SHE RECEIVES ONE CALL FROM ONE DOCTOR HER HUSBAND’S 2.5 WEEK STAY IN HOSPITAL
Wife Pleads with Doctor to Give Her 15 Minutes to Ask a Friend About Remdesivir for Her Husband in Hospital, but Doctor Refuses and Orders it Anyway
My husband, Earl Clifford Butler IV, passed away August 23, 2021, due to hospital protocol. My entire family had Covid; we are pretty sure it was the Delta variant but my husband’s oxygen fell below 93% and we were told he needed hospital care. He was in the hospital for nearly 2-1/2 weeks. I was not allowed to see him; however, we would text message. I would call the hospital several times a day for updates.
My husband complained about not being fed for several days which I found odd. If your body is fighting a disease, I feel it needs energy to help to fight it off but I’m not in the medical field. Another thing I found interesting is that they started giving him anxiety medicine, which he never ever took. But the most shocking of all is that I got one call from one doctor his entire stay - I know the hospitals were overwhelmed with patients but I found it odd that they wanted my verbal permission to administer Remdesivir. I got the call around midnight; I had just fallen asleep 30 minutes before. I pleaded with the doctor to give me 15 minutes to call someone - I had two doctor friends on standby who said to call if I ever had a question but the doctor refused to allow me 15 minutes. I was shocked! I said I need 15 minutes and I’ll call you back. He said nope, I’ll send it through and if the pharmacy fills it, he will get the treatment.
My husband was administered Remdesivir and his condition dramatically changed. He went from being on the BiPap to going to a high-flow machine to something happened and he signed off to be on a ventilator. Soon the nurses told me he had blood coming out of his nose and they couldn’t tell me why. They rotated him and though he was a bigger guy, they said they would do it every 12 hours.
One or two days later, they called stating he needed kidney dialysis, which I questioned and demanded more answers. How can I authorize a treatment with little to no information about his wellbeing, although I knew that retaining waste in the body was bad? So I said, “Yes.” The nurse did dialysis and had to end it because his blood pressure was really high. How odd? Now another problem he had not had before. The next night they called and said he went into cardiac arrest, they could not resuscitate him and he passed away.
I have been inclined to share this story before, but it is very painful. We were not ready for him to pass away. I would gladly share this story if it helps to educate others about what is actually going on.
