KMBC: 82-year-old is celebrated as he leaves Saint Luke's East after battling COVID-19
Lanny, 82, was admitted to Saint Luke's East Hospital for increasing shortness of breath. He was in the Intensive Care Unit and on a ventilator prior to getting strong enough to move to our Progressive Care Unit!
Lanny said he was blessed by God himself to have been cared for by the best team of healthcare workers he could ask for and thanked his care team for saving his life!
His family drove in separate cars to cheer on their beloved Lanny for his remarkable recovery as he was wheeled out of the hospital!
It is stories like Lanny's that keep Saint Luke's care teams feel rejuvenated to keep fighting the fight against COVID-19. These moments make it all worthwhile!
