The two health workers found love as he battled the COVID-19 pandemic together at a hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.
“My plan today is to propose to marry my girlfriend who works as an emergency nurse,” Michael Senn, an assistant nurse at St. Luke’s Hospital, told ABC News. I expect a flawless request and she will say yes. “
Mr. Senna’s plan is to make a big request on the hospital rooftop, a very special location for him and his girlfriend Sage Smith.
Due to the pandemic, it has not always been easy for couples to spend time together.
“There were times when we were afraid to see each other. There are so many uncertainties, ”explains Michael Senne.
In his hand a bouquet of flowers, the man knelt in front of his future wife to ask her hand in marriage.
“We have been together for a long time, and I fell so in love with you. Would you do me the honor of being my wife, ”he said in front of his colleagues.
With tears in his eyes and without hesitation, Sage Smith said yes.
“COVID definitely gave us more time together and I think it helped us love even more,” says Michael Senn.
“I was much more worried about him because he works in the COVID intensive care unit and has been exposed to the virus for a longer time,” said Ms Smith.
But the request might not have happened. Sage Smith asked for a vacation from his boss. Aware of her surprise, she refused his request.
The couple hopes to hold their ceremony in August or September.
