He was my rock, my one true love, and my best friend.
He was a wonderful father of five and grandpa to nine, one of which he never got to meet.
The Medical Mistreatment
“They kept him on morphine and oxygen to where he was always out of it.”
My husband of 35 years tested positive for Covid on November 19, 2021, and ended up in hospital on November 22, 2021. I dropped him at the ER and was told I wasn’t allowed to be with him. I sat in my car for 5 hours and had to call to get answers as to what was going on and was told he was being admitted. He sat in the ER until one in the morning before being moved to a room. I wouldn’t have even found out had he not called and told me. The doctors told him from day one if he got on a ventilator he wouldn't come off. "Do this or you’ll die. Go on this, it's your only hope."
They never kept me updated and I had to call multiple times a day to even find out things and was always told he was resting comfortably and stable and that was it. Trying to get answers was impossible. They kept him on morphine and oxygen to where he was always out of it. He was starting to show a little improvement but after five days they put him on Baricitinib and he started to decline rapidly. I asked what they were doing to treat him and was told they were out of options and followed protocol.
Trying to Kill Him
They told him BiPAP was his only hope, but it dried his mouth and throat out so much, they wouldn’t let him have drinks of water or even try to cough up the flem in his throat. He would hit the call button and would take hours for a nurse to answer or come into his room. He would literally text me that he felt they were trying to kill him. By the time I was finally allowed to see him he was so bad that he couldn’t take it anymore and passed away on December 3rd, 2021. I feel the doctors failed him as they didn’t try every possible medicine to save him as they were following a protocol, they kept medicines from these patients. Keeping loved ones from being with them to give them hope and strength to fight is wrong, especially if short-staffed as they claim. Let family in to help and support their loved ones.
He Was My Rock
“These people need to be stopped and held accountable.”
He was my rock, my one true love, and my best friend. We did everything together. He was a
wonderful father of five and grandpa to nine, one of which he never got to meet as she was born while he was in the hospital. His love for the outdoors and his family was unconditional and he was always there to help anyone. He had just retired and now can’t enjoy life as we had planned. I had to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, and our Valentine's Day Wedding Anniversary without him. My world was taken from me all because of greedy money-hungry people who denied him proper care. These people need to be stopped and held accountable. Now I am struggling and fighting just to save my home where all my memories are. I pray for everyone who has gone through this and lost a loved one.
