Shortly after his post, Fred suffered setbacks. His wife, LeeAnn Jemmott shared a grim diagnosis from doctors who didn’t give Fred much chance of survival, “It was just like — he’s gone and he’s gonna die, that’s it. I don’t even know how I felt, I just felt like I was going to die.”
Jemmott says she remains optimistic that her husband will make a full recovery, “Now, instead of the ventilator supporting him 100%, it’s supporting him 70%.”
