Experience in hospital:

He was supposed to be up and moving/seated in a chair/proned while in bed. This rarely happened to my knowledge. He expressed to his family and me that he wanted us to get him out of the hospital because they had given up on him. His doctors refused to give alternative treatments. Communication with me (his medical POA) was sorely lacking. He was isolated. I was allowed to see him through the glass once while he was in ICU. We had to talk over a phone and it was difficult due to his lack of oxygen. A few hours before he died, I was allowed in his room briefly, but I was completely encased in a hazmat suit and we were unable to talk to each other and I couldn't even touch him. He died alone with no family or loved ones to comfort him.

The Interview with Janet Shoemaker

If the truth were to come to light, I believe there was a concerted effort by government, pharma and the media to withhold life saving drugs for Covid patients, especially in the early days of the pandemic. I fear these same protocols are being used to this day. Doctors are afraid of losing their privileges if they don't follow 'guidelines'. This should be criminalized.

Garold Shoemaker Story
Written by Janet Shoemaker(wife)

My husband, Garold, and I both started coming down with cold-like symptoms in October 2020. We both took Covid-19 tests on our anniversary. They were positive. Four days later, my husband was having trouble breathing and our primary doctor told him to go to the emergency room. I drove him there and dropped him off at the door. I was not allowed to go with him.

He was admitted and started on the “Covid protocol”. This included administration of Remdesivir. I was not kept informed by staff of his condition or his treatment during most of his stay. Everyday, I had to make phone calls and sometimes I could speak to a nurse. No visitors were allowed so I couldn’t advocate for his care, see his condition with my own eyes, pray over him, and console him. Nothing. He was lonely, scared and desperate and so was I.

Additionally, he was supposed to be kept up, moving and also proned. Any time I spoke with him, none of this was happening. We were at the mercy of the hospital staff, who seemed uncaring. The evening of his death, I was allowed in because there were important papers he needed to sign. I was in full body hazmat gear. The headgear kept falling over my eyes, Garold couldn’t hear me because of the air being pushed through my mask. I had to wear gloves and so we were never allowed to actually feel each other’s flesh as I held his hand. He was having a hard time breathing with air being forced into his lungs and couldn’t talk to me because when he took off the air mask he couldn’t breathe.

We really had no last words. They made me leave him. In a few hours, he couldn’t take the distress anymore and took off his breathing mask. The nurses scrambled to give him drugs to help him as he slowly, agonizingly died from asphyxiation, alone and afraid. He had been confined to the death trap hospital for eighteen days. I am left with deep grief, flashbacks and guilt over the ‘what ifs’ and ‘if only I’d’. Garold left three children, two step-children, eight grandchildren, three step-grandchildren and many friends and relatives who mourn his loss terribly. A light was taken from this earth too soon. And my life will never be the same.
