Husband touched the Internet with a letter to the doctors who treated his deceased wife

Laura Lewis, 34, who worked as an editor at Harvard Magazine and the Harvard Gazette, died last month from a severe asthma attack. Her husband, Peter DeMarco, stayed with her for the last 7 days of her life at the Massachusetts hospital.
He still remembers the names of all the doctors, nurses, social workers and even cleaners who helped take care of his wife and their family during the last two years of her illness.

“Each of you treated Laura with such professionalism, kindness and dignity while she was unconscious,” Peter wrote in an open letter published in the New York Times.

"When it was necessary to give injections, you apologized that it would hurt a little and it didn’t matter whether she could hear you or not."

The man writes that the staff always explained the procedures to him and answered all the questions. They even allowed Laura's father, who is also a doctor, to participate in the treatment.

“And the way you treated me,” continues DeMarco. “Where would I find the strength to survive that week if not for you?”

Peter thanked the doctors that they were constantly interested in his condition, offered food,change of clothes, allowed to take a shower in the hospital.

“How many times have you hugged me and comforted me when I was just broken. You asked about what Laura was, found time to look at her photo or read what I wrote about her ... ".

The staff even allowed Peter to bring Laura’s beloved cat to the hospital so that she could say goodbye to her before she died. In addition, the man was able to organize a holiday with 50 guests - relatives and relatives of his wife.

But most of all, Peter is grateful for the last hours next to his wife.He wanted to be alone with her and asked the staff to move his chair as close as possible to her bed. But instead, the nurses moved Laura, so Peter could lie with her.

“I asked that no one bother us for one hour. She was so beautiful, I told her that, touching her hair and face. Lowering my nightie a little bit, I kissed her breast, and then laid my head on her and listened to her breathing and heartbeat. This was our last tender moment as husband and wife, and then I fell asleep. ”

Peter says it was the best gift that could have been in that situation.
