Is Kate Garraway Husband Still In The Hospital?
The Mirror reports that Kate has revealed a setback in Derek’s progress and that he has been staying at the hospital. She said: “Derek is back in hospital after developing sepsis that again threatened his life and we are again fighting to get him home.”
Of being a carer, she wrote for The Sun: “We all clapped for carers with vigour during the pandemic because they were saving lives right before our very eyes, but the trouble is, when the direct fear of life-or-death passes, this celebration gets quickly forgotten, but the caring goes on. It’s not sexy or the stuff of movies, like pulling someone from a burning building or giving mouth to mouth, but it’s no less vital to life.”
The host also revealed that she has been “frustrated, emotional, and depressed” while caring for Derek, but she “wants him to survive.” In her ITV documentary ‘Finding Derek,’ she recently shared an intimate look into her life and marriage, revealing how much her family’s life had changed in the last two years.
