Man Recovering from Coronavirus Marries Fiancée from Hospital Bed: 'COVID-19 Can't Stop Love' (people.com)
A man who contracted COVID-19 the same week he was set to be married refused to let the virus get in his way of tying the knot with his soulmate.
Carlos Muniz was fighting for his life in the ICU and receiving ECMO treatment at San Antonio’s Methodist Hospital, but still managed to marry his fiancée, Grace, from his hospital bed on Tuesday, according to ABC affiliate KSAT.
With their immediate family by their side — an exception that the hospital made for the couple — Carlos, 41, and Grace became husband and wife as Methodist staffers watched on, inspired by their love story amid a difficult time.
"This wedding is really important for us as the care team of this patient," Carlos' nurse told the outlet. "We’ve seen some victories, but we’ve had our losses. It was very special for us to be a part of and has been a big motivator for this team."
