Frank was the kindest man, devoted father, son, and an amazing husband!
Frank was diagnosed with COVID-19 on October 1, 2020. He was hospitalized in the COVID-19 unit five days later and came home 5 days after that.
I have always considered myself healthy and hearty. When I heard about COVID, I figured if I got it, I would be asymptomatic and unaffected. I was 38 when I tested positive for COVID in early November 2020, and I was wrong about how it would go.
I was hospitalized for 30 days and spent 11 days on a ventilator. I suffered a retroperitoneal hemorrhage and a plexopathy that impeded my left femoral nerve and left my left leg pretty much paralyzed.
I was a CNA and CMA at our local nursing home. My mother was a resident there. I quit my job when she entered the facility and began working there so I could be with her and help care for her. The facility was hiring a lot of travel aides from all over the country due to staff shortage. That’s how the virus got into our facility.
