Alexis Morley rushes to her boyfriend’s side
On learning that Adam Schlesinger is hospitalized due to coronavirus, his girlfriend Alexis Morley rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night to be by his side.
Alexis uploaded a photo of the couple on her Instagram. It was the last photo of the two together taken on 15 March 2020 in upstate New York. This was a few days before Adam took ill.
Their friend David Watts had clicked the snap which showed the couple walking and enjoying the winter sunshine on Poets’ Walk in Red Hook, NY. Speaking about the night when at 4 am Adam got a high fever, she wrote:
“We spent such a sweet week together, our roles kind of reversed because usually Adam was the one to take care of me. I tried to keep him comfortable, nurse him back to health, as we waited for the fever to break.
“We were sure it would, just like any other crappy flu. But 7 days later things got worse instead of better and I drove him to the hospital. I wasn’t allowed to walk in with him.”
“I drove home alone through a snowstorm terrified (the first time I’d driven a car in years), but we spent the night texting, making cute jokes, and feeling optimistic. He kept telling me how much he loved me and thanked me for saving his life. The next morning he was intubated and I never got to hear his voice again.”
Alexis describes the last day of Adam
Furthermore, Alexis goes on to describe the last day of Adam. She wrote:
“After 10 days of me and his truly incredible family and friend group drawing on every resource possible trying to help, I got a 3 a.m. call from the hospital telling me he wasn’t going to make it.
“I asked if there was any way I could see him, and they made special arrangements for me to be allowed into the COVID unit. It was a low-lit, grim, heavy place, the medical workers and I all hidden under layers and layers of PPE.”
She helped his family see him:
“Adam looked sweet, peaceful, beautiful. I’m so thankful that I got to spend that one last hour with him — and that I was able to connect Sadie and Claire and Bobbi and Steve through my phone’s FaceTime to say goodbye too. I like to think he could sense us all there, but he was deeply unconscious.”
About Adam’s illness
The New Jersey native Adam tested coronavirus positive. But soon he developed breathing difficulties and had to get hospitalized. The doctors put him on a ventilator and put him on heavy sedation and he was in a critical state.
But despite all efforts, the doctors could not save him. Alexis, also elaborated:
“Shortly after I arrived back at the house, Jordan, a male nurse who’d been so wonderfully compassionate in the covid unit, called to tell me that Adam had just passed, peacefully. He was holding his hand as it happened. It had been a dark, overcast day. But at that moment the sun came out for just a few minutes and lit up the entire sky. I love you so, so much, Adam.”
