    Miraculously

    "Three days ago, Linda choked on a fishbone and she nearly had to be hospitalized. But miraculously, she took it out by herself in the end."

    Does this sentence have a natural conversational tone?

    Thank you so much

    It's OK. The only thing I don't understand is when she took the fishbone out. When was "in the end"? After the paramedics decided she didn't need to be hospitalised? Two days after she nearly choked?

    I think I would use something like "Miraculously, she was able to remove the fishbone herself before any permanent damage was done".
