Christi Paul stays home while her husband battles COVID

paulNew Day Weekend anchor and HLN correspondent Christi Paul has been staying home and nursing her husband while he battles COVID, she revealed on Instagram. Her co-anchor, Victor Blackwell, has been awaiting the results of his COVID test for twelve days. “I’m still waiting for results,” he said.

“Husband is positive with covid19. Girls & I are all negative,” Paul wrote on Instagram. “Haven’t been able to hold his hand or kiss his forehead . . . We all miss his presence at the dinner table, his laughter & his joshing us.”

Paul concluded, “But we know God gives us His strength when we’re weak & His wisdom when we’re confused & drained. This virus makes no sense. The testing, the paradigm, the transmission… I swear it’s all still a crapshoot.”

When she responded to a comment and offered an update, she said, “He’s actually a little worse today but it’s part of the ups & downs. He’s not in the hospital on a ventilator so I’ll take this. And I pray for everyone who is because this is rough.”

#SundayReminder that it all doesn’t depend on you. This popped into my head this morning as I feel the weight. Husband is positive with #covid19 Girls & I are all negative. For that I’m grateful bc I’m able to take care of him. Haven’t been able to hold his hand or kiss his forehead in 9 days though. We all miss his presence at the dinner table, his laughter & his joshing us. When I told Sadie he tested positive she asked “Is he gonna die?” I hate that her mind even went there. But we know God gives us His strength when we’re weak & His wisdom when we’re confused & drained. This virus makes no sense. The testing, the paradigm, the transmission…I swear it’s all still a crapshoot. There’s so much we don’t know. But I will rest on #Faith & #God Thank you to all of you for your encouragement, prayers & sweet words. Please never doubt the strength your simple words give to people. And I, for one, am eternally grateful. #ThankYou #Grateful #Family #LoveLikeNoOther #FaithOverFear #Proverbs #Bible #Wisdom #Prayer #Hope #Coronavirus
