Sandy Brown of Grand Blanc, Michigan, is grieving the loss of her husband and son. Both men lost their lives to Coronavirus.
“There’s not even a word created to describe my pain. It’s unimaginable,” she said.
According to the NY Post, her husband, Freddie Lee Brown Jr., 59, fell sick in the middle of March. After testing positive for coronavirus, he was placed on a ventilator, which required him to be placed in a medically induced coma. Days later, his lung collapsed, and doctors were unable to save him.
As a wife, Sandy was adamant about saying goodbye to the love of her life.
“I’m going in that room,” she reportedly told nurses. “I don’t care what I have to do. I’ll sign whatever I need to sign.”
Despite nurses urges, Sandy entered her husband’s room in protective gear to say her goodbyes.
The next day, her only child, Freddie Lee Brown III, who had asthma, fell sick with a fever and a cough. Sandy rushed him to the same hospital his father was at.
Although his health did improve at first, three days later, Sandy received a phone call, “asking her how quickly she could get there. She learned that her son had also succumbed to the virus.”
In three days, I lost my husband and son to an ugly plague,” Sandy told the newspaper. “I watched my son go from completely well and whole and happy to being gone in three days.”
