- Thanks to everyone who’s said such kind things after I talked about Susan’s COVID experience tonight. Prayers are very welcome. If there’s one other thing we could ask, it’s to please find new ways to show support for health workers where you live. And slow the spread. Please.
- I had trip planned from LA to NY to see my family for Thanksgiving but ur testimonial had such impact & resonance that I immediately canceled said trip. Hard decision but necessary. Thank you for sharing your story with us. Hopefully it saved some lives. Perhaps even my own.
“My relationship with Susan is the only thing, at the end of the day, that I would kill or die for without hesitation,” Maddow said. “And Susan has been sick with COVID for the past two weeks. At one point, we really thought there was a possibility that that would kill her, and that’s why I’ve been out. ”
Maddow said she kept testing negative while in isolation.
“[Susan] has not only been positive during this time, she has become increasingly ill as I have tried to care for her while still being physically away from her,” Maddow said. And the bottom line is that she will be fine. She is recovering. She is still sick, but she will be fine, and we are no longer scared like we were. But it really didn’t seem like everything was going well from the beginning. ”
