Garraway revealed an emotional discovery she made while packing a hospital bag for her husband Derek. He has been in a coma for ten weeks in the intensive care unit after contracting the coronavirus. The GMB star revealed some emotional news in a new interview with the Sun.
After being asked to pack a bag of familiar items for Derek, including shampoo and body wash he likes and knows, she pulled out a small suitcase that she had last used for a work trip. When she opened the bag, she found something incredibly romantic...
Kate Garraway: "there was a card he'd written for me"
"I opened it up and there was a card he'd written for me, which I'd read at the time. It says how much he loves me, how proud of me he is, and that he was feeling so good about us. It was just so romantic and it feels so odd reading it now he's in this state," she revealed.
Kate continued, "You know that feeling, when you're driving along and someone pulls out in front of you and your heart lurches, so you drive really cautiously for the next five minutes and then calm down? Well, it's like you’re constantly in that heart lurch stage, without the calming down bit. It's the same for Derek's poor parents and sisters too. They're in Chorley and want to be here but can't be."
Garraway has been incredibly strong throughout her husband's battle with COVID-19. She is very good at giving her fans weekly updates on Derek's state. She also bravely returned to Good Morning Britain on Friday to update the viewers on her husband's health. She explained that he is now coronavirus free, however the illness had been so hard on his body, impacting his heart and kidneys.
We are wishing the best for Kate, her children and her husband during this difficult time.
