Salt Lake City, Utah
My mother, who was "going to die" if she didn't use a ventilator, went home after a total of 8 days in the hospital.
Other patients were vaccinated, on ventilators, and had a very low chance of survival.
“My mom took it for two days and started having liver and kidney failure.”
Un-vaccinated people: My parents both came down with Covid around the same time. After about 6 days, they went to the doctor to see if they qualified to get monoclonal antibodies. My mom's blood oxygen level was too low, so they admitted her to the hospital. My dad was able to get the treatment and felt much better within days.
While at the hospital, the doctor began pressuring my mom to take Remdesivir stating, "If you were my mom, I would want you to take it." My mom took it for two days and started having liver and kidney failure. We told the doctor to take her off of it. She wasn't improving after 3 days, and so they transferred her to a major hospital 30 minutes away. As soon as she got to the other hospital, her assigned doctor tried to get her back on Remdesivir. He also stated that she needed to be on a ventilator if she was going to survive.
We Do Not Consent to Vent
As a family, we let him know that we were not a ventilator family and that she would not be taking any more of the poisonous Remdesivir. The doctor kept increasing the amount of pressure and oxygen on her machine (maxing it out) and using that as proof that she would be dead soon if we didn't put her on a ventilator. She said that she wanted to go home if she was going to die, and he told her that if she left, she would be lucky to make it to the freeway without dying. I asked him if he would let her try treatments that she thought might help. We wanted her on a vitamin C bag, Zinc bag, and vitamin D bag. He told her that if she stayed, he would get her those items. He never made any attempt to get her those items.
Freed From Harm
“Once the hospital realized that they weren't going to make a ton of money on our family, they transferred her out of the ICU.”
When we bought over-the-counter supplements, he put the whole family on a conference call to shame me for undermining his treatment plan and "endangering her life." My sister started calling in every day to the nurses' station asking what my mom's blood oxygen levels were and if there were any improvements. After 3 days, my sister asked if they would lower the amount of pressure and see if her oxygen level stayed the same. It did. She started asking the nurses to lower the pressure and the oxygen levels each day to see if her levels would stay the same. They did. My mother, who was "going to die" if she didn't use a ventilator, went home after a total of 8 days in the hospital. Once the hospital realized that they weren't going to make a ton of money on our family, they transferred her out of the ICU and into the care of another doctor who actually cared. That's how she made it home.
Fortunate to Get Out
The ICU doctor and a few of the nurses that were bugged by our constant concern for our mom, really didn't like us. While my mom was there, I talked to two other family members of patients that were on ventilators in that ICU. The patients were vaccinated, on ventilators, and had a very low chance of survival. Their families were completely at a loss thinking that they had done everything that they could do to prevent what was happening. It was heartbreaking to witness.
