A black American woman from Michigan has lost her husband of 35 years and her son to Coronavirus within three days.
Sandy Brown of Grand Blanc said she’s suffering from ‘indescribable grief ‘ after losing her husband, Freddie Lee Brown Jr. and son Freddie Lee Brown III within a short period of time.
“There’s not even a word created to describe my pain. It’s unimaginable,” she said.
According to Detriot News, Sandy’s husband fell sick in March, coming down with chills and muscle aches.
The 59-year-old who had a kidney transplant began having trouble breathing and was admitted to Ascension Genesys Hospital, the outlet reported.
He later tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on a ventilator. Few days later, Sandy received a call that his lung collapsed and to rush to the hospital, where she learned that doctors were unable to save him, according to the report.
When Nurses told her not to go into his hospital room, she insisted, putting on protective gear to say goodbye to her husband, the newspaper reported.
“I’m going in that room,” she reportedly told them. “I don’t care what I have to do. I’ll sign whatever I need to sign.”
The next day, her 20-year-old son, Freddie III, who had asthma became sick with a fever and a cough. Sandy took him to the same hospital, where his health improved before he began struggling to breathe, the outlet reported.
Three days after her husband’s death, the heartbroken woman received the same call from the hospital asking her to quickly rush down to the hospital, where she was later informed 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.”
