HUSBAND TELLS HIS WIFE FROM HOSPITAL THAT THEY ARE NOT FEEDING HIM, GIVING HIM WATER, OR ALLOWING HIM TO GET OUT OF BED
Doctor Tells Patient’s Wife That They Have been Having “Really Good Results with Remdesivir”
Stan and I had been through so many hospital visits before this one. I was always allowed to stay except one time when he was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for heart bypass surgery for 24 hours. Keeping us apart during the last visit was inhumane, in my opinion. When I took him to the emergency room, he was having trouble breathing. I told him on the way to the hospital, I didn’t want to take him because I was afraid they were going to kill him! He said the hospital had saved him twice before and I should be more positive!
We both refused the Remdesivir in the Emergency Room and the nurse immediately became indignant. She said he was being transferred to the Covid floor and I could not see him! I said I wanted to talk to the doctor first because I wanted him to be given Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine. The doctor did not call until the afternoon of the next day. When I spoke to him, he said that those drugs were not available. He said that they had really good results with Remdesivir since they had been using it the last 20 months to treat Covid.
Stan had his cell phone and called me and said they were not feeding him, giving him water, or allowing him to get up out of bed. I would call the nurses’ station and when they answered (which wasn't often), they said they would go and check on him! That time of hospital stay was horrible!!! Thank God, I left his cell phone.
Stanley’s oxygen level was only getting worse so I consented on day 2. On day 3, the doctor called and said he was continuing to get worse and he was going to have an ICU doctor look at him. On day 4, he called and said the ICU doctor wanted to move him but not that day. I told him they better not intubate him till I talked to him! Then on Day 5, I got the call that they were moving him to the ICU. They wanted to put him on a ventilator. I told them, “NO,” until I could see him.
I drove to the hospital and was allowed to go on the Covid floor to see my husband. We talked and prayed together about this. I told him I would fight them if he didn’t want to do this; he moved over his oxygen mask and said, “I’m tired.” Then began our five days in the ICU, which was another story!
