Rodney's Story

Syracuse, Indiana

She was and always will be, no matter how long I live, my Best Friend.

My Mother, Christina Kuhn, was a fighter.

Almost Ready to Exit

“….put on a ventilator and shipped to Indy against my Mom's wishes.”

My Mother, Christina Kuhn, was diagnosed by Warsaw Indiana hospital on November 17th, 2021, as having COVID 19 Pneumonia. They discharged her hours later. On November 21st, 2021, she was brought to Goshen General Hospital, Indiana, where she was taken into inpatient care and she was given supplemental oxygen and asthma medications and breathing exercises. She was almost ready to exit the hospital.

On November 29th, Indianapolis University Hospital demanded from Goshen General that she be put on a ventilator and shipped to Indy against my Mom's wishes. 5 hours later, My Mom suddenly had severe lung damage and was put under sedation for the next month. During that time, two holes were "accidentally" blown into her right lung, causing a 2nd Pneumonia. She died on December 29th. She had no severe lung damage before the ventilator..... My Mom was fine at Goshen Hospital.... This is happening to millions of people worldwide. This is not a joke. People are being put on ventilators against their wishes, and they die from it. Mom was one of them. Believe what you want, but this is the truth, this is reality.

A Fighter

My Mother was a fighter, a visionary, someone who put her mind to something and went after it. I suppose that's one of the many reasons why she and I got along and were as close as we were. She was outspoken, articulate, intelligent, a conversationalist, someone you'd love to have around to discuss anything from gardening to political affairs. She was very talented and was gifted by God with many talents, whether it was with crafts, writing, illustrations, sketch art, you name it, even youtube videos. She seemed to be able to do anything she put her mind to.

She Helped Me Succeed

"I tried to impress her with my own accomplishments in life."

I'm the same way on a lot of things, but she held more talents. She outdid me and many others on those things for sure. She was a little unsure of herself but her confidence in herself and her abilities rubbed off on everyone. She was a woman who knew and understood what she wanted and she went after it. She instilled in me the same virtues and I tried to impress her with my own accomplishments in life. My Mother helped me to succeed in ways that I never could have imagined. And for that, I owe her a debt of gratitude.

Selfless Love

“Her efforts never went unnoticed.”

My Mother always looked out for the ones that she knew and loved and she tried to help whenever and however she could. Her efforts never went unnoticed. She was someone who took action, whether others noticed or not. Christina was someone who also had a major sense of humor. I cannot tell you how many times I made her laugh, or how many times she would make me and others laugh to the point of tears. She was a modern, down-to-earth person. She was quick to make decisions and I tried to follow her example throughout life.

In The Arms of Jesus

I was always very close to my Mother, and she's who I always went to for advice, assistance, strength, and support in times of weakness and self-doubt, especially in the last 10 years. She never failed to help me in those times and with those matters at hand. She never failed me. She was and always will be, no matter how long I live, my Best Friend. I will forever be appreciative of everything that she did for me. Mom, thank you for being the best Mother in the world. I love you and I hope one day that we will meet again. Until then, I will keep your memory alive every day through fond memories that I shared together with you. Rest In the Arms of Jesus.

So very sorry for your loss Rodney, we believe your story because we've all lived through that same nightmare. Hearing you describe your mom I would love to have sit in that same room with her!
