A beautiful fairy tale with a happy ending happened to this splendid family of four from Essex, England. The father of the family, Omar Taylor, was hospitalized because of the Coronavirus and for 8 weeks he was attached to a ventilator to help him breathe. Between life and death, Omar miraculously managed to heal in time to celebrate his son Harrison's second birthday. A beautiful story of a cure that has gone around the world.

During the very difficult hospital stay, Omar could no longer breathe independently, had lost the gift of speech and could no longer move his right arm; in addition, health workers had gradually prepared his wife Kaitlyn for the worst. But then, the miracle happened: Omar started to improve, breathe again on his own, and to walk slowly. A physical recovery that no Colchester Hospital doctor expected ...

 When the time came for Omar to leave the hospital, all the doctors and nurses who had cared for him applauded him, while the family composed of his wife, 4-year-old daughter Vivienne and little Harrison of almost 2 welcomed him with open arms. Just in time to celebrate the younger child's second birthday.

Omar, regional director for the Care UK healthcare company, is currently undergoing speech therapy and can only pronounce two or three words at a time. His right arm is still paralyzed, but doctors hope he can recover 90% by the end of 2020. Kaitlyn said: "It was so difficult, particularly with two young children. Harrison, who is two years old next week , did not understand and was afraid of his father for the first two hours after his return. "

"But Vivienne, our four-year-old daughter, is a daddy's girl and hasn't left his side since he came back. She's helping him in the bathroom and shower and is so happy that he's at home. In total, Omar he was gone for eight weeks. It's not that long for an adult, but for children it seemed like it was forever. They didn't think he would ever come back [...] This was everyone's worst nightmare. But the support that we received was overwhelming. "

Many wishes for a complete recovery, Omar!
