Hilary Lee, a 35-year-old Montana woman, spent seven weeks in the hospital with a severe case of COVID. On the day after Thanksgiving, she was able to walk out of Billings Clinic on her own.
Hilary, a restaurant manager, was planning to get the COVID vaccine but contracted the illness at the end of September. Within two weeks she was on a ventilator.
"I was a nurse for over 40 years, and so I knew this could happen," said her mother Pam.
