What’s the best way to celebrate recovering from COVID-19? A good bottle of rum, according to a 92-year-old woman in Canada.
Hickey’s daughter wrote, “It has been a terrifying and tearful 14 days to say the least for all of us, not knowing what day the dreaded COVID-19 virus would get a grip on her.”
She thanked neighbours for their thoughtful messages, phone calls and gifts, saying that the strength her mother drew from them was essential to her recovery.
“Because all COVID-19 stories unfortunately don’t have a happy ending like our Mom’s story, I cannot stress enough the importance of following the rules,” Hickey wrote.
