A friend from high school recently passed away. I was told cause of death was cardiac arrest. His wife posted this on Facebook last night telling his story. Long read but if you have the time might be worth reading. This friend was taken over by conspiracy theories about 6-7 years ago; I.e chemtrails, Sandy hook and 911 being false flags for what it’s worth:
What follows below is a look into our family’s journey over the last few weeks. I share this to help anyone who may be on the fence about getting vaccinated or has chosen not to.
Eric stayed home from work on a Friday because he had had a slight fever, chills, and was achy, and he had the most awful cough. On Saturday he felt like he had a simple cold and thought it was silly that in order to go to work on Monday he had to be tested for COVID. He spent most of the day doing stuff in the garage and that afternoon went in for his test, which came back positive. Sunday he still felt fine until the afternoon. Then he started to feel nauseous and was super tired. On Monday and Tuesday he stayed in bed the entire day. He was super weak and coughing a lot. He didn’t want to eat because he had lost his taste too. Wednesday he felt a bit better but he started to have stomach issues. While his other symptoms got better the stomach issues were bad. He couldn’t eat anything at this point. It was also this day that Carson and I got tested. I tested positive while Carson tested negative. The only symptoms I had were a runny nose, a slight cough usually due to a tickle in my throat and I lost my sense of smell. My symptoms lasted about two days. Eric’s stomach issues, weakness, and tiredness lasted through the rest of the week. On Monday he attempted to go to work but was home by 10:00. The next day he finally went to the doctor because he was still having issues with his stomach. They told him to stay hydrated, attempt a bland diet and return on Monday if symptoms were still an issue. So Tuesday through Thursday he napped, slowly introduced more into his diet and finally seemed to be coming around. Friday I could see him outside in the garage and cutting the lawn while I was at work. Saturday he continued to do stuff around the house. He wasn’t back 100% but he was definitely better and we all felt he’d be back to work on Monday. On Sunday morning, as I came downstairs, he asked me to take him to the hospital because he was having a hard time breathing. I told him to go get dressed and I brought the laundry basket I had down to the basement. As I was down there, Carson heard him yell for me. I went upstairs and he asked me to call an ambulance. His breathing was more labored and he couldn’t get up. The ambulance arrived and they had him hooked up to oxygen instantly. They brought him out to the ambulance and left with just the lights on. Just around the corner from our house they had sirens on. The ER doctor said he went into cardiac arrest in the ambulance. They were unable to bring him back once they arrived in the ER. The ER doctor believes it’s possible he had a clot that caused the breathing issues and the cardiac arrest. He had high blood pressure but it had been under control. COVID caused his death. I’m certain that if he hadn’t had COVID he’d still be here today.
Eric wasn’t vaccinated. He didn’t believe in the shot and also didn’t believe COVID was a big deal. During a few conversations he had while at home he said he regretted not getting the shot.
I received my second shot on the Friday Eric stayed home initially. We obviously had the same strain of COVID. My experience with COVID was not even close to Eric’s. I simply felt like I had a normal cold.
Would Eric still be here if he had gotten the vaccine? We will never know but COVID is the reason he’s not here. I fully believe that if he hadn’t gotten COVID he’d still be here.
If you are still reading this and haven’t gotten the vaccine…..Please go get the shot! Don’t let your family go through what we are going through. I’ve never been so devastated in my entire life. I’ve lost the person that’s been by my side for the last 31 years. My kids have lost the man they called Dad and who was by far their biggest fan. If you don’t want to do it for yourself, get the shot for your loved ones!❤️
