"For about 18 months my Medical Doctor has managed to steer clear of the dreaded Covid-19 virus but a couple of days ago he (read we) tested positive. What a crazy, HECTIC experience but as you can understand I am well taken care of. Today is a good day and with each day of this rollercoaster ride that passes I feel more and more like myself. We are on the mend and would like to thank all our friends and family for the prayers. We are slowly but surely healing day by day," she wrote on Instagram.
