A WIFE is ready to welcome her husband home after his amazing fight for life against coronavirus.
Sue Martin, 49, was initially told by doctors that diabetic Mal, 58, had “zero chance of survival”.
She told BBC Radio 4’s Today show in April how she went to hospital with her children Hana, 16, and William, 13, to say their final goodbyes.
Sue explained: “Covered from head to toe in PPE we said our goodbyes to him.
“We’d been told he would likely die the following day.
“When the dreaded call from the consultant came the next day, he told us there had been a tiny improvement which meant a drug supporting Mal’s blood pressure could be reduced; not enough to raise too much hope but a glimmer nonetheless.
“For the next few weeks it was touch and go.
Medics worked at simply keeping Mal alive, giving his body a chance of fighting the virus.”
But recruitment firm boss Mal — who fell ill in mid-March and spent 61 days on a ventilator — recovered.
Yesterday civil servant Sue said she had been told he would be able to return to their Cardiff home this week.
She added: “His recovery is miraculous.”
