It was the most heartbreaking moment when an elderly couple from Berkshire, battling COVID-19, bid their final goodbyes.
79-year-old Gerry Jarrett and his 76-year-old wife Barbara both contracted the deadly virus and had to be hospitalized. Since their condition worsened, it seemed like the end was very near. And on that note, the Berkshire hospital staff thought it would be a good idea to allow the husband and wife to see each other, for the last time.
Moreover, they felt that this is the least they could do for them, as they wouldn’t get another golden opportunity to spend precious time together again. Now, the daughter is praising the hospital’s staff for their kind gesture, and allowing her dear father to see his wife, for what is probably the last time ever.
Holding hands in a giant hospital bed that was littered with tubes, it was a heartwrenching moment for many to see.
This is where the couple was receiving their treatment for coronavirus.While the couple was located in separate wards, at Frimley Park’s hospital in Surrey, the staff made sure they would spend their last moment together.
Meanwhile, the daughter confirmed how the decision for the union came forward as Mrs. Jarrett’s condition began deteriorating quickly on Tuesday. Therefore, since she looked ‘to be at her end,’ the hospital thought of the beautiful idea.
Daughter Chloe described it as the most incredible union, bringing tears to so many people’s eyes.
‘Dad was wheeled in, he was crying, and then he touched mom’s hand.” At that point in time, Chloe’s mom’s eyes flung open. She woke up, nice and bright, and could talk too. It was so emotional yet touching too.
Chloe was all praise for the staff, thanking them for their care, and strive to help ensure her parents received the best treatment ever. And while it was for a precious hour or two, she will always cherish it for the rest of her life.
