She Had Dementia And They Said She Consented To Remdesivir
She was diagnosed with kidney disease just six months prior
My aunt is not allowed to speak to us on the phone. We called several times and Nurse always answered. She was given remdesivir even though they had her chart as they had diagnosed her six months prior to that with kidney disease. They also knew she had dementia, so it wouldn’t matter what they said to her she could not answer for herself. By the time I called to check on her and the nurse told me I had on her second round of the medicine I started screaming at them telling them. Why didn’t you follow the protocol you know she had kidney disease you have killed her! The nurse became very quiet. I’m gonna have to look at the records to see how many days it shows for remdesivir and any other drugs they gave her as well as if she were using a mechanical ventilator.
My Aunt Linda Huffman was taken by daytime caregiver to Memorial Hermann Katy Urgent Care – she tested positive for Covid on 02/25/2023, although we never saw the actual test results so I do not know if she actually had COVID or just COPD. Had breathing problem – most likely from COPD current diagnosis. The caregiver finally went home. The evening of 02/26/2023, she was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and admitted sent to ICU which is isolation. Her COPD aggravated the COVID if she actually had COVID and was given REMDESIVIR TREATEMENTS!!
I called hospital Sunday evening, 02/26/2023 – to check on her – the Asian nurse on duty said that they had given her a couple of treatments with Remdesivir –I began to cry and yell at this person asking her, “why would you give a patient with acute kidney disease this medicine – protocol calls for testing kidney function to make sure this medicine is ok – It is not ok for elderly, acute kidney diseased patients.” After I said this, she became very quiet and said she would talk to the doctor. I said, “you guys just killed her!”

Memorial Hermann Katy – where she was for this stay, is the Hospital that diagnosed her on 9/18/22 with acute kidney disease so it was on her record along with the COPD and Dementia diagnosis. My sister Holly is medical power of attorney, she was at her home sick – my Aunt was taken by Ambulance to the Hospital. My sister, being sick, did not go up to the hospital and obviously never signed any kind of consent form. She never consented in writing to this drug, and neither did my other sister or I agree to it. My Aunt, having Dementia could not have legally agreed to this drug either and as the hospital had her Dementia diagnosis right there on her chart –they knew this as well.. My sisters and I have taken care of my Aunt basically her whole life. She had no children and called us her own. I had 2 mothers – my biological mother was her sister and best friend. They were together until my mom passed away 05/01/21 – my Mom made us promise that we would continue to take care of my Aunt/Mom as long as she lived – of course we would – there was no question!
My Aunt Linda was transferred on March 2, 2023 back to Park Manor Nursing Home to recover. At Park Manor the nurses thought she was a visitor because she was doing great, participating in activities. My sister and I went to see her – she seemed to be doing well, but we did notice that her skin color looked “YELLOW” This was strange because we had never noticed this before. She also kept complaining that it felt like she was having brain freezes?
She was doing fine until 02/13/2023, when the nurses said she seemed ill – possibly a UTI and low blood pressure and was sent over to Tomball Regional Hospital to have it checked out. They did a CAT scan which was fine, and then tested for UTI – which she had. She was having a lot of pain in her stomach it was hard/distended, and she had trouble breathing, most likely COPD exacerbation. They said that her kidney function was at 4%! They said you could try dialysis but’s that’s not a guarantee. All we could do now is set up Hospice because her kidneys were failing. We stayed with her while at Tomball Hospital – she was in horrible pain – nothing at all they could do. Most of the time she did not know we were there, but we talked to her and my nieces all came up to see her – we all loved her so much. One day at Tomball Hospital, my sister, who is Medical Power of Attorney and I walked into the hall to talk to the nurse who was in charge of my Aunt. I said, “Holly, did you tell the Doctor about Memorial Hermann Katy giving Linda Remdesivir”. She said, “I cannot remember”. The nurse looked at me and said, “We don’t give that medicine here”. I told her that the medicine was a death sentence and she shook her head yes in agreement. She also told my sister to make sure the Doctor knew about the remdesivir. At this point it wasn’t going to matter because her kidneys were steadily failing.
She left Tomball Regional Hospital on Monday March 20th, 2023 arriving back at Park Manor for Hospice a little after 6:45 pm. She died on March 23, 2023 at 5:20AM
My Aunt was a wonderful person – she took care of my sisters and I since we were born. She took us all over the US and when we moved to Texas – she followed right behind us. My mom was her older sister and best friend. After my dad died, my mom and my aunt moved into a condo together. They had a blast doing anything and everything. I am still disgusted with our government’s abuse of the people of the United States. These hospitals, doctors and others were all paid for COVID diagnosis, the vaccine, REMDESIVIR which had no effect on COVID and was well known to cause Kidney and Liver Failure – but no one cared – it was all about the money. In fact – we picked up her death certificate and the doctor/Hospice person filled it out and said that she died from COVID with Renal Failure as 2nd reason for death. I am a licensed Private Investigator and I knew exactly what was going on. I contacted this Doctor and told her what I did for a living and that I was well aware of the legalities of a Death Certificate. I informed the Doctor that she did not die from COVID and when she left the hospital she was not put in a Covid room at Park Manor. I told her that she died from Renal Failure that was used at the Hospital as a “treatment” for Covid. So the Death Certificate has to be changed. After arguing the point with me, she finally agreed. So I have 2 death certificate – the first one that they attempted to use to get extra money from the COVID death, and the revised one that shows Renal Failure as the cause of death. Below you will see her discharge papers from Memorial Hermann Katy from 2022 when they diagnosed her with Kidney disease – they had her chart – but never paid attention, nor did they care.

It shows that the doctors in the hospital only cared about the money they got from giving her this drug. They didn’t care that she had kidney disease they gave it to her anyway, it’s all about the almighty dollar.
