Kate Garraway has shared a heartbreaking health update about her husband Derek Draper as she vows to never stop caring for him.Former political lobbyist Derek, 55, has become one of the worst living cases of Covid-19 after contracting the virus in March 2020 and was hospitalised for 13 months as a result.
Derek has faced a series of health battles as he recovers from the virus that ravaged his body. He contracted sepsis last year leaving him "minutes from death".In a new interview, Kate revealed that Derek has no physical mobility and needs to be held upright by two people five times a day in order to bear any weight.
The Good Morning Britain presenter, 56, said that Derek has developed a "weird choking" condition that has left doctors scratching their heads.Speaking to the Sunday Times, she explained: "It happened again just last weekend.
For absolutely no reason he just went blue."Fortunately, two carers were on hand to get Derek breathing again as Kate and her son watched in horror.
