COVID-19 survivor regaining strength at
UofL Health - Frazier Rehabilitation Institute
LaTranza Hicks had a stubborn headache, extreme fatigue and lost her sense of taste. She had a friend drive her to UofL Hospital, where she was diagnosed with COVID-19. LaTranza ended up on a ventilator and woke up nearly a month later in the ICU. She was scared, not knowing what had happened. She says she learned her nurses by their shoes, since she couldn’t see their faces. When it was time for LaTranza to leave UofL Hospital for UofL Health - Frazier Rehabilitation Institute, the team put together a survivor walk for her. She says that show of support made her heart smile.
Now, at Frazier Rehab, LaTranza is regaining the strength she lost while battling COVID-19. She’s doing well and doctors hope she will go home soon. LaTranza is eternally grateful for everyone at UofL Health who helped her fight the virus.
