It all started when Warwick’s wife Sam was rushed to A&E.

Warwick recalled the incident and said that his wife felt “absolutely terrible” – before being rushed to hospital by the doctors.

The 51-year-old said as her symptoms got worse “she was becoming drowsy, weak” and even “hadn’t been to the toilet in over 24 hours…”

“Fortunately for us, our doctor recognized Sam’s symptoms and told us to head to A&E immediately with a suspected case of sepsis,” said the actor-turned-comedian.

“It’s so hard to see someone you love more than anything in the world fighting to stay alive without the strength to even roll over in bed,” the actor added.

Davies told The Sun about the minutes before his wife was taken into the operating theatre and revealed he was “sort of saying goodbye.”

“Our family gathered by her bedside; although optimistic, we were sort of saying goodbye in case Sam didn’t survive.”

“The next few hours were the longest of my life as I waited on the ward with our children in the empty space left by Sam’s hospital bed…” recalled the star.

After breaking down in tears, the actor said he “hoped it would not symbolize a future for us without her.”

But, thankfully, Sam made it through the operation…

Warwick told the tabloid that doctors said the infection “had ravaged every cell in her body causing depletion to vital vitamin and mineral levels,” which meant that, even after being discharged from hospital, she would have to be cared for at home to make a full recovery.

But he said his wife just isn’t the same after battling sepsis…

“To this day Sam still feels the effects of sepsis and some PTSD from her experience. If I’m completely honest, I do too,” said Davies.

And he even urged others to get help whenever they begin to feel unwell.

“I hope her story will stay with someone which will, in turn, save a life. In these times, when someone’s poorly, it’s automatic to think Covid but please don’t overlook sepsis,” the actor wrote on twitter.

Since then Warwick has expressed gratitude and said: “We never take life for granted now, living each day as if it were our last…”

“I appreciate and cherish every moment that Sam and I spend together,” he concluded.
