Robin Cox

As a full-time early Head Start teacher, Robin Cox loves working with children. A mother of four, Robin lives with her husband and enjoys baking and photography. She is going to school in pursuit of a bachelor’s in psychology and made the Dean’s List in December.

Robin was living a full life when she was diagnosed with COVID-19. The virus took a serious toll on her. As the days went by, her condition didn’t improve. She admitted to a local hospital in Borger, Texas, for COVID-19, pneumonia, and respiratory failure. Unfortunately, Robin continued to deteriorate and developed sepsis.

For specialized care, Robin transferred to Vibra Hospital of Amarillo, a long-term acute care hospital. Once medically stable, she admitted to Vibra’s ICU for continued care, including ventilator management and weaning.

Robin credits her faith in God and prayers for keeping her going and aiding in her recovery. She is also grateful for her physicians who she notes have been very informative in communicating with her and keeping her family updated. “They have all been amazing,” she said. “Everyone has gone above and beyond caring for me.” Robin also shared that her case manager, Tiffany, has done a wonderful job.

The next step for Robin is an inpatient stay at Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital of Amarillo. She hopes that with extensive therapy, she can return home to her life and her family.
