In his post, Sam said, “I have the angels with me to help heal my girl. She appears along with all your amazing love and prayers, so very slowly to be at least a little brighter in her.

In a post, Sam said, “No real change in Linda today, I’m afraid. She’s been the same since last night.
“Still on oxygen and still on an IV, very bad. She eats and drinks regularly. Only needs her oxygen levels to take care of herself before the next big push can take place.
“She is far from good and far from the forest. Send your thoughts, your love, your prayers and your positivity to her. She now needs all the help she can get.
“She’s fighting and she’s winning. Thanks for all your great and friendly messages. So much love. Sam. ‘

Hospitalized: After Sam revealed she “ turned a corner ” with the virus on Monday night, Linda took to Twitter to thank the NHS and her followers
“I have a feeling it takes me there. It is a cruel, despicable, brutal, brutal, dark disease. It was like three hands. One that strangles you. One that pushes your face down like it does. The other rips your heart out of your chest and it just doesn’t stop … for days’.
“You are totally helpless and in her grip. It doesn’t look like the flu at all, ”he continued before pleading with those who didn’t follow government rules to stop going out.
“Please stop going out. If you pass this on, it will simply take longer for us to return to normal. Please stay safe people. Two weeks away from anyone outside your family, this should disappear. It’s that simple. Please stay indoors. ‘

The day before Sam confirmed that he had tested positive for COVID-19, he told his Facebook followers that he had no idea where the couple contracted the virus.
‘Good. It is official. I am positive for CoronaVirus. I don’t know if I’m happy or upset. Probably a little bit of both. I hope it’s a one-time thing, because I don’t want this anymore, ‘wrote the former actor.
He added that Linda had not yet received her results, but was “sure” that she had the virus.
“I don’t know Linda’s result yet, but regardless of the test, I’m sure she has it. We have been told that many of the tests performed are negative because the testing process is so sensitive. They tell me that in many cases, tests are false negatives. Kinda and I both had schoolbook symptoms. God knows where we got it. But we did it.
“Cruel”: It’s a cruel, despicable, brutal, brutal, dark illness, “Linda’s husband wrote of the illness that left them both hospitalized
The NHS staff were incredible. The work and care they give to the frontline with so few resources is amazing. They are not afraid. The gratitude I owe them for making my girl feel normal again will be due for the rest of my life. ‘
Please take care of yourself. Insulation is now the only way. This must be stopped and only we can do it. Take care of yourself. Stay safe. Xxx ‘
