COVID-19 ICU patient leaves heartwarming message for staff who treated him

 

Doctors and nurses working in the ICU unit at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, were touched by a profound message left by a COVID-19 patient who they had been treating for 10 days.

The touching messaged, written on the patient’s window, thanked the doctors and nurses for their care in his recovery. Dr. Eduardo Mireles, Director of Cleveland Clinic's Medical ICU, told ABC News, “This gesture from the patient touched our hearts and was another reminder of why we do what we do."

Here’s the uplifting message:

"This window has been the most impactful window in my life. On days when I watched you work hard to keep me and others alive, unable to thank you for the time that you poured into me — and although I will probably never get the chance to pour that same love and support into you, I want you to know that I think you all are rockstars. I watched some of you have good nights and some bad nights but what was consistent every night was that you care for people. Today I leave this ICU a changed person, hopefully for the better, not only because of your medical healing and God’s direction and guidance, but with the fact of knowing that there are such wonderful people dedicated to the care and concern of others. God bless each of you.”
