Selena Gomez‘s mother is speaking out more about her near-fatal health battle this year, as well as the treatment she received at a hospital.
Interview with People, published Wednesday, Dec. 22, Mandy Teefey, 45, said her double pneumonia, which she first wrote about in November, had been “exacerbated” when she caught COVID-19.
“I got pneumonia in February in New York, and I guess the doctor didn’t really clear it up as much as it needed to be,” she said, adding that she received IV vitamin therapy, which she thinks helped.
“Then, one week before I was to get my first shot at COVID, I had COVID,” she stated. I was home all the time. My fever went away, and my oxygen level rose to 69. I was then rushed to hospital. It was quite a stern hospital. They asked me, “Why haven’t you had your shot?” The first hospital was very insistent. We can talk about it later. Let me tell you.
