While COVID-19 patient Julie Anne Lingan remains at Southlake Regional Health Centre, she wants everyone to know she is OK.

She shared a post to the Bradford Mammas Facebook group thanking the community and her nurse for their support. 

"Thank you all for your prayers. It was such a journey that hasn’t ended yet," she wrote. "I'm still here in the hospital trying to walk and get better. I have an amazing nurse."

She said her husband, who also tested positive for COVID-19, and her twins are doing well and wanted to thank the community for their support. 

Lingan was admitted to Southlake March 17 after experiencing shortness of breath and testing positive for COVID-19. She has been on a ventilator in ICU, until last Thursday. 

Her husband, Mark, was in self-isolation at home for two weeks, while their children stayed with family. He has since recovered. 

"Once I’m back, and this virus is gone, I hope to have a barbecue in the backyard. I really appreciate all the prayers sent my way," said Lingan. 

"Let's continue to pray for her complete healing," said her mom, Marvie Alday.
