A mum-of-five shared a heartbreaking plea before she tragically died after contracting Covid-19.
In her final post before she lost her battle to the life-threatening infection, she asked loved ones to pray for her recovery.
Karen Hobbs, 40, expressed her fears "she might not make it" and posted the statement before suffering a cardiac arrest.
She died while in an induced coma on January 19, leaving behind her beloved kids, reports Wales Online..
The "beautiful" and "loving" mum, from Cardiff, fell ill with coronavirus before Christmas and was taken to hospital on December 27.
The former easyJet air stewardess was previously "fit and healthy" before she quickly deteriorated.
Her family say they are unsure how she caught the virus as she rarely left home during the pandemic.
They have spoken out a week after her death to urge people to stick to lockdown rules.
Describing the days before Karen was admitted to hospital, Rachel, Karen's sister, said: "For the first couple of days she was at home. She couldn't do anything basically, she was in bed, had no energy.
"You see it on the TV when they're on the oxygen and everything but it's different when someone is in front of you doing it.

"It's probably the worst thing I've ever witnessed."
In a series of haunting updates, posts shared by Karen on Facebook give a glimpse of life in intensive care after being rushed to the University Hospital of Wales.
On December 28, one post reads: "Well I got sent home from hospital last night only to have to ring an ambulance as I couldn't breathe again so back in hospital…it's far to say Covid has well and truly kicked my butt!"
A further post two days later adds: "The lady in the bed opposite me has just died in front of me – from Covid. Poor, poor lady, the nurses worked so hard to get her back but she couldn't be helped.
"Let that serve as a warning to anyone who still thinks it's okay to break the rules."

But it was not until an update on January 2 that Rachel and her family realised how serious her sister's condition was.
A post shared online by Karen said: "Being place into an [induced] coma and warned that I might not make it, please everyone pray for me that I wake from this and come home to my kids. Terrified is not the word!"
Recounting Karen's last days, Rachel, 41, said: "We were called in the week before she passed.
"We all went in that Tuesday and the consultant came in and explained a little bit about what was happening and how ill she was. It was multiple organ failure they called it. He basically said 'we do think she's going to die'."
Rachel said: "She was just in a coma. She looked quite peaceful, she wouldn't have known anything about it.
"Then the kids went in to see her, they were really upset. They had a child psychologist there, explaining it to them.
"It hasn't sunk it. I didn't think it would be her, a fit and healthy person."
