August 30 – I began running a fever and it lasted for an entire week.
September 7, my oxygen saturation dipped into the low 80’s.
September 7, I felt that I would not survive the night and asked my wife to take me to the hospital.
I was diagnosed with Covid and placed on high concentrations of oxygen.
On September 11th, my family was told that my heart and lungs were affected and my only chance for survival was to be placed on a ventilator.
I remained on the ventilator for 18 days. Somehow, I survived the ventilation process.
I then had to battle GI bleeds that required seven different surgical procedures where I almost died several times.
I have been in a hospital bed for over 60 days and lost most of my muscle tone.
I am currently rehabbing to regain my ability to walk and function independently.
At no time whatsoever did anyone force me into taking medical procedures.
Without the help of my doctors, wife, daughter and family members, I would have died.
When I have recovered, I will give you a better account of my journey to hell and back.
Please do not write nasty emails to my family or me as we have no ulterior motives. I am not an operative or disinformation agent.
Thanks for your understanding.
