Kate Garraway’s husband had ‘life-threatening’ sepsis

OHMYGOSSIP — Kate Garraway’s husband was rushed to hospital with “life-threatening sepsis”.
The 55-year-old presenter returned to ‘Good Morning Britain’ on Monday (01.08.22) after taking time off over the last few weeks when the health of her spouse Derek Draper – who has suffered a string of medical issues since contracting COVID-19 early in the pandemic – further declines, and she detailed to viewers and co-host Richard Madeley how a kidney infection had caused some dangerous complications.
Kate explained Derek had been in and out of hospital but for nothing major medically until 9 July when she was on air.
She said: “I got a phone call from the person who was looking after him saying, ‘Right, we’re really worried’. I whizzed home and it just sort of went boom from there.
“We called an ambulance, went to A and E, where they said he had very severe sepsis, life-threatening sepsis. So it was really dramatic.”
After praising the efforts of medical staff, Kate explained they needed to quickly find the source of infection and get Derek onto the right antibiotics.
She continued: “His blood pressure was so low.
“A really junior doctor said, ‘What did you think it might be?’ He knew it wasn’t Covid-19 because we tested before we left the hospital on the Thursday.
She continued: “I said, ‘Well I did wonder if it was a urine infection, but weirdly we couldn’t get anything for a sample.’ And they just went, ‘Kidneys’.”
“Unfortunately, his kidneys were really badly infected, blocked. The challenge now is to save them. So that’s where we’ve been for the last three weeks.”
Kate confirmed her husband is still in hospital “waiting for his next procedure” but is no longer on an intensive care ward.
She said: “One kidney is looking really good, just need to look at the other one. Still in high dependency.”
