A Michigan mother has finally awakened from a medically induced coma after more than 2 weeks since experiencing “severe damage” caused by COVID-19.
Jasmine Logan who is 31 years old from Detroit, was hospitalized after contracting the virus while pregnant with her second set of twins, who were delivered prematurely so Logan could fight COVID-19.
Her husband, Steven Logan, is thankful that Jasmine’s condition seemed to be improving as she was also able to be taken off of the ventilator. She will have to undergo physical and speech therapy before she can be released from ECMO. Steven remains confident his wife will get through it.
“I know that with the prayers that have been bestowed upon us she will muster the strength! We are claiming this victory and have all the faith that God will deliver. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU,” Steven wrote on a GoFundMe page.
Steven, who works as a truck driver, hasn’t been able to go to work as he has to take care of their 5 kids, including their newborn twins. Their 6-year old daughter, and twin 2-year olds, also contracted COVID-19.
With the help of some friends, Steven set up the GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for their family’s financial needs such as bills, food, and baby supplies. It has so far raised more than $120,000.
