After opting out of getting vaccinated, a Florida lady who battled COVID-19 in the hospital came home to find her husband dead of the disease in their bedroom.

Lisa Steadman, 58, is mourning the death of her husband, Ron Steadman, 55, whom she discovered dead at Winter Haven Hospital after battling COVID-19 for more than a week.

"It was like walking into a horror film, and I wish I had never seen him like that because I can't get that picture out of my head," Lisa Steadman tearfully told FOX 13.

Ron's doctor informed Lisa that her spouse had died as a result of COVID problems. The Steadmans had not been immunized.

She stated that they were hoping to feel safe enough to take the vaccination. But that after her terrible experience, she will take it as soon as she is allowed.

"Both of us felt that it hadn't been tested enough yet," Steadman told WFLA. "Now after being in the hospital and talking with my doctor, when I [can] take it, I will in September.'

Lisa's misery began when her husband was diagnosed with COVID-19 at a walk-in clinic before receiving her own positive COVID findings.

Steadman said her husband was in good health and everything appeared to be fine despite the positive result.

"They sent him home with medicine and stuff because he wasn't in distress or anything. It was just like he had a bad cold," she said.

On the other hand, Lisa got COVID-19 and had to be brought to the hospital after passing out.

She claimed that while in the hospital, she began to experience COVID-19's more severe symptoms.

She remembered how frail she had been at one point.

Steadman stayed in the hospital for more than a week, keeping in touch with her husband, who was recovering at home.

Ron told Lisa his phone wouldn't charge a few days into her visit. After she couldn't reach him, she requested Winter Haven police to check on her husband.

When cops conducted a wellness check on Ron, everything appeared to be fine. Still, when Lisa was discharged from hospital two days later, on August 18, she made the shocking discovery.

In addition to Ron's death, the couple's dogs were near death due to a lack of food and water, according to

Lisa had to pay a $800 cleaning crew to clean the area where her husband's remains were found and replace bedroom furnishings on top of losing her husband.

"They were in there all of 15 minutes. They cut the part of the mattress that had the waste on it," Steadman said.

She's using a Facebook campaign to help pay for the unforeseen event, which has so far raised over $3,000.

Steadman claimed she was re-admitted to the E.R. on Wednesday and is still dealing with COVID-19 symptoms.
