Kate Garraway Posts Update On Husband's Fight With COVID-19
Kate posted a tribute to all the NHS workers and carers and how strong they are for fighting this battle with all those who are sick. After they read out the caption of her post on Good Morning Britain, Kate's close friend and co-presenter Ben, had a few other words that Kate wanted him to share.
Ben Shephard: "She's been able to speak to Derek in the evenings in a coma"
"She also wanted to share the fact that she's been able to speak to Derek in the evenings in a coma. A lot of hospitals are doing this, offering the families a chance to speak to their loved ones," Ben shared.
"He can't respond but she's been able to share music with him, talk to him, just to support him. She's been able to pass on those messages that you've passed on to her to Derek as well, so he is getting a sense of all the support and positivity that's coming from you," he continued.
"As Kate said last week, she can't respond to everybody, as much as she wishes she could, but in quieter moments, when she does get ten minutes, she scrolls through them and the emotions and support she is getting from everybody has been really helping. It's really tough, really, really tough, he is still very, very critically ill," Shephard concluded.
We are wishing Kate all the best during this incredibly tough time and our thoughts are with her husband Derek as he continues his battle with COVID-19.
