It's me again!

In addition to the "Grey's" episode, Sarah also spoke at an event last year to help raise the profile of the disease, which can lead to life-threatening ailments like heart disease if not treated properly. "It was obviously the hardest thing that I've gone through ... and before I spoke at a fundraiser in November, I had never met anyone who had been through (Kawasaki disease) in the year and a half since we had," she revealed.

The fragment put in bold type is of interest to me.

To my way of thinking, the part in bold could be interpreted as follows:

I had never met anyone who had (managed) to pull through (Kawasaki disease) during the year and a half from the moment we developed (the disease). (to be precise, it should be "Charlie had or Charlie developed the disease).

or

I had never met anyone who had (managed) to recover from (Kawasaki disease) during the year and a half from the moment we developed (the disease). (to be precise, it should be "Charlie had or Charlie developed the disease).



What do you think.

Thank you.

I had never met anyone who had suffered from and survived Kawasaki's disease in the year and a half since we had suffered from and survived Kawasaki's Disease.

We suffered from it a year and a half ago. Between then and now, we've met no-one who has had it too.
