SAN ANTONIO – Carlos Muniz contracted COVID-19 earlier this year and says he still finds day-to-day task difficult months after his hospitalization.
“My body aches every day,” Muniz said. “You know, it’s hard for me to wake up in the morning. My hands and my feet sometimes have really bad pain.”
Muniz was supposed to get married in July, instead, he ended up in the hospital with the virus. However, when he thought he would not be able to marry the love of his life, Methodist Hospital made it possible with a reception and all.
Muniz was released from the hospital in September. He said he did physical therapy for about four weeks.
“They came and they helped me with exercises and getting me out of the wheelchair,” Muniz said. “I have therapy, so that’s helping with some of the trauma and the PTSD now.”
Muniz said this experience taught to appreciate life and the people and things in it.
“The little things don’t bother me as much. You know, it’s like hey I’m alive. I’m good. I’m here. I’m with my wife and all my kids,” Muniz said.
