I’m asking everyone to please, please, please follow the Safe At Home orders. It has been said that Wisconsin hasn’t reached its peak yet. And my hope is that no one else will go through what my family has in the last two weeks.
 
Lawrence's illness hit him fast and hard. What we thought was a simple cold turned out to be very serious. Riding in the car, with Langston taking him to the hospital, Lawrence knew he was sick also. He kept asking me “Lynn what's wrong with me?...” All I could say was “I don't know, I don't know we’re going to get you help, don't worry.”
 
No one really likes hospitals, and I know Lawrence did not. When the doctors and nurses in the ER rushed me out of the room, I knew something was seriously wrong. At that point, he could no longer breathe on his own, so he was placed on a ventilator and heavily sedated.
 
I SALUTE the healthcare professionals who took care of my husband through this ordeal. They kept me informed with day and nightly updates, and when Lawrence health started fading fast, they called me and asked what I would like to say to my husband. After I told them, the nurses held his hand, and repeated everything. At times, I'm not sure if they understood me or not between the words and tears. But just from their reactions I know that they felt my pain. It was hard for me, not being able to be at his bedside and hold my own husband's hand.
 
So please take it from someone who experienced the worst of it. Stay safe and FOLLOW THE SAFE AT HOME ORDERS. We can do it in Milwaukee County. We will get through this with God's help and by being attentive to ourselves. Do it for those you Love.
Thank you.
