Yvonne Kinsella has Covid-19 and is in hospital. She is a mother of two and a grandmother of two from Dublin, she has a compromised immune system and asthma.
On Monday evening Yvonne recorded this message for Claire Byrne Live.
"I got here the other night and thought, 'God, am I going to come back out?'"
"I asked my husband to find a will that we had in a drawer and I signed it. I just hated it and I told him to mind the kids. I didn’t think I would walk back out, I thought my heart was going to give, up the pain was unbearable,"
"All I can do is hope that I turn a corner in a week or so and I will be okay again." she said
"Every time a doctor comes in you hope they’re not coming in to tell you bad news. When they told us the other night we were all positive it was heartbreaking, grown men and women were crying."
"The staff are unbelievable, they have to go home to their own families but they’re still in looking after you they are unbelievable.
"I’m just hoping now that I will turn a corner and I will get out and see my kids and my grandkids again,"
"I’d say to people, don’t be fools. I don’t know how I got it, don’t risk your life, don’t risk your family’s life, you never know when it is going to change"
