D’Andra Simmons Says She’s ‘Thankful’ And ‘Grateful’ To Be Alive After COVID-19 Hospitalization; Says “My Illness Forced Me To Slow Down And Re-Evaluate My Priorities And To Understand The Importance Of Self-Care”

D’Andra Simmons is sharing a health update after she was released from the hospital over the COVID-19 diagnosis.

Ahead of the season five premiere of The Real Housewives of Dallas, Simmons shared with her followers that she is "thankful" and "grateful" to be alive via Instagram.

Simmons began her post by sharing a quote from Oprah Winfrey. “ “Where there is no struggle, there is no strength” - @oprah”

“🙏🖤🌟 As it was for many others, for me 2020 was a year filled with losses, disappointments, and defeat. From the passing of my sweet Gypsy and Dixie girls to being hospitalized with COVID-19, this year has truly tested my strength to embrace the positive in life. My illness forced me to slow down and re-evaluate my priorities and to understand the importance of self-care. It has given me such appreciation to be alive and thankful for everything I have, and for everyone who cares for me...and for those who took the time to reach out when I was in my darkest hour.” 

She continued, “I am grateful to be here! Welcome 2021! I have so much more to do! God isn’t finished with me yet! I’m so excited to reconnect with my family, friends, and fans as we all get to watch SEASON 5 of The Real Housewives of Dallas together! Let’s all let go of any negativity we might be holding in our hearts and enjoy what the New Year will bring us! We made it through 2020, so let’s do this!” 

She added, “I hope everyone gets a chance to unwind and grab your favorite drink to watch the season premiere of #RHOD at 9/8c on @bravotv with me! P.S. I’ll be LIVE tweeting my thoughts tonight so please join me on @dandrasimmons for some fun! XO 😍 #RHOD #BravoTV #Texas #Dallas #HappyNewYear #Grateful #PositiveVibes.”

Last week, it was reported that Simmons was being treated at a coronavirus ward in a Texas hospital after her oxygen levels were found to be "borderline."

Simmons' rep, Kelly Brady told PEOPLE at that time. “Her oxygen levels were borderline and she will start remdesivir. At this time we ask you to respect her and her family’s privacy and to send your prayers for a speedy recovery.”

Days later, D’Andra confirmed via Instagram that she was discharged from the hospital.
