Sylvia Sanchez and her husband Arturo Atayde are brimming with joy after they successfully recovered from the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
On Instagram yesterday, May 3, the actress shared a series of photos from their “reunion” with their children after being in isolation for one month and nine days.
“Praise and thank you GOD. 🙏❤️🙏 After 1 month and 9 days, we can now hug, kiss, play, and eat together with our kids,” Sylvia wrote.
“Tandang tanda ko ‘yung pakiramdam ko na hindi namin pwedeng malapitan, mayakap, o mahalikan ang mga anak namin. Ang lungkot! Napakalungkot,” she recalled.
“Bilang isang ina, araw araw dinudurog puso ko kapag naiisip ko na posible naming mahawa mga anak namin. Yan ang pinaka kinakatakutan ko habang nakikipaglaban kaming mag-asawa sa COVID. ‘Yan ang pinagdarasal ko araw araw sa hospital bed ko na sana 'wag mangyari,” she added.
Sylvia then expressed gratitude to everyone who prayed for their fast recovery, as well as to the health workers who are sacrificing their lives on the frontlines of the COVID-19 battle.
“Thank you to all the frontliners that took care of us and to those who continue to fight for everyone. It was not an easy fight but we won because of your unending prayers and love. And with the Grace and Love of GOD,” she said.
“Today I am grateful to GOD that He heard and answered our prayers. My husband and I are now okay and reunited with our children. Finally, nayakap na namin mga anak namin kaninang lunch. Yahoooo! Ang sarap sarap ng pakiramdam! Ang saya, saya!“
“Ngayon, haharapin namin ang buhay ulit nang magkakasama. At patuloy kong pinagdarasal na matapos na ang virus na ito. In JESUS name,” she continued.
Sylvia and Arturo contracted the virus in March.
