she managed to survive, says CBS News.
Geneva Wood lived a long and eventful life. A 90-year-old mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother survived wars and recessions, but nearly died from a coronavirus.
“I didn’t want to eat, — she shares her feelings during the illness. — I didn’t eat from Monday to Friday! ”
According to her daughter, Kami Neidi, given her age, her mother’s diagnosis was considered a “death sentence”. Doctors agreed with the family, so everyone was preparing for the worst and were sure that the woman would not survive the terrible disease.
“The next day we came to say goodbye to her, recalls Neidi. — I told my mother: “You fought a difficult battle.”
“I knew that I was dying, — Wood answered when asked what she was talking to with her family. — But I left in peace and wanted them to know how I love them and how good it was for me to be with them. ”

But Wood survived. According to the woman, a prayer and a bowl of soup from her children helped her to recover.
“Of course, potato soup. You know, all my life when I was sick, I only wanted potato soup ”, — she admitted.
Now the woman has returned home — to the place she calls "heaven on earth."
“It's great to be able to reach out and touch my children, hug them or give them a kick!” — said Wood laughing.
