When she was battling Covid-19 in the hospital, she took the time to order him new slippers because hers had broken, Mr Muhammed said. During her last conversation with her, she told him that she was going to help him go to college.
“Even until the end, she was thinking of other people,” said Mr. Muhammed.
The hospital released her on December 7, he said, and she was slow and tired when she got home. The hospital called several times to check on her, he said, and when she didn’t answer, he dispatched an ambulance. Her mother could barely walk and was breathing heavily when the ambulance arrived. She was taken to another hospital 12 hours after being released from the previous one, she said on Facebook.
