The wife of slain Haitian President Jovenel Moïse has shared the first photos showing herself laid up in a Florida hospital bed as she recovers from the assassination of her husband that left her wounded.

“Thank you for the team of guardian angels who helped me through this terrible time. With your gentle touch, kindness and care, I was able to hold on. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” First Lady Martine Moïse said in a tweet Wednesday night, along with a photo of herself appearing anguished.

She added, “This pain will never pass.”
