shortness of breath

‘Sweetheart, you’re going to get through this.’ The smiling eyes behind your goggles and N-95 masks will stay with me forever.’: Woman pens love letter to nurses who helped her battle COVID-19

“She was the ICU nurse who got stuck with the COVID-19 patient. I don’t know how many hours I spent staring at my oxygen on the monitor, willing it to rise. All I wanted was one breath. Still, she showed up, with grace and humor. I will never forget that sacrifice.”

‘He wasn’t going to make it. The nurse placed her hand over my back. I shrieked. She knew what I knew.’: Woman surprised with pregnancy after husband’s death

“On our wedding day, by the end of the night, he was drained. The morning after, he slept in late because he was so exhausted. The night we celebrated his life, I took a pregnancy test.

‘She looked like Cinderella, but lives like Sleeping Beauty. We feel guilty for fussing at her, but we had no clue.’: 16-year-old sleeps ‘more than 20 hours a day’ in comas due to severe epilepsy

“People have said she is ‘too pretty’ to be as sick as she is. They simply don’t believe us. This has even happened with doctors because she is dressed nicely and, if she’s well enough for me to prop her up, then I’ll put her makeup on. Her brain misfires more than 80% of her life. She’s been hospitalized hundreds of times, has stopped breathing, her heart has stopped and she’s had to be resuscitated.”
