“The worst is the pain, the post-sepsis, it’s not fun. It is really awful.
“But the best thing is, I got a second chance.
“I was in the intensive care unit here and I was highly dependent [whose nurses] were fabulous but at one point I felt really bad and for four days I cried, not wanting to die.
“I planned my own funeral, I wrote my songs, you have really crazy thoughts.”
She continued: “Day five, [Warwick and the kids] came to me and I was out of my body. I could interact but I couldn’t, it was like I wasn’t there.
“I was like oh my god I go, I can’t help it, but I kind of got used to it, I had to accept it.”
What else did Sammy say?
Sammy admitted that she thought about her “bucket list” and “regrets” in life, which was for not giving Warwick and the kids “enough time”.
She added, “On my tombstone, [it would have said] “I needed more time.”
Sammy said, “I’ve slowed down now, I’m a lot calmer. I won’t miss a second with my family. “
In the meantime, Warwick spoke of his wife’s terrible struggle for health.
He told ITV News, “The worsening you’re seeing in sepsis is pretty quick.”
