A veil of silence fell over Donna Bullard’s life on a winter’s day in January 2021. Her husband, Roger, a brave Vietnam veteran and a man of unbending patriotism, was claimed by an insidious enemy. A respiratory foe, COVID-19, exacerbated by a system’s seeming negligence and cold indifference. Ultimately causing Roger to fall victim of the deadly protocols.
Roger and Donna’s life was an emblem of happiness and companionship; a cherished existence anchored on mutual respect and love. They chose each other every day. But a sinister battle with COVID-19 pulled Roger into the maw of deadly hospital protocols and policies that proved catastrophic. His life, too precious to be just another statistic, was tragically diminished.
Their ordeal started on December 17th, 2020. COVID-19 infected their home, their sanctum. Knowing Roger’s compromised lung health due to Agent Orange exposure during his Vietnam service, the couple sought immediate help, following the COVID protocol medications recommended by frontline doctors.
Their home transformed into a makeshift hospital. Roger’s persistent cough echoed through the walls, a grim reminder of the enemy they were combating. But the contagion proved too tenacious for Roger’s already compromised lungs. On December 27th, Donna discovered Roger shaking all over, his oxygen saturation perilously low. He was rushed to the hospital, leaving Donna behind, quarantined by her own bout with the virus.
For Roger, the hospital turned into an unwelcoming fortress. His spouse was denied access. He was denied the treatments she pleaded for: Ivermectin, monoclonal antibodies, hydroxychloroquine. In their stead, he was administered remdesivir against his wife’s wishes. Each day bore witness to his deteriorating condition. His double pneumonia, his oxygen-deprived body, his hope seeping away. A cruel prognosis: the doctor, the harbinger of grim tidings, told him he might not survive.
In his isolation, Roger was deprived of not only the treatments he needed but also the loving care of his family. A litany of pleas from Donna for information and involvement was met with evasive answers and cold rebuffs. The nurses seldom visited him because of the cumbersome protective gear. Roger spent his last days battling alone, fighting to hold onto life, a shadow of his once vibrant self.
On January 9th, 2021, Donna’s world collapsed. Roger’s battle ended, taking with it a cherished husband, a father, and a patriot. Donna was left to grapple with the aftermath of a man reduced to lab numbers, hospital codes, and impersonal treatment plans.
