Peggy H.'s Story

Choctaw, OK

Why can’t we be with our loved ones? Why do they suffer alone? Are we not still in America?

I pray that God opens everyone's eyes, hearts, and ears.

The ER


When Raymond got sick we went to the ER and he tested positive for covid. They were waiting for my results. He went home with no steroids or antibiotics because they said they don’t give that for covid pneumonia. They told him they were faxing things and they would call him in a day or two, but they never did. He got a high fever and diarrhea so he went back to the hospital and they admitted him.


His Lungs Needed Rest

“They said he needed a day or two to rest and a ventilator would give him that.”

I called him the first night and he said he was very tired from what they were giving him. He never called again. A nurse called and said he was not going to make it and he needed a ventilator. I had covid and was very sick myself. Even though the hospital never called to confirm I had Covid, I knew I had it and I was so scared. They said he needed a day or two to rest and a ventilator would give him that. I said sure baby take that break and fight like hell so you can come back home. He was on a bipap and I heard him say in a muffed voice ok. I never heard his voice again or saw him alive again.


Isolation


That is the most horrific thing a person can go through. And after they vented him a nurse called and asked if I wanted to facetime him. Wow. I was never offered that while I could see him and he could see me. This is the most inhuman thing I have ever seen in my life. Why can’t we be with our loved ones? Why do they suffer alone? Are we not still in America? Do we still have a say or can you only get what hospital protocol says you can have while sick? I pray that God opens everyone's eyes, hearts, and ears.
