Road to Recovery

Apr 28, 2021

Hello, my name is Paola, and one year ago tomorrow, my life was what I thought forever changed. I was the 2nd positive test for COVID in Young County. I do not wish this virus on anyone. I was admitted to OHH and later sent to Medical City in North Richland Hills, Tx. I spent 30 days on a ventilator, and a total of 79 days in the hospital. I was so frail and had to relearn everything from walking independently to eating and speaking. Upon discharge from the hospital I was admitted in the outpatient therapy program at Olney Hamilton Hospital. Everything seemed to be an uphill battle. For the past year, I have been in and out of hospitals several times, however today I am being discharged from therapy as I have met all my physical, occupational and speech goals. I look back and am so grateful that this team of therapist at Olney never lost faith in me and constantly encouraged my healing. As I exit the facility today, with my FREEDOM regained, it is not goodbye; it’s see you later, because I will not ever forget my team that help aid in my recovery! Thank you Olney Rehab Center.
