He was my light, and suddenly my world was plunged into darkness, and life will never be the same without him.
My Son Mike was 42 years old, he was a hard-working, loving soul, he was married and had two boys ages 12 and 16.
We Knew The Danger
“Mike and I were already aware of the dangerous protocols they were using in the hospital.”
My Son Mike was 42 years old, he was a hard-working, loving soul, he was married and had two boys ages 12 and 16, he didn't drink, he didn't smoke, he loved his family and friends, he was always looking out for others, and would put his family and friends first before himself.
On Sept. 15, 2021, he had called and said that he had tested positive for Covid, now Mike and I were already aware of the dangerous protocols they were using in the hospital, but as the days went by he was getting worse and his oxygen levels were dropping, then on the 22 of September I get a text from his wife saying I'm taking him to the Emergency room, I immediately called his phone and asked him what he was doing in the hospital, he said I just need some oxygen, I could tell he was having trouble breathing, as he was gasping for air, and I was told they were giving him oxygen, of course, no one was allowed to visit him, but he spent the night in the Emergency room and then moved him to a room, I'm not sure when they started the Remdesivir, probably as soon as he was admitted all I was told was they were giving him an antiviral and steroids.
I Love You
Days went by and on the 22nd he texted me and said they were moving him to the ICU, he was getting worse, and by the 25, they had convinced him that he needed to go on a ventilator, he refused at first, but eventually caved and agreed, so when he called me and told me they wanted to intubate him I lost it! I started crying; I knew he was in trouble; he said it's only going to be for a couple of days, Mom, just so I can get my oxygen levels up; his last words were, I love you, Mom.
A Fighter Till The End
“On the 5th, I received a call from his wife saying he's not going to make it.”
Then I got a call from his wife on the 25th saying they're moving him to Strong Hospital, which is about an hour from where we live, they had him sedated, and still, no one is allowed to see him; all I could do was get updates from his nurse, they eventually had to start him on dialysis because his kidneys were shutting down, not once did they try to get him up and off the vent, by October 3rd, they finally would let one person visit for 15 min. A day, so his wife and I would take turns, on the 5th, I received a call from his wife saying he's not going to make it, so they did let my husband and myself in to see him, but only one at a time, he was still hanging on, still fighting for a life he managed to hang on until the 12th of October.My son was gone, he was my light, and suddenly my world was plunged into darkness, and life will never be the same without him.
