Illinois Couple Celebrates 63rd Anniversary While in Hospital With Covid


This is so sweet...an Illinois couple who is in the hospital with Covid-19, but in separate areas, were able to spend their 63rd anniversary together:

Nurses at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Illinois put together an extra special treat this week for married couple Frank and Masako "Terry" Martinez.

Although the couple, who have been married for 63 years, are patients in the same hospital, they are being treated in "separate areas," the hospital shared on Facebook over the weekend. 

Frank, 93, and Terry, 86, have both been hospitalized with COVID-19, according to KMOV. A spokesperson for St. Elizabeth's Hospital confirmed to PEOPLE that both Frank and Terry are "COVID-19 positive patients," adding, "Their niece Eddye told us she can't remember a time when they even spent a night apart."

"When a family member mentioned that they are always inseparable and very dependent on each other, their nurses, Kim and Hannah, made a plan," the hospital shared.

"The couple were treated to a special 'Dinner Date' night where they were able to see each other, hold hands and eat together for the evening. Just as they have done for so many years," the hospital added alongside a heartwarming photo of Frank and Terry.
