JENNIE STEJNA, 103 YEAR OLD GRANDMA, BEATS CORONAVIRUS AND CELEBRATES WITH A BUD LIGHT
So Coronavirus is all about the numbers. The younger you are, the better off you are. Especially if you catch it. If you smoke, those numbers are bad. If you have other health problems, bad. Pretty much, you want to be young, don’t have Type-A blood, and be a woman. But Jennie Stejna defied all the numbers against her. She’s not young, and that’s saying something. She was born 103 years ago! The Polish grandma and great-grandma just beat Covid-19. And the first thing she did to celebrate was polish off a cold Bud Light. Now that’s style I can agree with. Well, maybe that’s not my beer of choice. But who knows?
SICK FOR 3 WEEKS, GRANDMA SAID HER GOODBYES, THEN SHE DEFIED THE ODDS
So it was three weeks before when Jennie Stejna found out that she had Coronavirus in her nursing home. As you might imagine, she had a low-grade fever. At her age, that’s some seriously scary stuff. So she moved into a new ward for safety. But Jennie Stejna didn’t really understand Coronavirus or that she had it. But she did know she was pretty damn sick. If nothing else, the fact someone was always at her bedside made that clear. And then her sickness got worse. So much so, that she said her goodbyes to all her family. But then she beat the numbers in grand fashion.
LIFELONG RED SOX FAN JENNIE STEJNA HOISTED A BUD LIGHT WELL AND PROPER FOR RECOVERY
Her family was thrilled to get the call on May 13th that the oldest member of the family beat Coronavirus. It was welcome news, indeed. To celebrate, staff at the home gave her a Bud Light to enjoy. She loves Bud Light and hadn’t had one in a long time. But the feisty Lifelong Red Sox fan is only the first in her nursing home to recover. 33 other people there are still fighting their battles against the deadly infection. Let’s hope there are 33 more bottles of Bud Light waiting for them to enjoy, and soon.
