Staff at Metro Health in Wyoming had something to celebrate as a 79-year-old woman was discharged after beating COVID-19.

Catherine Yeaw, as MLive reports, was already one of the most vulnerable patients when it comes to novel coronavirus as she is 79 years old and has asthma and COPD.

Her daughter, Marie Moran, called her a "tough cookie" as Yeaw came out victorious twice from "dire circumstances" caused by having COVID-19.

Nurses and medical staff at Metro Health lined up in the hallway as Yeaw was wheeled to the elevator to make her way out of the hospital after she initially tested positive on March 24th.

Yeaw does still have to spend a few weeks finishing up her recovery at a rehabilitation center/nursing home but Moran called her mothers' recovery "nothing short of miraculous."

You go Catherine!
