A Wexford woman has recovered from the coronavirus and is returning home…
Suzanne D’arcy Gaughan, living in Gorey, has been discharged from hospital.
She was brought to Wexford Hospital via ambulance on April 8th and yesterday, April 15th, she was given the all clear to return home.
“I just wanted to say thank you all for all the prayers and well wishes. I’m home thank god, I’m one of the lucky ones,” Suzanne said.
Suzanne is the wife of Dominick, a firefighter, who also contracted the virus.
Dominick echoed Suzanne’s thanks in a post issued to Twitter:
“Just wanted to say a big thanks to everybody for all the prayers and good wishes, after seven days in hospital, Suzanne is home, thank God. We still must continue to stay in self isolation from each other.”
“Big thanks to our neighbors, family, friends, teachers from Coláiste Bhríde Carnew, Candy’s/Costcutters of Carnew, Centra Carnew, the wonderful staff of Wexford Hospital in the Covid 19 treatment unit, my work colleagues and all the wonderful people of this world who offered help. I was never so emotional with all your messages and offers of support. Hope everybody stays safe and stays home. Thank you,” Dominick said.
Both still have to self-isolate from each other for the time being, but this is another positive story that highlights that this virus can – and will – be defeated. In times like this, we must remember the positives too.
The pair are continuing their pleas, urging the public to stay at home and to social distance helping the global effort to contain the virus.
