Woman with Down syndrome given little chance of survival recovers from coronavirus

When doctors informed Zoila Argudo that her daughter, Pamela, had coronavirus, Zoila was devastated.

“It was terrible for me. My legs almost fell down,” she told WSVN.

Pamela has Down syndrome and while the genetic disorder doesn’t specifically put her more at risk, there are other factors that could increase her risk.

It also didn’t help that Pamela’s doctor told Zoila there was “no hope” for Pamela.

Shortly after Pamela was admitted to Kendall Regional Hospital in Miami, Florida, she had to be intubated.

“I really was lost without my daughter,” Zoila said.

All she could do was stand by and pray as her 36-year-old daughter fought for her life.

"I just have a lot of faith in God. I believe in God. I'm sorry. But I… It was the best thing being in this hospital. They did a very, very nice job. Excellent!”

Finally, after 10 days in the ICU and 15 days in the hospital, Pamela was released from the hospital.

“I just have a lot of faith in God. I believe in God. It was the best thing being in this hospital. They did a very, very nice job. Excellent,” Zoila said.

Thank goodness Pamela is recovered and thank goodness her mother continued to have faith and did not listen to her daughter’s doctor who did not believe she would survive!
