Korie Robertson Felt 'Helpless' Leaving Pregnant Daughter Sadie at the Hospital amid COVID Battle
Sadie Robertson's COVID experience has been tough for the whole family.
Korie Robertson recalls the emotional day she had to rush her pregnant daughter Sadie to the hospital fighting COVID-19.
"When Sadie got pregnant - and she was still in her first trimester, that time when she was sick in the morning and dealing with fatigue - it was difficult," she says.
Due to strict health regulations, 47-year-old Korie was not allowed to go to the hospital with her daughter.
“I drove her to the hospital and just dropped her at the door,” she recalls. “I remember when she walked in I was just starting to cry in the car. It was really traumatic to think about leaving my little girl alone in the hospital while she is pregnant. "
"You feel really helpless when someone you love is alone in the hospital," she adds.

Sadie, 23, is expecting her first child, a little girl, with her husband Christian Huff. She tested positive for COVID-19 late last year after Huff, Korie, and their sister Bella all contracted the disease.
"Mine started with a really bad headache," Sadie said earlier about her symptoms on her WHOA That's Good podcast. "Like a different kind of headache than ever before - it was like a migraine behind my eye. Then I got the cough - my throat was so red and burned. It was terrible."
She also said she had experienced brain fog, body aches, loss of taste and smell, "vivid dreams" and trouble sleeping even though she was "so tired".

After experiencing dehydration from a combination of morning sickness and COVID symptoms, she checked into the hospital for several days. And while she has since recovered, Sadie has said the illness had a lasting impact on her entire family.
"I'm a very healthy person, I exercise a lot and eat pretty well. I take care of myself. I honestly thought if I got COVID it wouldn't be that bad. But no, I had it terrible," she said. "So don't think you'll be fine ... it's a really serious illness that you don't want to get."
