A sweet wife whose husband is in the ICU battling the coronavirus prays for him every day outside the hospital window.
Michelle Gutierrez from Tomball, Texas revealed to FOX 26 of her vow to be by her husband’s side every day. Even when that meant she had to stay outside his hospital room because she wasn’t allowed to go near him.
She told FOX 26, “First thing I do at 7 p.m., I send him a text to let him know that I kept my promise that I’m going to be here praying for him.”
A Wife Keeping A Promise
Apparently, Michelle made a promise to her husband David whose battling the coronavirus. She vowed to keep coming every day and pray for him. So for the last two weeks, she kept her promise. While listening to worship songs, she stood outside her husband’s hospital window and prayed for him every day.
The faithful wife also shared how it’s been tough for her and the whole family.
“Not being able to be by his side, letting him know hey honey I’m right here supporting you. And I know even though he is in a coma I think that if I was there he can still hear me,” she said.
COVID-19 And Severe Symptoms
The husband, David, was tested positive for COVID-19 a few weeks ago. He had no pre-existing or underlying conditions. But the virus’ symptoms hit him so severely that doctors decided to admit him in the ICU at Saint Luke’s in The Woodlands, TX. Doctors said it was the “best thing they could do to save David’s life.”
Although it’s been tough for Michelle, she finds hope in God. She hopes too that one day her husband will finally see her text messages to him from the last couple of weeks.
Moreover, she hopes as well that others who are in the same situation as hers would find inspiration in her story.
“Don’t lose hope. Don’t lose hope and don’t lose faith,” she said.
Michelle and David will celebrate a decade of their marriage this September. Let’s pray for David’s healing and total recovery from COVID-19 so the couple would blissfully celebrate together. God is good.
