With their lives hanging in the balance, nurses at an English hospital had a proposition for COVID-19 patients Elizabeth Kerr and fiancé Simon O'Brien: did they want to get married in the ward while they still had the chance?
literally within a day won't from Uber Kite. Then he wasn't coping. And then on the Saturday we had, we called an ambulance. We both went in the same ambulance. They couldn't wait for another one to compete the other next day. John Rhodes. Okay, way Deteriorated pixels. I end up intensive care unit 2.5 hours. Wow. This is so Uh huh. The re spiritualists came to see me on the other ward on Told me that Simon was going to intensive care. They couldn't delay it way. Talk to them about that. We're getting married way. Then there was sort of strangers. Well, do you want to get married in the hospital? This might be you. Any Charles? Yeah. And, um those are words I never ever want to hear, but yeah, we've got a wedding story that can Trump must be mhm. I've seen seeing Lizzy on our morning review on, but she mentioned to me that they would do to get married in the June. Andi I suggested to her then Would should be, you know, would she consider getting married within hospital? Even though it was an ideal on e think initially took her by surprise because it's not something they had spoken about in hospital. So she had a chapter. Simon. I had a chat, Simon, just to reassure him on that it was all okay. And then it took us four hours Thio from that moment up until they got married, it is seen incredibly challenging on Dino. You know, there have certainly been moments where you questions, you know, Do we stay within nursing? Is this the correct thing to Dio? But then you experience something like the wedding. Anything? Absolutely. If there is anything we can dio, even if it's not necessary deemed as a nursing task, If it's something on a very human and holistic level that we can deliver to the patients, then you know it gives you faces or carry on it. It just keeps you going a little bit longer.
