I wish I would have taken him home after he became more alert.
My husband leaves behind a wife and daughters that miss him so much. The pain is unbearable.
"You're his wife?" and I said "Yes" and then he said "Well you can't go in there."
My husband was diagnosed with Covid on November 14, 2021, and on the 18th he went unresponsive.
I called the ambulance and they came and got him, they took him to Beaumont hospital where I work so I went with him. His oxygen level started coming back up and he was a little confused but he knew who I was and as his levels started to improve he was doing better. We were texting back and forth because I had to go start my shift, no I'm not a nurse I'm in registration. He said they told him he was doing good so, of course, I was relieved. Then they moved him to ICU and I went to check on him. At first, the nurse said make sure you put the gown on and the rest of the PPE. I said "ok" then he said wait, "You're his wife?" and I said "Yes" and then he said "Well you can't go in there." which made no sense. My husband was telling me with his finger to come in and I told him I can't.
Put On The Vent
I went to check on him every day while at work and then after work, I would pick up my daughters and go back up there to see him and they put his phone on speaker so we could talk to him. The respiratory therapist told me one day he was improving and that of course got my hopes up. He was texting me and seemed better. Then one night the nurse called me from his phone and said he wants to be put on the vent and I said no let me talk to him. He said yes Wendy I can't breathe and he said I love you and I love the girls very much and that was the last time I heard his voice. He was on the vent for I believe 4 days and my daughters and I would go up there and have them put his phone next to him so we could talk to him.
The Protocol Went As Planned
“They had him on Fentanyl and Remdesivir, and some other stuff.”
I remember when he first went into ICU I asked if they would put him on Ivermectin and I was told he was past that and the same with the antibodies. Then I was in the shower and had gotten a call from his doctor stating he's not going to make it that we should get up there and at this time they weren't allowing kids up there. Well, I told them his daughter is 14 and she's coming up there. Then the doctor told me I don't get paid anymore for telling you this, but you should really be vaccinated. I was really pissed. Don't talk to me about being vaccinated. Oh also my daughter requested he be put on a lot of vitamin C and they gave him probably a child dose. They had him on Fentanyl and Remdesivir, and some other stuff, I do have his medical records. Also when I was going through the records I saw a report from The Gift of Life (Organ Donation) the same day he was put on the vent. I honestly thought I could trust my husband being there. I wish I would have taken him home after he became more alert. My husband leaves behind a wife and daughters that miss him so much. The pain is unbearable.
Thank you for letting me share my story
