Sylvester “Sly the wine Guy” Taylor was an amazing, hardworking husband and father whose life was cut short because of the lack of early treatment provided through Primary Care Physicians and ineffective hospital protocols which included the use of Remdesivir, dexamethasone and in the end, morphine.
He was admitted to AdventHealth Celebration Hospital on July 28th 2021. He was having trouble breathing and his blood sugar level was too high. Throughout his entire stay, it was as though the doctors focused more on our vaccination status rather than getting him well. This story has so many twists and turns but I will highlight a few things that raised red flags for my mother and me.
• My mother initiated every single call to the hospital to find out what was going on. When she finally got through to speak with someone she was told “we already spoke with the patient, ask him.”
• My mother asked one of the hospitalists if he would be willing to look at the Frontline Covid Critical Care Alliance protocol using Ivermectin.
(https://covid19criticalcare.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/FLCCC-Alliance-MATHplus-Protocol-ENGLISH.pdf) He said yes. My mother takes the time to print, put it in an envelope, seal and bring it to the front desk, per his instructions. The Hospitalist later tells my mom he read the documents, shared it with his
colleagues and told her that they won’t be able to do that protocol. However, my mother found the envelope and it was still sealed, sitting at the front desk
• We later found out through the patient portal, my dad was given Remdesivir. We found out this treatment costs more than Ivermectin.
• Patient Portal notes also have the following words: “still insistent on not getting vaccinated”
• After about a week of being there, my dad no longer had covid his oxygen level was stable and could have one visitor, which was my mom. During this
time, he did not get physical therapy. He was also supposed to be going to a rehab facility. My parents waited to hear back from the hospital case worker.
On 8/30, the case worker follows up and mentions she was having trouble finding a location that would take “unvaccinated patients”
• August 30th, my dad ends up back in ICU because the doctor stated he “thinks they may have lost his pulse” but my dad was fine, they put him back in ICU on the COVID floor.
• The hospital did not do everything in their power to save my father’s life. In fact, when we asked them for the second time to try the Ivermectin protocol,
we were told it “was water under the bridge at this point.”
• Throughout this entire ordeal doctors and staff have stated “that’s why we encourage people to get vaccinated”
• My dad was constipated for several days, and when my mom asked if they could give him an enema, the nurses said they contacted the doctor to see if they could give him something and they gave him prune juice.
• There was an occasion when he also sat in his own waste for hours.
• My dad was assigned 9 doctors
• Monoclonal Antibodies treatment was not even offered as an option.
• We have heartbreaking text messages from him. He was afraid. He even mentioned to me that he felt like the hospital staff was “playing games” with him. Especially after being downgraded, being told he was going to a rehab facility and then ends up back in ICU.
The Push For The End
“Your husband is basically suffocating and you’re putting off the inevitable.”
We were getting ready to seek representation to initiate the Right to Try Act but ran out of time. On September 4th at about 8am, we got a text from my dad saying that he was coming out of the ICU. Two hours later we get a call from the hospital urging us to get there as soon as possible. When we arrived at the hospital, the doctor pulled my mother aside (still within earshot) and told her “your husband is basically suffocating and you’re putting off the inevitable.”
We were basically being pressured into making a decision, either put him on a ventilator or take off the bipap. My dad did not want to be intubated. When they removed the bipap mask from his face, the nurse mentioned they were going to give my father something to help make him more comfortable. Turns out it was morphine. On September 4th, at approximately 5pm, my dad passed away. He was 61 years old.
Amid all this, my aunt was admitted to the Bartow hospital the same week as my dad, a different hospital. She was returned home 7 days later, still with COVID as an outpatient. I took a personal leave from work to care for her full time. Part of her treatment included budesonide. The week before my dad passed, she no longer needed assistance and was no longer oxygen dependent. She is alive today. My aunt, myself and my mother have the antibodies.
The Punishment For Unvaxxed
“.....to make an example out of my family and I because of our personal decisions not to take the vaccine.”
What happened to my father was horrific. He was an incredible man. He worked as a Convention Services manager at Walt Disney World. He had been furloughed since last March and the day before he died, he was offered his job back. We truly believe this was an attempt to punish and make an example out of my family and I because of our personal decisions not to take the vaccine. Since my dad’s passing, I have heard of stories like ours from people in different cities and states all over the U.S.
