On August 10, 2020, my world was shattered. My father passed away from Covid-19. He spent exactly three weeks in the hospital, with his last 9 days being spent fighting for his life on a vent. Prior to his passing, he, my mom, my daughter, and I had all tested positive. We had tested upon learning of his positive result. He, my mom, and myself ended up hospitalized, due to our symptoms. I was discharged from the hospital the day he was transferred to the ICU and placed on a vent. [We] continued to process through our own recoveries, and continued to struggle as we mourn the loss of my father.
