Venezuelan fitness model Michelle Lewin seems to be breathing a sigh of relief now that her husband Jimmy has been released from the hospital. On Friday, she shared a lengthy caption and gorgeous throwback photo via her Instagram page that shared the latest on the couple’s recent challenges.

Earlier this week, Michelle uploaded a fantastic video and revealed that Jimmy was being discharged from the hospital. Now that the couple has had a few days to get settled in again at home, she took to social media to share some additional updates.

Michelle wrote her lengthy caption entirely in Spanish and did not include an English translation as she often does. According to Google Translate, Friday marked one month since this difficult battle began.

She noted that the trauma from the past month felt as if it had all just happened a day ago. She explained that she had struggled with a lot of difficult emotions, such as despair, anxiety, anguish, and helplessness.

As the couple’s fans know, Jimmy is typically strong, happy, and energetic. When he was hospitalized and nearly died, Michelle had to face seeing him in a fragile and critical state.

Hoy 9 de octubre se cumple un mes de esta lucha en la que hemos batallado todos – Un mes en tiempo real suena como varios días, aunque para mí, todo pasó ayer. He vivido dias intensos, con tristeza, angustia, desesperación, ansiedad e impotencia – Siempre estuve acostumbrada a ver a mi Jimmy tan hiperactivo, fuerte, saludable, alegre y de la noche a la mañana, pasé a verlo en ese estado tan crítico, frágil y vulnerable – No ha sido fácil, aún tengo en mi cabeza esas imágenes tan frescas de su rostro y su cuerpo en una cama conectado a tantos cables y máquinas. Y realmente me di cuenta de muchas cosas – No importa quien seas, cuanto tengas, ni que tan saludable te veas por fuera. En ese momento no importa nada. Ni siquiera sabes donde estás, y es ahí cuando llega el miedo, tu peor enemigo, porque se apodera de ti , te paraliza y te envuelve para llevarte a la oscuridad – Ahi, te llegan tantas preguntas sin respuestas, y automáticamente le preguntas a Dios, ¿Por que a mí? ¿Por que a él? – En ese momento hasta puedes sentir que Dios te ignora. Pero con el tiempo todo encaja y te das cuenta que Dios no te pone pruebas que no puedas superar. Pero ahora se bien que cuando le hablas a Dios con el corazón y con FÉ, siempre te escucha. El poder de la oración es muy poderoso – Les quiero contar que Jimmy sigue mejorando todos los días, ha recuperado muchísimo la vista, está mas activo, me pide comida todo el tiempo ????, el edema de las piernas ha mejorado muchísimo – De hecho, ha perdido 14 kilos de agua????, sigue cansado por la poca fuerza de su corazón pero ahí vamos, un día a la vez – Yo estoy más tranquila, aunque duermo en alerta todo el tiempo con un ojo abierto ???? y el otro cerrado, jejejeje pero no me quejo, más bien estoy muy contenta de tenerlo conmigo 24 horas (ya tengo otra cara) ???? Gracias a todos por sus mensajes, me encantaría poder abrazarlos y zamparles un besotote gigante, pero al mismo tiempo me digo, es que son muchos y no terminaría este año jejejeje. ????????‍♀️????(broma). En fin ya me desahogue por aquí, gracias por leerme. Y por último ya este año nos quedan 12 semanas ¿Que te ha dejado este 2020? A mi mucho, pero quiero que se vaya YA ????❌2020 ???? @allenlhgfx

Jimmy has made incredible strides in recovering from his medical emergency. However, Michelle acknowledged that she still has all of the images in her head of her husband in a hospital bed, connected to a number of machines and cables.

Throughout this ordeal, Michelle has often referenced her faith. She did that again in this Friday update, noting that she strongly believed that the powers of prayer and faith were very powerful.

As for Jimmy’s condition, he has improved a little bit every day. Michelle explained that his eyesight had gotten somewhat better and he was getting more active. He was eating a lot and the edema that had built up in his legs had improved.

Even with all of those improvements, Jimmy has continued to struggle with fatigue due to the damage his heart sustained. Michelle previously noted that he would have heart surgery at some point, once his other organs had become stronger.

She added that she slept with one eye open, on alert, with Jimmy home. Despite that, overall she felt calmer now. Michelle was clearly relieved to have her husband back home with her and she expressed her gratitude to all of her fans for their messages and support.

Michelle’s post received nearly 400,000 likes and 8,500 comments in about seven hours. Jimmy may still have a significant battle ahead of him as he fights to regain his strength and health, but it’s clear that his wife is determined to pull him through this.
