“Every day is a better day. Joseph had a wonderful night’s sleep and [is] still fever free. Thank you God!” – Sabrina Bostain [#ThankYouGod]
A 6-year-old from Tennessee who has cystic fibrosis has beaten the coronavirus, he said in a video his mother posted to Facebook.
“Thank you for all the cards and the prayers and the gifts,” Joseph Bostain says at the start of the video. “I’m a cystic fibrosis warrior, and I beat COVID-19.”
With a grin and a flourish, Joseph Bostain flexes his right bicep at the end.
Joseph Bostain’s mother, Sabrina Bostain, posted about her son’s diagnosis on March 19, 2020 after it was confirmed, asking her Facebook friends for prayers and to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Joseph Bostain’s early symptoms included a fever, cough and fatigue.
In the 2 weeks that followed, Sabrina Bostain posted regular updates on his condition and thanks for the gifts and care packages people had shipped to her son.
By March 28, 2020, Joseph Bostain’s fever had broken for good.
“Every day is a better day. Joseph had a wonderful night’s sleep and [is] still fever free. Thank you God!”
