Calapan Councilor Rona Leachon details COVID 19 survival
Calapan Councilor Rona Leachon is a COVID 19 survivor and is grateful for another chance at life.
Leachon talked about her journey in battling the disease in a Facebook post.
According to her she had fought to stay alive, although she had been ready to give up at the beginning.
She told herself that she had to get through the illness for the sake of her children, family, friends, and her work in public service.
Her husband, Rep. Doy Leachon who also got COVID 19, gave her love and support that provided her with the will to fight on.
At one point, she thought that she would have to make her last will and testament, which was the worst feeling she had ever experienced, she recalled.
Now that she is over the illness, she feels lucky to be alive and appreciates life more.
Her 21-day quarantine is over and she is out of danger.
She cannot wait to breathe fresh air and enjoy the natural beauty of the world, she said.
She will continue helping her constituents, she added.
She is ready to make the most out of life!
“The woman behind the mask is a covid-19 survivor.🙏🏼
I had fought to stay alive. After being almost ready to give up at the start, I had told myself: “No, I’ve got to carry on, I’m not going yet. I’m only 48, I’m not ready to die, not just for me but for my kids, my family, friends & my work as a public servant. My husband who was then experiencing the same intensity had showed me constantly his love and support, and that gave me the will to fight it.
I thought I won’t be able to see the brightest stars & lightness again, that came to a point that I need to tell my “huling habilin” That’s the worst feeling I have felt in my whole life but It is not my attitude to bother anyone whenever I feel hurt.
I almost touched death and I’m very lucky to be alive. What I’m now looking forward to is to appreciate this beautiful life. You’ll realise material things don’t matter.
Now, that my 21 days home quarantine is over & finally I am out of danger, I am ready to get outside, I want to breathe the air, and enjoy the natural beauty of the world. Thank you LORD.. I’ve been given a #second #chance. God is really good. Thank you everyone for the prayers. Keep safe everyone! Mahalin ang sarili. Health is wealth.
