'Coronavirus-free': 90-year-old grandmother returns home to family

The family all said their goodbyes to Geneva Wood in what seemed like her last days. But the 90-year-old kept fighting.

While the world is still struggling to comprehend and manage the coronavirus pandemic, there is a happy story to share from the West coast: A 90-year-old grandmother has fully recovered from COVID-19 and is now home with family.

The last few months have been hard on Geneva Wood and her family. Wood spent much of the winter recovering from a stroke at The Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington. By February, the 90-year-old improved so much doctors planned to send her home on March 2. But the Saturday before her release, the facility went on lockdown because of COVID-19. Then on March 5, Wood spiked a fever.

Wood’s health quickly deteriorated and the family said their goodbyes through a pane of glass. But then something amazing happened: Wood started improving.

“It was pretty surreal,” Kate said. “She’s making these requests. She said, ‘I need homemade potato soup,’ and is delegating things to family members.”

“She is absolutely tough as nails,” James Neidigh, 35, Wood’s grandson told TODAY. “She is definitely the type of person who could make it through anything.”

From stroke to the unknown
When Wood first entered the nursing facility in January, she couldn’t use her right side, walk, talk, feed or dress herself from the stroke. But she pushed herself and slowly regained much of her abilities.

“It was a great experience,” James explained. “She learned how to basically walk and talk and feed herself.”

But she fell and went to a local hospital. Then the family learned she had a fever and would be tested for coronavirus. They truly started worrying.

“That started things in a different direction,” James said.

On March 6, the family said they learned Wood tested positive for coronavirus. They were stunned.

“For her to fight back from that stroke and to go through all that rehab … and it’s a stupid virus that is going to take her out, of all things, it was just shocking,” daughter Cami Neidigh, 60, told TODAY. “It was like I can’t believe this is the way she is going to go.”

'There is hope'
But Wood had other plans. She started to recover, and in late March her family reported that after a series of tests she was officially "coronavirus-free."

“Everybody was surprised because she was in such bad shape. Nobody thought she was going to survive,” Cami said. “She wanted us to be proud of her. She didn’t want us to think she was going to give up.”
