How is Kate Garraway's husband doing?
In an upcoming episode of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, Kate Garraway sadly says her husband Derek Draper is in a “terrible state”.
The former Labour party guru has returned home after spending over 13 months in hospital with long Covid.
Good Morning Britain’s host reveals the extent of her husband’s illness and she says he is still unable to communicate after Covid-19 caused brain inflammation.
Garraway says the “inflammation passed through” his brain making him one of the worst affected living Covid patients in the UK – The Mirror reported.
In the interview, which airs on Sunday at 8pm on ITV, she says: “It’s devastated him.
“From the top of his head to the tip of his toe. His digestive system, his liver, his kidneys, his heart, his nervous system. We’re pretty sure that the inflammation did pass through the brain.
“He still can’t communicate, he still has issues with mobility. Fundamentally, he’s in a terrible state. Look, he’s alive, Piers.”
Derek, a psychologist and psychotherapist, no longer has the virus.
But countless infections have left him with holes in his lungs and he has lost eight stone.
Derek has been left with kidney failure, damage to his liver and pancreas and heart failure.
Derek was reduced to tears as he woke from his medically-induced coma.
