A day after the relatives of policewoman Roxanne Sealy made a public appeal for help, she has shown signs of improvement as several of her fellow officers have come forward to donate blood.
According to Sealy’s aunt Alicia Wells, her niece has made significant improvements since Newsday visited the relatives at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Mt Hope Hospital on Wednesday. Wells said that yesterday morning, Sealy was sitting upright and conscious but was experiencing some pain from the wound.
“She was zoning in and out of consciousness this morning but she was aware of her surroundings and spoke to us briefly, she was very concerned about her children and kept asking who was in the waiting room. We did our best to reassure her that everything was going to be okay. She’s coming along alot and the hospital has been doing a great job.”
Wells revealed that relatives were hopeful that by the end of the weekend, Sealy would be well enough to be removed from the ICU to be placed on a ward at the hospital for further treatment. Wells confirmed that Sealy was taken off of the hospital’s ventilator and can now breathe independently.
Newsday understands that several colleagues from her recruitment batch donated blood yesterday.
