Without access to food, Gibson drank bath water to stay alive, WJRT reported.
"I basically just sat there," she said. "When I got cold, I ran the hot water. When I get thirsty, I took a drink out of the cold water. That's about it, try to find a way to get out."
At 11 a.m. on Oct. 19, a postal worker told Gibson's neighbors that he was becoming concerned because her mail was piling up. Neighbors went to a window and called for her, WJRT reported.
"Someone was outside my window, yelling, so I yelled back," Gibson said.
Neighbors called police. Chesaning police Chief Stacey Wilburn and another officer climbed through a window to get into the house.
"(It was) scary, because, I mean, we turned the light on, which means her light was off at night," Wilburn told WJRT.
Gibson spent four days in a local hospital, but she was released after doctors found no major health issues, the television station reported. She said she was going to have a walk-in tub installed very soon.
"I don't want to do it again, that's for sure," Gibson told WJRT.
