She’s not completely clear yet and is still testing positive, but this is an enormous turnaround from what everyone was expecting.
I'm glad to hear that she's turning a corner, and will continue to hope for the best. Sad to hear of your others. As far as I know I haven't lost anyone within my orbit yet, though my wife is already both immune- and lung-compromised, so if she gets it that's that. And my folks both have heart problems. So we're all collectively scared shitless.

The only casualties, so far, are (1) one of my cats, who died unexpectedly from an issue that we would have had a vet check out sooner but for COVID; and (2) my Sunday D&D group, which is probably dead for good since a couple of the players are relocating. Overall that's not such a bad tally, and I know others have been hit considerably harder.
When all is said and done, more is generally said than is done.
Ask me anything - no, really - but be warned: I will answer. If you didn't want to know... don't ask.

D&D via Discord/Zoom with Roll20 or D&D Beyond works relatively well to keep things running if needed.

And now my COVID-truther brother has it and is hospitalized on 6L O2/min, about the max flow for a nasal cannula. May have heart and/or liver damage from it. His wife also has it, just not bad enough to get hospitalized. Fortunately, his numbers are improving and he may be able to go home in a week or so with an oxygen cart. He just moved to Texas a couple of weeks ago. My mother, who is right on the edge of being a truther, decided that he got it while driving through El Paso, not from the COVID-positive neighbor that helped him pack.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.
