My dad passed on January 20, 2022. He passed away from covid. It all started in December we all came out positive. My dad and I came out positive the same day. I had a fever for 4 days straight. And he had a headache. My mom was going back and forth helping me with my at the time 4 month old and 1 year old. After my fever broke I was finally able to go see my dad. I immediately decided to take him to the ER. They took him in December 20. The next day I had to take my brother to the ER. On his birthday. He came out 3 days later. I was able to FaceTime my dad on the 27th. But it was really hard for him to speak. A nurse was there by his side with his oxygen mask. I remember the last conversation I had with him everyday. The next morning the dr called me to tell me he had Intubated my dad. January 12. They called to tell me there was nothing else they can do. It was my birthday they told me to decide to keep him as full code or do not resuscitate they strongly suggested against full code because his lungs were not getting any better they told us that even if they did cpr on his. His oxygen levels were no good it would do more harm than good. On the 17 they asked us if we had decided. We wanted to keep him full code. They jst kept telling us it would do more harm we did what they suggested. And they gave us the ok to go and see him. January 17 was the last day I got to see my dad still alive I got to speak with him cry to him. I saw him shed a tear. On January 20 they told me it was going to happen anytime now as soon as midnight hit January 21 I received the the worst phone call of my life. I still remember the nurse telling me”it happened pretty fast” they didn’t let us see him that night we saw him until his funeral February 18. My youngest sister’s birthday was the 25 of January and my oldest boy turned 2 2 days after his grandpas funeral I’m having a hard time.
