Husband Holds Sign Outside For Wife Who Has To Go To Chemotherapy Alone
Love can be tough, especially during the time of this pandemic. Many people cannot see or meet their loved ones because of the many restrictions cities are under due to the pandemic. But love always finds a way. Amidst all the chaos, a sweet tale of love comes to us from Texas as a husband supports his wife, who has been diagnosed with cancer while maintaining social distancing.
Last January, as the world was just coming to terms with COVID-19, the Conner family were shocked to find out that Kelly Conner had tested positive for breast cancer.
Ever since then, there have been multiple chemotherapy sessions and doctor’s appointments that Kelly had to attend. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus restrictions, Albert Conner, Kelly’s husband, was not allowed to accompany her inside the hospital. The solution? He decided to station himself outside the hospital window with signs.
Love Overcomes Pandemic Restrictions
44 years old Albert Conner held different signs every visit. One sign has I love you written on it. Another conveyed that he could not be physically near, but he was always there for her. And yet another card thanked the medical staff for working during this time.
In an interview with Good Morning America, Albert said that he had to be there every single time because he had made a promise saying that he will always be there to support her. He also mentioned that his kids helped him design and color the posters.
Kelly reported that she was surprised to see Albert outside her hospital window as she had just left the house alone. She said that after she reached the hospital, the medical procedure began, and then her phone dinged. It was Albert, and he asked her to look down at the parking lot.
Grateful Medical Staffers Thank Albert Conner
Kelly Conner further revealed that she geared up as soon as her eyes fell on him. She also said that the nurse tested up too.
Several medical staffers, too, went out of their way to thank Albert.
The reason why he chose to write on big poster boards is that he wanted Kelly to be able to see his message no matter which room she was assigned. Kelly’s first batch of chemotherapy sessions ended by May. The second batch involves a long and aggressive drug. And of course, Albert will be there for these too.
Albert said that they were a little upset initially after finding out about the medical facility’s rules. But, at the end of the day, it all made perfect sense. Since Kelly’s immunity is compromised, her husband has closed his locksmith shop to avoid any risk.
Love has the power to overcome anything, even the pandemic.
