The power of gratitude: COVID survivor thanks St. Alphonsus ICU staff
Last year Torena Sauer was a patient at Saint Alphonsus hospital, despite taking all the necessary precautions, she caught COVID-19 and pneumonia.
Struggling to breathe, she was admitted to the intensive care unit unsure if she would live. She did live though and just a few months ago returned to Saint Alphonsus, not as a patient, but as a visitor. She had come back to show her appreciation to her care team with a gift, a piece of art portraying the tree of life.
Torena along with Dr. Joshua Holweger, a member of her care team, joins Idaho Matters to talk more about this story.
